Top Ten Tuesday #19 – Top Ten Secondary Characters
This week on Top Ten Tuesday we are discussing secondary characters who are truly amazing. I have linked to the books these characters appear in, in case you want to know more about them as well. And you should totally check out my Sidekick Showcase posts, since that weekly meme is truly about the secondary characters, every week, and each week, the sidekicks highlighted have a theme.
Top Ten Tuesdays is a fun meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we share our excitement for books, and I really like how this meme makes me think about the books I read, why I read them, and who to recommend my favorite reads to. So, here we go :
As usual, my list is in no particular order :
Jenks from The Hollows series by Kim Harrison. Jenks is a pixie, and he has a big mouth, and an even bigger heart. He saves Rachel more times than I can count, and he is always there to help her out.
Justus from Dannika Dark’s Mageri series. He is Silver’s mentor, and he is often a little distant and cold, however, as the series progresses, so does Justus, and when he reveals himself, he is even more awesome than he appears in the beginning of the series.
Eve from the Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine. She is Clare’s best friend, a Gothic chick with a kick-ass attitude, and the best friend any character can have. I love her!
Regina from Jeri Smith-Ready’s WVMP Radio series. Regina is a vampire who tries to play it cool, and pretends she doesn’t really care about her friends, but she does, and she has some of the funniest lines.
Finn from Suzanne McLeod’s Spellcrackers.com series. He is a satyr, gorgeous and fun, with an edge, and he would love to be with Genevieve, even if it’s not always for the right reasons.
Pam from Sookie Stackhouse by Charlaine Harris because she is so sure of herself, extremely loyal and knows how to play the game.
Murphy from Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files series, because she knows how to fight, she is loyal, always honest (brutally so sometimes) and she will always have her friends’ backs.
Kenzie from Julie Kagawa’s The Iron Fey series. She is fierce, intelligent, and won’t back down from a challenge she thinks she needs to be a part of. She is human in a world of fey, and she has to be very smart to make it.
Thomas from The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau, because he was the only character worthy of Cia’s trust, both smart and a good guy, with lots of resources to make sure survival and university was at the end of the endless days of testing.
Julia from Colleen Hoover’s Slammed, because I wish there were more parents like her in the books I read, she is able to give excellent advice, and makes sure she hides her own suffering so her children can continue on their paths.
I have also reviewed all of this books right here on (un)Conventional Bookviews if you’re curious. The links provided above will take you to the Goodreads page of each series or book.
Thanks for stopping by today, have a terrific Tuesday, and happy reading.
