13 Favorite Fictional Heroines: TT #15

This week I'm featuring 13 of my favorite female characters from novels, in no particular order, and just coz I love them:



1. Scarlett O'Hara from Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell

Strong, beautiful, selfish brat who knows what she wants and is willing to do anything to get it too. She's not the most lovable person, but she's definitely one of the most human, and someone I can definitely relate to.
2. Aurianne from The Light Bearer by Donna Gillespie

She is one of my favorite female characters of all time. She's intelligent, and she has many amazing talents. She's someone I really respect, even though she's only a fictional character. She's someone I've always hoped I'd grow up to be, amazing talents and all. Except that I really hope I don't need to be a warrior and fight anyone...
3. Arya from A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin

She's only one of the main characters, but she's also one of the most interesting. She's only a child, but a spunky and intelligent one, and I always enjoy reading the parts told in her point of view.
4. Judy Abbott from Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster

She writes wonderful letters, and she's got a great sense of humor. How can you not love someone with a great sense of humor? She's real and sincere, and she's the kind of person you fall in love with just by reading her words on paper.
5. Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

Hot-tempered, sensitive, dramatic, but so lovable, kind-hearted, and someone you'd just love to be friends with. She gets into all sorts of trouble and then always find ways to make things right again. She's a staunch and loyal friend who'll be there for you no matter what.
6. Ayla from Earth's Children series by Jean M. Auel

A beautiful woman who's gone through so much; losing her parents and abused by one of the men in the clan who found her, she's strong nevertheless, and ingenious. She's also talented in the mystery arts, and she gains the respect of everyone she meets just by being who she is.
7. Sati from Sati by Christopher Pike

A mysterious woman who comes out of nowhere, she's a one of a kind. She's simple and easygoing, and very, very wise, and she claims to be a god. Perhaps she really is, she's definitely someone who'd make a wonderful god, or goddess, if you prefer.
8. Kiki Strike from Kiki Strike by Kirsten Miller

Another mysterious girl who comes out of nowhere and disappears as she wills. She's the best person to go on adventures with, because she always knows what to do and she's always prepared. She's someone I'd love to know more about.
9. Mary from The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

She's contrary, and not very nice to begin with, but you start to love her as she grows into a wonderful little lady who brightens up everybody's day.
10. Momo from Momo by Michael Ende

Momo is a quiet little girl, but a very special one. She solves your problems just by listening to them, and she's astute enough to know that something is wrong, when nobody else realize that anything is amiss. Momo reminds us that the little things are the most important, and the most valuable things are free.
11. Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

She's proud, but not too proud that she couldn't admit that she was wrong, a quality that we all should have. She's headstrong and stubborn, but just as vulnerable and susceptible to falling in love as the rest of us.
12. Alosha from Alosha by Christopher Pike

She's just a girl, but she's no ordinary girl. There's something magical about her, and so extraordinary that she's the only one who can save the world. She's what every adventurous girl wishes she could be.

13. Jo March from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott


How can I describe Jo March? She's a strong, beautiful, ambitious girl who's loyal and loving and would do anything for her family and loved ones. She stays true to her beliefs, and she goes for her dreams, even though it's not always easy to do so.
