Reading Meme - Day 15

Day 15 - Favorite Female Character

Like I said yesterday, picking a favorite is difficult. Fortunately, though, a favorite female character was easier to decide on than a favorite male character.

Alexia Tarabotti, from the Parasol Protectorate Series, by Gail Carriger.

I absolutely love her! She's smart in an age when educated women were feared. She knows her limitations and flaws, and she accepts them rather than fight against them. She has a sense of humor, and excellent fashion sense. She has crazy friends both with horrid taste in hats and amazing sense of flamboyance. And she carries a steampunk parasol capable of defending against even robot ladybugs. What's not to love?
