Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Characters

TTTTop Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and Bookish.

Top Ten  All Time Favorite Characters in Books

This one was surprisingly easy.  They aren’t in any particular order, though I probably love Four and Anna the best. 

1. Four (Divergent by Veronica Roth) – This one should be self explanatory.
2. Anna (Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake) – She is one of the best ghosts ever, and once you find out what her story is you can’t help but love her a little more.
3. Hartley (Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday) – She is absolutely hilarious.
4. Eric (Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris) – He is so flipping hot.

5. Mara Dyer (The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin) – She is mysterious and powerful and amazing.
6. Becky (Confessions of a Shopaholic Series by Sophie Kinsella) – I know she ditsy, but she’s fun.
7. Étienne (Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins) – Sigh.
8. Hermione (Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling) – I loved all the characters but she’s my favorite.  I like her smartness and how she’s always getting Harry and Ron out of trouble.  (Note to Courtney – I could have picked someone else, but I didn’t, mostly out of fear.)
9. Rory (The Name of the Star by Maureen Jordan) – She was normal, yet not normal.  It was perfect.
10. Aibeleen (The Help by Kathryn Stockett) – The things she went through to help Skeeter were amazing and I loved her chapters the most.  Though it was a tough call between her and Minny.

What are your top ten characters?

    Four is definitely self explanatory. And I sigh when I think about Etienne too. So. Much. Pretty. I really like your list.
    My List

    On all of the ones I’ve read, I’m totally with you. And… because it has to be done… Alexander Skarsgard!!!!

  3. Jenny

    Every freaking list I’m reading today has yet another character I’d have to have on mine! That’s why I didn’t participate. Top Ten would have turned into Top Fifty. ;)

  4. Kelsey@TheLostBookReports

    I totally agree about Rory, had I made a list she probably wouldn’t have been in my Top 10, however, she is a character I do really like!

  5. Brittani

    Great list! I agree with almost all of it! So many great characters I didn’t think of to mention in my post!

    My Top Ten


  6. Kate@Midnight Book Girl

    lol, I love how you didn’t post Neville to avoid a smack down with Courtney! :) And obviously I agree whole heartedly with your list, at least on the books that I’ve read.

  7. Andrea @ The Overstuffed Bookcase

    What, does Courtney think she’s got Neville all to herself or something??? Bah. ;)

    Four & Eric: YES.
    Hermione is awesome but my faves are Sirius and Ron.
    I like Etienne but I LOVE Cricket.

    Great list though! I need to read some of those, especially Mara Dyer, which has been in my TBR pile for months now!

    • Kimberly @ On the Wings of Books

      Any of the HP characters could have made my list cause they were all so good! I liked Etienne better, but if Josh is the guy in Happily Ever After I KNOW I’m going to like him the best.

      And you should definitely read Mara Dyer, but at this point I would say to wait until closer to the next release because of the ending.

  8. Bittner

    I don’t know how I missed this one! I am so sorry!

    I haven’t read Divergent or Anna Dressed in Blood but I hope I get to someday!
    I haven’t read but I own copies of Deadly Cool, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and The Help. I will be reading all before the year is done at least!
    Eric was way hotter then Bill. I haven’t read the whole series but I got through book 4!
    I liked Becky too! I liked her better in the book then in the movie. She was way ditsier in the movie.
    I liked Étienne, I really did, but I agree with Andrea. I loved Cricket! He would do anything for Lola!
    Rory was awesome! I liked her a lot too!

    As far as Harry Potter characters go…You can show Neville all the respect that he deserves, just from a safe distance and keep your hands off!!! Just kidding! I actually like that you love him as much as I do!
