Who's YOUR Favorite Literary Heroine?
I recently came across an interesting Goodreads discussion about our favorite heroines and literature and why we love 'em so much. The answers ranged from Hermione Granger to Jane Eyre, and the reasons included independence, bravery, and intelligence displayed by these ladies.
I know I like heroines who are willing to stand up for themselves and make tough decisions--even when it hurts. I like reading about a female protagonist who may not be perfect, but is relatable and just trying her hardest to do what's right. Oh yes, and a little bit of humor and sharp wit are also welcome.
If you had to name your favorite literary heroine(s), who would make the cut, and why?
