I don’t think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains. – Anne Frank.

Last night, I frantically (yet carefully so I did not miss anything!) finished reading my e-book that was about to expire. This morning, I remembered I had to write this blog post. The book I just finished was Veronica Roth’s Divergent, and I was inspired to talk about strong female characters. There are so many in literature! They are kind and beautiful and smart and powerful. Here are a few of my favorites:

Tris Prior from Divergent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games by Suzann Collins

Dr. Temperance Brennan from Kathy Reich’s series of the same name

Tess Monaghan from Laura Lippman’s series of the same name

Rachel Morgan from Kim Harrison’s Hollows series

Scarlett O’Hara from Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell (think about all she accomplished!)

Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (who else could handle Mr. Darcy like Elizabeth?)

Hazel Lancaster from John Green’s The Fault in our Stars

Who are some of your favorite strong female characters?
