This topic is about the ladies who don’t need no man or want a man but put themselves or their goals first. I love some independent ladies because I myself am an independent lady. I may have a man, but he doesn’t distract me from my goals or wants in any way.
Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at Ginger Reads Lainey and is now run by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes. You can check out the goodreads group by clicking on this link . So, let’s get started with this week’s topic.
5. Amari – Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
She went on a mission with someone who despised her. Her own brother was hunting her down. And she dealt with that herself. No man necessary.
4. Enne – Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
All she wanted was to find her mother. She didn’t let a guy get in the way of that. She even decided that he was not worth giving up her search for even though she loved him.
3. Katniss Everdeen – The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Yes, I am aware of the fact that her romance with Peeta played a huge part in the Games, but I also know that she was only using that to her advantage to survive. If they had not announced that 2 players from the same district could live, she would’ve kept going on her own. Their love was just a ploy to keep them both alive and it worked.
2. Mare Barrow – Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Yes, there’s a little romance in this book but it doesn’t take over the plot. Mare is a strong female character in my opinion. She does everything she can to protect her best friend, even if it means risking her own life to do so. She also does everything she can to survive in a world where she does not belong.
1. Sylvie/Mirage – Amber & Dusk by Lyra Selene.
She has a goal. She does everything in her power to get it. And she does so without needing a man. She is honestly one of the only characters I have read so far who didn’t constantly think about a guy. Her main thought process was about getting what she wanted and the best way to get it.
Thank you for reading. Byes 😋
