The New Year’s Countdown: Favourite Female Leads of 2012

5) Axelia (What Kills Me by Wynne Channing)

She wasn’t weak willed when she was human and as a vampire she has the strength outside to match her insides. She’s so relatable that I’m amazed that she exists on the page.

4) Kami (Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan)

This sleuth has determination and the desire to seek out truth. Best part? She doesn’t need to be supernatural being to kick ass. Good old martial arts will do that. Kami has an unshakable personality and what right or wrong. I’d be glad to be half of who she is.

Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy, #1)

3) Tris (Divergent & Insurgent by Veronica Roth)

She built herself into a warrior and made difficult choices to survive. She does the right thing no matter what or who gets in her way. She’s unapologetic but also has the ability to be vulnerable which is why I love her as a female protagonist.

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)

2) Lena (Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver)

Believe it or not, I had no love for Lena in Delirium. She fell into a “type” that I saw many female characters of YA fall into which was the I’ve become stronger thanks to the mere act of loving of this guy. I’m so happy I read Pandemonium. Alex may have been the catalyst but Lena made herself a bad ass for HERSELF. Now she’s the one on top and I like that position a whole lot better.

Pandemonium (Delirium, #2)

1) Saba (Blood Red Road)

Oh Saba. What can I say? You are the ultimate female bad ass. Actually, she’s the ultimate bad ass period. I didn’t like her at first but her fierceness, unapologetic, take no prisoners attitude paired with her ability to literally KICK YOUR ASS? She KO’d this category and would probably eat Katniss for breakfast…probably Tris too…most definitely Lena…

Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1)
