It’s time for another Top 5 Wednesday.
This week’s topic is Top 5 Biggest Badasses. Most of the time when I think of a badass, the image that comes to mind is a strong girl who is usually inside of a fantasy novel. But there are lots of different types of being badass. Strong girls and boys can all be badass so I’m sharing a little bit of everything.
SO let’s get started!
from the Throne of Glass Series
There was no way I could have a list of badasses without having Aelin on it. She’s is a fierce assassin as well as a tough girl in general. I love her personality and how she carries herself. But the reason she is number five is because I wish she wasn’t as stand offish as she is. You can be a badass while being sweet to people.
from the Wicked Lovely Series
Only male on this list but he’s necessary. Niall is tough and rough around the edges. He’s got a dark past and a sully disposition but he kicks ass when needed and I’m not just talking about physically. He’ll give you a real verbal lashing when its required and I just love his persona. More people need to read this series, seriously.
from the Parasol Protectorate Series
Alexia is the best ever! She’s an adult spinster but it does not slow her down at all. This isn’t a spoiler but in the first chapter of this book, she kills a vampire with her parasol. HOW BADASS IS THAT? And that’s just the beginning. In a world where werewolves and vampires roam free, she is the fiercest character in that series. READ IT!
from the Off-Campus Series
This is one of my recently favorite reads and the female main character is so kickass. Not in the literal way because this is contemporary. But she’s sassy and confident (most of the time) and knows what she wants (generally). I just really enjoyed her growth in this book and I feel like she’s the kind of woman we should aspire to be. Take charge of oneself style.
from the Study Trilogy and Soulfinder Trilogy
There is no one, absolutely not one character, that is more kickass than Yelena. She is fierce, strong, determined, great fighter and most of all extremely powerful. And the best thing about her is that all her badassaery is used to help benefit her friends, family and innocent people. She doesn’t kick ass just cause, she does it to save lives. I love her so very very much and there needs to be a bigger fandom for this series. Seriously.
So that’s it for my favorite badasses! Let me know what you think of my choices and what your favorite badasses are. Thanks so much for reading and see you on my next post
