Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created bThe Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books
(in no particular order)

Darla from Sunrise (Ashfall #3) by Mike Mullin : Darla is a resourceful girl that its doing everything he can to survive in a post-apocalyptic world.
Wren from Rebel (Reboot #2) by Amy Tintera : Is a kick-butt heroine, she´s the strongest and fastest of the reboots.
Allison from The Forever Song (Blood of Eden #3) by Julie Kagawa : She´s a vampire with human feelings in a world where vampires are the bad guys, she can kick-butt and I like that her weapon of choice is a katana.

Iolanthe from The Perilous Sea (The Elemental Trilogy #2) by Sherry Thomas : Iolanthe is a powerful elemental mage she can control fire, water, air and earth,
Elisa from The Bitter Kingdom (Fire and Thorns #3) by Rae Carson : Elisa is the bearer of the Godstone (a magic stone) and can do defensive magic with it, but she doesn´t rely only on the magic of the stone, she also learns to fight with daggers and self-defense.

There are a lot of great kick-butt heroines in YA dystopian, urban fantasy and epic fantasy novels but these are my favorites from the recent years. I also like Katniss from the Hunger Games and Rose from Vampire Academy, but I read those books ages ago.

Kate from Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1) by Ilona Andrews : She´s a mercenary and can kick-butt, her weapon of choice is a sword.
Merit from Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires #1) by Chloe Neill : Another great heroine, she´s a vampire and her weapon of choice is some kind of sword.
Jessica from Full Blooded (Jessica McClain #1) by Amanda Carlson : She´s the only female werewolf in the world, she´s powerful but she´s still learning her powers.

Elena from Bitten (Women of the Otherworld #1) by Kelley Armstrong : Elena is also the only female werewolf, she´s strong, smart and fast.
Savannah from Spell Bound (Women of the Otherworld #12) by Kelley Armstrong : Savannah is a powerful witch that relies a lot on her magic, but she´s a relly good character.

There are also awesome heroines in Adult novels but I haven´t read a lot of them recently. I need to read more Adult books. I also like Mac from the Fever series.

  1. Our only common heroine is Wren. She's awesome. I really want to read Ashfall, I've seen Darla on quite a few lists. I actually haven't read the rest of the books you listed, but I want to read all of them. Great list!
