Standout fiction heroines
They’re sexy and sassy with an extra side of saucy. Here are ten of my favorite fiction gals and what makes them stand out from the rest.
Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas: She’s no damsel in distress. This self sufficient gal needs no man to survive. She can fight with the dirtiest of them and come out on top.
Katy Swartz from Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout: Katy’s got her own book blog! That alone makes her supercool.
Bella Swan from Twilight by Stephenie Meyer: Bella’s ordinary in the midst of the extraordinary. She’s clumsy and silly like the rest of us and that makes her relatable and human.
Hazel Grace Lancaster from the Fault in our stars by John Green: Hazel is a wise beyond her years. She’s got bravery in buckets and is not afraid to live.
Lyssa Peate from Double Life by S Usher Evans: Lyssa’s a woman in a man’s world and she’s doing a better job than them too. Juggling two identities is no piece of cake but this girls got the balls to do it.
America Singer from The One by Kiera Cass: Beauty with brains. America may have been chosen for her looks, but there’s so much more to her than meets the eye, and she’s not afraid to be herself and stand out.
Blue Sargent from The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater: She see’s things that would make other people run a mile but Blue takes it in her stride. From young, she’s been warned that she will cause the death of her true love, but that doesn’t stop her. She’s not afraid to love, even if it means loss somewhere down the line.
Shaylee Greene from Five by Caroline Greyling: Shaylee may be just seventeen but she’s no ordinary anxious teen. She’s got a mature head on her shoulders, she knows what she wants out of life and she’s chasing her dreams.
Beatrice Prior from Divergent by Veronica Roth: Nothing can stop Tris from standing up for what she believes in. She’ll give up her entire family and more, and won’t hesitate to go against her upbringing and social expectations to be true to herself.
Sloan Masterson from Lost in Starlight by Sherry Soule: This girls got what it takes to uncover even the toughest of stories, and look good while doing it. She’s proof enough that you don’t need to be a size eight to look good.
These are just some of my favorite gals. Who are yours?
