Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Favorite Supporting Characters in Books
I suck at knowing which characters are TRULY minor/secondary characters and I realize I need to make note of these TRULY minor characters that I love when they come along.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Loved Cinna and Rue. They both impacted Katniss in such a profound way).
Paper Towns by John Green ( I loved Radar (and Ben too) and their obsessive Wiki love and Radar’s Santa collection)
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (Reagan isn’t SUPER minor but I had to include her because she really helps Cath come out of her shell but doesn’t try to change her!)
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley ( I couldn’t choose between Al and Bert because both had such an impact on Lucy & Ed. They both left an impression on me)
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins (Lola’s dads are MY FAVORITE EVER. They are so supportive and wonderful. I also want to give a shout-out to HEAVENS TO BETSY — the coolest dog ever.)
Just One Day by Gayle Forman ( Dee is an awesome friend to Allyson and I really loved him and how he kept it real)
Cinder by Marissa Meyer ( Iko is Cinder’s robot friend and I JUST LOVE IKO.)
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales (Mel is this awesome bouncer at the club and he just is an all around awesome old man that I loved so much!)
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta (Sigh Raffy and Chaz <3)
Honorable Mention: I didn’t know if they were minor enough but ROAR from Under the Never Sky series and Kenji from Shatter Me series!!
So tell me…do you love any of these supporting characters? Tell me some of YOUR favorites? Also, how do YOU define a “supporting” or “secondary” character?
