Top Ten Tuesday (12)

This week's topic is:
Top Ten All Time Favorite Characters In Books

In no particular order, I give you:

1. Mia Thermopolis - The Princess Diaries
I would spend the rest of my days reading about Mia sniffing boys necks and trying to self-actualize.

2. Jessica Darling - The Jessica Darling series
Is there anyone out there who doesn't love Jessica Darling?  I haven't found anyone yet.

3. Katniss Everdeen - The Hunger Games
Katniss is willing to give up her life in order to protect her family and she's fierce as hell while doing it. 

4. Peeta Mellark - The Hunger Games
I don't think I could put my love for Peeta into coherent words.

5. Cassel Sharpe - The Curse Workers series
I'm currently re-reading this series and that could be affecting this answer, but I don't think so.  I love me some Cassel.

6. Amy Haskel - Secret Society Girl
Amy spends a whole lot of her series proving she can play with the big boys who don't want her
gender mucking up their precious secret society and I love her for it.
7. Harry Potter - The Harry Potter series
The Boy Who Lived and has kept me wrapped up in his story for so many years now
8. Claudia Kishi - The Baby-Sitter's Club
 There's a special place in my heart for a girl who themes her outfits (like a taxi, really?)
and turns junk food wrappers into art.
9. Etienne St. Clair - Anna & The French Kiss
Hello, I love you, won't you tell me your name.

10. Augustus Waters - The Fault in Our Stars
I didn't expect him to jump into my heart as fast as he did, but he's here.

Bonus mentions:

Michael Moscovitz (The Princess Diaries) and Finnick Odair (The Hunger Games).  I love you both and ran out of room on my list.  You're perfect don't change.


  1. Etienne St. Claire...le sigh! Be still my heart! He is absolutely lovely. Great list, some of yours made my list too :)

  2. I love your choices! Especially Jessica Darling and Peeta.

  3. Claudia used to be my favorite of The Baby-Sitter's Club series too.

  4. I love that you added Finnick! And don't get me started ion Augustus. He is too good to be true! I had him on my list too, he is bringing back the ven diagram! Also, I must read Anna and the Fench Kiss. Great list!

  5. Katniss made my list, too. Harry didn't, but other characters from the HP series did. Wish I'd thought of Augustus!
