“I’m Captivated by you baby, like a firework show.”

Isabel Lightwood commands every room she walks into, and no one can deny that, like a fireworks show, she draws everyone’s attention. As Casandra Clare’s universe grows, Isabel remains one of the most badass women in the series.

“I never saw you coming, and I’ll never be the same.”

State of Grace

Sarah J. Maas surprised us once again by not introducing this beloved love interest until book three. We never saw our beloved fae warrior coming and could not predict how fast we would learn to love him. Once again, we fell hard for another strong, tattooed fae warrior.

Katniss Everdeen – The Hunger Games

“Cause every time you smile, I smile / And every time you shine, I’ll shine for you.”

Jump Then Fall

Katniss is not your traditional optimistic protagonist, making her smile a rare sight as she tackles the horrors surrounding her. She doesn’t like to shine, but the girl on fire continues to blaze brightly. We were helpless as we were all engulfed by her flame.

Mr. Darcy – Pride and Prejudice

“All I can say is I was enchanted to meet you.”

Enchanted

Jane Austen captured our hearts with this awkward and stoic male lead, and we have been enchanted ever since. Mr. Darcy didn’t charm his way into our hearts the traditional way, but he is one protagonist who continues to persevere across time.

Daenerys Targaryen – Game of Thrones

“Who knows if she never showed up, what could’ve been / There goes the most shameless woman this town has ever seen.”

The Last Great American Dynasty

Daenerys took Westeros by storm, and the seven kingdoms will never be the same. Daenerys defied the social norms pitted against her and rose to power against all odds. We all stood in awe of her amazing storyline, and she continues to reign inside our hearts.

The Darkling – Shadow and Bone

“He’s so tall and handsome as hell / He’s so bad, but he does it so well.”

Wildest Dreams

Admit it, this is one villain we were all secretly rooting for. The Darkling is just too charming and alluring for us not to fall in love. What can we say we’re a sucker for a bad boy?

Hermione Granger – Harry Potter

“Come feel this magic I’ve been feeling since I met you.”

Hey Stephen

Hermione Granger apparated into our hearts the moment she walked into the train compartment. She’s headstrong, brave, and one of the brightest witches of her age. We may never be able to read the series for the first time again, but her magical hold on our hearts will never diminish.

Jest – Heartless

“All eyes on you, my magician / All eyes on us / You make everyone dissappear”

So It Goes

Who needs a knight in shining armor when you could be swept off your feet by a charming court jester? We were entranced by his magic tricks and charmed by his sense of humor. We can say that Jest took the spotlight and made all the other characters disappear.

Jo March – Little Women

“But with you I’d dance in a storm / In my best dress / Fearless”

Fearless

Jo March makes us feel fearless and willing to take on what the world brings. She’s a writer facing the struggles of womanhood, and poverty but she embraces her passions and charges forward. Jo is a force of nature who impacts everyone she meets. We all need a Jo March in our lives.

Percy Jackson – Percy Jackson and the Olympians

“We were both young when I first saw you / I close my eyes and the flashback starts.”

Love Story

Most of us were young when we met Percy Jackson and all it took was one sarcastic comment and we were head over heels. Percy is a childhood crush that we continue to love to this day. Face it, we’ll read every one of Riordan’s novels if we get a chance to see seaweed brain back in action.

Persephone – A Touch of Darkness

“Best believe I’m still bejeweled / When I walk in the room / I can still make the whole place shimmer.”

Bejeweled

Get you a girl who can do both! Persephone rules as both the Goddess of Spring and the Queen of the Dead. She proves how powerful you can be once you embrace your full identity. After all only an icon can make the underworld shimmer.

Jamie Fraser – Outlander

“I like shiny things, but I’d marry you with paper rings.”

Paper Rings

Jamie Fraser’s life has had its share of ups and downs, but that didn’t make us love him any less. Whether he’s the lord of Lollybroch or an outlaw on the run we can’t deny that we’d marry him with “paper rings”.
