I started #FridayFavorites back when I started up the blog again and wanted to make sure I kept at least one regular post a week. This was, of course, before I knew there were others out there. But I decided to keep it, especially since I have the whole year planned out. If anyone wants to join me, the list for future topics can be found here.
NOTE: NEXT WEEK this will be #FridayFives instead of #FridayFavorites.
Today’s topic is about some of my favorite heroines from books. Some of them are heroines in the traditional sense (actually fighting wars) and some are heroines in a sense of fighting against the patriarchy.
Jo March – I just feel such a connection to Jo, as a writer and a character in general. And I absolutely love the new Little Women movie
Elizabeth Bennet – I mean I had to include my original favorite. I really don’t remember a time that I didn’t love Elizabeth Bennet.
Hermione Granger – I love how Hermione showed that girls can be smart and read books, but also fight and be a warrior.
Sansa Stark – I know most people are all for Arya, but I love Sansa so much more. She’s so subtle in how she manipulates the Lannisters. It’s also so amazing how throughout the show she learns from everyone Cersei, Joffrey, Little Finger but tries to be better than them. To the Queen of the North, long may she reign.
Zélie – gah, I couldn’t put down Children of Blood and Bone (I desperately need to read the second one) and I absolutely love Zelie and her courage and her strength of character.
Happy Reading Darlings!
