Top Ten Favorite YA Characters

TTT is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten All Time Favorite Characters In Books

1.  Fred and George Weasley (Harry Potter) - They are so awesome, it's almost not fair that they don't exist. I would definitely be best friends with these two.

2.  Karou + Brimstone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone) - Both amazing and complex characters!

3.  Wes Baker (The Truth About Forever) - *swoons* (enough said)

4.  Susannah "Suze" Simon (Mediator) - Tough, sarcastic, relatable, and she can see (and beat up) ghosts. 

5.  Sirius Black (Harry Potter) - Without a doubt, my favorite character in the HP world. 

6.  Iko (Cinder) - Can I just say that I love and adore this little android? 

7.  Orion (Across the Universe) - Kind of a Spoiler: A villain, yes, but I still think he's very interesting as a character. I'm hoping he's in Shades of Earth more!

8.  Mara (The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer) - She is seriously the most intriguing narrator I've come across lately. Sarcastic, possibly crazy, and continuously surprising.  

9.  Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter) - This post is getting to be very Harry Potterish, but how can I not include this kooky gal? She's pure awesome with her odd accessories and even odder statements. 

10.  Rose & Dimitri (Vampire Academy series) - Yeah, yeah, I'm cheating again by choosing a pair. But, Rose + Dimitri = epic. 

Who's in your top ten?



  1. Lots of great pics here, and some unconventional HP ones.

    I love Suze in the Mediator series too...probably my favorite Meg Cabot character, though I loved Katie from Pants on Fire too.

  2. Oh, such a great list! I think that every single Harry Potter character could be counted, really. They're amazing!

    Also totally agree on Orion & Wes Baker. I'd forgotten about them, but I totally loved them in the books.

    My Top Ten

  3. Fabulous list!

    I love how you picked some slightly unconventional ones that others might breeze by.

    Laura @ The Traveling Owl

  4. OMG Luna! Love her character. So would have forgotten to add her.

  5. Iko yes! I almost put Cinder on my list but I didn't even consider Iko!

  6. I feel the same way about Iko. I'll have to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone and see what's so great about Karow and Brimstone.

  7. I agree, Except number 10. Should be Adrian+Sydney<3, or maybe just Adrian as number 1:p. I would also add Artemis Fowl (though I think it's MG), and Scarlet.
    Fred and George= awesome!

  8. Such a great list! I agree especially with Sirius Black!

  9. Lovin' all the Luna love today!

  10. I love that you chose Wes!! And Rose/Dimitri, all excellent characters and some of my faves too!

  11. I love Brimstone. Definitely a highlight of Daughter of Smoke and Bone.

  12. Great choices! Fred and George are without a doubt hilarious!

  13. I love all the HP characters on your list! Rose is also on my list and I should have put Dmitri on there with her :)

    Karou and Brimstone are fantastic characters too and I did like Iko. Cinder was a wonderful book. Can't wait to read the next one.
