biggest badasses

 Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey @ GingerReadsLainey and today's topic is Top 5 Biggest Badasses!

Hello and happy Wednesday, my friends! Today I'm bringing you another T5W and today's topic is all about badass characters. 
To me, badass is not just someone who kicks ass on action-packed books, but also in everyday life, whether that's fighting anxiety or standing up for themselves. This list was hard for me to write because I could literally write 5 characters from the Throne of Glass series (which is my favourite series, in case you didn't know). I decided I wasn't going to do that, though. Instead, I used only 2 ToG characters (I just had to, I'm sorry).

1. Celaena freaking Sardothien, from the Throne of Glass series
aka best character ever! She is so beautifully flawed, stubborn, cocky and such a kickass female protagonist. If you've never read this series, do yourself a favour and go read it.

2. Rowan Whitethorn, from the Throne of Glass series
Everyone knows Rowan is a badass beautiful male character (who happens to be a prince) that everyone is a bit sceptical of at first but then you can't help but love.

3. Katniss Everdeen, from The Hunger Games trilogy
I had to include Katniss because her character and this whole trilogy helped me so much during my miserable high school years. And let's face it, she is a freaking badass female character. Seeing this character later coming to life on the big screen was one of the main highlights of my life after I read this trilogy.

4. Alina Starkov, from The Grisha Trilogy
Alina Starkov - soldier, sun summoner, saint. Pretty much sums her up. Her character development is phenomenal. (Leigh Bardugo is a queen, a QUEEN!)

5. Samantha McAllister, from Every Last Word
I wanted to add Sam to this list because she's a very strong character. She might not be from a fantasy novel but she is super badass to me. She struggles with OCD and yet she tries to have a normal life while trying to work on her mental health. Sure, she has some ups and downs, but what matters is she keeps fighting so that she can stay in control.

What are your favourite badass characters? Let me know in the comments.


  1. I like your list! I totally forgot about Alina, she is definitely bad ass. I haven't heard of 'Every Last Word' but now I'm putting it on my "want to read" shelf.

    If you're interested here is my list for T5W.


    1. Thank you so much!! :) Every Last World had a really strong impact in my life so Sam is one of my favourite contemporary YA characters. Let me know if you liked the book once you read it :)

  2. CELAENA FREAKING SARDOTHIEN!!haha, she's my number one as well:D

    1. haha she's awesome, right?! The Throne of Glass series makes me so happy! :D
