My awesome friend Kim Harris Thacker (writer and mommy) is one of the hosts of Bookshop Talk, a fabulous new blog all about, yes you guessed it, books! They're currently accepting reviews and guest posts, so go submit something, you could win a book - always a good thing.
The other day they featured a rather fabulous post by Lauren Gardner, all about fictional crushes. A favourite topic of mine. I left a very long comment, very long. I have many crushes. Awesome Kim also left a comment, including Ginny from the Harry Potter series.
Which got me thinking about girls I'm crushing on. While I tend to crush on the boys in books who I'd love in real life (no bad boys here thank you!), with girls it's a case of opposites attracts.
So here are my current girl crushes:
of The Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead
I'm currently tearing my way through this series. While I like the guys, I'm not swooning over any of them, but I have a serious crush on Rose.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Team Gale, Team Peeta? No, no, no TEAM KATNISS all the way. (well maybe a little Team Peeta too!)
Harry Potter by J. K Rowling
How can you not love Hermione? She's the cleverest witch of her generation, plus defender of House Elf rights and brilliant friend to Harry. And Emma Watson does such a brilliant job in the movies she's made me love her more.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
If Mr Darcy is the ultimate boy crush, then Lizzie is height of my girl crushes. Wouldn't you love her as a best friend? She'd always have your back with a witty comeback or put down for the mean girls.
So there you go, my girl crushes, they're all girls who can kick ass, either literally, with magic or with words.
So which girls do you love and why?
