Summer Lovin' Read-a-thon: Day 3

Day 3: "Look At Me, I'm Sandra Dee"
Introduce us to your favorite fictional female – What does she look like? Is there an actress that you think of when you think of the character? Is she tough or timid? You could do a mock interview with your character, or create a bio/resume for her.

This was actually a pretty easy question for me. It didn't seem like it was going to be when I first looked at it, but the second I went to type I knew exactly who my favourite fiction females were.
Tessa Gray
If you don't know who Tessa Gray is, she's the main female character of Cassandra Clares' Infernal Devices Trilogy
Why is she my favourite fictional female?
Well first of all, Tessa is a bookworm. That was one of the first things that drew me to her. She's so smart and intelligent, and she loves nothing more than losing herself in a great book. She's always reading and quoting her favourite novels. I always looked forward to those parts of the book.
Second of all, she's a badass. Seriously. I'm not going to mention what she is, because that will just ruin it for anyone who hasn't read the trilogy. That's not the only thing that makes her a badass though. She's feisty and tough. She's willing to fight and risk her life for the people she loves.
She's just amazing, and that's why I love her.

Hermione Granger
Hermione is another intelligent and badass female character. I've admired her for as long as I can remember. When I was young, I always used to pretend I was Hermione. I wanted to be a witch and be as smart as she was. She was just such an inspiration to me, and she still is.
I mean she's incredibly intelligent, she's a witch, she can stand up for herself and she's just amazing. 
I can't remember a time when I haven't loved and admired her.

Emma Watson did a brilliant job at portraying Hermione. I honestly couldn't think of anyone else fitting into this role. She was just so perfect.
