Ah, I'm such a sucker for a kick-ass heroine! They're usually my favorite kind of protagonist, so this was a pretty easy list to come up with, so here they are (in no particular order):
My Top 10 Favorite Kick-Ass Heroines
1. Well, first, let's get the obligatory Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games mention. Because, well, she's Katniss freaking Everdeen.
2. And then, of course, there's Rose Hathaway from The Vampire Academy who can kick some major strigoi butt while making sassy remarks as she does so.
3. My third choice might be a little obscure, but Isabeau/Evanjalin from The Lumatere Chronicles is the kind of princess who could shoot arrows and hunt wolves when she was just a kid. The girl is tough as nails.
4. Now let's not forget Katsa from Graceling. I'm pretty sure there's no fictional male out there who's a match for that girl. If so, I would pay really good money to see that fight.
5. Following suit, we have Fire from Graceling's companion novel, Fire. Not only can she kick butt with a bow and arrow, but she's also a super strong character emotionally and mentally.
6. Cinder, from Marissa Meyer's Cinder, just has to make my list too because I dare you to tell me she's not the toughest, most awesome Cinderella in the history of retellings.
8. Of course I need to have my favorite female shadowhunter on this list too! Isabelle Lightwood, from The Mortal Instruments, who can kick demon butt in high heels--"nothing less than seven inches."
9. Most of you probably haven't hear of Aphra from Death by Bikini, but you should definitely pick up this series. Aphra is an awesome heroine and believe me, she kick some major bad guy derriere!
10. You didn't think I was going to forget about Tris from Divergent did you? If you've read Divergent, then you obviously know why she's on this list.
So there's my list, leave me a link in the comments because I'd love to check out yours! :)
