Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Heroines from Books/TV/Movies

I like this topic so much this time, that I decided to give you 2 lists. One for TV/movie characters and one for awesome book heroines.

In no particular order.


1. Rose Tyler (Billy Piper, Doctor Who) --> Still my favorite companion. I just love her and the Doctor soo so much, she and David Tennant work so well together and everything just fits perfectly. I couldn't stop watching the episodes she was in. Soon after she was gone I unfortunately lost interest in the show...
2. Michonne (Danai Gurira, The Walking Dead) --> Biggest badass around and dat KATANA! I love that she turned up because the show needed a female heroine like her. I like Beth and Carol as well (I am only in the middle of Season 3 right now..), but Michonne is the only one who can keep up with the male characters when it comes to fighting walkers.
3. Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones) --> Amazing development in the books as well as the show!
4. Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick, Vikings) --> My girl-crush, SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL! And such a great fighter and so tough and just awesome!
5. Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) --> I wanted to be her when I was younger. Loved the show and adored Buffy for being such a kickass character! And she had Spike!! 
6. Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland, The Wizard of Oz) --> brave little girl and so loveable! I always liked the movie more than the book for some reason. 
7. Sarah Williams (Jennifer Connelly, Labyrinth) --> YOU HAVE NO POWER OVER ME!! I will forever love this movie and Sarah is probably my favorite heroine ever, I don't know how often I watched Labyrinth... And I am still shipping :D
8. Sailor Moon (Sailor Moon) --> Was a biig thing when I was in primary school, I always wanted to dress up as Sailor Moon and was a huge fan!

9. Mila Ayuhara (Attack No.1) --> Probably the same as with Sailor Moon. And that's also where I got my name from. This weird Volleyball show :D


1. Sorcha (Sevenwaters Series by Juliet Marillier) --> Some of the most beautiful and touching books I have ever read and the first still stays the best of all. Sorcha is such a strong young character and I cared about her so much! I was in tears more than once.

2. Vin (Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson) --> Vin is one of the best Fantasy heroines of all time and I love that I could follow her growing up and becoming such a powerful badass!

3. Lisbeth Salander (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson) --> Very fascinating character I would have loved to read more about. 

4. Arya Stark (A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin) --> One of the many strong women in GOT but still my favorite. She came such a long way and lost so much and is turning into an awesome assassin!

5. Althea Vestrit (Liveship Traders by Robin Hobb) --> My favorite character from this series. Althea is determined, strong and never gives up!

6. R'Shiel (Demon Child Trilogy by Jennifer Fallon) --> Sassy, scheming b*tch, can use magic and gets what she wants. Also I ship her and Brak so much!!!!

7. Phèdre (Phedre Trilogy by Jacqueline Carey) --> Aww, I just finished reading about her and although she is a Mary Sue sometimes, I like her a lot. She is very clever, beautiful, humble AND KNOWS JOSCELIN!

8. Nanny Ogg (Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett) --> Nanny is just pure awesomeness, she knows the Hedgehog Song, has the best cat in the world and is a brilliant cook :D

9. Sara (A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett) --> My sweet little brave Sarah! Brought tears to my eyes more than once and I loved the whole story and her attitude and awww! I wanna read it again!


  1. Oh Michonne is awesome! Great pick! I think I need to read the Mistborn Trilogy as Vin keeps popping up on this week's TTT. Fab list!

    1. Thanks! :) I can always recommend the Mistborn novels - they are amazing!

  2. I love how you chose to do both movie and book. Daenerys and Buffy are awesome choices and I also love the fact that you have seen the Labyrinth. Sorcha is at the very top of my list too! I also loved the movie A Little Princess, I need to read the book. Great list, thanks for sharing :)
    My TTT https://jazminjade.wordpress.com/2015/02/24/top-ten-tuesday-favourite-heroines/

  3. Excellent choices! We share quite a few characters!

  4. I loved this list from the moment I saw Rose and Michonne (If she ever gets killed off I'm going to be really upset, same with Daryl :) ) and then... Sarah Williams. I love her (and have to admit I can't help but sort of ship her with a certain goblin king, even though she total beat him in the end)

  5. Hallo Sarah,

    da sollte ich vielleicht auch noch in den ein oder anderen Film hineinschnuppern. Arya Stark war für mich der einzig wirkliche Grund länger an Game of Thrones (den Büchern) dran zu bleiben - ich hoffe wir erfahren noch ein bisschen was über sie im nächsten Band.

    Nanny Ogg mag ich auch sehr gerne. Tatsächlich haben mich erst die Hexen-Bücher von seinen Scheibenweltromanen überzeugen können.

    Liebe Grüße,
