Top Ten Tuesday #31

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

This week is Top Ten Books Which Feature Characters Who... Totally Kick Ass.

What a hard decision to make! So I decided to pick characters who totally kick ass. The ones that I read about and who are so incredibly strong in so many ways that I just want to be them. Please. Only lets not have the bad things happen to me, I'm really a delicate Rhopalocera Bibliophilia. Ahem.

So keep an eye out for familiar faces because I can't get enough of kick-ass characters so they, and the books in which they feature, tend to pop up on my TTT lists quite often.

  • Lockwood & Co by Jonathan Stroud
  • Slated by Teri Terry
  • Stalking Sappire by Mia Thompson
  • Shades of London by Maureen Johnson
  • Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
  • The Black Magician's Trilogy by Trudi Canavan
  • Bruce and Bennett by Valerie Laws
  • Pirates! by Celia Rees
  • Vampire Academy by Rachelle Mead
  • The Parasol Protectorate by Gail Carriger
And in the place of honour as my favourite and most kick-ass character EVER?

Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas


  

“You could rattle the stars," she whispered. "You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”

  4. I love your topic so much! Celaena totally kicks ass! Can't imagine anyone else deserving the top spot. I agree with Vampire Acamdemy as well! Rose was just epic. I haven't read any of the other ones you mentioned (I'm so bad) but I really want to read Code Name Verity!

  5. LOL -- Kick a$$ heroes are fun. I especially love it when a heroine is not just physically tough, but also mentally and emotionally fierce.

    Happy TTT!
