Tell me something Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Cambria Hebert, in which she asks us something, and we post our answer. And the question of the week is:
Who is your favorite heroine in a book? (Okay you can name more than one)
A very interesting question, one I love to answer everytime I'm asked that. It's very simple, and yet, complicated as hell. I have so many favorite heroines that I can't possibly name them all. So, let's get started.
Rose Hathaway, from Vampire Academy (by Richelle Mead)
I bet a lot of people thought about her as soon as they read the question. Rose is the kind of girl who's strong, sarcastic, sweet and loyal. She protects who she loves with everything she's got, but when things go downhill... well, let's just say she also does whatever is necessary.
I respected her from the moment she ran away from the Academy with Lissa. What really made me love her, however, was the situation she had to go through in Blood Promise and Spirit Bound. Only a true heroine can survive something like that without completely breaking.
Cat Crawfield, from Night Huntress (by Jeaniene Frost)
Another heroine I'm quite fond of is Cat. I recently mentioned that I'd like to travel to this book's world, just to know Cat and be her friend. Imagine someone badass and capable of doing a lot of damage, but still human enough to apreciate life (even though she's half dead o.O). That's Cat. I love how tough she was with Bones when they first met, how she never gives up. Her willingness to put herself in the path of danger to save someone innocent is remarkable. The series is already on book six, and Cat still manages to surprise me a lot of times, which is amazing.
Gin Blanco, from Elemental Assassin (by Jennifer Estep)
An assassin who kills mercilessly and protects fiercely. That's Gin Blanco. She's someone I admire immensely with every challenge that's thrown at her way. Estep is the kind of writer who is not afraid to hurt her characters, if it will make them stronger. And oh, Gin is so strong. She has to go through some serious situations. Being burned to the bones, bitten, tortured, electrocuted... those are just samples. And each time, she rises again and kicks ass. That's why I love her. Besides that, Gin is so human. She loves her family, and would do anything to help them. It's heart-warming.
So, these are my favorite heroines. Aside from those, there's also Merit, from the Chicagoland Vampire series, which I absolutely love. I don't want this answer to be so huge, so I just talked about those three ;D
What about you, what are your favorite heroines?
