Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books (Not From Harry Potter)

It's time again for The Broke and The Bookish's Top Ten Tuesday.

This weeks theme was:  Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books (Not From Harry Potter)

Ok, I added the "not from Harry Potter" part, just becasue I feel like Hermione will top most lists this week.  Besides, couldn't I make my list solely based on women from that series easily anyway? 

So here we go:

1. Callie/Cal from Middlesex:

2. Scout from To Kill A Mockingbird:

3. Kathy from Never Let Me Go

4. Anne from Anne of Green Gables

5. Yvaine from Stardust: 

6. Anne Frank from The Diary of a Young Girl:

7. Mattie from True Grit

8. Zelda from Z

9. Veronica Mars from The Thousand Dollar Tan Line

10. Annabeth from The Percy Jackson books: 


  1. I love Annabeth so much! She's so wonderful! she's also on my list... I have wanted to read Anne of the Green Gables since my sister read it last year and had a blast with her! I can't to grab it!

    Here's my FF

    1. Annabeth is definitely spunky and fun! The same is true of Anne so I hope you enjoy reading her!

  2. I love the movie Stardust, great choice. I also love some Veronica Mars. Great list, thanks for sharing :)

    1. You should check out the books. Both are amazing in book form as well!

  3. I wish there was a good picture book biography of Anne Frank. Last week, when we talked about biographies I shared her story with students and children cried. Maybe her story is a little too sad for my primary students.

    Here's mine!

    1. I remember hearing about her for the first time in 6th grade and I was amazed the world could be so cruel. Its definitely a tough one.

    1. She is definitely at the top of the list since she is a real person, but yes she is definitely amazing.
