When I think kick butt character's my mind automatically drifts to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, yes, I'm one of those girls. I loved Buffy to death, but since we're featuring books here I think I've gotta say that the most kick butt character I've read in a while is Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
Not only did she take her sister's place, but she stood up against the other kids and she's just awesome, the end haha. Honestly though, Suzanne Collins did a really great job developing Katniss. She's strong, brave, not afraid to be vulnerable and she is an incredibly likable character.
So, I am giving away a paperback copy of The Hunger Games and a copy of The Hunger Games [2-Disc DVD + Ultra-Violet Digital Copy] to (1) winner.
*This giveaway IS open internationally. International participants will relieve an eBook copy and the digital version of the movie.
