Feature & Follow: Fave Heroines

Hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read
So, this sounds like a fun blog hop to me, so I'm joining in. The idea is to answer a weekly prompt provided by the hosts, Rachel from Parajunkie.com and Alison from Alisoncanread.com.



This week's prompt:

3 favorite heroines, books they're in, and why you love them.

My Answer:



Rose Hathaway- Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Rose makes the list because she's so like me. She's independent, she protects the people she cares about, and she has an irreconciliable disdain for authority... not to mention she's in love with an older guy. Yep, that's me in a nutshell, too bad I didn't inherit the "half-vampire" thing like her.

Eowyn- Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien
As an almost completely fogotten character in the LotR series, Eowyn is a real badass. I mean, how can you not love a woman that can single-handedly take out the Witch-king of Angmar? Besides, I'm a Xena-fan, so any badass girl with a sword is a favorite in my book.

Lucy Pevensie- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis
Lucy was probably one of the first heroines in my childhood. No one believes her that she's found a magical land inside a wardrobe, but she doesn't give up and winds up a Queen. She never lets her status (as the youngest) stop her from doing what she thinks is right and her real strength comes from the kindness she shows to everyone she meets.

  1. Definitely yes to Rose. Although I like Sydney even better than Rose. But they're both excellent heroines in different ways.

  2. Ohh great picks even though I haven't read any of the books you pick, but I do have the whole Vampire Academy on my kindle and the whole LOTR Books but I haven't read them yet. But hopefully I can get too them soon. Here is my #FF. New Follower on Google+
