Top Ten Tuesday: “Top Ten All Time Favorite Characters in Books”
Top Ten Tuesday is a fun way to spice up Tuesdays (because everyone hates Mondays, Wednesdays are the halfway point, Thursdays are “little Fridays”, and everyone knows about Fridays… :)) and it’s hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
So if there’s a movie made from the book, I’ll try to include the character’s picture, if not…I’ll post a picture of the cover of the book!
Hunger games – Gale
*contains spoilers* I love how even when Katniss goes to the games he takes care of Prim and her mom. Katniss is gone for like a 3 week stint; 2 weeks to train and a week in the arena. Even though she’s making out with Peeta, he still keeps his end of the bargain. I am totally biased that she should have ended up with him…or ran off with him in the first place.
Inescapable – Reed
Reed, Reed, Reed…first of all he’s just such a brooding death angel. (Which is totally hot.) He knows that falling in love with Evie is going to get him in trouble, but the fact that she falls in love with him OVER her soulmate???….that’s seriously hot.
Twilight – Emmett
He is an amazing brother. Sticks up for you, big bear, gives great hugs, always wants to play video games, or bet to see who’s stronger when you turn into a vampire. I just see him as this amazing guy (that puts up with Rosalie’s crap) and is super sweet… I almost wish Bella fell for him.
Beauty and the Beast – Belle
She can sing, she turns down the popular/good looking/rich guy in town, she loves to read, and she finds a prince in disguise! She lives in France, talks to candelabras (that talk back), and has birds land in her hands…she is my favorite Disney princess. (This is technically was a movie first and then turned into a book…but that’s ok!)
Eragon – Saphira
Dragons kick butt. She thinks she is the last of her race and bravely goes into battle to defend Eragon no matter the risk and is always worried about how she looks at the same time. A total girl but a beautiful devoted creature at the same time.
Partials – Kira
Kira has an amazing kick butt quality. She knows what’s right and goes for it. She doesn’t let a guy make her feel like she needs to be anything less than what she is and challenges herself to better herself and find the answers when no one else will. I think she and I could be friends…and my husband would hate her…haha!
Divergent – Four
First of all…did you see that we “freed” Four? 🙂 If not go read the chapter (from Four’s perspective) that was released yesterday on Divergent’s Facebook page! *happy dance!* Four is so complex, but not at the same time…Daddy issues and hard crush on Tris gives his calm demeanor a cool but damaging appeal. He is sweet but hard at the same time; he’s calm but has inner turmoil. I just love damaged goods. Haha!
Harry Potter – Neville Longbottom
*contains spoilers* A character that goes unnoticed the entire series kills Nagini (the snake) and helps Harry out like no one else could…I mean, who would have thought that Longbottom would be the one to help save the day? That just goes to show that without the Luna Lovegoods and Neville Longbottoms…our world would be destined for zombies and global takeovers by crazy dictators. That’s my opinion at least.
The Help – Minny
Who can put “crap” in a pie and make someone eat it? Minny. Who can then turn around and get a job working for a lady who pays her to basically teach her to cook? Minny. Who can deal with an abusive husband and keep a house with kids? Minny. Who has the most sass but can get away with it? Minny. There you have it.
Heist Society – “Kat” (Katarina)
Her family is so screwed up. Everyone is a thief or kidnapper or someone who definitely is not cool with the law. Even though her life isn’t normal she still wants to make sure her father isn’t the one pinned for stealing some paintings even though it seriously looks like he did. She’s loyal, smart, quick, and beautiful. A great character!
