Alanna from Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce. She pretends to be her brother and goes off to get trained as a page. She eventually makes it to a knight!
GIRLS WHO FIGHT WITH THEIR MIND
Denna from Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst. She is brilliant and is able to use her brain to her advantage.
GIRLS WHO FIGHT WITH THEIR HEART
Elisa from The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson. I think she is a very atypical heroine, but has so much compassion and heart.
GIRLS WHO ARE TRAINED FIGHTERS
Rose Hathaway from the Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead. Rose will always be one of my favorite female heroines and she has some awesome fighting moves.
STRONG GIRLS OF COLOR
Rue from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. She gave her life for Katniss and became a symbol.
GIRLS WHO FIGHT TO SURVIVE
Rose from Garden of Thorns by Amber Mitchell. Rose does everything she could in order to survive because others gave their life so she could.
GIRLS WHO ARE WEAPONS MASTERS
Katniss from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I mean the way she uses that bow would make me run.
GIRLS WHO DON’T CONFORM TO GENDER ROLES
This one is a little hard. I do not think I have read enough books to have an answer for this.
GIRLS WITH KICK-BUTT MAGICAL POWERS
Vin from Misborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. The whole magic system in this trilogy is so awesome and Vin does some great things with her powers.
STRONG GIRLS IN CONTEMPORARY NOVELS
Reagan from Open Road Summer by Emery Lord. I love her! She stands up for herself and takes care of herself even though she has been through some stuff.
SERIOUSLY FIERCE GIRLS
Kate Harker from This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. Kate is such a kick ass female. She is also super sassy which I love.
Who are some of your favorite strong females?
