Top Ten Tuesday (17)

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they will post a 'Top Ten List' for them and bloggers alike to answer and it's always a different list question to answer.

There is some music below for your enjoyment.

This week's Top Ten to answer is:

 Top Ten Favorite Kiss-Ass Heroines

1. Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy Series)
Of course I have to put down Rose as a kick-ass heroine. She has got to be my favorite heroine of all time. And she doesn't take shit from anyone. She is not only strong for herself, but she is also strong for the one's that she loves and would protect them at the cost of her own life which is almost does on more than one occasion. She takes down "evil" vampires like it's a walk in the park. Do us all a favor and stay on her good side.

2. Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games Series)
You better watch your backs around this lady her. Especially if she has a bow and arrow with her. If you have read the books or even just seen the movie you will know what I mean. This girl is lethal and she won't let anything or anyone stand in the way of protecting her family and friends. She started a rebellion with a simple hand gesture and words of kindness, imagine what she could do if she really applied herself.

3. Charlotte "Charley" Davidson (Charley Davidson Series)
She's not only a grim reaper. She is THE grim reaper. Private Eye and Solver of Unsolvable Cases. She also has the "affection" of one Reyes Farrow. She's sarcastic, witty and unstoppable when she puts her mind to something. Need I really say more?

4. Hermione Granger (Harry Potter Series)
She is the toughest witch of her age and she won't let anybody hurt the one's she loves. She is the mastermind behind practically everything that Harry, Ron & her ever did in that series. And without her and her undying friendship Harry and Ron would never have made it through the battles. She never once faltered, no matter how bad things got and that is something that not even the other kick-ass heroines can say for themselves. 

5. Raisa ana'Marianna (Seven Realms Series)
Talk about one of the cleverest woman I have had the fortune to read about in a series. This lady her tops them off. She's not only strong in times of peril, but she will allow absolutely NO one to tell her what to do or how to run her life. She has the strength and will power to protect her kingdom against those who would see to make it their own. But she also has a tender heart and tries to take care of all her subjects and donates her own money to fund a charity for those who have fallen on hard times. She stands up against powerful magicians, and even fights her way through sword fights. She is one lady who I would always want on my side turning a fight.

Ohhhh...... Okay, so.... When I first saw this top I thought it was going to be a simple one and easy to answer. But it turned out to be harder then I thought and I came to realize something. While there are quite a few heroine's from the series that I have read, there are VERY few heroines who I actually see as Kick-Ass. This is a tough list for the heroine's to make in my opinion because not a lot of author's make their female characters as strong as the 5 I have listed above. So I will only be making a Top 5 this week. Because these 5 in my opinion are the best of the best.

Who are your favorite Top Ten Kiss-Ass Heroine's?

@Marissa: Rose is my absolute FAVORITE heroine of all the books that I have read.

@Coffee Monster: This list was a lot harder for me then I thought it would be. I guess my Kiss-Ass heroine list is pretty short. LOL

@Mel: LOL, I do believe you are correct. But Hermione is a classic as well.

@Fara: Rose is amazing. =D

@Nina: I love that song, it's so catchy as well. And thank you, you should definitely check them out when you get the chance.

@Monica: I will. Thanks.

@Beth: Thank you.

@Shelver506: LOL... But it is the truth. While I loved The Hunger Games Series, I couldn't help but feel that for the entire series Katniss wasn't REALLY applying herself 100% to the cause. She was simply doing what needed to be done, but imagine if she believed in the cause whole-heartedly. This girl would of kick even more ass then she already kicked... LOL
