Ten Eleven Most Memorable Secondary Characters:
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they have a different Top Ten list topic that a bunch of bloggers take and make their own list of those things. This week is a list of the Top Ten Most Memorable Secondary Characters.
1. Luna Lovegood
Luna has always been one of my favorite characters of all time, let alone in the Harry Potter world. She's so quirky and smart in a her own weird way. She's also freaking strong.
Adorable couple is adorable. Henry is all inventor-y and stuff and Charlotte is all kick-butt mother-y. I just can't handle their awesomeness.
Speaking of kick-butt characters, Nehemia is so awesome. She's strong and she stands by her values and protects her people. Her friendship with Calaena is one of my favorite things about the Throne of Glass series, too.
He was in about 20 pages of Insurgent, but I will never not love him. He was all nerdy and funny and he was trying to flirt with Christina and it was hilarious and sweet. I don't think I'll ever get over him.
Zhamh has always been a favorite of mine. He's a hilarious, kind, and generous gnome. What more could you even ask for?
I didn't like her getting in the way of Percabeth, but she is an awesome character in her own right. I mean, she attacked Kronos with a blue plastic hairbrush like the kick-butt girl she is. Then she gives up so much to become the oracle because she knows that it's her destiny.
What a cutie! He's one of my favorite characters in the series because he's just so funny and good-hearted. And now I'm a huge fan of him and Ella in the Heroes of Olympus series.
If you couldn't tell by looking at these last three choices, Rick Riordan is fantastic at creating memorable and loveable secondary characters. I didn't expect to care about Bes so much when he was first introduced, but he grew on me. I loved his relationship with the Kane siblings and how he was always willing to do anything to protect them.
One of my favorite characters of the series. She was so naïve, but caring and sweet. Always the good friend to Mia and the good girlfriend to Boris.
I've included a ton of my favorite strong female characters on this list, so it's only right that I also include Lady Beatriss from the Lumatere Chronicles (she's not the only strong female character from that series, but she's the only one I would define as a "secondary character"). She's a great mother despite everything she's been through.
I just read all the Throne of Glass novellas and I absolutely love Sam Cortland. I read Throne of Glass first and didn't think I would connect to Sam as much as I did (especially knowing how things would end). But I did. I really did. He was sweet and funny and sassy.
