So I've grown kind of sick of the teen in a paranormal highschool who has to save the world etc... stories, but I've yet to find very many books--adult or y/a--that have as cool main characters as Rose. Aka tough, intelligent, rebellious, witty, funny, not perfect yet not without kindness, compassion or other redeeming traits--in short total bamfs. Can anyone give me some good recs on books with main characters like her? (Excellent plots and writing in addition to this are a given). An extreme adult version of what I'm talking about would be Mallory from the Carol O'Connell "Mallory" series....

I've already read "The Hunger Games (loved)," "Graceling (so-so)," "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" series (disliked for it's total lack of humor), "Divergent" (liked), and several other obvious ones...

(Also, Please please please no one say Twilight--Bella is pretty much the antithesis of what I'm talking about).

Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost. Same genre Adult series (Not sure if this is a negative for you). Cat is similar to Rose. She's a half vampire breed as well. She's an adult so no school issues etc. In the series she's the second half breed to have been born, and the only living one. Half Breeds are extremely rare. The series has Ghouls, Ghost, Demons, Vampires, and a few other supernatural entities show up as well. Cat is tough, beautiful, compassionate, loving, strong willed, and should never be underestimated.

You might try the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead as well. Adult series has some explicit scenes. Georgina is a strong willed, near immortal, succubus that can shape shift. The series has, demons, angels, succubi, nephilim, dream/multi-dimensional creatures, vampires (they don't play a big roll in this series), and other creatures. An epic love story. This is my favorite series at the moment.

Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. Might be dissapointed with the ending.

Realized too late this post is from 2012. Maybe it'll help someone else looking for recommendations.
