Who here loves a great female MC?
Top 3 Thursday this week wants us to share some of our favourite books with female leads. There are SO MANY amazing options to choose from, so these are just the top three I could think of on my lunch break.
Cinder / The Lunar Chronicles
by Marissa Meyer
I finally finished the series recently so I have a renewed obsession with Iko, but the series also has a pretty amazing female lead. No matter how many times she is belittled or how many set-backs she faces, she keeps going and does her best to help others.
Also, brilliant fantasy/retelling series that everyone should read if they have not already.
Bleak / The Oremere Chronicles
by Helen Scheuerer
Bleak is a flawed in many ways, but I cannot help but admire her strength and determination. I also like that there is no magic fix for her flaws, just an acceptance and learning how to live with them.
A trilogy I 100% recommend you read.
Kaylan / Relic
by Bronwyn Eley
This is a very recent read, but Kaylan has stuck in my mind. This books highlights some of the best and worst any world could have to offer, and Kaylan was the right character to tell this story.
Relic is book 1, which you should definitely read, and I cannot wait for book 2!
