Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Broke and Bookish. This week the topic is top ten heroines.
3. Margaret Hale: Another resilient woman, when her life is turned upside down Margaret finds a way to hold it all together. She also has a very strong sense of right and wrong and has no problem expressing her opinions on what she perceives to be injustice. Book: North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
6. Molly and Ginny Weasley: Molly is most definitely the boss of that house and is fiercely protective of those she loves. Ginny can run rings around all the boys in magic and is very much her mothers daughter. Book: Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling
8. Sharon Rabbitte: Eldest daughter of the Rabbitte family after falling pregnant in dubious circumstances she faces the challenges with true Dublin wit and the support of her mad family. Book: The Snapper (Part of the Barrytown Trilogy) by Roddy Doyle
9. Pauline, Pettrova, and Posy Fossil: I loved Ballet Shoes as a child, the story of the 3 Fossil girls, orphans who attend stage school and perform to help support their family. Every girl will identify with one of the sisters, responsible and perfect eldest Pauline, tom boy and middle child Pettrova and Posy the baby and natural ballet dancer. I identified with Pauline but wanted to be Posy. Book: Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfield
