my top five favorite female book characters

Copy of why hello there!

Happy international women’s day! If you are a girl then YOU GO! Welcome to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web!

In honor of international women’s day, I am going to be sharing some of my favorite female book characters! It was quite hard to narrow them all down to five, but i am happy with my choices!

lets get started

1. Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre is the intelligent and witty heroine featured in Charlotte Bronte’s; Jane Eyre.

I love Jane so much! She is such an incredible character and this is why. She was tough, smart and quite independent, but what shocked me was how she held her tongue. Jane Eyre is set in an era where women were considered less than men. Women were not allowed to do many things that we women can do now. What I loved about Jane was how she knew how to be bold and still respectful. She could tell any man off with class, which is really cool.

Here are some examples of her witty remarks.

“I would always rather be happy than dignified.”

“’I am not an angel,’ I asserted; ‘and I will not be one till I die: I will be myself.”

“I am no bird, and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will.”

2. Anne Shirley

Anne Shirly is the bright and spunky kindred spirit from Anne of Green Gables.

Anne has always been one of my favorite characters! She is clever, fun and so imaginative. I can relate to her so much. Here are some of my favorite quotes from her books.

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.” 

she is so adorable and just a sweet smol character.

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” 

“People laugh at me because I use big words. But if you have big ideas, you have to use big words to express them, haven’t you?”

YES ANNE THAT IS SO TRUE haha

3.Scout Finch

Scout ( Jean Lousie) Is the amazing narrator of To Kill a Mockingbird. She is such a bright young girl and its really cool seeing the setting and era through her eyes. Scout is bold and such an interesting character. She is intelligent and, by the standards of her time and place, a tomboy. Scout has a combative streak and a basic faith in the goodness of the people in her community. As the novel progresses, this faith is tested by the hatred and prejudice that emerge during Tom Robinson’s trial. Scout eventually develops a more grown-up perspective that enables her to appreciate human goodness without ignoring human evil. Here are some of scouts best quotes:

Atticus had used every tool available to free men to save Tom Robinson, but in the secret courts of men’s hearts Atticus had no case. Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed.

4. Cress

Cress is the adorable damsel in distress from the lunar chronicles who is waiting for her prince in shining armor to save her. CRESS IS SO PRECIOUS. I love cress, because sometimes in really good books it is hard to see girly girls represented fairly. In many books, I read the heroine is usually a tomboyish, bold girl who doesn’t want love. But cress is the opposite. Cress is a coding genius that loves opera and romance. AND SHE IS SUCH A CUTE CHARACTER! I really love her sooo much! Later in the book, Cress learns the truth about love and she lives happily ever after with her dashing hero until the next book comes and there’s a whole war. 😉

quotes:

“Maybe there isn’t such a thing as fate. Maybe it’s just the opportunities we’re given, and what we do with them. I’m beginning to think that may be great, epic romances don’t just happen. We have to make them ourselves.” 

5. Jo March

Jo is the bright, aspiring writer in Little Women. is based on Louisa May Alcott herself, which makes the story semi-autobiographical. Jo has a temper and a quick tongue, although she works hard to control both. She is a tomboy and reacts with impatience to the many limitations placed on women and girls. She hates romance in her real life and wants nothing more than to hold her family together.

Quotes:

“I like good strong words that mean something…” 

“I’ll try and be what he loves to call me, ‘a little woman,’ and not be rough and wild, but do my duty here instead of wanting to be somewhere else,”

“I want to do something splendid before I go into my castle, something heroic or wonderful that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead. I don’t know what, but I’m on the watch for it, and mean to astonish you all someday. I think I shall write books, and get rich and famous, that would suit me, so that is my favorite dream.”

I am really excited for nano this year, and just a LITTLE STRESSED OUT! *twitches* AND NOW ITS TIME FOR A LITTLE PIECE OF WRITING TO INSPIRE ALL OUR BUDDING AUTHORS 😀

Asher walked into the room in deep thought, wondering why he was even here. With a sigh, he took a seat in the blank room. Almost like the blank page when you start Nanowrimo on November 1st and you have absolutely no idea what to write.

“Hi there Asher, take a seat! Oh, you already have, never mind then” I smiled, waving at the insecure bean.

“Greetings and Salutations.” Asher nodded, feeling a bit nervous. He had never been in an interview before. He started fidgeting with the zipper on his black trenchcoat. It was getting warm in the room so he started to take it off.

“Uh, have you seen Cleo yet?” I asked, hoping not to frighten the anxious boy.

“No, sorry Miss. I haven’t… I don’t really know who Cleo is…” He mumbled, taking off the rest of his coat and sitting it next to him in the empty chair beside him. Then the door burst wide open and a flurry of a human ran in, obviously a mess. 

“Sorry, I’m Late!” The girl stammered, nearly dropping everything in her hand. She struggled to stand still, wobbling about and trying to regain balance.

I blinked, trying to conceal a giggle at the poor girl. Two anxious younglings in one day. That was different from the usual. “Are you Cleo?” I asked,”I’m Ava and I will be asking you two a few questions.”

“Yeah! I’m Cleo, sorry about the bad introduction, I was pretty busy this morning and…yeah.” She said, finally taking a seat in the blank white chair.

Asher glanced over at the girl and smiled a bit. “Hi, I’m Asher.” The girl nodded at him and softly smiled.

“Alrighty…” I said, biting my lip and looking over my list.”Just to let you both know, you are in the writing hub. Fictional characters that will soon be developed and sent to the other realities or fictional worlds.”

Asher felt quite confused. He never thought that he was fictional, or made up. He had feelings and thoughts and… he most certainly thought he was real. “Soo… we aren’t human like you?”

I sighed, feeling somewhat confused myself. It was hard to explain how stories and characters were made and it wasn’t often talked about. I had no training in this subject. “Uhhh… It’s hard to explain…I don’t even fully know all of the world’s writing secrets. You’d have to ask the creativity master.” I mumbled.

Cleo hadn’t spoken for a while, but her ears perked when she heard of some master. “Creativity Master?” She thought aloud, unsure if she was truly asking a question or not.

“Nevermind that! On with the questions!” I said, quickly scanning through my paper. Maybe I really wasn’t set out for the amazing role as an author, maybe I should just go back to reading books every day.

maybe I should just quit… and stop dreaming

“Ava?” The room is blurry and I hear people calling my name. I blink and open my eyes to the blank piece of paper facing me. Then I look up out the window facing me above my desk and I see a bird. A little yellow bird trying to fly. It falls at first, but then… it soars. The little bird keeps trying and trying until it can fly so high it touches the clouds.

With a smile on my face, I seize my pencil and begin to write. Because just like the little bird, I will teach myself how to fly.

Wow, that didn’t turn out well. 

I mainly posted that because I really wanted to write and I failed. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS DURING NANO!:P

moving on yo
