T5T: bad ass females

Hello, lovely readers and welcome to Top 5 Tuesday!
It’s hosted by Bionic Book Worm and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
So here we go with 5 super bad ass female characters!

#1 – Hermione Granger:

Hermione is one of my all-time favorite characters and by far my most beloved on in the Harry Potter universe. She’s smart, she’s kind, she never backs down. What I love most about her is her drive to learn something new, to discover knowledge.

#2 – Daenerys Targaryen:

No list of bad ass female characters would be complete without Dany from the A Song of Ice and Fire series. She’s the First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Protector of the Realm, Lady Regent of the Seven Kingdoms, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons.
She’s not afraid of anything. And she won’t stop at anything to reach her goals.

#3 – Scarlet Benoit:

Those of you who read the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer will cherish this character just as much as I do.
The books are inspired by fairy tales and Scarlet’s story is inspired by Red Riding Hood.
She certainly is like Red Riding Hood, if you look at Roald Dahl’s interpretation of the story. A bad ass chick who fights like hell and can even take a wolf down without so much as flinching.

#4 – Feyre Archeron:

Feyre and I had some initial trouble. I didn’t particularly care for the first book in the ACOTAR series (extensive reviews on those books coming up soon!) and didn’t like her either. However, once I picked up the second book I was hooked. Sarah J. Maas outdid herself with writing Feyre.
She’s battling monsters. Not just those you can see, but more importantly those inside of her. She’s so much stronger than you’d expect and her character development is brilliant.
Well, all of the female characters in the ACOTAR series are absolutely bad ass, but I had to pick one 😉

#5 – Celaena Sardothien:

After I had a huge book hangover when I finished the ACOTAR series, I immediately picked up Throne of Glass, the first novel in another series by the same author. Sarah J. Maas tells the tale of Celaena, who is a cold-blooded assassin (and maybe something more…). I just love how she outwits all the guys and sends their asses packing!

  1. Nice list! I need to give Lunar Chronicles another try. I read it years Cinder years ago and thought it was only ok; I didn’t read the rest. So many people love it, though, I’m starting to think I was just in a funk when I read it.
