Top Ten Tuesday #4: Top Ten Favourite Kick-Ass Heroines

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and it features top ten lists of various topics.

This is definitely my favourite TTT I've done up till now!

1. Alexandria Andros (Covenant) - Alex is one of my favourite heroines ever! She's an awesome fighter, and is in training to be a Sentinel, to fight daimons. She's incredibly strong, both physically and mentally, and also very stubborn.

2. Dru Anderson (Strange Angels) - I love Dru! She's so badass and strong-willed and tough, but at the same time really compassionate. She's also an amazing fighter. Her character grows a lot over the course of the series, and her experiences further strengthen her.

3. Ember Morrow (Nightshade Prequel) - Despite being a woman in the year 1404, Ember's dream is to join the Conatus, where she learns to fight with swords and magic. And she loves it! Ember develops incredible strength over the course of the book. 

4. Arya (Inheritance) - Arya is the princess of the elves in Ellesmera, but she certainly doesn't act like one. She wears pants, and is almost never seen in a dress. She's an amazing warrior, and there are very few people who can defeat her in battle.

5. Janelle Tenner (Unraveling) - Janelle Tenner, I fucking love you. Yes, that is a line from the book. Janelle is badass, smart, and hilarious. She's not afraid to stand up for herself and her friends, and she can definitely kick some ass!

6. Isabelle Lightwood (The Mortal Instruments) - Isabelle is one of my favourite characters in this series. She's a strong and proud Shadowhunter, one of the best. You don't want to mess with her!

7. Tris Prior (Divergent) - Tris doesn't start off as a strong or confident character, but as the novel goes on, she gains a lot of courage and strength. She learns to fight like her life depends on it (and it does), and ends up beating all the other Dauntless initiates.

8. Ismae (His Fair Assassin) - Ismae is a trained assassin, so of course she's very skilled. She's also pretty awesome, with a feisty personality and a heart of gold.

9. Rachel Adams (Defiance) - Rachel is yet another girl who has to hide who she is. She's headstrong, compassionate, and incredibly brave. And of course, skilled in sword-fighting.

10. Calla Tor (Nightshade) - Calla is the head of her werewolf pack. She's strong-willed, stubborn and very loyal - especially to her pack. She has amazing strength and confidence, and is also quite mature. She has huge decisions to make for her pack, and in my opinion she made all the right ones.


  1. You named a lot of heroins from books I have yet to read, but I totally agree on Tris! :)

  2. I squealed over Ismae and Rachel. They totally rock this category.
