  1. I'm reading the Immortal rules now and I love Allison!! :) And Meghan!! Definitely - she completely rocks :) Awesome list!

  2. Linh Cinder is probably one of my favorites too. She was such an amazing character and I'm super excited for Scarlet. :)

  3. I love Elena and Savannah. Not only are they physically strong, they actually FEEL and live through pain, which makes them SO loveable imo. Same with Kate, though I guess she has some more growing up to do in the future installments. Great list!

    Happy Holidays,


  4. Ismae from Grave Mercy is one of my favorites. She is amazing, and I love her. Can't wait for more Sybella! June from Legend is another favorite of mine, and the book too! Clara and Kate are also 2 favorites, and they are both sweet kids. Love them. The only other one that I know is Helen from Dreamless, and she is tough. I like a tough Gal!

  5. no stereotypical Katniss? lol..
    I haven't read those books you listed.

  6. Great list! I love that you included adult books and I totally agree with Elena, Savannah and Merit. They all seriously kick butt!

  7. Great list! I need to read most of these, but for those I've already met, I totally agree :)

  8. I LOVE strong females. I haven't read most of these, yet, but totally agree about Clara from Hallowed and June from Legend! Great list! :)

    Thanks for stopping by my post!
