12 Days of Bookmas {Day #8} + Giveaway

It’s that time of year again, a time filled with snow, decorations, trees and busy malls! With all of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season going on around us, it’s easy to forget what’s truly important- Bookmas! So, to help us prepare  and count down to this special holiday that is coming our way, I will be going through the 12 Days of Bookmas! What’s that you ask? Each and every day, until December 25th, I will be completing a special Bookmas task that will showcase some of my “Bookworm Favourites!” Your job? To read, comment, and spread Bookmas cheer by telling your friends and sharing Bookmas posts on facebook and twitter using the hashtag #12DAYSofBOOKMAS ! Merry Bookmas to all, and to all good reading!
{Bookmas Day #8}

On the eighth day of Bookmas my fictional boyfriend sent to me,
8 bad ass heroines,
7 stunning covers,
6 favourite quotes,
5 supernaturals,
4 epic series,
3 evil villians,
2 booktastic trailers,
and a swoon worthy scene for me!

Task: We all love our heroines, but which eight are your favourite? List your choices!

The following list is in no particular order....choosing one over another is seriously impossible!
*Play music for the epic Bad-Ass-Heroine listing experience* ;)

Clary Fray from The Mortal Instruments Series
^ Is anybody else completely in love with Lily Collins playing Clary in The Mortal Instruments movie?!

Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy Series
Honestly, Rose is probably the very definition of a "bad-ass heroine!"

Meghan Chase from The Iron Fey Series
What can I say, when you lead an epic war and become Iron Queen, you end up on the bad-ass list!

Dru Anderson from The Strange Angels Series
Although the last book in this series frustrated me beyond belief, you can't deny that Dru's got some scary moves....and of course, when I say scary, I mean awesome :P

Alex Andros from The Covenant Series
How can you not love Alex?! She's sarcastic, opinionated, and can quite possibly take down any guy that thinks he can take her--well, except Aiden of course *giggles

Sydney Sage from The Bloodlines Series
This Alchemist gets the job done every time! As she's starting to loosen up, we see how tough this character really is!

Evie Claremont from The Premonition Series
Evie's self-sacrafice attitude and bad-ass-in-training talents are what get her onto this list ! 

Beatrice "Tris" Prior from The Divergent Series
She's in the faction Dauntless (The fearless and brave) -- 'nuff said!

***For any extra tweets that mention @TheYABookworm and #12DAYSofBOOKMAS, I will manually add you one extra entry for up to ten tweets a day***

Again, I am well aware that I'm missing quite a few characters on this list, so my question to you is, who's your favourite bad-ass heroine in YA?! Be sure to let me know in the comments below! Merry Bookmas!

Your Y.A. Bookworm,
Caitlin <3


  1. My favorite is Alex from The Covenant series! She has a really strong personality, I love her!

    1. She's a great choice! The Covenant Series is one of my favs !

  2. My favorite heroine would probably be Evie from the Premonition Series! She is a bad ass hybrid! I love her witty/sarcastic personality and like you said, her willingness to sacrifice herself for those she loves.

    1. Aww I love fellow heroine lovers! Evie is a special character indeed- I agree with you, her wittiness makes her irresistible !

  3. I love Rose from Vampire Academy and Katsa from Graceling! :D

    1. I haven't yet read the Graceling series, but Rose is a bad-ass-heroine "staple" for me :)

  4. Tris is awesome! I also like Katsa and Hermione and Clary :)

  5. I wanted you to know I think this is such an ingenious idea. And I love your "lyrics" to the 12 Days...

    A few of my favorite heroines are Bryn from the Raised by Wolves series, Katniss from the Hungers Games, and Meridian from the Meridian series.

    1. Thank-you so much!

      I totally agree with Katniss-- but I haven't read the other two series yet :)

  6. Rose from Vampire Academy, Katniss from Hunger Games, Clary from Mortal Instruments, Tris from Divergent, Jennifer from The Grey Wolves, Katy from Lux, Celaena from Throne of Glass and Yelena from Study.

    My epic Bad Ass Heroines =D

  7. Of course most of us love Katniss from Hunger games but other favs are Tris from Divergent, Katy from The Lux Series and Juliette from Shatter Me
