Hello, fellow book junkies! Out of all the books I read in 2016, there were so many great female characters. Narrowing down the list to my top seven was hard, but here goes.
New Favorite Female Characters
FOR THE ULTIMATE IN BAD ASSERY:
Lila Bard – Shades of Magic Lada Dragwyla-And I Darken
If Lila and Lada were to engage in hand-to-hand combat, it’s hard to say who the victor would be. Lada is big and strong, Lila is sly, both are as fierce as they come.
BECAUSE THEY’RE TRULY HEROIC:
Queenie-Code Name Verity Miss Justineau-The Girl with All the Gifts
Omoni Oboli would make a great Ms. Justineau.
Queenie and Miss Justineau are the kind of down-to-earth, genuine heroines that haunted my thoughts long after I finished reading their stories.
GIRLS I’D LOVE TO HANG WITH (Bonus: They even do magic.):
Agnieszka-Uprooted Celia Bowen-The Night Circus
Not only are they both very powerful magicians, Angnieszka and Celia are true blue gals I’d love to have as friends.
Samantha Sweeting-The Undomestic Goddess
Yep, just thinking of this book brings a smile to my face. High-powered attorney Samantha Sweeting somehow winds up as a domestic servant, and her fish-out-of-water story is hilarious.
