Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010. Click on their link if you want to learn more about it !
This week it was : Ten Books Every X Should Read (up to you! Examples: every history nerd, memoir lover, ballet lover, feminist, college student, etc etc.)
I chose Buffy The Vampire Slayer as theme. It was and still is my favorite TV show. Buffy is that badass and witty heroin. She also has an amazing posse, the scooby-gang.
If you liked the TV show, here are ten books you should read.
In no particular order :
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Rose is such a badass character. She reminds me A LOT of Buffy.
She is strong, fierce, and knows how to fight. She also can count on her friends. The whole series is really great.
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
Yes it’s another Richelle Mead’s series. In fact it’s the Vampire Academy’s spin off. Sydney Sage isn’t really a badass at the beginning of this series, but she learns to be one. She is smart, fierce, brilliant and cares for the others. Her posse is one of my fav.
Daughter Of Smoke And Bone by Laini Taylor
Karou from The Daughter Of Smoke And Bone trilogy is another amazing woman. She fights for what she believes is right, no matter how hard the situation can be for her.
And her best friend is just amazing.
Throne Of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Celeana Sardothien is a hell of a badass character. She is deadly. I’ve only read ToG and CoM and will reread then soon so I can get to Heir Of Fire and The Assassin’s Blade.
She also can count on her “friends”.
Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead
I know ! Another Richelle Mead’s series haha ! This was the first series from her that I’ve read. And it’s not my fault, she knows how to write great female characters. This is the French cover by the way, way more beautiful !
Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning
Mackayla is also an interesting character. From baby doll to a badass warrior. She changed so much !
This is another french cover haha !
Ellana by Pierre Bottero
I don’t think this series has been translated, which is a shame. Ellana is a “shadow walker” and therefore is able to do things that a normal body shouldn’t be able to. She is an extremely trained warrior.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Well, not need to talk much about Katniss Everdeen, and how brave she is !
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Tris is also another brave young woman. She is fierce and will fight to death in order to protect the ones she loves.
The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason
Victoria Gardella may be the one that is the most similar to Buffy. She’s a vampire slayer, too !
But it’s set in a different time period.
And that’s it for my very first Top Ten Tuesday !
