Welcome to my weekly meme Tell Me Something Tuesday where I ask you something and you tell me the answer!! It’s as simple as that and I thought it would be a great way for all of us bloggers to get to know one another! So this is how it works: I post a question here on my blog and then i give my answer. I invite all the bloggers to take the question and post it on their blog with their answer and we can hop around and see what everyone says! If you are a blogger don’t forget to leave your link at the bottom of this post! If you aren’t a blogger – that’s okay too!! Leave your answer in the comments section!
Tell Me Something:
Who is your favorite heroine in a book? (Okay you can name more than one)
There are a ton of strong female characters in the many books that I have read. Hold onto your panties I am about to name the ALL. Okay, I won’t. ha ha ha. But I will list a few that first came to mind when I posted this question.
#1 Katniss from the Hunger Games
Yes, there is a lot of buzz going around right now about this book and upcoming movie but maybe that is because I am right and Katniss is a super strong female heroine. LOL. I recently read this series and really, Katniss is full of strength and courage. This girl is dealt bad thing after another. The books made me exhausted (but not in a bad way) because of everything she went through. And yet somehow in the end she always seemed to make it through. I think one of the things that made her so remarkable is that she really wasn’t supposed to be remarkable. lol. I mean, she is a teenage girl thrust into a situation beyond her control and she wasn’t confident she would come out of it. On the contrary she thought she wouldn’t but she tried anyway. To me, that is strength.
#2 Calla from the Nightshade Series
I think Calla is strong because throughout this series her beliefs and everything she is raised to believe and taught from birth is challenged. She is the Alpha of her pack and that makes her responsible for others and she takes that very seriously, she welcomes it even. I liked her because she followed her heart and her gut ans she didn’t apologize for it.
#3 Tara from the Dirty Blood Series
Tara is a strong character because she starts the series as a regular teenage girl and then Bah- Bam is thrust into a paranormal world that she has ties to she never even realized. She takes this all with strength and endurance all while holding her own in a fight. This girl isn’t afraid to take up for herself (at one point she carries a broken plunger handle in her back pocket as a makeshift weapon). I mean really, ain’t no one mess with her. LOL. But she takes a couple licks too, but that’s okay because she always gets back up again.
#4 Skye from A Beautiful Dark
I just read this book and I really loved it. Skye is a likable teenager that I enjoyed reading about so much. This girl is normal as she can be until paranormal events and the arrival of two hot new guys change everything. She handled things like I would expect any teenage girl too, by wanting to cry sometimes and scream others. But I thought it was real and I really liked her.
So that’s my list for this week! I am sure that once I read all of your answers I will be smacking myself in the head for not naming a few icons that I missed. I can’t wait to see who some of your favorite heroine’s in a book are!!
Before we go the question for next week’s TMST is:
Who is your favorite sidekick in a book? (You know the BFF of the main character)
