Who is your favorite female lead character? And why? (And yes, of course, you can name more than one . . . I always have trouble narrowing down these things to one name, why should I force you to?)
I can't believe I'm capable of choosing just one. It came to me immediately - Anne of Green Gables. I love the books, I love the films, I love her. I read all the books (I can't remember how many there are, but they go until Anne has a family of her own) - I remember I got the whole set in Polish for my Name Day when I was 12 or 13.
Anne is a brilliant heroine. She's spunky and strong and fun and sentimental and a total dreamer. She messes up a lot, but in the end finds her way. I like that she didn't lose her character when she grew up - she changed of course, she wasn't a kid anymore, but you could always see where she came from.
I wanted to be Anne. I wanted to live on Prince Edward Island - to go there is still one of my biggest dreams, one that will hopefully come true soon. I wanted to have her courage, her strong will. I find it funny that to this day, after so many books read, Anne has not been replaced in my heart. She's my ultimate female heroine.
