Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Secondary Characters


1. May from The Selection.  I love her exuberance and sweetness.  She seems like a futuristic fangirl, which I love.

2. Hazel Hale from Perfect Scoundrels.  We never actually meet her, but she plays such a huge part in Heist Society's third book, and I love the bits of her personality that we get.

3. Dr. Erland from Cinder.  He kind of irked me, but I ended up liking him in the end, and I have a feeling we're going to-and we need to!-see more of him in Cress and/or Winter.

4. Mrs. Bergson from The Mother-Daughter Book Club series.  She doesn't show up until Dear Pen Pal, but she is a wonderful character and a great female role model for the girls.  Loving, strong, successful...

5. Ella from Heroes of Olympus.  She is, without a doubt, the coolest harpy ever. (And I'm saying this like I've met so many.)  I like how nervous she is and how Hazel, Percy, and Frank care for her on their journey in The Son of Neptune.

6. Uriah from Divergent. He's just awesome in general, but I'm very bummed they've left him out of the first movie.

7. Hazel's parents from The Fault in Our Stars.  Supportive, loving parents seem so rare these days in YA fiction, although I can name some.  TFIOS is a good example of parents who are present in their children's lives and really care about them.

8. Emma in Time Between Us.  Kind of because she shares my name but also because she's a good friend to Anna, and a decision about her shapes a big moment in the book.

9. Catherine de Bourgh from Pride and Prejudice. Absolutely detest her.  But she's comical, memorable, and annoying all at the same time.

10. Valten from The Fairest Beauty.  I felt kind of sorry for him, but at the same time, I was rooting for who Sophie ended up with the whole time.

And there you have it!  My top ten favorite/most memorable secondary characters. :) Any you agree with?
