Top Ten Favourite YA/Fantasy Book Heroines!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

 It was really hard to narrow my favourite heroines down to just ten. I obviously had to leave quite a few out mainly my favourite heroines from classics such as Elizabeth Bennett and Jane Eyre. I've narrowed it down to mostly my favourite YA and fantasy heroines even though that was hard. I love these women because they're strong, fierce, powerful, intelligent and most of all real. They may be witches, assassins, Queens and cyborgs but underneath it all they're real women with real, complex emotions and fascinating lives. I feel like I've traveled to the ends of the earth with characters that I respect, love and empathise with dearly. Girl power all the way!

1. Feyre
2. Elisa
 3. Yelaena
4. Cinder
 5. Katniss
6. Daenerys
7. Hermione
8. Avry
9. Celaena
10. Evanjalin


  1. Great list! I included Katniss, Hermione, and Celaena. They're very popular today because they are pretty much the best. Your first two are books I need to read, and I've been seeing them on a few lists today which makes me want to read them even more!

  2. YES^^ Cinder, Katniss, Celaena and Feyre ♥ ALL deserving heroines and ALL favorites of mine!! I still need to read Fire and Thorns, the Study and Touch series as well as Finnikin of the Rock but I own most of them and hope to get caught up soon :D Awesome picks^^
