An excuse to gush about my all-time favorite characters?!? Don’t mind if I do…
In no particular order, my top ten favorite book characters:
1 HARRY. JAMES. POTTER.
I’ve talked about Harry so many times and I could go on and on forever. I will talk about him even more during my HP re-read later this year, so I’ll save my longer discussions for that. Just know that he’s my best boy.
2 Inej Ghafa (Six of Crows)
Inej was my favorite member of the Dregs from early on and my love for her has only grown upon later re-reads. She is so fierce and I am sooo eager to hear more about her in later Grishaverse books!
3 Finnick Odair (The Hunger Games)
Finnick was one of the first secondary characters that completely stole the show for me. I read The Hunger Games early in high school and he immediately caught my eye in Catching Fire and deserved SO MUCH BETTER IN MOCKINGJAY. I’m still upset about that.
4 Nikolai Lantsov (Grishaverse)
My favorite from the Grisha trilogy! He’s a sassy privateer, how could you not love him?
5 Delilah Bard (Shades of Magic)
MY KNIFE BABE. I love her sooo much. An absolutely amazing character.
6 Hermione Granger (HP)
I relate a lot to Hermione and she will always have a special spot in my fictional character heart.
7 Vasya Petrovna (Winternight Trilogy)
A recent favorite! The Winternight Trilogy very quickly cemented itself in my all-time favorite books list and Vasya is a giant reason for that. She is incredible and I adore her.
8 Albus Dumbledore (HP)
I originally had Sirius in this spot, but if I’m being completely honest with myself, Dumbledore is really one of my favorite, favorite HP characters. He is so complex and compelling and I know there’s loads of reasons about why he’s kind of a shitty person but in the end, he’s just a truly fascinating character and I love him.
9 Alucard Emery (Shades of Magic)
Pretty much all of the Shades of Magic characters would crack my top 20 favorite characters because they are all so great, but Alucard is amazing. His friendship with Lila is one of my favorite BROTPs ever.
10 Percy Jackson
Last but never least, the son of Poseidon himself! I just re-read PJO and it only reawakened my love for him. I’ll love this boy until my dying days!
