|12 Days of Bookmas|
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!
On the eighth day of Bookmas my fictional boyfriend sent to me,
8 bad ass heroines,
7 stunning covers,
6 favourite quotes,
5 fantastic bloggers,
4 epic series,
3 NA Treasures,
2 booktastic trailers,
and a swoon worthy scene for me!
Task: We all love our heroines, but which eight are your favourite?
Okay, I'm going to try and keep this list limited to ONLY heroines in 2013 releases...emphasis on the word try....
Mackenzie smiled. "When Ali Bell gives you the finger, she's telling you how many seconds you have to live."
Cole chuckled, saying, "Fear of spiders is arachnophobia, and fear of tight spaces is claustrophobia, but fear of Ali Bell is just called logic."
"Oh, oh." Kat clapped excitedly. "There used to be a street named after Ali Bell, but it was changed because nobody crosses Ali Bell and lives. True story.”
Although I did not like Allegiant., I can't form this list without putting Tris on it. She is heroic, strong-willed, determined and makes you love her in a way that makes ending Allegiant a true difficulty.
The fact that Katy loves books and has a blog herself should be reason enough for her to be on this list, however, her passion, fierceness, and strength to put the ones she loves first makes her extra worthy of being amongst these females.
Kind, strong, innocent andddd not-so-innocent......;)
If you weren't so perfect Anna, I'd steal Kaidan from you !
Alex Andros is the definition of bad-ass....and....she does it with witt!
“Aw, did you just fall?"
"No." I rolled onto my back, wincing. "I attacked the floor.”
“One must always be careful of books," said Tessa, "and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.”
“She'd survived the outside. She'd survived the Aether and cannibals and wolves. She knew how to love now, and how to let go. Whatever came next, she would survive it, too”
“I did something brave, then. Or stupid. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference.”
