Two Top Tens in two weeks! I checked out this topic and didn't think I'd be able to come up with ten characters. I always have memory issues, but I just remembered my favorite books and they came naturally.
Warning: Spoilers ahead if you have not read these books!
1. Fred and George Weasley - The Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling. I admit that I am "stealing" this from Kelly. I had my list and then I saw hers and I thought, "How could I have left them out???!!!" I totally love them!!! I even wrote a post that included why I love them (HERE). They are characters that had me laughing out loud and crying as well. Two things I don't normally do when reading.
2. Katniss Everdeen - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I don't care that people say she's selfish. That's kind of why I love her. It's every man for himself at the Hunger Games, what is she supposed to do? She has to live! She uses her strength, guile and resourcefulness to get ahead. Also, she can't be that unloveable for Peeta and Gale to fall for her and Rue to help her.
3. Cas Lowood - Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. When I started this book it threw me that the protagonist was male...and I totally loved it! And I loved him. He is just so smart and cool.
4. Nick Andros - The Stand by Stephen King. I love him. Love. I imagined FanFic where I married him. My heart broke when he died. Enough so that I lamented about it for a long time.
5. Josh Hutchins and Swan - Swan Song by Robert McCammon. This is in my top 3 favorite books of all time. I loved following Josh and Swan through their epic trials. They are both so brave and loving.
6. Lizzie - Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - I think most of us can relate to her.
7. Jilly Coppercorn - The Newford Series by Charles de Lint. Jilly features in several of de Lint's short stories and books. She also appears as a secondary character as well in many. She had an incredibly difficult childhood but managed to overcome it and find magic, family and love.
8. Scout - To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I totally love this gal. Her spunk and heart are so huge that she is able to carry the whole book.
