Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted at The Broke and The Bookish where they post a list idea and everyone is welcome to post the list with their own answers. This week’s theme is “Top Ten Favorite Kick-Ass Heroines“.
1. Elena – Bitten (Women of the Otherworld #1)
The only female werewolf, Elena is a sharp and cunning journalist living in Canada who refuses to become the ‘trophy’ for the males.
2. Althea Vestrit – The Liveship Traders – Probably my favourite on the list!
When her beloved family liveship is lost to her, Althea works her way to try and get it back. Mouthy and stubborn, Althea refuses to stay home and be courted as tradition dictates, and instead puts hard work and cunning into getting herself a ship!
3. Yelena – Poison Study (Study Trilogy #1)
4. Liselle – The Mallorean – Second favourite heroine.
Liselle isn’t the main character, but she is definitely kick-ass. An impressive spy who uses her innocent looks to fool her way into people’s trust, Liselle is cunning, witty and a good fighter. She’s also not afraid to go for what she wants – even if he might happen to be the world’s most notorious bachelor!
5. Katniss – The Hunger Games
6. Hermione Granger – Harry Potter
7. Lisbeth – Millennium Trilogy
8. Brienne – A Game of Thrones
9. Arya Stark – A Game of Thrones
While I CAN think of filler names for slot 10, I can’t think of any heroines that really reached out and grabbed me in the way these did, so I’m going to leave it at that!
