Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favorite Kick-Ass Heroines

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. I heart lists!

This week's list is Top Ten Favorite Kick-Ass Heroines!

Tatiana from The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons - after surviving the siege of Leningrad, she sets off to find her true love, Alexander through war torn Eastern Europe - what's not heroic about that?

Ellie from Tomorrow, When the War Began by John Marsden - when Australia is invaded by an unknown enemy, Ellie gathers up her friends and fights back against the invaders.

Dez from Dead of Night by Jonathan Maberry - the ultimate damaged heroine, she's a bad-ass zombie killer.

Allie from The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa - she's no vegetarian vampire.  

Ripley from Hollowland by Amanda Hocking - a zombie killing lioness?  Yep, she's definitely a heroine.  Hey, no one said heroines have to be human!

Hartley from Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday - just because she made me laugh so hard.

Katie from The First Days by Rhiannon Frater - I love her - what more can I say?

Amaliya from Pretty When She Dies by Rhiannon Frater - Yeah!  Another proper vampire, and one with more than a  few issues, but a heart of gold.

Katniss from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - need I say more?

Jenny from Jenny Pox by J.L. Bryan - bullied, isolated and toxic, Jenny is my favorite paranomal heroine.

Who is your favourite book heroine?


  1. Oh, I loved Hartley! She was hilarious and brave! Fabulous choice!

  2. Jenny Pox! Woohoo. I have her on the list too. She's awesome. ;)
