Top Ten Favourite Characters

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's theme is...Your All Time Favourite Book Characters!

  1. It's gotta be... Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games! I love The Hunger Games, and I love Katniss! She's so brave, fiery and inspirational.
  2. Verity/Queenie/Julie from Code Name Verity - I adored Julie; she was so witty, charming, funny, brave and SO CLEVER! (If you've read the book, you'll understand. If you haven't read the book...why not?!)
  3. Ron Weasley from (do I even have to say it?) Harry Potter! I mean, he's just hilarious!
  4. Constance Contraire from The Mysterious Benedict Society - Ahhhh! How can you not love Constance? She's EXTREMELY small and EXTREMELY clever, grumpy, stroppy and, as her name might suggest, very contrary, but you forgive her for all of that when you find out she's only TWO!
  5. Tris from Divergent - I love her for pretty much the same reasons as Katniss - she's brave, fiery and inspirational!
  6. Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter - I love Luna's wistful aloofness and the way she is so intuitive and so blunt and honest.
  7. Mina McKee from My Name Is Mina - I love Mina's quirkiness and individuality; the way she thinks is so... clever and unique. And she's just a really sweet, happy person.
  8. Sherlock Holmes - Ever since I first came across Sherlock Holmes in an kids' version of several Sherlock Holmes short stories, I have marvelled at his awesomeness! The way he manages to piece seemingly insignificant details together to always produce the correct answer is ingenious!
  9. Noah Shaw from The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer - Umm, gorgeous much?!
  10. Alex from Hunting Lila - ditto above        

Who are your favourite characters? Leave me a comment and I'll be sure to drop by and check out your posts! :)


  1. Great list! I can't wait to read Code Name Verity, I have heard such great things about it. Luna is such a fun character and Tris is great pick too (Four's not so bad either ;))

  2. I agree with so many of those, and great choice putting Katniss at the head of the list! I was expecting the movie to be a bit of a let down, but it was sooooo good :D

    1. I know - I didn't know quite waht to expect, but I was just hoping like crazy that I wouldn't be disappointed...and I wasn't! It was great! :)

  3. I agree with ALL of these, especially Katniss, Constance, Tris, and Noah. I love Katniss's strength, how Constance is an "underdog" (sort of like me), and I love Tris, too, and Four. You gotta love Four. And then Noah just rocks my socks off! ;) Great choices!

    1. You're totally right - you have just gotta love Four! :)
