Top 10 Kick-*@$! Heroines

Top Ten Tuesday
Top 10 Kick-*@$! Heroines


I realize that "kick-*@$!" could just mean a super awesome heroine, but there's nothing quite like a female character with mad skills or fierce courage.  Even though I don't interject myself into stories as I read, I always totally want to be down in the dirt kicking some butt.  Grant it, the poor heroines usually find themselves in some pretty unfortunate situations,  but their super cool fighting skills and brains always get them through in the end.  Love it!  Here are ten of my favorite kick-*@$! heroines:

1) Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games)A bow-wielding powerhouse.

2) Celaena Sardothien (Throne of Glass)
Female assassin?  Yes, please.

3) Elvie Nara (Mothership)
Teenage pregnancy? Aliens? Bring it on!

4) Finley Jayne (The Girl in the Steel Corset)
One wickedly fun bad side.
 
5) Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)
Brains and bronze.
 
6) Valkyrie Cain (Skulduggery Pleasant)
Small but mighty.
7) Puck Connolly (The Scorpio Races)
Carnivorous horses?  Nerves of steel. 

8) Thursday Next (The Eyre Affair)
Perseverance should be her middle name.

9) Tris Prior (Divergent)
Going against the norm is never easy (to say the least).

10) Alexia Tarabotti (Soulless)
Tough, stubborn, smart, and carries a mean parasol.
