it’s tuesday and i am again participating in the “top ten tuesday”, which is a weekly challenge hosted by the broke and the bookish. this weeks topic is:
Ten Characters Who Would Make Great Leaders (Leaders of what? That’s your decision. Who could lead a country, an army, a book club, a classroom, etc. Or maybe characters that would be trendsetters?)
a few weeks ago i made a post about my top ten characters i had a crush on. that post was only based on male characters and i wanted to do another post for female characters. now i will do so, because i chose ten female characters, i would love to learn from, which basically means, that i love those characters because of their skills! so let’s get to it!
“top ten female characters i would love to learn from”
1.) starr from “the hate you give” by angie thomas
i looooved this book! i loved the impact it had on me and probably everybody else. starr is such a great character and so, so, so strong! i could not believe how strong this girl was, even though life wasn’t fair to her. i would love to learn from her to be that strong.
2.) rachel from “words in deep blue” by cath crowley
i knew i would love rachel right from the start. i felt protective of her. she was a vulnerable character and she went through so much. and even though she had to deal with so many things, i loved how was strong enough to overcome her grief and fear. i would love to learn from her how to leave some fears behind and just go for it, because sometimes i feel i could do more, i’m just to scared to do so.
3.) lucy from “the hating game” by sally thorne
lucy is such a strong and funny character. she knows what she wants, she always knows what to say and is so hilarious. i wish i knew what to say all the time and don’t blank out and i am very jealous that she knows what she wants and goes for it. sometimes it’s not that easy, but i would love to be more like lucy.
4.) kizzy from “the long way to a small angry planet” by becky chambers
i wasn’t the biggest fan of “the long way to a small angry planet” but one thing i loved very much, was kizzy! that girl is awesome. she has so many amazing mechanical skills, works until she fixes everything and she is also hilarious. i loved her so much!
5.) cath from “fangirl” by rainbow rowell
cath is one of my favorite characters of all time. i love her. i could relate to her so much and i loved reading about her. she is so cool. i am not a writer, but i guess, it would be fun to hear about fan fiction writing. i just need an excuse to spend time with cath 😀
6.) celaena from “throne of glass” by sarah j. maas
i just read the first two books in the series so far, but based on that i can say, that i really love how badass celaena is. that girl! i would want to learn from her to be so badass, because come on, don’t we all want to be a little bit badass sometimes!? 😀
7.) mia from “nevernight” by jay kristoff
hmm, i am thinking about, what mia could teach me. well, she is an assassin. so… ok, i’ll go with this. i want her to teach me some self defense, because let’s be honest, it’s good to know how to defend yourself, especially if you live in a big city. so yeah, that would be cool. mia is so badass. i love her character and i can’t wait for the final book in the trilogy!
8.) inej from “six of crows” by leigh bardugo
inej needs to be on this list, because i want to know, how to be a shadow! 😀 it would really come in handy to sneak up on people and listen what they have to say. because yes, there are always people talking behind your back. wouldn’t it be great to hear the truth? (i’m going dark here 😀 )
9.) lila from “a darker shade of magic” by v.e. schwab
lila is such a cool character. at the beginning i had my problems with her but i started to love her very soon. she is strong and does what she wants. she also is a loner but can open up and that’s what i loved about her. the thing she does in book two of the series, is amazing and i would love to learn from her. i don’t want to spoil it, so i’ll leave it at that. you know what i mean haha! that would be so cool! 🙂
10.) lara jean from “to all the boys i’ve loved before” by jenny han
i was a huge fan of lara jean from the beginning. i loved her personalities, i loved how she was the middle sister and all in all, who she was. spending time with her would be awesome. and what would we do? yes, she needs to teach me how to do these cookies! 😀 i am not a kitchen person and i can’t do anything at all, but i am up for learning haha 😀
so, these were my top ten female characters i would love to learn from. what do you think? do you agree? which female character would you like to learn from? let me know in the comments! 🙂
