Top Ten Characters I've Read This Year

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

Top Ten Tuesday
This week is Top Ten 
Character Traits I Love 
Characters I've Read This Year
Yup, there I am, disregarding the prompt again. But to be honest I just wasn't feeling it, and I couldn't really think of anything. So I'm changing it up and talking instead about my favourite characters that I've read this year. So far.
  1. Cara from The Year After You by Nina de Pass
    As much as she was unreliable and frustrating at times, I adored Cara in The Year After You by Nina de Pass.
  2. Evelyn from The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
    I very almost picked Monique from The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, but how could anyone resist the allure of Evelyn herself? Wow.
  3. Jana from Meat Market by Juno Dawson
    I cared so much for Jana that it actually hurt me a little to read Meat Market. I felt like I was breaking with her.
  4. Rhiannon from Sweetpea by CJ Skuse
    Screwed up and dark AF, I couldn't stop reading about Rhiannon in Sweetpea. Despite her abhorrent actions I ended up fully on her side.
  5. Laura from Beauty Sleep by Kathryn Evans
    I loved how inquisitive she was, how she didn't take everything at face value. I loved how she pretty much owned her vulnerability too.
  6. Imogen from The Sharp Edge of a Snowflake by Sif Sigmarsdóttir
    Imogen was my favourite out of the two lead characters in the Sharp Edge of a Snowflake, and I loved her story and seeing inside her mind.
  7. Selah from The Beholder by Anna Bright
    Selah was such a darling and I adore her. She was an absolute delight to read, and so good and pure, that I couldn't help but fall in love.
  8. Mena from Girls With Sharp Sticks by Suzanne Young
    Mena was very unreliable, but I absolutely loved reading about her. I loved her drive, how very much she wanted to live.
  9. Harper from A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
    She's such a Hufflepuff I want to squee. Kind and generous and loyal, with tenacity and drive.
  10. Emily from No Big Deal by Bethany Rutter
    Emily is such a freaking babe, and so relatable it almost hurt. I wish I'd had her as a character to read about when I was younger.
Who is your favourite character this year(so far)?


  1. Absolutely yes on Evelyn. I want to live a life she'd be proud of. Also I have No Big Deal on my TBR and cannot wait to start on it.

  2. Hallo, Hallo,...

    You're not the only one who creatively changes the topics for TTT! You'll find that I switched up the topic today myself but I also wanted to highlight the characters who have left an impression on me the most whilst highlighting authors I feel deserve more recomendation - you can find my post over here.

    I focused on a lot of stories/characters I've read this year - in particular the Harlequin Heartwarming series/authors - however, I have a really motley crew of choices - esp in regards to genre!

    I will have to revisit with you lateron today to see your thoughts on these characters! Thanks for routing to your posts!

  3. I loved Harper!!😍

  4. I still need to read a Curse So Dark and Lonely! 🙈 Great list x

  5. This was a good list. Nice job with it.

    My TTT.

  6. Fun take on this week's topic! These characters do sound interesting. Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  7. I have not read a single book on your list, although I have meant to, just never got around to it at any point.

    I think my favourite character that I have read this year has to be Sam from The Boy Who Steals Houses.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  8. I am not familiar with these characters but I do like a variety of character traits like those on your list. My TTT list

  9. I also love Laura! She is one of the only characters I've read on this list!

  10. I think a lot of people went rogue with this topic- I know I did. And I LOVED Girls With Sharp Sticks.

  11. Oooh, you have me so curious about Evelyn now -- Iv've had that book on my TBR for far too long. And Emily! Another book to investigate more -- fabulous list, lots of titles here I haven't seen before.

  12. I did love Rhiannon. She is seriously dark. I also loved Emily.

    I really liked Mae from Other Words for Smoke this year, also Sorrow (obviously) and Mia from Darkdawn. So many characters I love this year

  13. Exactly, who didn't love Evelyn?? I'm also reading Meat Market this month so great to hear Jana is a great character!

  14. It is great that you have found so many great characters this year.

  15. Other than 'Curse so Dark and Lonely,' I don't think I've heard of any of these books. So glad to know there are some memorable characters inside these pages. Fun twist on the subject. :) Many thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland last week.

  16. Loved Evelyn Hugo, and I was obsessed with Harper. She was so strong and sassy!
