Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is top ten heroines from books.

10. rites of passage Sam McKenna from Rites of Passage – Joy N Hensley. This girl kicks some major ass through the book as she proves a girl can handle and succeed at military school just as well as any boy.

9. throne of glass big Celaena Sardothian from Throne of Glass – Sarah J Maas. She knows she awesome and she owns it.

8. vampire academy big Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy – Richelle Mead. She’s going to do whatever it takes to protect her best friend, she’s been training most of her life to fight Strigoi.

7. snow like ashes Meira from Snow Like Ashes – Sara Raasch. This girl is part of a very small group determined to re-gain their Kingdom. She’s wiling to go to any length to prove herself.

6. Raven boys big Blue Sargent from The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater. She’s not kicking ass physically but verbally, and she has to being surrounded by boys with such strong personalities. There’s times I wonder how those boys got anything done before she came along.

5. reboot big Wren Connolly from Reboot – Amy Tintera. She was dead for 178 minutes before coming back to life, making her less emotional, less human, and left her with the ability to kick ass and heal fast.

4. hunger games big Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins. She volunteered for her sister. That was enough for me to love her forever, no matter what happened afterward.

3. girl of fire and thorns big Elisa from Girl of Fire and Thorns – Rae Carson. The growth she shows as character is fantastic and she starts off as a very likeable character and turns into an amazing character.

2. darkest minds Ruby from The Darkest Minds – Alexandra Bracken. This girl is going to do whatever it takes to stay alive. She’s going to protect her friends. She’s going to survive.

1. goodbye Lex from The Last Time We Say Goodbye – Rae Carson. Another contemporary character. She’s not kicking major ass but instead dealing with the death of her brother. What she goes through is something I don’t even want to imagine.

  1. I love Katniss too. She doesn’t want to be a hero, she just wants to protect her loved ones. That’s what made her make my list. 🙂

    Also, I love Blue from The Raven Boys— not sure how I forgot her!

    My TTT-

  2. I love Calaena, too! Haven’t read several of these and definitely need to.

  3. Amazing list! I am really looking forward to (but at the same time, dreading) reading The Last Time We Say Goodbye!

  4. I was just reading about Lex in a book review over at Paper Fury. It sounds like a really interesting book! And so sad…

  5. Katniss a must on my list too (if I had one!) I’d also include Miss Honey from Matilda and Hermoine as well as Tris from Divergent.
