Six favorite redheads in literature

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Becky Ferreira tagged six favorite redheads in literature, including:
Ygritte (A Song of Ice and Fire series, by George R. R. Martin)

Ygritte is kind of the archetypal redhead. Stubborn, fearless, and bossy, she embodies many of the tropes popularly associated with the hair color. Among her people, her locks are considered lucky, and “kissed by fire,” but she’s not all that unique in Westeros, follicle-wise. Red hair also runs heavily through the Stark and Tully families, while the priestess Melisandre has been “kissed by fire” in a much more literal way.

A Song of Ice and Fire is among Ferreira six best books with dragons, Joel Cunningham's seven top books featuring long winters. The Red Wedding in A Storm of Swords is one of Ferreira's top six most momentous weddings in fiction. The Lannister family from A Game of Thrones is one of Jami Attenberg's top ten dysfunctional families in literature. A Game of Thrones is one of Nicole Hill's top six books on gluttony.
