Top Ten Tuesday: Rebels in Literature

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where bloggers make lists about books and other suitably bookish things. This week we're doing our favourite rebels in literature, either author or character!

1. Well, obviously, Katniss Everdeen. She's really the first rebel I really read about in YA (it's been nearly a year since I read THG now! I should reread them...) and she just kind of amazed me. It's less about her being a rebel though and more about her just sort of becoming one whether she wanted to or not, and her own rebellion against that, if that made any sense...

2.  Tris from Divergent. Yeah, I don't really read many books about rebels, but you guys know how much I LOVE Divergent, and Tris, and how much of an excellent rebel she is. She's so strong and will fight so hard for what she believes in...

3. Melinda from Speak. Melinda is a rebel, she may be silent, but that doesn't mean she isn't rebelling against everything that's happened to her... I want to read Speak again now... ;)

4. Elder from Across the Universe. Everyone whose read it will know how much Elder has and had to rebel against...

5.  Evie from Paranormalcy. I just LOVE Evie.  Plus, not only is she a rebel, she a Tasey-wielding bad-ass.

6. Rue from The Hunger Games. She's a rebel in her own right, even though she was just a 12 year old trying to survive... :'(

7. Cinna from THG. You do not know how sad I was about Cinna, he was one of my favourite characters and don't think even his sense of style wasn't rebellious because it was! He was so wonderful.


  1. Cinna and Rue were definitely favorite characters from THG. Are you enjoying Will Grayson? My duaghter just finished it this week so I got a chance to refresh my memory of it with her.

  2. Love all the Hunger Games people! Katniss made my list, though Cinna slipped my mind. Tris is also in my top ten. Love the list, and I'm a new follower. :)

    My Top Ten

  3. Great list! I love Evie and I really need to read Across the Universe...

    Here is my list: http://liedermadchen.blogspot.com/2011/07/top-ten-tuesday-3.html

  4. Great list... don't know some of the characters so more to add to the wish list. http://unicornslaststand.blogspot.com

  5. Ditto Cinna. (And we're still not sure how we feel about Lenny Kravitz playing him...)

  6. I have Katniss on my list too. I hope you are enjoying reading Will Grayson. I loved it.
