Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fabulous gals cover at The Broke & The Bookish. This week's topic is -

Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books & TV

I have a vague recollection of doing this topic before but cannot for the life of me remember how long ago it was. Anyway, here's a new list of some of my favorite heroines from books and, thanks to characters from Game of Thrones, television too!

Lila - A Darker Shade of Magic

Mori - Jo Walton

Elizabeth Bennett - Pride & Prejudice

Lyra - His Dark Materials

Sansa Stark - A Song of Ice & Fire

Brienne of Tarth - ASoIaF

Daenerys Targaryen - ASoIaF

Lady Trent - A Natural History of Dragons

Karou - Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Anne Shirley - Anne of Green Gables


  1. GREAT list. I haven't yet read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, which I know I will love. But from what I have heard I will love Karou and will be one of my many fave heroines. my ttt<3

  2. Aww! Anne?! What a great character to choose! I'm only familiar with Anne but a few of these look pretty kick butt so I can only imagine their heroines are great too!

    1. I almost forgot about Anne and she's probably in my top 5!

      Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. I really need to watch Game of Thrones...I must be the only person on the planet who hasn't seen a single episode yet!!!

    1. Yes, you need to watch Game of Thrones! The only person I know who hasn't watched a single episode is my dad and that's because he doesn't watch television!

      The Game of Thrones characters would have been on my list purely for the books but it's been great seeing them come to life so had to mention the tv show too.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Karou is on my list. I just ordered A Darker Shade of Magic and I can't WAIT to read it! Great list!

  5. Sansa is not someone who is usually chosen, so this intrigues me. I see her character as a bit naïve, but for the mindset she has she does fair pretty well. I like Daenerys a lot as well, and I am currently reading Pride and Prejudice at the moment!

    1. In my opinion there's a lot more to Sansa than meets the eye and anyone who can survive Joffrey has to be a heroine!
