TTT #14: Favourite Kick-Ass Heroines

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Each week they give a topic, and then other blogs make their top ten lists for that topic.

This week's topic is.......Top Ten Favourite Kick-Ass Heroines

1) Alanna from Tamora Pierce's Tortall books, mostly the Song of the Lionness Quartet: Well, she becomes a knight. Gotta be pretty kick-ass to achieve that, no?

2) Katerina from The Gathering Storm by Robin Bridges: She's got the kind of 'do-something-about-it' that I've always wanted. There's a problem? She'll walk right out of that boarding school to go solve it. Consequences? Deal with them later.

3) Gemma Doyle from A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray: I'm reading this book right now, and like Katerina, she's got that 'do-something' that makes characters awesome.

4) Callie from Starters by Lissa Price: She, too, does something. She is a bit more aware of getting in trouble and messing up, yet she still is brave enough to do what needs to be done to the best of her abilities. 

5) Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling (do I really need to say the author every time?): I turned on the tv to Prisoner of Azkaban the other day, and it was right at the scene where Hermione punches Malfoy in the face. Kick-ass.

6) Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: She wins a fight to the death and beats the government all at once. Any more explanation necessary? I think not.

7) Tris Prior from Divergent/Insurgent by Veronica Roth: At first glance, she is a small quiet girl from Abnegation, but once you get to know her, her bad ass, "nothing-can-phase-me" side comes out. She's just all around epic, and a character that I look up to.

8) Cinder from Cinder by Marrisa Meyer: She was thrust into the middle of a complex situation that completely reverses what she has believed and known for her whole life. But still she keeps going, and doesn't let it get her down. She is brave, strong willed and a brilliant mechanic. Pretty kick ass if you ask me!

9) Isabelle from The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare: She's snotty and arrogant but she's deadly at the same time.

10) Princess Sylviianel from Pegasus by Robin McKinley: Sylvi is another of those characters that does something when she wants it.
