Super Six Sunday is a book meme hosted at Bewitched Bookworms.
This week the prompt is Super Six Bookish Kick-Ass Heroines! There are so many I can think of, but I'm being limited to six. :)
Harry Potter Series
She's a smart, quick-witted, cunning girl who's the star of my favorite book series. What's not to love? Harry and Ron would have gotten nowhere without her, and she stuck by their side throughout all seven books. She's definitely not sensitive, and contributes a tough love towards the two boys--and, eventually, love for Ron--that the series would be lost without.
Clary is definitely up there on the list. She takes the fact that she's a Shadowhunter in stride, and knows exactly what she's doing. Despite the fact that she's at a disadvantage, Clary is tough and eventually figures everything out. She also knows who she is--there's never a question about what side she's on or where she stands.
It's true that she's not exactly the weapon type of girl, but Lena is one persuasive girl. She has good ideas and is good at communicating them to the rest of her friends. Though she doesn't quite know where she stands--who does in a love triangle?--she makes what I think is a good choice in the end.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy
Karou is not afraid to get what she wants, and will stop at nothing to retrieve it. She is a fast and excellent fighter, and has a deep love for her friends and family. I've only read the first one in this series but am anxious to get to the second.
Maximum Ride Series
Max is a natural born leader. She easily plays mother to Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gazzy, and Angel, and yet still manages to fight off all of the challenges thrown her way. I love the fact that her leadership does not ruin the relationships she has with her friends and family.
Shatter Me Trilogy
Juliette knows how strong she is with her lethal touch, but doesn't use it to manipulate anyone she loves. She is strong, hard-working, and loving, even though she herself is a weapon. I'm anxiously awaiting the final book and hope she makes the right choices. (*whispers* Team Adam!)
I'll (hopefully) be posting a review for The Book of Broken Hearts soon! :)
