This week’s topic is:

Your 3 favorite heroines, books they’re in, and why you love them.

I’ve been reading some other posts on this, and so many people have put Katniss Everdeen as one of their favorites.  While I truly love Katniss, I thought I’d go in a different direction.  So here are my three favorite heroines.

Carlotta Wren, The Body Movers series by Stephanie Bond

Carlotta has had to take on a lot of responsibility at a young age – her parents skipped town as wanted criminals, leaving her to raiser her teenage brother.  Carlotta is a tough chick, she never whines (and her brother is a big trouble making dickhead sometimes) and she gets herself out of some sticky situations.  Plus she’s funny as hell.

Stephanie Plum, the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich

Even though I stopped reading these books because I got sick of her not choosing between Ranger and Morelli, Stephanie is still a fantastic heroine.  She never takes herself too seriously, doesn’t freak out when her apartment gets blown up and does her job in the most awkward way, but she’s got a great family that is funny.

Fern Taylor from Making Faces by Amy Harmon

I know I’ve plugged this book so many times, but if you haven’t read it, you need to.  Fern is a waifish little redhead who is in love with the high school stud; but that stud goes off to war and comes back broken.  Fern is the one who fixes him.  She was so loving and loyal, and so real.  You’ll need the tissues for this book, but it’s so worth it.

Who are your favorite heroines?  Leave them in the comments below.

Happy reading and happy weekend.
