Top Ten Tuesday: Freebie

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish

This week was a freebie week which means that I got to pick a top ten to post about. Since I seek out books with a lot of action, some romance, and a heroine that doesn't take crap from anyone I thought I'd focus on some of my favorite tough as nails girls. These books feature characters to look up to.

Top Ten Books with brilliantly tough leading ladies!

*all are pretty much YA titles except the Darkhouse series, which I love. It is an adult series and Perry is one of those main characters that I have grown to absolutely love. I recommend this series to those 17+.


  1. This is such a cool list idea! I haven't really read any of these (other than The Hunger Games) though.
    My TTT

  2. Can you believe I still haven't read The Hunger Games? FAIL! I own them, but I haven't read them. EEK!!!
    Oh and CAROLE!! I nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award because you're awesome! Check it out here: http://wp.me/p3Aan3-6o

  3. Hardcore chicks are my favorite kind of characters. The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman is chock full of touch girlies who know how to make their way in a world that is not always kind to women. I'll definitely have to give some of the ones on your list a try!
