Top Ten Favorite Heroines from Literature

For Broke and Bookish's Top Ten Tuesday meme, this week's theme is my Top Ten Favorite Heroiens from literature. Choosing favorites is always hard but here goes in no particular order. :)
  1. Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  2. Fanny Price from Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
  3. Anne Elliot from Persuasion by Jane Austen
  4. Elinor Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
  5. Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
  6. Amy Dorrit from Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  7. Lady Jane Grey from Coronation of Glory by Deborah Meroff- Kind of cheating because she is a real historical figure that I admire but there's a book about her so there! 
  8. Molly Gipson from Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
  9. Precious Ramotswe from The No. One Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith
  10. Luna Lovegood from The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling- I know she isn't exactly the heroine of the story but I actually kind of prefer her to Hermione. 
You may notice a Jane Austen theme here and I do not apologize. ;) She is my favorite author. :)

  1. It was very hard to make this list and not just fill it with Jane Austen characters!

  6. I haven't read any of these. I've seen Hermione on a lot of people's lists, so it's refreshing to see a different character from the series.

  7. Great picks. Many of these are characters that I'm not too familiar with. Although Luna did make my list, I absolutely adore her. I also love Anne Shirley but totally forgot to include her in my list.

    1. Haha! :) I like Catherine, partially because I know I'm a lot like her but I'm not sure she epitomizes a heroine.... I know I don't! ;)
      Emma... I just don't like quite as much. I enjoy the book and movie she's just not as high up there for me as the others. :)
