Top Ten Tuesday #26

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

This week is Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books.

Just let me fangirl a while and then I'll write the list. Promise.

OK... So, in no particular order, meet the heroines that I read again and again. Because I've re-read every one of the books/series so many times since I discovered them I can quote whole passages. AWESOME.


  • Alexia Tarabotti (Parasol Protectorate by Gail Carriger)
  • Celaena Sardothien (Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas)
  • Cassandra Mortmain (I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith)
  • Rayne (Possessing Rayne by Kate Cann)
  • Sophronia Temminnick (Finishing School by Gail Carriger)
  • Lucy Carlyle (Lockwood and Co. by Jonathan Stroud)
  • Caitlin McCann (Lucas by Kevin Brooks)
  • Meg Lytton (Tudor Witch by Victoria Lamb)
  • Hawise (Shadows and Strongholds by Elizabeth Chadwick)
  • Lacey Flint (Lacey Flint by Sharon Bolton)

What about you?

    1. Ooh you have to! It's awesome. You have to stick with it though, I found it a little hard going at first. But it's so worth it.

  5. Elizabeth Chadwick you read and the one I read are different people, writing w a similar flair. I've got to try that Sarah Maas series everyone loves so much.

    1. I don't think I can stop fangirling and gushing at the awesomeness that is Sarah J Maas!
      I know there's another Elizabeth Chadwick, but I've never been able to track down any of her books. 20 years on they'll be even harder to find.

  36. I need to read most of these books but I'm sure I'd agree with you if I had read them. Throne of Glass is on my 'Must Read this Year' list. :)

  39. Ooh, Lockwood and Co.! I love Jonathon Stroud's writing. His descriptions. I don't believe I've read many of the others, apart from I Capture the Castle, though I'm dying to read Throne of Glass. If only my library had it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love the Parasol Protectorate books! Alexia is a great heroine. I can't wait to get my hands on the first Prudence book!

  41. I have to admit that other than I Capture the Castle, I haven't read any of these! Uh oh, I sense some additions to my reading list..... :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Great list. I really like the look of the Gail Carriger books and keep thinking I should read them. Same for Throne of Glass. Everyone seems to love those books so I keep thinking I'm missing out :D
