TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Hello lovelies. Today I'm here with my list of my top ten badass heroines. I chose 'badass heroines' instead of YA or Fantasy heroines because I wish I'd be more badass and I like to think so that I'd have the inner strenght in a risky situation (which I would totally not but hey a girl can dream, right?).
This week I chose to paste in quotes from these characters instead of telling you why I chose them. I love all these characters and these are my favorite quotes from them so I hope you'll enjoy this post.
10. Lila Zacharov from The Curse Workers trilogy
“Don’t.” She (Lila) looks directly into my eyes. After a month of being forced to avoid her, I feel stripped bare by her gaze. “You can be as much of a charming bastard as you want, but you’re never going to bullshit your way into my heart again.”
9. Anita Blake from Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series
“Never trust people who smile constantly. They're either selling something or not very bright.”
“Stupidity isn't punishable by death. If it was, there would be a hell of a population drop.”
8. Jubilee from This Shattered World (Starbound #2)
“And what does Jubilee Chase want to do with her life, if she’s not hunting down rebel leaders and skinning them alive?”
“I don’t know. Something extremely boring. I could go to night school and learn dentistry.”
That makes him laugh, a quick burst of a chuckle that makes my own lips curve.
“Oh, God no. No way could you be a dentist.”
“I could! I’d be a damn good dentist.”
7. Jess from 1-800-Where-R-You series
“Who-who are you?" Seth asked, hesitantly."Wh-what do you want?" How else was was I supposed to reply? The words were out of my mouth before I could stop them.I mean, I'd only seen the movie like seventeen times.
"I'm Luke Skywalker," I said. "I'm here to rescue you.”
6. Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy
“What the hell?" I asked. Is this daring escape being sponsored by Honda?”
“And I thought the whole point of my education was that violence IS the answer.”
5. Annabeth Chase from Percy Jackson and the Olympians
“I've been waiting a long time for a quest, seaweed brain," she said. "Athena is no fan of Poseidon, but if you're going to save the world, I'm the best person to keep you from messing up.”
And she was only twelve then. Twelve.
4. Belle Jamison from The Tales of an Extraordinary Girl series
“So I’d tasered my boyfriend. Other girls have done worse. I felt bad, really, but I wasn’t going to beat myself up over it.”
3. MacKayla Lane from The Fever series
“Have you been in a fight? No, let me guess; you saved a wounded dog, again?” I said dryly. That was the excuse he’d used last time.
“I had a nosebleed.”
“Nosebleed, my petunia.”
“Ass, Barrons. As in you are one.”
2. Caroline 'Merit' Merit from Chicagoland Vampires
“I'm really about as good at relaitionships as I am at being a vampire. I'm kind of a smart but surprisingly inept kind of girl.”
“I frowned with disappointment. I’m not sure what I’d expected to see, although a short, dark-haired man standing beneath a floating neon arrow that read BAD GUY HERE would have been nice. A suspect and quick confession wouldn’t have been amiss, either. This was a lot harder than in the movies.”
1. Cat Crawfield from The Night Huntress series
“Life’s a bitch and then one stabs you.”
So that was all for today. I hope we have some common favorites or, better yet, you found a book that you're interested in reading. Don't forget to share with me who are YOUR favorite badass heroines! Leave me a link to your list and I'll gladly check it out.
