Top 5 Wednesday: Independent Ladies

It's another Wednesday and you know what that means? Another Top 5 Wednesday! This month's theme is Independent Ladies. It's all about ladies who don't let anything--or anyone--distract them from getting stuff done! Let's jump right in...

1. Aelin from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Anyone who's read this series knows how much Aelin does on her own. While it's frustrating at times, Aelin plans a lot of things without consulting others to the point where even the readers are shocked at what she's planned when it finally happens. Now, is this the best course of action in a war? Probably not, but there's no denying that Aelin is one of the most independent characters out there. 

2. Safiya fon Hasstrel from Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

While Safiya does rely on others from time to time, she's pretty independent. After reading Bloodwitch, this is only that much more obvious to me. Despite everyone around her wanting to control her in some aspect, Safi always figures out a way to maintain control over some part of her situation. She doesn't let others distract her from her goals, even if there's a potential love interest in the air. She's also fiercely loyal, which just adds to how great of a character she is. 

3. Amren from A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

You can't talk about independent characters without mentioning Amren from the ACOTAR series. From the very beginning, she's a take-no-shit kind of character who doesn't let those around her mess with her or make her lose sight of her mission. 

4. Audrey Rose from Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

It's been a while since I read this book but from what I remember, Audrey is hella independent. In a time where women weren't really included in the sciences, not only does she study forensics but she also works to hunt down Jack the Ripper. Even with men around her trying to get her to stand back and protect her, Audrey just keeps pushing forward like a badass. 

5. Tella from Caraval by Stephanie Garber

I've had some issues with Tella but I do have to admit that she's one of the most independent characters in the Caraval universe. I can't really explain why without spoiling the books, but everything she does is just so calculated and badass.
