This week’s Booking Through Thursday question is:
Who is your favorite female lead character? And why? (And yes, of course, you can name more than one . . . I always have trouble narrowing down these things to one name, why should I force you to?)
Hmm…well, thank goodness we’re not limited to one. 🙂
My first choice, as of three months ago, would have been Anita Blake in Laurell K. Hamilton’s series. She is sassy, confident, and up until book five, stuck to her morals. But she’s starting to become rather trashy and amoral, and I hear it only gets worse. So scratch her.
I know Lyra from His Dark Materials is only 13, but she’s pretty awesome. She’s not over-the-top for her age, and I just like her. She’s strong headed but is really just trying to do the right thing. I love her! And I love Serafina Pikkala for being such a good witch, but maybe I just like saying her name. It’s rather lyrical.
I don’t know how many people felt about Rachel from Moloka’i, but I thought she was very real. She wasn’t perfect, but she’s someone I would definitely look to as a role model (if she were real, of course). She did her best. At the end of my life, I hope I can say the same.
I remember loving Jane Eyre, but alas, it’s been so long since I’ve read that book that I really don’t remember much about it anymore.
OH! How could I forget Hermione. I loved that she was always reading and learning. And she could do magic. And I think she’s the cutest thing in the movie.
How about you? Who’s your favorite female lead character? If you answered this on your own blog, leave a link here and I promise I’ll come read it and most likely leave a comment too. 😀
(I’m going to out myself and say that this is a perfect example of how I’m not very wordy…I’m very concise. I don’t expand a whole lot and I hope you can read between the lines and really *get* what I’m trying to say.)
