Mari's favorite heroines from 2011:
So I've noticed a trend in my choice of favorite heroines.. most of them have a violent streak to them. I'm not pro violence IRL by no means but when it comes to vampires, zombies and outright cruel people in literature I have to admit that I enjoy me some ass kicking! Hell (pardon the language) I would never give in to a brain sucking zombie or a vampire drooling for my blood without putting up a damn good fight. They all stand up for themselves, something I believe is very important that every girl does! Anyways here are my choices for 2011:
Val from Bite Me by Parker Blue:
Val is just such a great and entertaining heroine. She is vulnerable yet strong and a ace when it comes to kicking some serious vampire ass. This is a young adult series to pick up when you need a fast paced purely entertaining read!

Mim from All I Ever Wanted by Vikki Wakefield:
Mim is one of the best female characters I’ve ever come across. We connected from the very first page. Mim is a dreamer and she has a set of rules that will help her achieve her goal. Through out the novel Mim has to confront her own rules and one by one they fall.. A very strong, level-headed, engaging character I couldn’t help but fall head over heels for her. Great personality and bff material. If you haven’t heard of this excellent debut novel I strongly recommend that you take a look at it!

After writing down the following three names for my favorite heroines, I realized that they're all strong, independent women with a somewhat sarcastic sense of humor - and they're all readers! MacKayla loves Harry Potter, and always prefers the book over the movie. Georgina works in a bookstore, and crushes on her favorite author. Merit was, before being turned, a grad student at the English department of the University of Chicago, and loves spending time in the Cadogan library. So I guess my favorite heroines are all different versions of who I kinda wanna be. If that makes sense;)
