This weekend has been pretty horrid and I’m very ready to write it off but I’m still here, still going and determined to do the best I can, including keeping up with my blog posts! I hope you’ve all had a better time, I’d love to hear about any good news or things that made you happy this week!
Happy Six for Sunday! The weekly challenge where we give six answers to a prompt form the lovely Steph at A Little But A Lot. This week the prompt is Favourite series characters! I haven’t read a ton of series and I have a lot of favourites from the same series but I’ll do my best not to overlap!
AIDAN from The Illuminae Files by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
This was a tough one because I love basically everyone in these books so I figured the only option was the non-human element (and honestly the best character). All of my favourite quotes are from AIDAN and I love that it’s such a complex character and part of the narrative.
Lazlo Strange from Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Lazlo is an absolute bean, he’s smart, kind and as the title suggests, a dreamer. He’s also a male main character who isn’t overly physically strong or ‘tough’ which I found refreshing. He’s also a giant book nerd so what’s not to love?
Jace from the Shadowhunter books by Cassandra Clare
I’ll be the first to admit, Jace is a bit of a dick at times. He’s stereotypically broody and angsty but does that make me love him any less? You bet it doesn’t. I love that he’s funny, sassy, determined and focused, he kicks butt and he loves his girl.
Jude from The Folk of Air books by Holly Black
I think Jude may be one of my favourite book characters full stop. I love that she’s not ‘perfect,’ she’s morally grey and does what it takes to get things done.
Lucien from A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
Another kind of funny, sassy yet broody and angsty guy…I have a type okay?
Yelena from the Chronicles of Ixia books by Maria V. Snyder
Yelena is the main protagonist of the Study books within the Chronicles of Ixia series which really got me back into reading. She’s stubborn and determined, feisty and clever, she knows her strengths and when to ask her friends for help too. She’s a character I very much aspired to be like while I was trying to ‘find myself’ a bit when I was younger.
I hope you enjoyed my list! I certainly enjoyed making it. Do you have any of these on your list? What would your answers be?
