Top Ten Tuesday #7

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

This week's topic is Top Ten Favourite Characters in Books:

1. All the Characters from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, I can't for the life of me pick just one. As a kid these characters were like my fictional best friends the good ones and the bad ones.

2. Jamie and Claire Fraser from Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. I love the chemistry between the two and I love how they were written.

3. Stephanie Plum and the rest of the merry band of characters from Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. The characters ALWAYS have me cracking up!

4. Elena and Clay from Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. I love how those two always bicker with each other. It cracks m up, and the intensity they have for eacho other is so heated.

5. Captain Harding from Jules Verne's The Mysterious Island. I love the book and if I were ever to be stranded on an island with him (and Mr. Turning The Pages) I know we wouldn't die. A more resourceful character I've never met.

6. Deuce from Ann Aguirre's Enclave.
What an intense book and what an intense character.
I love her and think she's much more awesome than Katniss (Sorry folks!)

7. Mercedes Thompson from the Mercedes Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. I love how even though she's a smaller shifter she has a lot of strength.

8. Anita Blake from Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series
The woman is pure awesome!
She likes guns and can raise the dead.

9. Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino  from Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt series.
I love these books, Dirk and Al are so funny in the books I had to include them, I discovered them almost a decade ago and I never get tired of their adventures.

10. Myron and Win from Harlan Coben's Myron Bolitar series.
Harlan Coben gave both these guys wicked senses of humour I can't help but love them plus Win is a psycho and I happen to love that about him :)

Who are YOUR Top Ten Favourite Characters?


  1. I totally agree about Deuce - she's far more intense because her survival is daily, not a once-a-year contest version of survival. Elena & Clay are not on my list as they are on the lifetime list - characters that I will always buy the books for no matter what it's about… Sigh. I did put Jaime on the list though!

  2. I haven't read any of those series.. I have outlander.. mercy Thompson .. and anita Blake.. <3 autumn

  3. I couldn't even begin to name my top 10 fictional characters but from your list, I loved Elena - so super strong (not just physically either).

  4. Elena made my list too this week! I do love how she and Clay bicker - the books that they're in are always my favourite.

    Great picks!

  5. I know I had such a hard time picking just one from the potter books, they are all so great!


  6. Haha, I love how for HP you chose all of them. (: That's wonderful. Great post, and you have a new follower as well! Would love it if you could check mine out: My TTT.

  7. Totally agree with you on HP! I put Hermione on mine, but I totally love them all. Esp the Twins and Remus and Sirius!

    I haven't read Enclave yet, but I can't wait, and am excited to see what Deuce is like!

    My Top 10 Characters

  8. I love Myron and Win :) and Stephanie Plum makes me laugh. I adore your blog heading and background, its pretty amazing and I am a new follower

  9. Nice little cheat with HP, but I can't blame you for it at all! Great list.

  10. I couldn't pick a Harry Potter character either...although I went with Sirius so I could show a sexy picture of Gary Oldman!

    My TTT:

  11. The Harry Potter characters had to be on my list too, but I picked three of them before I placed them. Have a reall nice Tuesday, and I liked to visit your blog. Nice template/design.

  12. We've got some overlap on our lists in Outlander and Harry Potter! I haven't read a bunch of the other books on yours, but they sound interesting!

    Here's my Top Ten Tuesday!

  13. I love Harry Potter and Outlander! I didn't end up putting Jamie or Claire on my list, but they were definitely close. I haven't read some of the others, but I'm intrigued especially about Enclave.

  14. Deuce is one of my favorites as well!

  15. YES at everyone from Harry Potter - I couldn't choose just one character for my list either! I really want to read Enclave, I've heard it's amazing!

    My Top Ten

  16. I have not read any of these. Although I need to read the Harry Potter books. My Step Son has all of them here at our house.

    Top Ten Tuesday

  17. Jamie & Claire ^^ I liked them. I haven't read all the books yet (stopped after the third, I believe.. I'm still going to catch up, because the books are awesome)

    and ofcourse Harry Potter and all the characters! I managed to pick one, because he is the one I always liked so much, but I could all write them on my list :) Old friends.

  18. I agree with you about the Harry Potter series I considered almost every character for my list but I ended up choosing Luna.

  19. Stephanie Plum made my list too...along with Ranger and Joe yum! oh sorry, got carried away... Great list.
