Top Ten Tuesday...

We’re joining in on the fun over at The Broke and the Bookish for their Top Ten Tuesday.  Today’s list is:
Top Ten Rebels in Literature:
Monica’s List
These aren’t necesarily the top ten, but they are the characters that pop into my mind first when I think of good rebels in literature.
1. Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins - Epitome of a rebel to me. 
2. Isi from Goose Girl by Shannon Hale - Rebels to survive
3. Lady Katsa from Graceling by Kristin Cashore - She is one kick-butt hitwoman.  You don't want to be on her bad side.
4. Dru Anderson from Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow - She's tired of being left in the dark.  Her powers are growing and so is her rebellious streak.
5. Meghan Chase from the Iron Fey series by Julia Kagawa - She fights to keep those she loves safe.
6. Lena Haloway from Delirium by Lauren Oliver - Nobody's going to tell her what to do, especially when it comes to love.
7. Violet Ambrose from The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting - Nothing will stop her from finding a killer. 
8. Rosamund Vivian from A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa May Alcott - She's far from the classic proper girls of most 1800's literature.  She knows what she wants and she'll have it.  
9. Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - The classic rebel, she'll live life on her terms.
10. Huck Finn from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain - It's the spirit of rebellion that keeps this young boy going.

Oh drat, I should have thought of Katsa in Graceling. Good call.
