Top Ten Favorite Book Heroines

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.

As much as I love this prompt, I really struggled with this list. You see, I love strong heroines - girls that I can really connect to. However... I have so much trouble putting into words why I like them - and it seems as though just saying 'I like her' isn't enough. So, in an effort just to get this list out, I'm doing something I hate to do. I'm just making this a list. No reason or explanation given. Just a list of the heroines I like and the book/series they are from. I hope you all will just bare with me and I sincerely hope that next week's prompt is easier for me.
