Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish. This week we are listing our favorite kick-ass heroines! Before we get to the list, I want to say that I’m thinking of all of those impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Please be safe.
This list was surprisingly difficult to make, go figure. A few kick-ass heroines quickly came to mind, but I struggled reaching ten this week. We need more kick-ass heroines!
These book heroines kick-ass:
1. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games series – She’s the first one I thought of and is in a league of her own.
2. Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles series – A cyborg Cinderella, strong and brave.
3. Rose from The Vampire Academy series – Badass may be a better word for Rose, she does what she wants.
4. Tris from the Divergent series – She is the definition of Dauntless.
5. Yelena from The Study series – Strong, intelligent and steadfast.
6. Alexia from The Parasol Protectorate series – Sharp, independent, brave, and unafraid to use her parasol as a weapon.
7. Saba from Blood Red Road – Brave, doesn’t give up, loyal, strong.
8. Celaena from Throne of Glass – Cunning, and a skilled assassin with a quick wit.
9. Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone – She’s a witty art student, but also doesn’t shy away from any dangerous missions.
10. Cat from The Night Huntress series – Snarky vampire slayer who is a force to be reckoned with.
