Top Ten Tuesday was created and is hosted by The Broke And The Bookish. This week's topic is rebels in literature - the characters who stand up for what they believe in, no matter the circumstances.
1. Katniss Everdeen. (Hunger Games) Duh. Do I need to elaborate? She literally led a rebellion.
2. The Cullens. (Twilight) Roll your eyes, I don't care, but I'm not talking about Edward or Bella. I'm talking about the Cullens in general, how they defy what they are and what they're meant to do. They should be out draining people to sate their thirst for blood. That's what's normal. Their striving to live amongst humans and keep them safe is what makes them so rebellious.
3. Lena (Delirium) She's taught that love is a disease, something to be afraid of. But she rebels against it when she meets Alex. I love that even though love is depicted as some kind of deadly virus, she still moves toward it.
4. Katsa (Graceling) She's used as a killing machine, but she became one of my favorite rebels when she started fighting for what she believed in and stopped letting herself be a weapon.
5. The Weasley Twins (Harry Potter) I could list a lot of Harry Potter characters, but come on, Fred and George have been rebelling since we were first introduced to them. And they do it so hilariously too.
I only have five for today, but I'll most likely list more later! What about you! Any of these your favorite literary rebels?
