Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This weeks topic is the Top Ten Most Memorable Secondary Characters!
1. Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices
Although I’d now class his as a main character, he started out as a secondary character. I just love everything about him. His humour, his flamboyant style, his love of glitter and Shadowhunters with black hair and blue eyes… It’s safe to say that Cassandra Clare’s books would not be the same without him and he has turned out to be just as popular, if not more so, than some of the main characters.
2. Nikolai Kretzsky from Between Shades of Gray
Kretzsky was the character that, although he was meant to be disliked, I knew that he wasn’t like the rest of the NKVD officers in this book. His story and his character development is a very important one. Little note for you all: if you haven’t read this book, READ IT.
3. Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter
Oh, Neville. He’s the underdog that you root for constantly through the Harry Potter books. I loved reading his clumsy, blundering moments. It was great to see him get his moment to shine in the last book!
4. Finnick Odair from The Hunger Games trilogy
Do you have any idea how much I cried over Finnick in Mockingjay? I loved him from the moment he came sauntering up to Katniss in that loincloth, offering that damn sugar cube. With his humour and his love for Annie, what’s not to love about Finnick?
5. Haymitch from The Hunger Games
This series just wouldn’t have been the same without our favourite drunk, Haymitch. He provided humour to the story at times, but there was also so much more to his character.
6. Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter
Another secondary Harry Potter character that I need to express my love for. Although she’s introduced as the ‘crazy’ characters, I knew that there was going to be more to her than meets the eye. I love how sweet and positive she is.
7. Mason Ashford from the Vampire Academy
Every YA series needs that funny, adorable guy that harbours a crush on the protagonist. Mason was that character and I loved him.
8. Severus Snape from Harry Potter
Yep, another Harry Potter character. How can I not mention Snape? His story in the Deathly Hallows caused so many tears!
9. Dave the Laugh from the Georgia Nicholson books by Louise Rennison
I know he’d probably classed as a main character by the end, but for the first half of the series, poor Dave was the little underdog. I rooted for him so much.
10. CeeCee Webb from The Mediator Series
It’s no secret that I love The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot. I love CeeCee throughout the books. She is the type of friends I’d love to have around. She doesn’t care what people thinks and I love that about her.
