Top Ten Tuesday: Fierce Females I’d Share a Meal With

Top Ten TuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is “Top Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books (Does a character eat something you’d love? Or maybe the book takes place in a bakery/restaurant that makes yummy things? You could also talk about 10 of your favorite cookbooks if you don’t read foody books.).” I struggled mightily with this week’s topic. Does this ever happen to you when you see a TTT topic and you completely draw a blank? So this week, I’m going to totally cheat and list a few fierce females that I wouldn’t mind sharing a meal with. As you can tell from the list, I might have a death wish? It could possibly be my last meal? I might die happy regardless? Covers are linked to Goodreads.


1. Shahrzad from The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh

2. Gauri from A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi

3. Yael from Wolf By Wolf by Ryan Graudin

4. Ada and Corinne by Iron Cast by Destiny Soria

5. Lada from And I Darken by Kiersten White

6. Xifeng from Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao

7. Inej and Nina from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

8. Kestrel from The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

9. Elisa from The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson

10. Ismae from Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

Would you share a meal with any of these characters? Which fierce female would you like to bond over brunch? Let me know in the comments and be sure leave a link to your own TTT post, so I can visit.

  1. Super fun way to spin the topic this week, Alicia. I’ve looked at “Grave Mercy” a lot (on lists or in passing on Amazon), but haven’t ever really looked too deeply into whether or not it’d be a “me” book. Glad to know it features a fierce heroine though – and that cover? It’s epic!

    Still have to read Leigh’s and Marie’s series too! Someday.

  2. Isn’t it just horrible that I can’t remember much about Ismae? I swear I’ve read and vaguely even recall enjoying her fierce and tenacious character. Sigh. But, I’m not a total lost cause. I adore Inej, Shahrzad, Yael, and Ada. As for the remaining, I would love to get to know them. Great list, Alicia! You missed yourself on that list. 😉

  3. I like how you tweaked the topic this week. It really works! Ada and Corinne do not get mentioned enough. I love them. I would definitely eat out with them! (TBH I would hang out will all of these characters. Why do I love fictional people so much?)

  4. I like your twist on this weeks theme! And I totally agree with your choices, all these women would be awesome to sit down for a meal with 🙂

  5. Great list. A good meal is all about good company, right? I really enjoyed the women in the ones I’ve read (1, 3, 7, 9, 10), so now I’m that much more interested in picking up the rest of them.

  6. I really like your twist on the topic! I had trouble this week even though I had ideas for the topic; sometimes I have trouble getting my thoughts down into words! It would be fun to have waffles with Inej and Nina and I bet Elisa would have some amazing food around. I’d be way too scared to eat with Lada though haha!
