TTT: Top 10 Favorite Heroines from Books

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the BookishEach week we will post a new Top Ten list. Everyone is welcome to join.   

This week's topic is:
Top Ten Favorite Heroines from Books

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)
1. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games: Of course she made my list. She was super smart and had some really great ideas on how to keep herself and her community safe. 

2. Cinder from Cinder by Marissa Meyer: She has to save so many people. From her friends, to her community, to her love, to herself. She has so much to do and it seems like she can never do it all. But in each book in the series, she always prevails. 

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)
3.  Celaena from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: I really liked her in this book and The Assassin's Blade because just from those two books alone I saw how bad ass she was. 

4. Annabeth Chase from the Percy Jackson series:  She's been one of my favorites for forever. She's super smart and she helps Percy and herself in so many situations. She's an amazing girl. 

Rebel Belle
5. Harper from Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins: Harper is one of those chicks that can whoop your butt and as soon as she's finished take her lip gloss out of her clutch and walk away. And her snarkiness is above awesome. She's super cool and I wish I could be her when I grew up lol 

6. Alex from Half-Blood by Jennifer L. ArmentroutOf course I had to put this one in this list. She literally fights EVERYONE she comes in contact with and her stubbornness doesn't do anything but make it worse. Until, well they finally make it better. 

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)Something Strange and Deadly (Something Strange and Deadly, #1)
7. Tessa from Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare: She went on to do some crazy things during this series. She also made some really weird and cool friends along the way. (Meaning Magnus of course!) 

8. Eleanor from Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard: I've only read this book in that series, but at the same time, I know a good heroine when I see one. She could put out a zombie's eyes with her parasol and then keep going like it wasn't anything. 

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)Eleanor and Park
9. Hermoine from the Harry Potter series: No she wasn't the main character, but at the same time, there was so much that had to be done on their adventures and only she could have done them. For example, the big thing in book two that's discovered at the end... Only she would have been able to figure that out. 

10. Eleanor from Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell: She dealt with a lot of things in her home life. She was a smart girl that dealt with meanness everyday and still she went on with her life. I was proud that she could get through those things because I never would've been able to do what she had done!
