So this week's Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and The Bookish) is a rewind, meaning I get to pick any past topic. Soooo I picked: Top Ten Favorite Heroines! HOLLA AT MY FAVORITE FELLOW FEMALES.
So let's start with the obvious, because I mean this is me we're talking about.
John Green's female leads
I love his manic pixie dream girls. They are my favorite. (Note: I've only read Looking For Alaska, Paper Towns, and An Abundance of Katherines. But still. I'M READING TFIOS SOON I PROMISE.) They are so full of depth and complexities. I love re-reading his novels just so I can look for more about them.
I'm sure you guys saw this coming because of my review, but I'm still gonna say it: I freaking LOVE Ismae. She is smart, funny, and also AN ASSASSIN. I love her. She is one of my fictional idols.
Frankie from The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks
Pleeease can Frankie be the latest addition to my clique? Then my wolf pack can have four, AND we can have a wonderfully smart and determined chick in our clique that also makes up words and fantastic pranks.
Katniss from The Hunger Games Trilogy
This one's obvious.
Harper from Saving June
Harper pretty much rules, k? She's strong yet soft and funny and so, so real that it is unreal. Sometimes I felt like we were practically the same person, and for me that is one of the best feelings you can experience while reading.
Grace from The Wolves of Mercy Falls Series
Grace is a unique, interesting kind of heroine. She is not strong and she's not hilarious, but she creeps into your thoughts and stays there. It is most wonderful and I pretty much adore her.
Tris from Divergent
Tris? She is TOUGH. AS. NAILS. She follows her heart and then she throws knives at people and stuff. It is boss.
Mia from If I Stay and Where She Went
Mia is kind of like a Grace-type heroine but in a more understandable way, if that makes sense. She is a character that makes you feel like you could pluck her off the page and have a wonderful conversation with her. Also she's got such class.
Ava from Pink
Ava is SO CONFUSED. You cannot help but chuckle at her narration and her missteps while you love her and want her to just figure it out already.
Megan from The Iron Fey Series
You know what Megan does when her brother gets kidnapped in The Iron King? She's like, "K," and goes into the land of the freaking Fae where stuff tries to kill her. Dudes, if that isn't an anti-Bella, then I don't know what is.
