Top Ten Kick-Ass Heroines in YA

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

1.  Katniss from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – I don’t need to explain this one, do I?

2.  Meghan from The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa  - You know this is one of my favorite series ever!  Both Ash and Meghan are amazing.  Let me just say that I probably would have died in the Nevernever on day one.

3.  Hermione from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling – I love both Harry and Ron, but the truth is that they would have never survived without Hermione.  She is the brains of the trio.

4.  Ellie from Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton – Fighting demons and her attraction to Will can’t be easy!

5.  Kaylee from the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent – This girl has spunk!  She has seen and fight a lot of weird stuff and she keeps going strong!

6.  Celaena from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – This is one of my favorite characters ever.  If you haven’t read this book, please give a try.

7.  Ismae from Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers – A girl that was sired by death itself and trained to be an assassin, I hope that you don’t need a further explanation.

8.  Riley from The Demon Trapper’s series by Jana Oliver – She’s a demon trapper. Really.

9.  Saba from Blood Red Road by Moira Young  - Saba turned out to be one of the most violent female characters that I’ve read (in YA) for a while.  She kicks everyone’s ass!

10. Finley from The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross - She is fearless, super strong and loyal; a great combination is you ask me :)

What's in your Top Ten this week?


  1. Great list! I definitely agree with Celaena & Katniss :)

    Here my Top 10

  2. Love your list! A lot of them are also on my list! (and the others I haven't read yet, so...). It's so great a lot of people put Hermoine on their list! She's totally kick-ass!

    My TTT

  3. We have a couple of similar picks! I'm excited to see Riley on your list, she made mine too. I knew from the first few chapters of the first book that she'd be a favourite of mine. Great list!

  4. I too share your pick of Hermione and Katniss - those seem to be top picks for a lot of people.

    Plus you have some new ones I haven't heard of yet - always cool!
