Why I Love Wednesdays... Favorite Female Lead Character

Reflections of a Bookaholic

I am returning with my feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concerns our Favorite Female Lead Character

Why I Love...Kerou
I admit that this question is difficult for many reasons but mainly because I can think of so many.  Most of the books I read have female lead characters and how can I choose just one?  Well I can pick Katniss because, you know, she's awesome.  But she isn't my favorite.  Yet, she is the first character that came to my mind.

But I'm leaning toward Kerou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone.  But... I can't tell you why because it would be a total spoiler.  Anyone read that book?  Do you know what I'm talking about.  It's kind of like getting two for the price of one.  I will tell you that Kerou has blue hair and it grows that way because she wished it.  And she has a dysfunctional family unit that loves her and she loves them.  And an Angel tried to kill her and she fought back. But most of all, there is more to Kerou than even she knows and I love that part too!  You just have to read this book.  I can't wait for the next one.

Totally inadequate answer, I know.

  1. You ask some tough questions. :) I grew to love Lyra in the His Dark Materials series. I'm also a big fan of Lisbeth Salander from the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series.

    1. I've been meaning to read the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I'm unfamiliar with the characters you mentioned but now I'm so curious.

  2. Oooo now I'm curious.
    I do need to try this series.

  3. I need to get to this. I do have it on audio.

  4. Ive heard great things about Smoke & Bone. I feel like I should just read it already. Katniss is my choice.

    1. Katniss is a great choice. I didn't choose her because she's not my favorite character in the series. So I knew I could do better.

  5. This was a fun theme! I haven't read the series you listed yet.

  6. ^sigh* I know, I know, I'll read the book.
    I've had it for almost a year but somehow haven't picked it up, but you do make her sound pretty awesome so I will :D
