My name is Chiara and I’m a Bookworm.
Today’s topic is Independent Woman. I meant to post this earlier but between driving lessons and work it got forgotten about. So here we are… independent women.
But first some general house keeping. Top 5 Wednesdays is a book meme created by Lainey and currently hosted by Samantha. Click on each name to find their blog and more about them.
Number 5 …
Anastasia is one of my favourite princesses, Disney or otherwise. She is most definitely an independent woman. Dmitri is just a stepping stone to her. Yes, she falls for him, but she does that after achieving everything else.
Can you get anyone even more independent Jules? If you haven’t read the book (it is still rather new) I won’t give too much away.
One of my favourite characters at the moment is Celaena. I know many of you will be Sarah J. Maas fans but I am still quite new to her books but I would definitely say she is independent. She is a female assassin for crying out loud!
My go to for many fictional top 5s is Hermione. Best bookworm. Best friend. Smarts. She is amazing! But most of all she is an independent woman. She doesn’t rely on Harry and Ron to do things. They rely on her.
If I mention Hermione how could I get away with not methionine the actor who brought her to life. Emma Watson. She is a wonderful actor. Of that we can’t deny. But it is everything she does outside of the role. The example she is for independent women all round the world. She is not fictional, and I suppose in a way she is my favourite feminist rather than a strictly independent woman, however I hope you’ll forgive me for forgetting the rules.
And that, as they say, is that!
Do you agree? Do you disagree? Have your say in the comments or leave a link to your top5 and I’ll have a read ( or a watch) and let you know what I think.
Once again, my name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
