June 17th-24th we're sharing our favorite kickass heroines! Come meet these awesome ladies and find out why they're the best of the best. Be sure to stop by each blog. There's a giveaway at every stop!
As much as I love a great hero, it's the heroines who matters most to me. Whether I'm reading a romance or high fantasy I want an intelligent, strong woman or girl in whom I can find an avatar after a fashion. From Selene in the Underworld films to Storm of the X-Men comics I have always gravitated toward powerful females who can both keep up with their male peers and still hold on to their emotional, oft times inherently feminine natures. They don't have to be perfect, in fact I prefer them deeply flawed and enjoy the journey with them as they get stronger or heal from their pasts or learn to control new powers.
It should come as no surprise that when I'm looking for a great read featuring a heroine I can love she's most likely coming from the Urban Fantasy shelves. I love a lot of Young Adult heroines as well, but today I wanted to share 9 of my favorite heroines. They kick ass, save the world, and often get the guy... they're totally like me. ;)
(These are in no particular order and no particular relevance to specific favorite books, just the covers I happened to click on when I was choosing heroines.)
For my giveaway I decided to give away the first Arcadia Bell book because it's such a terrific series and unlike some of these it's not a finished series yet. Please enter via the Rafflecopter. Winner must be able to accept a gifted Kindle book through Amazon.com.
Now hop along to these other great blogs to find out who their favorite heroines are and more chances to win great books!
