Today's Top Five Wednesday topic is Biggest Badasses. I assume this means literary characters because this is a book blog. If it didn't, it does now.
Harry Dresden from the Dresden Files Series by Jim Butcher - Harry is a wizard for hire. He faces down demons and werewolves and such. Pretty badass.
Lestat de Lioncourt from the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice - Lestat is not really a good guy. He is mostly just a cold-blooded killer. But he's a high class killer.
Abby Von Normal from the Love Story series by Christopher Moore - I love Abby. She's a 15 year old, mouthy, little badass who makes large police officers cry.
Charley Davidson from the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones - Charley is a private investigator who is in a passionate relationship with the son of Satan. Badass, no?
Lisbeth Salander from the Millenium Series by Stieg Larsson - Lisbeth is so cool. She lives on her own terms and puts her brain to use. She doesn't shy away from exacting revenge and she doesn't need help.
I made sure to have more female badasses than male because girls gotta stick together. Do you have any to add to the list?
