Top Ten All Time Favorite Characters In Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic:  Top Ten All Time Favorite Characters in Books

1.) Claire and Jamie from Outlander- I don't know how anyone can read the Outlander books and not come away adoring Claire and Jamie.
2.) Tatiana and Alexander from The Bronze Horseman-Tania and Shura are much like Claire and Jamie, I can't help loving them.
3.) Kira Argounova from We the Living-I think Kira is a fantastic character; I may not have always agreed with her actions but she did what she had to do no matter what other people thought.  She also stood up for her beliefs when it was definitely not the time or place to be doing so.
4.) Guy Montag from Fahrenheit 451-I loved watching Montag's transformation from a book burner to book enthusiast; seeing him realize that what he had been doing was wrong and then taking a stand against it was awesome.
5.) Katniss from The Hunger Games-Katniss is a total BAMF, so of course she is one of my favorite characters.
6.) Lestat from The Vampire Chronicles-Oh Lestat, you were my first vampire crush.  You are still the coolest literary vampire I know. 
7.) Prince Andrei Bolkonskii from War and Peace-Prince Andrei wasn't even one of the main characters in this book but for some reason, I really liked him.  I think it was the fact that he was a mix of strong and fragile that sucked me in.
8.) Elphaba from Wicked
9.) Big Jim Rennie from Under the Dome- I don't like Big Jim because he was such a nice, admirable character.  I like him because he was the ultimate bad guy.  Stephen King made me hate him so much that I had restrain myself from throwing that giant book at the wall. 
10.) Lisbeth Salander from the Millenium trilogy-Another BAMF, a little rough around the edges but still very likeable.

That's my list!  Are any of these on your list?  Leave me a link so I can check out who your favorite characters are.


  1. I will need to think about this - how are you enjoy the SK book? Is this your first time reading it?

    1. This is the first time I am reading it and I am enjoying it. I read 'The Gunslinger' last year and didn't love it. This one is much better!

  2. Great list. Lestat is definitley one of the coolest vampires!!

  3. First time I have seen Guy Montag from Fahrenheit 451 on a list. Great choice! I actually liked reading that one in high school.
    My Top Ten

  4. Oooh, what an original list! You've got some great picks.

  5. Katniss is a must! :) Happy Tuesday!

  6. I'm reading Outlander for the first time RIGHT NOW! I know, I might be one of 10 people left who haven't jumped in before now. I'm only a little over 100 pages in, but I already love Claire and Jamie. Claire is so great because she's sassy! I hope that lasts.

    1. Yay! I am so glad you are enjoying it! It's one of my all time favorite series.

  7. Okay I had to look up BAMF, and laughed so hard! I agree with you though, and great list.

    Feel free to check out my list :)

  8. Thanks so much for stopping by and loving John Coffey as much as I do. I have to agree that Lisbeth is a kick-a** a** kicker. Love her.
