Top Ten Tuesday: Books Which Feature Badass Heroines

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they provide a topic, and you choose ten books that answer that topic. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books Which Feature Characters  Who Are ___.  For this week I chose books that feature badass heroines.  As a female myself, I love books that have heroines who totally can kick ass/handle their own and not be the damsel in distress.

1) Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games

She is badass through and through.  I mean come on she is amazing with her and bow and arrow! Plus she starts a damn rebellion without even trying.

2) Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series

You don’t have to be physically strong to be badass.  Hermione kicks ass with her mind.  Without her, Harry would probably wouldn’t know what to do.  Though, I do love the fact that she did punch Malfoy in the movie.

3) June Iparis from Legend series 

She’s a prodigy and definitely knows how to fight. I wouldn’t mess with her.

4) Tris from Divergent series 

Well she is Divergent, right?  You can’t control her.

5) Fa Mulan from Mulan

Need I say more?  She is badass all the way.

6) Buffy from the Buffy The Vampire Slayer

I wouldn’t mess with her either.

7) Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles

She’s just badass along with the other female characters in the book.  Though, I chose her because she is the main heroine.
