  4. Some of my favorite heroines are featured on here! I would also add Alanna from the Lioness Quartest series by Tamora Pierce on here. Great list.

  5. We have one in common :)
    I really want to read Graceling and Poison Study, but I haven't been able to find the books anywhere in SA. One day though.

  6. Oh, Faythe is a great choice! I can't believe I forgot about her!

  9. I thought about adding Hermione,but decided to go with less well known ones. Sort of. :) I need to get caught up with the Graceling books!

  10. I almost put Annabeth on my list, too. I really like Luna also, she is so spacey, but quite smart. Great list and thanks for stopping by :-)

  11. I didn't even think of Annabeth, and I love that you included all those HP women. Great list!

  12. I completely forgot Annabeth as well. And I can't believe I didn't add Luna, McGonagall and Mrs Weasley to my Harry Potter heroines ♥ So many amazing women in the HP series! Graceling, Poison Study and Vampire Academy are all pretty high up on my reading list...I own a copy of Graceling and everything!

    Great list! And thanks for stopping by mine

  13. I love Katsa, Annabeth, Katniss, and Hermione (and all the other HP gals). I almost put Katniss and Hermione on my list, but I figured HP frequents my TTTs so much already! haha

    Awesome list! (:

  14. Nice list! Check out mine, and maybe you'll be able to add your last three. :)
