I’m so excited to be a part of this fun tour! I just finished First & Then and loved it (review coming in the next few weeks). Today Emma Mills is going to share 5 of her favorite female characters with you and then I’m going to share mine (if I can possibly narrow it down). There’s also a giveaway at the bottom of the post!
Emma’s Favorite Female Characters:
– Elizabeth Bennett, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Elizabeth is quick-witted, headstrong, loyal— my fave Austen heroine (Emma is a close second, and not just because I too am an Emma!).
– Inej, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Inej, aka “the Wraith”—what a woman. Torn from her family, thrust into a new world, Inej is so brave, smart, and determined. A recent fave, but a fave nonetheless!
– Phryne Fisher, Phyrne Fisher Mysteries by Kerry Greenwood
Phryne just tickles me. The brilliance of Sherlock Holmes, with grit and wit and sex appeal. Gotta love her!
– Mary Russell, The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie Russell
Mary’s a literal genius, a feminist, and has a delightful sense of humor. Her take on the world is amazing.
– Hermione Granger, Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
If I had to pick my very favorite female character of all, it would probably have to be Hermione. I idolized her as a kid—I wanted to be Hermione; she is brilliant and intuitive and selfless.
My Favorite Female Characters:
-Jessica Darling from the Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty
Jessica is such a fun character. It’s impossible to read read those books and not love her.
-Lola from from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Lola makes her own rules when it comes to fashion and life!
-Elisa from The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
Elisa is one of the most powerful girls I’ve ever read about. I have so much love for her.
-Briony from Chime by Franny Billingsley
Briony is such a unique character. She skyrocketed to my favorites list pretty quickly.
-Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Hermione is pretty much the best female character ever.
