Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Kick-Ass Heroines

Hello all- hoping this Tuesday finds the East Coasters dry, and if you are lucky, enjoying a day off with a good book.

We here at YAW & WS's love to participate in Top Ten Tuesdays, hosted by Breaking the Spine.  This week's TTT is Favorite Kick-Ass Heroines.  Check out our list of bad ass female leads that we have pulled together earlier this year.

This Top Ten Tuesday is a list of suggestions for those of you who like strong, kick-ass female characters! If you liked Graceling by Kristin Cashore, then these books are for you! (we know Katniss isn't on this list, but you already know she kicks butt)

Proof of leather jackets, handsome side-kicks
and excellent vision. Katniss, the prototype
of kick-ass heroines.
Further considerations on kick-ass heroines from Grad Student (since we are sitting on the couch together):
1. They are more fun than Bella Swan (YAWN) and usually have handsome side-kicks
2. None of them seem to worry about contact lenses. Color us jealous!
3. Cool leather jackets are the norm. LIKE.
4. They tend to know they are awesome. Please see Crazy Camper's love of Rose from Vampire Academy for proof.

In other news- CC and GS continue to live the dream in Grad Student's NYC apartment. Be safe, East Coast people!


  1. PS I clearly packed my library book in my "go bag" after the transformer down the street blew. Priorities people, priorities!

  2. hahahaha... no, none of them worry about contact lenses.... I'm rewriting a story that I hope has a kick ass heroine... and I'm totally tempted to give her contacts and make her lose one at the climax... HAHAHA.

  3. OMG You got rid of captcha! THANK YOU!

  4. HOW DID I FORGET KATNISS?!?! I am ashamed in myself right now.
