For this weeks #TuesdayTen, I will be listing my top 10 kick ass fictional heroines. Happy Tuesday everyone! I only base these lists on what I have read, so if you have any suggestions, let me know and comment below.
10. Sookie Stackhouse
(The Sookie Stackhouse Series)
Sure, she gets injured ... a lot in the book series, but the girl gets shit done, and doesn't hesitate to do whats right ... even if its not what is best for her.
9. Claire Fraser/Brianna MacKenzie
Claire is able to navigate life as a modern woman in the 1700's, risks her life to save her soulmate, tries to stop the battle of Culloden from happening, travels back in time to save her baby, and becomes a successful surgeon despite it being hard for a woman to do so, travels BACK to Jamie when she finds out he survived Culloden, and travels America with Jamie while he fights in the American Revolution. Brianna travels back in time to warn her parents what she found in a old newspaper, announcing their deaths by fire, in hopes of preventing it. By doing this, she ends up being brutally raped within days of marrying Roger, having a baby, shooting her rapist in the testicles, endures a kidnapping by her rapist, finds the strength to show mercy on him, travels back in time to save her daughters life, where she fights to protect her children from men who found out what her family can do. There is no denying this mother and daughter are a kick ass duo.
(Vampire Girl Series)
Ari willingly signs an oath to save her mothers soul and life, learns to make and use a sword, and willingly puts herself in dangerous situations to save her people, despite having enemies on both sides. In the end, she finds the strength to leave a peaceful and relaxing safe haven, to do whats right and save her new home, and the people in it.
7. Hermione Granger
(Harry Potter Series)
Her strength comes from her remarkable intelligence, her bravery, and loyalty. But she can obviously fight as well when she has to.
