Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Characters

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme held by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is:

Top Ten Characters in XXX Genre

I can't choose a specific genre, so I'm just going to pick my favourites characters. In no particular order:

- Clara Gardner from Cynthia Hand's Unearthly series. I just loved the way she progressed through the series.

- Lex Bartleby from Gina Damico's Croak series. She's sarcastic and kick ass, maybe even a bitch sometimes but I loved her.

- Six from Pittacus Lore's Lorien Legacies. Her powers are just so freaking awesome, and she's another kick-ass female as well.

- Katsa from Kristin Cashore's Graceling Realms. She may seem hard on the outside, but she's quite soft on the inside.

- Pretty much everyone from Sarah Dessen's books that was a protagonist. I loved all of them, well the one's I've read anyways.

- Tobias from Veronica Roth's Divergent series. I have no words, I just really love him.

- Augustus Waters from John Green's The Fault in Our Stars. Sweet, loving guy. With a love for metaphors.

- Jake from Moira Young's Dustlands series. Strong, brooding, just all together freaking SWOONWORTHY. But he's also very caring.

- Tucker from Cynthia Hand's Unearthly series. A:LDKFJS:LDKJ

- Po from Kristin Cashore's Graceling Realms. His Grace is awesome, and he cares so much about his family and friends. 


  1. So it seems that I need to read Graceling and Unearthly. Actually, I already knew that, but reading this and your love for the characters just reminds me that I should get on it!

  2. I love both of them so much! The concept of Graceling is really interesting, and although slow at points, the overall feeling I had for the books was immense. I haven't actually read Fire yet, but I'm hoping to get back to it.

  3. I loved Po in Graceling! Such a caring and mischievous figure! Not too sure about Katsa myself. I found her quite hard to empathise with but I am willing to give Graceling another go one day as I do love fantasy and it had such an interesting concept :) Great list, thanks for sharing!

    I love the Dustland series and Jack is such an awesome character! Great pick! http://wp.me/pzUn5-1qt

  6. Lex, Katsa and Po are all such great characters - I'm glad to see them on your list! Thanks for sharing!

  7. He was an amazing character, and his love for Katsa was so sweet! I actually really liked Katsa, I could see why some people wouldn't though.

  8. Sometimes, it feels as if her characters blend together. Her books always make me so emotional!

  9. I had no choice but to put them on, I love them!!

  10. I really love Katsa too! It's hard not to love Augustus, gosh. I'm excited to see how Clara's journey ends in Boundless!
