Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

This week is all about the leaders. It’s about the characters that have that charisma and ability to take charge, in the good and bad moments. Some characters fall into this role naturally, but others find that they are unwittingly thrust into a position they never wanted. Here are the characters that I feel are or would make great leaders.
