I’ve read a bunch of awesomesauce books this month, and I found myself thinking, Ooh, this character would be on my list of all-time favorite characters.
Then: Do I have a list?
I guess I do now.
Favorite Female Characters
Scarlett O’Hara (Gone with the Wind)
Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables et al)
Deryn Sharp (Leviathan)
Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games & Catching Fire)
Ruby Oliver (The Boyfriend List et al)
Honorable mentions: Hermione Granger, Scout Finch, Elizabeth Bennett
Favorite Male Characters
Henry Tilney (Northanger Abbey)
Peeta (Hunger Games & Catching Fire)
Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird)
Remus Lupin (Harry Potter series)
–Hmm, I can’t decide btw Cabel (Wake) and Seth (Wicked Lovely)
Honorable mention: Oscar Banks (Candor)
I just read Leviathan and Candor, and reread To Kill a Mockingbird, so those characters are particularly fresh in my mind. But I think they’re all valid, complex, interesting choices.
Who would be on your list?
