Top 5 Female Characters

Hello there. It's Wednesday and I am here to do a Top 5 Wednesday post (join the T5W group here). This week's topic is Top 5 Female Characters and here are my picks.

5. Arya Stark - A Song of Ice and Fire
I love Arya, in the TV series as well as in the books. She's such a strong character and managing even though everything about her life has been hard. I can't wait to see what's going to happen in the future with her and I'm hoping we get to see some reunion of the (remaining) Stark family. I'm sure there are many great Arya moments waiting for us.

4. Isabelle Lightwood - The Mortal Instruments
I'm sure Izzy will be on many people's list. She's such a great character who develops wonderfully throughout the series. I loved to see her go from arrogant to loving and getting to know her better. She's also good for hilarious comments, which make any book better. 

3. Hermione Granger - Harry Potter
Of course, Hermione had to be included in this list. I love Hermione. I don't know what else to say.

2. Celaena Sardothien - Throne of Glass
This was a really tough choice to make but I finally decided to only reward Celaena second place. As you may have already noticed, I love a good kick-ass heroine and Celaena is definitely that - and more. She's girly and deadly and I adore that combination.

1. Katniss Everdeen - The Hunger Games
Now, Katniss is number one not only because she's one of my top 2 favorite female characters but because she's also the main character in my favorite series. I know that there are people that don't love the Hunger Games that much and a lot of people have problems with Mockingjay and how 'weak' Katniss became in the course of the series - I'm not one of them. I adore Katniss, I think she is incredibly strong and how she reacted to the horror she had to go through only seems natural to me. The important part is that she always put herself back together at some point and stayed as strong as she could be throughout the series. And that she somewhat cracked at the end, I totally understand. She will probably always be my top favorite character and even pure amazingness like Celaena Sardothien can't replace her.

So, that's it, here are my favorite female characters. Let me know if you agree with my choices or who you'd put at the top. Thank you for reading!


  1. OH I LOVE YOUR CHOICES! And I wholeheartedly agree with Hermione. People tend to forget for because it's been so long but SHE WAS KICKASS!!
