Kick Butt Characters Giveaway Hop!

Another awesome giveaway hosted by I am a Reader, Not a Writer. And this one looks at something close to my heart. I've always been a sucker for a kick-ass protagonist, particularly when they are female. 

So here's how I'm going to play this one. I'm going to have a good hard think about my TOP TEN favourite butt-kicking characters in Young Adult fiction. You get to win one of the books I mention, OR choose your own, explaining what's so kick-ass about the main character in the book you've chosen. Get it? Hope so! 

Take a look at the list and then fill out the Rafflecopter form. Can't see the form? Click here and scroll down.
