Kick-Butt Characters Blog Hop





Welcome to the Kick-Butt Characters Blog Hop Hosted by Good Choice Reading & I Am A Reader, Not A Writer.

This Hop features the best Kick-Butt Characters in Young Adult Books.
I am giving away two books featuring two of my favorite kick-butt characters.




First is Pure by Jennifer Armentrout, who is one kick-butt author. Pure features my girl Alex, who can definitely kick some butt - sometimes daimon butt, sometimes Seth's butt, and you'll have to read the book to find out who else's butt she kicks. Make no mistake, Alex can certainly bring it.

There is need. And then there is Fate...

Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her.

When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon... and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude... or killing her.

When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.





Second is Insurgent by Veronica Roth. Insurgent features another one of my favorite kick-butt characters, Tris. We first met Tris in Divergent, where we found that she can dish it out..... and she can take. Tris is one tough cookie. This book will be availble in May and will be shipped to you when it is released.

One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.
