Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish which allows us to make fun bookish lists and share them with the world.
This week's list is:
Top Ten Mean Girls
10. Rachel Price from The Poisonwood Bible
Rachel isn't so much a mean girl as a snotty, whiny brat. She's materialistic and full of herself from the beginning of the book all the way to the end. For a book that spans around 40 years, it's pretty sad when someone experiences practically zero personal growth.

9. Mrs. Reed in Jane Eyre
Jane's aunt is mean, spiteful and just plain cruel. What's worse is that she is all these things to a child. Seriously, it's quite sad when your poor niece has better manners and more class than you and your family all put together.

8. Lola Quincey from Atonement
I know this one is a bit of a stretch and I feel a bit like a mean girl myself for including a victim of sexual assault on this list. However, I'm a little on the fence about how much of a victim she was. She was too young to actually consent but I feel like she was possibly a willing participant and went along with Briony's claim that the Robbie was a rapist, probably afraid of her parents finding out or to save her reputation. I could go on but that's another discussion. Lola is on my list because ruining a mans life to save your skin is despicable.
7. Rosalie Hale from Twilight
This is an easy one. She's conceited and snotty and isn't afraid to point out your flaws to your face. She's like an immortal Regina George. 'Nuff said.
6. Hilly Holbrook from The Help
I think this is a no-brainer for anyone who has read the book. Hilly is a complete and total bitch. She's racist, full of herself, bossy, snooty and just plain evil.Seriously, just watch the trailer.

5. Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada
She's the complete boss from hell. She's tough as nails and takes no prisoners. I think I'd rather be homeless than work under this woman. Seriously, you don't get the title 'Dragonlady' without being a mean girl.

4. Hatsumomo from Memoirs of a Geisha
Hatsumomo is sch a complete cow to Sayuri through the entire book for what appears to be no apparent reason. In reality she's just insanely jealous of Sayuri and her beauty but then again, isn't jealously the driving force behind many mean girls?

3. Delores Umbridge from Harry Potter
Ohhh, never have I hated a fictional character more than Delores Umbridge. From her very first 'hem, hem' to the end of the series, I actively despised this woman. If she was real I don't know that I could stop myself from hunting her down for a good old fashioned bitchslap!

2. Caroline Bingley from Pride & Prejudice
She's just a super snotty beyotch that feels the need to belittle others to make herself look better. Of course, we all know that tactic almost always backfires.
1. President Coin from Mockingjay
Ugh, this woman just ends up being the epitome of everything she's fighting against. Electing her was like trading one brand of poison for another. Except she's trying to dress it up as a betterment for the county. Whatever, she's a cow.
Ok, which ladies are you all ready to bitchslap?
