Top 10 Favourite Heroines from Books

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists over there at The Broke and the Bookish. I'd love to share my lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

This week's topic is my top ten heroines from books. I think it's going to be difficult to choose only 10 because I have read about so many inspiring and fantastic women! But I am going to try, here we go: 

1) Hermione Granger - Harry Potter Series. I could not start this list without my favourite heroine of all time. Let's face it, without her, Harry would have died on the first book. She has taught the millions of readers the importance of friendship, honesty and effort. 

2) Angela Clark - I Heart Series. This is on of my favourite series ever and they wouldn't be so great without our Angie. It's difficult not to love this strong, determined British who left it all to start her dream life in New York. 

3) Scarlett O'Brien - Actually Series. Also a favourite series, I have always related to Scarlett. A movie lover who earns to live her own movie and she certainly does.
4) Mathilda. A firm favourite since I was a child. This bright girl let me get lost in her world during hours. 

5) Lou Clark - Me Before You. When I first read this book last year, it instantly became one of my favourites. Lou certainly is a character I will never forget. I am now very looking forward to the film adaptation. 

6) Sally - The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me. This was my favourite book of 2014. Sally was a joy to read about, the girl who sang in a wardrobe, and it was amazing to see her blossom during the story. 

7)  Juliet Ashton - The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. This book has stayed with me over the years. A beautiful tale about a girl who protected the library books during war and ended up in Guernsey thanks to letters.

8) Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) - Shopaholic Series. During the years, Becky has become one of my best friends. She has made me laugh non-stop for hours. 

9) Hazel - The Fault in Our Stars. She and Augustus taught us all why life is worth living. A true heroine for me.

10) Aibileen - The Help. I was about to include Skeeter as the heroine, but then, I thought Aibileen is the real heroine of this story that will leave no one indifferent. 

I could actually go on for a while here because there are so many women in literature that deserve to be acknowledged as heroines. But these are my top ones. Who is your favourite heroine?
