Favorite Female Characters

Wow, it’s been fifteen days! And I was doing so well on posting regularly too! I’ve been super busy the past two weeks. I haven’t visited any blogs either. Sorry guys!

In honor of (the end of) Women’s History Month, I’ve decided to honor my favorite fictional females.

Hermione Granger

Hermione Jean Granger from Harry Potter, the brain of the Golden Trio. Any list I make of female characters would be incomplete without her. She’s smart and headstrong and she’s never afraid to call people out.


Luna Lovegood

Luna Lovegood, also from Harry Potter, so different but also just as admirable as Hermione. Luna is fearless. She has unrelenting beliefs and never compromises herself for what other people think of her.


Inej Ghafa

Inej Ghafa from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Inej stole my heart in the first two chapters of the book. She is brave, compassionate and strong willed. And she is always hopeful no matter what the circumstance.

Helene Aquilla

Helene Aquilla from Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. Helene is pretty much as fierce as they get. She stays strong, solves her own problems and always looks ahead. She’s ruthless but has a soft side for those she loves.

Anne Shirley

Anne with and “e” Shirley from Anne of Green Gables. If I had to pick a favorite classical female character, it would be my favorite red haired heroine. I love Anne’s optimism and positivity. And though her temper may get the best of her sometimes, she has a huge heart and the intelligence to go along with it.


Which of these characters are on your favorites list? Who would you add?

  1. This is a great idea for a Women’s History Month post! Plus, I have both Six of Crows and Anne of Green Gables on my TBR for April. I can’t wait to get to know those characters.

    Additions, hm. Delilah Bard from the Shades of Magic series, as I just finished it. Cress from The Lunar Chronicles. Cath from Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl. And Oree from NK Jeminin’s The Broken Kingdoms. I’m sure there are more, though!

    1. Thank you Jackie! Six of Crows is mind blowing awesome! I hope you love it as much as I do! Anne of Green Gables is a really sweet book.

      I really need to read the Shades of Magic books! I literally hear about it everywhere now. Cress is great! And so is Cath! Hmm, I’ve never heard of Broken Kingdoms, that sounds interesting.
