My prompts is Top 5 Favourite Female Characters.
Here I go!
in Harry Potter by JK Rowling
How is Hermione Granger not every girl’s favourite female character? Especially if you grew up with Harry Potter! Honestly, if it wasn’t for Hermione I wouldn’t be where I am today. Her character pushed me to be my better self just like she pushed Ron and Harry. I’m getting incredibly emotional thank you very much.
in Lord of The Rings by JRR Tolkien
Do you fucking mean the light of my life fire of my loins? I know she’s like a very minor character in the book and I might have fallen in love with her more from the movies but she is literally so fierce and strong. And I’m just so fascinated by Elves from the Tolkien’s legendarium.
in A Song of Ice And Fire by George RR Martin
LISTEN TO ME! WAIT! She is fucked up and she does very questionable things and she is crazy about power. But she is incredibly fascinating as a character. She is calculating and quick and smart smart smart. Her only issues is that she made herself the kind of chess player that wins regardless of what other pawns on the board are lost. It’s sad to see her constantly stripped, in various ways,
in Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
QUEEN! DESERVES MORE! She is so strong and loving, after Chaol Westfall (my husband, my son, my father) she is my favourite character in that universe. If you want to read about a kickass character that knows how to play the political game and bend society to her will, read the first two books of SJM. Caelena is… no comment.
Not book related (or, well, I’ve actually read the Charmed books, so) but Piper Halliwell from Charmed, the older sister, is one of my favourite female characters of all time. She was so strong and smart and her heart was so big. Fuck, I’m getting teary eyed just thinking about how much her character meant to me. She always put people before herself and sometimes I feel I do that as well. I always give my all to my sisters and they rarely reciprocate. So, I identify with her a lot!
Those are my Top 5 Favourite Female Characters! For the people I will nominate please use the listicle prompt “Top 5 Diverse Reads”!
