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.”


  1. Celaena TOTALLY wins the kick assery crown. OMG THAT GIRL IS AMAZING AND WONDERFUL. I love her. Although I cry because my ship isn't exactly working out. >.> Stiiiill. It's amazing. Cake and books and cutthroat glory. Also Code Name Verity is incredible. Here's my TTT!

  2. I love your choice for this week. Totally agree with Celaene in top spot - she is awesome!!
    my TTT

  3. I just finished Throne of Glass and I love Celaena. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. Thanks for sharing :)

    My TTT

  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!

  6. I've only read Throne of Glass and Vampire Academy, but I have to agree with those :D
    Thanks for stopping by my post earlier!
