Female Characters That Inspire Me
Women’s History Month Reading Challenge
Women’s History Month Reading Challenge is hosted by Margaret @ Weird Zeal. I am not participating in the actual reading challenge, but Margaret has also come up with a prompt for each Monday in March, and I will be doing those!
Today’s prompt is “Female Characters That Inspire You”
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
This should surprise absolutely no one. I love Elizabeth Bennet ❤ She is witty and feisty and smart, but still feminine. She is a romantic and won’t accept marriage without love, in a time where marriages were often matches of convince.
Harry Potter by J.K Rowling
Again, this probably isn’t surprising. Hermione is incredibly smart and loyal and I would love to have her as a friend!
Heroine Complex by Sarah Kuhn
Throughout the book you get to watch as Evie comes to accept who she is and even fight for herself. She is used to being in the shadow and she likes it that way, but as she discovers who she is, she also discovers she is stronger than she thought. Evie is incredibly down to earth and realistic!
Uprooted by Naomi Novik
Agnieszka is amazing. Stolen unexpectedly from the world she knows she thrives nonetheless. She struggles and makes mistakes, but she learns and grows and becomes super strong and badass.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
I love Lila’s outlook on life. She is adventures and funny and daring, and she never gives up!
Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers
Annith is caring and compassionate and is willing to do everything for her friends. But she is also willing to fight for what she wants. She will not accept the fate chosen for her, instead she chooses her own.
Sky In The Deep by Adrienne Young
Eelyn is a badass fighter and a super amazing person. She fights for what she believes, but is also willing to listen and learn. While she is stubborn, she will also admit when she is wrong and fight for what is right.
Completely randomly I noticed that all 7 of the characters I chose were written by female authors! (I swear I didn’t include or exclude any characters to make this happen! I made my list and it so happened that all the authors were female) I don’t think this is coincidence. Who better to write an inspiring female character than a female author?
