I received compensation for this post. All opinions are my own.
I love to read young adult books, especially those with a fantasy theme, that show a strong female character leading the story. These books have been some of my favorite and have inspired me to be strong, stand up for myself, learn who I am and be proud of that, and other important lessons. Here are my picks that I voted for:
I have loved reading The Host, Graceling, Divergent, Narnia and other books that have taken me on a journey to a whole new world. However, if I had to pick an ultimate favorite strong female character, it would have to be Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games. She starts her journey be volunteering herself to take the place of her sister who was drawn to battle in the “games” ran by the city. She battles her way throughout the games and proves she is a force to be reckoned with. Even when she is warned that she is being watched, she stands up for what she believes in not letting the government control and force her into being what they picture her to be. I don’t know that I could be as strong as she is.
