  1. My favorite kick butt character is Alex from Jennifer L Armentrout's Covenant series. She doesn't take nothing off of no one even when she faces some pretty BAD consequences. Love her snarky comments too! The girl rocks for sure.

  2. I really like Sophie from the Hex Hall series. She can fight well with magic, so she is pretty kick-ass. I love that series, and just finished the last book in the trilogy! She is very brave!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I love Alex from Half Blood! She's such an awesome fighter, but still has lots to learn. Plus, she pushes through anything that comes her way! :-D

    ReplyDelete
  4. I really liked Katsa from Graceling. She had awesome powers and knew how to use them! I loved her fights with Po. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I really admire Rose Hathaway's kick-butt attitude in the Vampire Academy. She's so strong and loyal, and such an awesome fighter! I really hope she makes more appearances in the Bloodlines series! Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. Nice list. So many choices. Let's see, if I win I'll either go with 1. Demon Princess #1 because I remember you gushing about this series so it must be good or 2. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer because it's a shifter book and I love those plus I've heard a lot of good things about it or 3. The Soul Screamers Volume because I love that series and I don't own hard copies of the books (yet). So which to choose if I win, of course?

    I also loved the Vampire Academy series. I wish I could read that series for the first time again. I think it was the ultimate book experience. LOL. And I think Rose is my favorite kick butt character.

  9. Mercy Thompson is my favorite kiss-ass heroine!

    Thank you for a great giveaway: so many wonderful books to choose from!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love Jennifer Estep's Gin Blanco - she's one tough lady, can kick the butt of numerous large and/or deadly elemental magic users, but has a soft gooey center when it comes to helping someone in trouble - and she's a hell of a cook.

    ReplyDelete
  11. It's actually Katniss from the Hunger Games- she's so coragous and goes through so much.
    You already know of her, so Tris from Divergent is no.2.

    ReplyDelete

  15. My favourite kick-butt character? Catherine 'Cat' Crawfield from Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress Series. She literally kicks butt for a living and she has a lovable snarky humour. And she's in a relationship with Bones :) (Bish his mine!)

    ReplyDelete

    I love Alona Dare from The Ghost and the Goth. She has problems, she's dead, but she still gets all the ghosts to behave and helps Will escape being committed and she helps him accept who he is.

    Thanks for the giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. My favourite this year is June from Legend. She's so fricking awesome, and I love that Day is equally as awesome. They both could kick ass on their own terms, and neither *needed* the other person if they were in danger. They were both quick to think of an alternative and get rid of obstacles.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Grayfriar from The Greyfriar was amazing, so… That’s it :D Maybe not my favourite-favourite, but I can think only of it right now.
    He was so... Different. I expected everything, but not what turned out. And he was an amazing fighter :>

    ReplyDelete
  33. My favourite kick-butt character Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy series. She makes me laugh, cry, and isn’t afraid to do or say what she thinks is right. She is protective and will do what ever it takes to make sure her friends don't get hurt.
    Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  34. My favourite Kick-butt character is Anita Blake from Vampire Hunter.
    Thank you for a great giveaway!

    Very cool giveaway. *Hoping that I win*

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think my favorite is Annelise Drew from Veronica Wolff's The Watchers series. She's intelligent and because she's thrust into a survive or die situation, she quickly learns to become tough, cunning, and kick-butt while maintaining a great snarky attitude!

    Awesome giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Awesome giveaway! I can't believe you so generously want to give that many great books!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Wade from Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is a great kick butt character. He's on a dangerous mission to find a treasure and still is able to help his friends a long the way. It's a futuristic dystopian novel with a lot of pop culture and gaming references from the 1980s. It's a fun read.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  65. My favorite kick butt character has to be Mercy Thompson from the Mercy Thompson series by Patrician Briggs. She's gone through one of the worst things that could possibly happen to a woman and did not let it bring her down. She fought her way through and kept going on with her life. She is definitely very kick butt.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Cinder from Cinder by Marissa Meyer. She's a cyborg with an evil stepmother and stepsister who blamer her for the death of her other sister. Despite this, she and a doctor work secretly trying to find a cure with her blood. And no matter what, she doesn't let her stepmother break her. :D

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  68. Thank you for the giveaway!
    I was about to say Katniss but then I thought that you would like to know about other books to read,so, my choice is Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. I don't know if you've read the series but I really liked it, especially the second book. Will is awesome! I love him! From the first moment you are forced to think that he's a jerk (xD) but then when you can understand what secret he was keeping, you understand how strong he was for all his childhood and how incredibly sweet he could be.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I love Rachel Morgan from the Hollow series by Kim Harrison - although she knows she can be flawed, she is fiercely loyal and genuinely cares about doing the right thing. Also, she is a witch/demon who has now embraced her demon side and protects people with black and white magic, even those who don't appreciate her.

    Thanks!
    Leanne

    ReplyDelete
  75. I vacillate between Dory from Karen Chance's Dory Baserab series and Mercy from Patrica Brigg's Mercy Thompson series. Both gals just seem to find trouble where ever they go and have family troubles to boot. I love seeing them just take what life throws at them and make the best of it.

    Thanks for participating in the hop and for the giveaway opportunity.

  80. I love Zoey Redbird from the House of Night cause she's awesome... She's always fighting Neferet, the most evil High Priestess... And she's also chosen by Nyx for some reason or another... What I like about the book is how it was written... It's like a TV series... The timeline of a book will be continued on to the next book... I really LOVE paranormal books!!! Thank you for the giveaway!!!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Right now, me, with a bazillion other people, are completely FANATIC about Katniss from the Hunger Games. I also like Kat from the Heist Society series. =)Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Well, I just started Blood Red Road and even though I am only half way through, I just know that Saba can definitely be on this list for kick-butt characters. What I love most about her is that she's strong. She gets thrown into these situations that she can't do anything about and she waits it out until she can do something about it and when she does, you better watch out, because she goes full force.

    Love this book and thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I love Secret McQueen. The series is Secret McQueen and the author is Sierra Dean. Definitely adult. She is half vampire half werewolf and she works for the vampire council as an assassin. Very complex, very entertaining, and you never know what is going to happen next. Love it!

    Kendra

    ReplyDelete
  84. I love Mercy Thompson :) She's a shapeshifter who is listened to by the Alpha werewolf that lives next door to her. She also had a lot of bad stuff happen to her and her family/friends and she's still fought her way through it (*coughlotsofrandomcreepythingstryingtokillhercoughcough*)

    ReplyDelete
  85. Saba from Blood Red Road! She can fight and fend for herself. Yes at first shes a little hardcore but she learns and really grows as a character! I cant wait for the 2nd book. :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. I love Riley from the Demon Trappers series, she's a total badass and after everything that happens to her she keeps it together and she traps demons, that takes a lot courage and skill.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I love Chloe Saunders from The Darkest Powers Series by Kelley Armstrong! She might a be a Damsel in Distress in the beginning but she really matures and becomes strong and powerful! (She can raise and talk to the dead) (:

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  90. I know you already put her, but honestly the most kick-butt character to me is Katniss from The Hunger Games. She just blows every other character out of the water. She is just amazing and a great roll model characters for girls.

  102. I have quite a few favorite kick-butt characters, but one I will discuss that is for adults is India Black. She is a madam and an espionage expert. She kicks butt and takes names! Check her out, the author is Carol Carr and it is a series.

    ReplyDelete
  103. So many favorites but lately I think Blayne from Beasts Behaving Badly by Shelley Laurenston. She is all over the map but a true kick butt character when forced in a corner.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I love Rose from The vampire academy series, she is truly a kick butt heroine. She is so strong and courageous. You HAVE to read it, if you already haven't.

    It's in the ya genre about fantasy

  110. I'm going to go with Lyra Belacqua for the YA/MG spectrum because she was just so tough in His Dark Materials and never gave up. As for an adult literary character, it is Roland Deschain from The Dark Tower series. I mean, he's the gunslinger!

    ReplyDelete
  111. The Brothers!!! from The Black Dagger Brotherhood because they´re totally badass, the defenders of their race.
    My personal fave is John Matthew!

    ReplyDelete
  113. The entire character cast in Lord of the Rings is pretty kick-butt! (:

  120. I totally love Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy. She's the most bad-ass character of all.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I really like Loki from the Trylle series of Amanda Hocking. Yes he works for the bad guy, but he's very different from them. I can't wait to see where it goes in Ascend.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Any genre's fine, but I love Katsa from Graceling!:)

    ReplyDelete
  123. Meghan from The Iron Fey series. i don't know how to explain, but she's a super kick-butt character!

    ReplyDelete
  124. My favorite kick-butt character has always been Phedre from the Kushiel's Legacy series by Jacqueline Carey (very adult). She goes to the ends of the earth to save those she loves, sacrificing herself again and again.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Katniss from the Hunger Games kicks some major butt! She did awesome in the movie too!

    ReplyDelete
  126. I love Four from Divergent! I know it's not much of a series yet with the second in the trilogy only coming out in May, BUT, he is simply an incredible character. He carries a lot around with him, and it feels like you need a shovel to really get into his character and I just love that. He keeps a lot of himself inside and only shows who he feels he needs to be. I love it. And, of course, the Divergent book itself is absolutely AMAZING. I cannot describe my love for it into words!! It's so adventurous and thrilling and fast-paced and page-turning and real!! :D

    Faye (:

    ReplyDelete
  127. Ooh definitely Deznee from Touch by Jus Accardo! She's strong, can fight, hold her own, not whiney, actually has her own superpower, and just completely badass!

    ReplyDelete
  128. I love Mercy from Patrica Briggs series. She kicks butt but she's just a great person in general and down to earth.

    ReplyDelete
  129. My favorite character is Rose from Vampire Academy. I think she is bossy sometimes but I love how strong she is and the way she is always available to protect the others.

  131. I love Katniss, but one of my favorites is Melanie/Wanderer from The Host. Melanie, because she is such a survivor, and Wanderer because she isn't afraid to love and experience human emotions. Together Melanie/Wanderer are an awesome duo. I'm so excited for the movie to come out next year, and for Stephenie Meyer to write the rest of the series!

  137. I think right now my favorite kick-butt character is Katniss Everdeen. She is amazing, powerful AKKKH perfect! I LOVE HUNGER GAMES

  138. I agree with the above poster about Katniss Everdeen being my favorite kick-butt character. She actually takes charge and does things -- doesn't let things be done to her!

  140. I'm in a Hunger Games mood lately, so I'll go with Katniss. She's strong, resilient, and empowering.

  141. I love Hermione Granger from Harry Potter and Cammie Morgan from the Gallagher Girl series. Both girls are intelligent and know how and when to take action. Cam's a lot more reckless than Hermione, but whatever the method, when there's something that needs to be done, both are on the case.

  143. Since I already have the first book of The Hunger Games, I can't have the 2nd book in english. - It'll get kinda confusing. dx But I do love Katniss. She's so cool! (: One of the strongest woman character I've ever seen in a book!
    But if I win, I would choose the one about the girl Cammie! I loooove spy books! o:

  144. I love Tris from Divergent, she's so brave! :D (so excited for Insurgent to come out)

  145. I love Katniss from the Hunger Games because no matter what, they cannot change who she is. That takes some real strength in character!

  146. Megan Chase from the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa is AMAZING. In the first 2 books she is a little annoying at first, but she grows and matures as a character, and she is just SO AWESOME. Love her!
    Those books are also some of my ALL TIME favorites :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  156. Favorite Kick butt heroine.... Rose from the Vampire Academy is number one and then Katniss from the Hunger Games. And from the adult section I love Cat from the Night Huntress series. All three of them are unique in their own way and they fight for what they believe in.

  172. Have you tried reading the Seven Kingdoms series by Kristin Cashore. The female protagonists there in the series are always really likeable and strong. :) I especially like Katsa in Graceling. The 3rd/last book Bitterblue is coming out this May, I think? So you'd definitely have the time to catch up!

    Thanks for this fabulous giveaway. I really love Cammie in the GG series. :D

    He is an Alpha Male..and he absolutely satisfies all the alpha male characters and some more ;)

    Thanks for the international giveaway!!

  176. I love Katniss from Hunger Games because while she doesn't let a lot of people in, those she cares about, she does completely, so much that she would put herself in harm's way to save them. She doesn't give up, even when a part of her wants to, and she just keeps going no matter what.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Right now I have to go with Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games. Although I've not have the chance to read Mockingjay yet, it's just a great series of books and Katniss is such a strong character.

    Thank you for the giveaway and the amazing selection of books.
