Här ger man sin Topp 10 i veckans valda ämne som denna vecka är:
Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books

10. Ciere Giba (Illusive av Emily Lloyd-Jones)
 “She’s a lunatic,” says Conrad.
“Absolutely insane,” says Guntram.
“Either completely fearless or utterly stupid,” says Conrad.
“She’s going to fit right in,” says Guntram.” 

9. Sydney Sage (Bloodlines av Richelle Mead)
 “Out of old habit, I put my hand on my collarbone, touching a cross that was no longer there.
Don't let them change me, I prayed silently. Let me keep my mind. Let me endure whatever 
there is to come.”

8. Ellie Linton (Tomorrow serien av John Marsden)
“Well, I’ve learnt this much: it doesn’t matter
what it costs, it’s worth paying the price. You can’t live cheap
and you can’t live for nothing. Pay the price and be proud you’ve
paid it, that’s what I reckon.” 

7. Gwen Frost (Mythos Academy av Jennifer Estep)
“I did not glow with the thrill of battle. Cringe, yes. Glow, no.”  

6. Tris Prior (Divergent av Veronica Roth)
Obs, spoilers från Allegiant -->
“I suppose a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last.”  

5. Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy av Richelle Mead)
 “Even I make mistakes." I put on my brash, overconfident face. "I know it's hard to believe—kind of surprises me myself—but I guess it has to happen. It's probably some kind of karmic way to balance out the universe. Otherwise, it wouldn't be fair to have one person so full of awesomeness.”

4. Annabeth Chase (Percy Jackson and the Olympians & 
The Heroes of Olympus av Rick Riordan)
“Monkey bar," Annabeth said. "I'm great at these." She leaped onto to the first rung and start swinging her way across. She was scared of tiny spiders, but not of plummeting to her death from a set of monkey bars. Go figure.”  

3. Hermione Granger (Harry Potter av J.K. Rowling)
"I hope you're pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed - or worse, expelled." 

2. Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games av Suzanne Collins)
“Katniss Everdeen, the girl who was on fire, you have provided a spark that, left unattended, may grow to an inferno that destroys Panem," he says."

1. Celaena Sardothien (Throne of Glass av Sarah J. Maas)
“I don't think you realize who you're dealing with."
The man clicked his tongue, "If you were that good, you would be more than just Captain of the Guard."
Chaol let out a low, breathy laugh. "I wasn't talking about me."
"She's just one girl."
Though his guts were twisting at the thought of her in this place, with these people, though he was considering every possible way to get himself and Celaena out of here alive, he gave the man a grin. "Then you're really in for a big surprise.”

  1. I really need to read Illusive, from everything I've seen from you it's totally my kind of book! Also, I love the you included Annabeth, and, of course, Hermione. =)

    1. Oh, yes. You must, must read Illusive. It's so damn good. And yes, how can you make a list like this and not include Annabeth and Hermione? Two of my all time favorites. ;)

  2. Jag ÄLSKAR det sista citatet från Throne of Glass! Åh tänk om man hinner läsa om hela serien innan Queen of Shadows släpps, det hade varit så kul!

    1. Åh, jag älskar också det. Och jag tänker nog läsa om serien innan QoS, så hoppas att du också får tid att göra det. Vi kanske skulle göra det tillsammans? :)

    2. åh det hade ju varit kul, dock får du nog vänta in mig lite då och då eftersom jag inte läser riktigt lika snabbt :)

    3. Ah, självklart. ;) Eller så kan vi kanske börja under sommaren och läsa en bok/månad eller något. :)

  3. Jag känner inte igen många av karaktärerna du nämner, men jag hade med Hermione, Tris och Katniss på min egen lista :) Jag blir lite nyfiken på Throne of Glass.

    1. Throne of Glass är superb, tycker helt klart att du ska kolla in den serien. :)

  4. This is a really cool list - and quite similar to mine! :)
    I would have included Annabeth if I was allowed more than 10 picks, she's a wonderful friend and I love how smart she is.
    I liked Sydney, but her constant obsession with her weight/looks put me off somewhat, but again, she's wicked smart and I respected that.

    1. Haha, that's great. I do love Annabeth, and I agree with you about Sydney. But I felt that her obsession disappeared in the later books, so I'm pretty okay with her now. :)

  5. så gøy topp 10 tirsdag! Elsker de 5 siste og sydney. Rose og Celaena er deffinitivt mine favoritter!

    1. Ah, det finns många bra kvinnliga karaktärer tycker jag, men Celaena kommer nog alltid att vara min absoluta favorit. :)

  6. så gøy topp 10 tirsdag! Elsker de 5 siste og sydney. Rose og Celaena er deffinitivt mine favoritter!

  7. Katniss and Rose are on my list too. Great list, thanks for sharing :)

  8. Svar
    1. Haha, why, thank you! And thanks for stopping by. :)

  9. Hermione och Katniss hamnade på min lista också. Och Tris kunde nog ha hamnat där...

    1. Jag tror att Hermione och Katniss finns på mångas listor. Båda är ju fantastiska förebilder. :)

  10. Åh vad fint med förstärkande citat till alla hjältinnor! Många fina karaktärerpå din lista!
