It’s that time of year again! Becky and I always make sure to post on this day and this year, we have decided to share some of our favourite female characters in books and games.

| Lara Croft,
Tomb Raider |
If you talk to me for longer than ten minutes, then I will probably bring Lara Croft up at least once. I grew up with this character and she really changed the game (har har) for female characters in video games. The Tomb Raider games have always focussed around Lara and her abilities, rather than introducing love interests and having other people save the day. She’s flawed but she’s excellent and there’s a reason she’s still as popular today as she was 20 years ago.
