Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. These week, we've piled together our favourite kick-ass heroines. This is just a list of girls and women whom I think have defined the phrase 'kick-ass' through their literary battles. Enjoy! Here they are:
1. Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)
She is one of the most bad-ass characters I have ever read! I would never want to piss her off.
2. Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games)
This one is fairly self-explanatory. She is one heck of a survivor. With a bow.
3. Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)
With just her brain power and a wooden stick she could win any fight. Seriously.
4. Tris (Divergent)
When Tris joins the Dauntless faction, I think she absorbs the meaning of 'dauntless' and takes it to a whole new level.
5. Celaena Sordothian (Throne of Glass)
The land's most accomplished assassin that comes in a deceptively adorable little package!
6. Isabelle Lightwood (Mortal Instruments)
She kills demons. With a whip and witty tongue while wearing heels!
7. Katsa (Graceling)
She is bestowed with the powerful ability to kill and she uses it as the ultimate weapon. Yikes.
8. Eowyn (Lord of the Rings)
She is no man!!! Just a witch-king killing machine.
9. June Iparis (Legend)
In Legend, June is rather book smart rather than street-wise, yet I still wouldn't want to get on her wrong side!
10. Yelena Zaltana (Poison Study)
She is such a witty and abrasive person. Not to mention her extremely epic magical ability.
