Top 10 Characters of 2011

Today's topic: Top 10 Characters of 2011. Since I did Book Boyfriends yesterday, I think I will do all heroines (except one) today.

Today, I am going to do a quick post...the last three have taken me several hours to put together and I am just not in the mood for that tonight. Sorry!

So...these are in no particular order...well, except Alex, cause tonight is a super important night. She's going up against Katniss in the Heroine Tourney over at YA Sisterhood. Be sure to go vote...also, Jennifer L. Armentrout (author of Half-Blood) is having a live VLOG at 11:00 PM EST. Stay tuned.

Vote for Alex HERE!

1. Alex from Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Alex is phenomenal.  She has so much anger and so much life. Things get taken from her that should never be taken. She struggles through her difficulties with her head held high. She fights for what she believes is right...always. Alex has had to learn to keep her mouth shut at times but mostly, she says what she believes. She kicks daimon butt. She fights for change. She is complete awesomeness.

2. Katy from Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Not only did she lose her dad to cancer and have to move to another state that's not Florida but she also has to deal with Daemon...her nasty but hot next door neighbor...and she saves his life. 

3. Lola from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. She lives through the embarrassment of heart-break and moves on. She dresses in costumes. She designs fantastical fashions. She falls in love again and lives through the heart-ache...again. She falls into a deep depression. Realizes who she truly loves. Pulls it together before she jumps into another relationship. She loves her family and friends. She is flawed and perfect at the same time.

4. Helen from Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. She is forced to deal with a fate she can't escape. She is strong, fierce, and loyal. She learns to love instead of hate.

5. MacKayla Lane from the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning. I love her so much. She grows from a young girl into a beautiful and strong woman who knows what she wants. She's tough, sassy, and funny. 

6. Calla from Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer. A werewolf with an attitude and priorities. She is fighting against a system that is wrong. Her group has been lead to believe things that might not be as true as she once thought. She refuses to lie down and give up. She fights for the underdog. Relentlessly.

7. Anna from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Anna gets shipped to another country for her senior year of high school. She is alone but makes friends fast. She knows what she matter what, and she goes after it.

8. Archer from Hushed by Kelley York. Yes, I know...he killed people for love. Ridiculous, right? And he's not a heroine but I love him all the same. I like Archer because he progressed so much during the book. He acknowledged his mistakes and bettered himself. 

9. Clary from City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare. Do I need to explain? Really? She's pure awesomeness. That's it, that's all.

10. Tessa from Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare. I need to explain?

Ugh...I just can't think of any more. I'm sure I forgot someone...when I figure out who, I will add them. LOL!

Don't forget to vote for Alex. I will put the link here when it is up.
