Top Ten Favorite Kick-Ass Heroines

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Top Ten Favorite Kick-Ass Heroines
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)
Hermione from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Ever since I read the Harry Potter books, I've sort of had a big fictional crush on her. Smart and awesome!
Twilight (Twilight, #1)
Alice from Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
Though don't get me started on Bella, I always though Alice was one badass chick. Plus she was one of the nice vampires and all.
Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)
Juliette from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Man, Juliette is cool. Plus she's straight out of X-men but less geeky!
Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1)
Cinder from Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Cinderella has always been depicted as a complete doormat who can't think for herself or take any courage to stand up to anybody, and I will never stop loving Marissa Meyer for making her totally the opposite!
Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)
Johanna from The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
Johanna doesn't take (pardon my French) shit from anybody and I love it. She'll take you down!
Reached (Matched, #3)
Cassia from The Matched Trilogy by Ally Condie
Cassia is my kind of girl. First she is all trusting of the society then she has a complete transformation. Love that in a character!
Of Poseidon (Of Poseidon, #1)
Emma from Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Few people can kick your ass and say "Oh, my sweet goodness" at the same time. Hardcore. 
Struck (Struck, #1)
Mia from Struck by Jennifer Bosworth
A girl who's been struck by lightning a bunch of times and survived  does not sound like the kind of girl you want to cross!
Insurgent (Divergent, #2)
Tris from The Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth
Simply dauntless.
The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)
Katniss from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Katniss, The queen of badass.


  1. I love that you included Alice! She doesn't get enough credit! Great list.

  2. Awesome list! I have a few of the books you mentioned on my reading list - but of the ones I've read, I loved Katniss & Cinder!

  3. "Simply Dauntless"!! YES, AGREE ;) Awesome list!! <3 <3

  4. NICE list! Loved seeing Hermoine right at the top and I loved seeing Cassia, Alice, Tris and Katniss as well :) Thanks for sharing! Old follower, here's my TTT

    Micheline @ Lunar Rainbows

  5. I really NEED to read Cinder. Must get on that. Also Shatter Me looks/sounds interesting. :)

  6. Katniss and Tris are my favourites too! Great picks! ^^

  7. Def Katniss! Love this post!! I haven't read some of those so I def need to check them out!!!

  8. Love all these picks. Well, except Cinder since I haven't read it yet...but still. Katniss IS the queen of badass. And I love that you picked Alice! I never would have expected that from you, Benji.

    Just a Booklover

  9. Love that you put Cinder! I really need to buy that book. Also, yay for Johanna! I mean, come on, she was even tougher in the last book too.

    My TTT:

  10. Awesome list! Katniss is very kick ass

  11. Great list! I've read most of them but for the ones I haven't read (like Cinder) it makes me want to read them more because I love kick ass heroines.
