Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme brought to us by the wonderful bloggers from The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books. There were options to do heroines from movies or TV shows or a certain genre since this was done before but I didn’t have a blog then. So this topic is all new to me!

Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books (no particular order because that’s just too hard!)

Throne of Glass

1. Celaena Sardothien (Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas): two words — female assassin! She can kill you with just one look — not really but close enough! She’s assassin with a soft, caring heart

clockwork princess
2. Theresa (Tessa) Grey (The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare): very loving, caring, selfless, willing to sacrifice her life for family and friends

3. Katy Swartz (The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout): refuses to sit in the sidelines, will fight to protect those she loves, forgiving, and she’s a fighter

hunger games
4. Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins): volunteers for her sister and fights for the rebellion, plus she has killer aim with her bow and arrow

sorcerer's stone
5. Hermione Granger (The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling): genius, trusting, courageous, and has a fiery spirit!

6. America Singer (The Selection Series by Kiera Cass): selfless, fights for what is right despite consequences, and has a big heart

Throne of Glass
7. Nehemia Ytger (Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas): she would die for her country and her people, continually fighting for their rights

8. Annabeth Chase (Percy Jackson & the Olympians by Rick Riordan): one of the best demigods ever! She helped saved the world against Kronos! Plus she’s an absolute genius and strategist.

9. Sydney Sage (Bloodlines Series by  Richelle Mead): she’ll surprise you! She’s smart and she turn anything to a weapon. She’s also a witch and fights against the evils of the world .. even if her family falls under that evil!

10. Penryn Young (Penryn & the End of Days Trilogy by Susan Ee): beyond selfless, going through great lengths to save and get her sister back, and fights for the freedom of a certain angel!

Who are some of your heroines and why?! Let me know in the comments below!

  1. Annabeth is on mine too! She rocks! My Co-Blogger Tori would absolutely agree on Katy Swartz too, the girl is obsessed with Armentrout. Great list and happy TTT!

  2. Ooh great list! I totally forgot about Nehemia, which is weird because I cried and everything. You’re right, she rocked.

    Great list! Except I opted for Luna instead of Hermione, everyone listed her already, no love for poor Luna :/

  5. Aw I love that you picked Nehemia! I expect to see a lot of Celaena and Katniss today but Nehemia deserves all of the praise too!

    It’s good to see so many strong girl characters in books. I didn’t see so many growing up. Though I was very, very happy to meet Meg from Wrinkle in Time when I was a girl.

    Here’s mine!

  7. Hermione just missed my list, and I am also a huge fan of America from The Selection.

  8. Oh Tessa Gray, what a woman! I am really loving your list as a whole! America really became a heroine I could really respect–I was really happy about that!

    Jennifer @ A Librarian’s Library–My TTT!


    • Thank you so much! It was hard deciding haha. I agree with you on America. She kind of annoyed me in terms of the whole love triangle but her growth in the series was fantastic!


  9. ChrissiReads says:

    Hermione very nearly made my list. She is an amazing character. Katniss and Celaena made my list this week, both very strong females! Great list!


  10. Celaena is on a lot of lists this week and it’s lovely seeing her get so much admiration.

  11. Annabeth and Hermione made my list too! Hermione is my soul sister. I didn’t have room for Katniss on my list and that made me a little sad because she is such a great female character- I mean girlfriend leads a revolution!
    Great List!
    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday

    America is one of my favorite characters, which is a surprise because I usually can’t love fully characters who can’t choose between two guys. That’s kind of the reason why Katniss didn’t make my list in the end. Annabeth made my list too, I love every character from Percy Jackson. My favorite thing in Sydney was the character development, she changed a LOT since the first book when she was mortified by vampires. I love that series so much.
    Awesome list! 🙂

    • Yes! i loved everyone from Percy Jackson, too! I agree, I think that’s why I see her so much as a heroine. Other than being totally kick butt, she went through a crazy transformation to protect those she loved, even when she was taught at a young age that they were evil beings lol.
