Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
This weeks theme:Top Ten Books Which Feature Characters Who _____
I filled in this black originally with who kick major ass, but some of the characters I picked kick metaphorical ass with their intelligence. So I changed it to boss. Also realized all of the characters I picked are females, it was unintentional but I am really happy about it.
Rose - The Vampire Academy
Rose is my girl. She protects her best friend, kills all the strigoi, and looks great doing it.
She is an assassin. I think I can leave it at that.
Tris - The Divergent Series
She can't be controlled. She is dauntless, damn it.
Because she is the Apollyon and single handedly takes on gods. Just a normal a day at work.
Tella - The Fire & Flood Series
Because her compassion and her intelligence inspire others AND she has a/several pandora (aka pokemon).
Lia - The Remnant Chronicles
Because she can adapt. Over the first two books, she has grown so much that I forget that she was just a princess running away.
Feyre - A Court of Thorns and Roses Series
Because she is a survivor and fights for the ones she loves.
Micheline - Shutter
Micheline reminds me of Selene from Underworld. I envision a younger Kate Beckinsale, probably not representational of her physical attributes but I call the shots in my head, therefore ghost fighting baby Beckinsale/Micheline is amazing.
Hazel - Darkest Part of The Forest
She is a trained knight. BOSS METER THREW THE ROOF!
Mare - Red Queen Series
Mare is basically an X-Men. Dude, I want magical powers.
Kestrel - The Winner's Trilogy
She will outsmart everyone in this series. Intelligence is key.
Meira - Snow Like Ashes Series
Because she chooses to fight own battles and decides for herself who she wants to be.
