HUNTED (Cheryl Rainfield) Blog Tour: Top Ten List & Giveaway

I am very excited to be a part of the Hunted Blog Tour! Author Cheryl Rainfield is stopping by today with an awesome guest post, plus there's a giveaway! I LOVED Hunted and you can find out why by reading my review.

Caitlyn is a telepath in a world where having any Paranormal power is illegal. Caitlyn is on the run from government troopers, who can enslave, torture, or even kill her, or make her hunt other Paranormals. When Caitlyn settles down in a city, she falls for Alex, a Normal (someone without Paranormal powers), which is dangerous because he can turn her in. And she discovers renegade Paranormals who want to destroy all Normals. Caitlyn must decide whether she's going to stay in hiding to protect herself, or take a stand to save the world.


My Top 10 YA Heroines
Cheryl Rainfield

1.   Bryn from Raised byWolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
2.   Dicey from Homecoming by Cynthia Voigt
3.   Katniss from TheHunger Games by Suzanne Collins
4.   Kit from Down a DarkHall by Lois Duncan
5.   Alanna from Alanna:The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce
6.   Eona from Eon by Allison Goodman
7.   Amy from Across theUniverse by Beth Revis
8.   Rain from The GlassSwallow by Julia Golding
9.   Gwen from Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
10. Elnora from A Girl ofthe Limberlost by Gene Stratton Porter

And I also had to include these top favorite middle grade heroes:

Creel from DragonSlippers by Jessica Day George
Anne from Anne ofGreen Gables by LM Montgomery
Anna from From Anna by Jean Little
Julie from Julie by Cora Taylor
Amy from OrdinaryPrincess by MM Kaye
Wren from Wren to theRescue by Sherwood Smith
Rachel from The Pigsare Flying by Emily Rodda

All of these strong-girl characters overcome great odds, fight against the various forms of oppression, sexism, abuse, and/or threat that they face, and never give up. They come out stronger than ever, and they are all emotionally good characters who you enjoy rooting for. I love all of these characters and all of these books, and if you haven't read some of them, I recommend picking them up!

I would want to read people's minds. I'm paranoid and nosy and want to know what people are thinking all the time. lol

Kelly said...

I would like to be able to control the weather.

Robert Zimmermann said...

There is such a variety of paranormal powers to choose from. It's hard to choose one, let alone a few. I think it would be cool to have some sort of control over the elements. Most of the time that's in the form of "doing magic." Like if I could create fire from my palms or conjure up water, I'd be happy with myself.
