#Top Ten Tuesday #Favourite Heroines

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

How it works:

Jana from That Artsy Girl assigns each Tuesday a topic and then posts her top ten list that fits that topic. Anybody is welcome to join and create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. You can put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! 

Todays’s Topic: Favourite Heroines from (mostly YA) SFF books

1-2 Elisabeth from Sorcery of Thorns and Isobel from An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

3 Tarisai from Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

4 Inej from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

5 El (Galadriel) Higgins from A Deadly Education/The Last Graduate/The Golden Enclaves by Naomi Novik

6 Xingyin from Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan

7 Kady from Illuminae Files by Amy auffman and Jay Kristoff

8 Jude from The Folk of The Air Trilogy

9 Cee and Kasey from The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He

10 Alosa from The Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller- Tricia’s characters tend to be so full of vitality that it’s impossible not to be attracted to them.

….and many, many others…

Have you read any of these books? If yes, did you like or hate them? Would you recommend them?

Upcoming Top Ten Tuesday Topics:

February 28: Genre Freebie (Pick a genre and build a list around it. It could a list of favorites, a to-read list, recommendations for people interested in reading books in that genre, “if you like this, try this”, etc.)
March 7: Bookish People I’d Like To Meet (These can be authors, book characters, book bloggers/influencers, cover designers, cover models, etc.)
March 14: Books on My Spring 2023 To-Read List
March 21: TTT Rewind (Pick a previous topic that you missed or would like to re-do/update.)
March 28: Books for People Who Liked Author X

Thank you for stopping by and reading the post! Have a wonderful Tuesday!

    1. Holly Black is one of my favourite authors, so I just needed to include one of her characters…I quite like Charlie from The Book of Night, although she isn’t someone you’d call ‘a heroine’ yet. Can’t wait to read the next book in the series to see how her character is going to develop.
