Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Heroines


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Favorite Heroines. This felt like a familiar topic to me, but it looks like it’s been many years since I put together a similar list, and by now I have plenty of new ones to highlight!

Here are ten of my favorites (hint: the first one will not be a surprise!):

  1. Claire Fraser – Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
  2. Mercy Thompson – Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs
  3. October Daye – October Daye series by Seanan McGuire
  4. Erin, Mac, Tiffany and KJ – Paper Girls graphic novels by Brian K. Vaughan
  5. Zinnia Gray – A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow
  6. Mika Moon – The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches by Sangu Mandanna
  7. Marra – Nettle & Bone by T. Kingfisher
  8. Beatrice Clayborn – The Midnight Bargain by C. L. Polk
  9. Jane Ellsworth – Glamourist Histories series by Mary Robinette Kowal
  10. Sunny Nwazue – The Nsibidi Scripts series by Nnedi Okorafor

  1. A greta list. I agree with you on Claire Fraser. I would include on my list Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables, Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice and Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series.
