Top Ten Tuesday #120

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

Top Ten Tuesday
This week is Top Ten 
So yeah, I have to pick my own list. And how could I not pick some kick-ass female characters? So read on below to find some of my faves.
  1. Izzy O’Neill from The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven
    I mean, it's Izzy. She's incredible. She goes through so much shit but is still standing and still fighting at the end of it.
  2. Xifeng from Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
    She is ruthless. She is an anti-hero. And I bloody love her for it.She is unashamedly dark and will take anyone who opposes her down.
  3. Minerva from Pirates! by Celia Rees
    Minerva has A Time Of It but Damn She's Amazing. She's smart and canny and unbelievably good as a person, all while swinging a cutlass and a pistol.
  4. Margot from Margot & Me by Juno Dawson
    As much as the book is about Fliss, it's was Margot who I loved to read the most. She was smart, sassy and ahead of her time.
  5. Vivian Carter from Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu
    Viv made my heart cry happy tears with her revolutionary take over of her school, standing up for what's right and bringing everyone together. 
  6. Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
    This is someone I struggled putting on here, because there are so many things that go wrong as the series progresses, but I love how Celaena is a deadly assassin who still likes to look pretty, eat sweets, and curl up in a ball when she has cramps
  7. Garai from Naondel by Maria Turtschaninoff
    I just love Garai, okay? All of the female characters in Naondel are amazing in their own way but Garai holds my heart.
  8. Sammy Jo from Gypsy Girl by Kathryn James
    A tough fighter who gets shit done. She has so much up against her but she does everything in her power to care for everyone around her and stand up to prejudice and bigotry.
  9. Amari from Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
    Amari is my queen, thanks. She takes a tough journey from Princess to saving magic and finding justice.
  10. Nona Grey from Red Sister by Mark Lawrence
    Nona is the stabby Hufflepuff I need in my life. She is more than just your standard Female Assassin, she's is a deeply layered character who is loyal AF.

What's your favourite kick-ass female character?


  1. Adding all of these to my tbr. I've only read TOG out of these.

  2. Great list,my personal favorite was always Kate from the Kate Daniels series and nowdays I also love Leda from the Legion of Angels series

  5. I love your choice of topic! I haven't read many of these other than Throne of Glass, but Children of Blood and Bone is currently on my TBR, so now I am even more excited to get round to it and meet Amari :)

    Oh, and I'd add Alosa (Daughter of the Pirate King) because sass and kick-ass. :D
