* Top Ten Tuesday * Characters I'm Unhealthily Attached To

 
 
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, where we get to reveal our top ten of whatever they chose as the weekly topic! Click here for a list of future topics.

 

 
 

Come on, admit it. You guys were shocked to see a girl at the bottom of the list and figured I was just in this for the swoons. HAH. Nope. This list is genuinely of characters I think are fantastically written! I'm obviously far less shallow than you guys thought ;)

So, what fictional folks rock your boat?


 



Allie is a Pimm's-obsessed reader, who dreams of road tripping over America, learning to surf & becoming fluent in all the languages of her heritage (which, sadly, does not include Elvish). If she's not reading or blogging, you can find her catching up on Teen Wolf, or reigning supreme with Scrabble/Mario Kart. Stalk her on twitter, instagram or goodreads.

  1. Gansey :') Noah, Xander, Chubs (though, Liiiiiammm!!!!), Cinder, Four--all some of my favorite characters. I must meet the others ;) Ha! And I love the character buttons you made for this post :) My other fictional favorites include Allison from The Immortal Rules, Chaol Westfall, Christian Ozera, Lola from Lola and the Boy Next Door, Holder from Hopeless and Isaiah, Ronan, CONNOR COBALT from the Addicted Series (or his own book Kiss the Sky) and many, many more :D

    1. Yes Liam! I do adore that boy but Chubs is just . . . Well, Chubs! The ending of The Darkest Minds KILLED me. So when I read the sequel I was so happy!!

  2. I'm obsessed with various Harry Potter characters...like Luna Lovegood and Draco Malfoy. I know, not the usual picks. haha

    1. Draco Malfoy! I was totally obsessed with him back in the day. May have been the author of a bit of Draco fanfiction :P

  3. Ooh nice topic! Looove Four. I liked Zombie as well, but totally blanking on the second guy's name and remembering which one I really loved. Yeah, that's sad since I read it not too long ago. This year even! I have yet to meet Noah, but he's in my TBR mountain!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Ohhh you mean Evan? Honestly, I wasn't a huge Evan fan. Though I know the story will have him as the lead love interest, I'm still rooting for Zombie. Because, really, HOW COULD I NOT?!

  4. Great topic!

    Gus puts most men who are more than half his age to shame! He's smart, kind, funny, and just bursting with romantic gestures. I just loved him! I cannot wait for the film release this summer!

    1. Gus is the man to end all men. Seeing him on the big screen is going to be fricken amazing! And how cool will it be to see Q from Paper Towns as well? I can't believe two of my favourite John Green novels are getting movies

  5. Augustus, Noah, Gansey, Four, Xander. *swoon* They ARE fantastically written. I wish I'd known about this topic because it's so interesting! Also, Cinder is definitely a wonderfully written character.

    1. Cinder is one of my favourite female protagonists! Marissa Meyer just made her some complex and just downright awesome

  6. I´m unhealthily attached to Adrian Ivashkov... I love a lot of characters of another books but Adrian is mine. :)

    1. Noah Shaw is amazing. And so hilarious! Admittedly, he's one of the main reasons I love the Mara Dyer books - just such a brilliant, caring, multi-layered character.

      And Gansey . . . well, there are no words <3

  11. This was a fun topic! HECK YES Four, Cinder, and Gansey. My friend is all about Ronan so it's nice to find someone else who likes Gansey ;)

    1. Ohh I do love a bit of Ronan too, but Gansey has my heart forever.

      Ronan and Adam need to become a thing. Their chemistry is off the charts.

    1. Xander made The Distance Between Us one of my favourite romance reads!

  13. I just loved how you included a female on this list, Cinder definitely! Zombie is such an odd name for a character, I'm going to have to read the book to find out. And YES to Gus, of course. I need to read the Raven Boys, it's on my shelf! Wonderful post Allie!

    1. If there was going to be a girl, that girl had to be Cinder. She's one of the best written females in fiction, as far as I'm concerned.

      Ohhhh, you haven't read The 5th Wave? You'll like it! I think it's a really cool, unique dystopian. So many twists and turns - I was on my toes throughout. Plus it was nice to read something which wasn't all about blaming the government.

      And . . . you haven't read The Raven Boys . . . you don't know about Gansey and Ronan and . . . I just can't. Jeann, it's my favourite book! Go read it right this second missy!

  14. LOVE Gansey! I just saw the new cover for book 3 and it is fantastic! I have a soft spot for Ronan too though :) I love everyone in the Lunar Chronicles!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    1. That COVER. Oh, God. Maggie's books are genuinely so beautiful!

      Oh, I totally love Ronan as well. Such an intricate character. His relationship with Kavinsky was one of my favourite things in The Dream Thieves.

      Delete
  15. YES to Gansey! When I saw your title in BL, while I was waiting for it to load I was thinking of mine and he was the only one I came up with off the top of my head! Four is a good choice, also! Fun list!

    1. Gansey is my favourite fictional character! Maggie just has a knack for writing these wonderfully developed people

  16. DEXTERRRRRR omg I totally understand why you're 'unhealthily attached to' him. Such an adorable boyfriend! And Chubs, yeah, that guy would make a terrific bestfriend (LIAM, though, SWOOOOOOOONS)
    Lots of commenters mentioned Gansey, now I'm a bit curious to read Raven Cycle ;)

    1. Liam is amazing! I missed him so much in the second book and wish he could've played a bigger role. Fingers crossed for book three though!

      Dude, check out The Raven Cycle books asap. They're just phenomenal!
