Top Ten Tuesday - 97

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish for bloggers who like to make lists about books.

Top Ten Secondary Characters

1. Simon Lewis - The Mortal Instruments
I just saw City of Bones last night and it reminded me how much I love Simon! First off, he's adorable. He's also hilarious and such a loyal friend to Clary.

2. The Weasley Twins - Harry Potter Series
They weren't in a whole lot of scenes but whenever they were they stole the show. Fred and George would just pop up with the best one-liners and were just awesome characters.

3. Willie - Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
There were a lot of great secondary characters in this novel, but Willie was definitely the best. She's like a mother to Josie, even though she's the madam of a brothel in New Orleans. What a kick-butt character.

4. Magnus Bane - The Mortal Instruments & The Infernal Devices
The actor that plays the warlock in the movie is amazing! Just how I pictured him! It helps that the character is so awesome in both series.

5. Cinna - The Hunger Games
I love Cinna, especially because he helps Katniss succeed in the Games and isn't afraid to stand up for what's important.

6. Jeb - The Host
Jeb is the crazy uncle who carries a shotgun around, but he's actually pretty savvy and clever. He's also understanding and open-minded, even letting an "alien" enter the compound.

7. Hana - Requiem by Lauren Oliver
She's not a big character in the first two books in the trilogy, but she gets her own narration in the last novel. I loved Hana's parts because they were something different but also I liked seeing her figure out the mystery of her fiancé and ultimately become a strong character.

8. Willem - Just One Day by Gayle Forman
He's an important part of the story but isn't really in the book that much. Even though he breaks LuLu's heart, I still think he was an enigmatic character that I'd like to know more about.

9. Kartik - The Gemma Doyle Trilogy
Kartik is the main love interest throughout the trilogy, but his presence is very sparse. When he does show up, it's amazing though!

10. Lacey - Sometimes It Happens by Lauren Barnholdt
She becomes friends with Hannah, the protagonist, and their relationship is contrasted with Hannah's friend Ava, who is not a very good friend. Lacey is a hypochondriac but it just makes her character more interesting!

Cinna makes my list as well. He's a great character. Good list!

Willie's on my list, too. I loved her because she was a good person under her crusty exterior. Not a saint by any means, but a woman who came through for the people she loved.

Totally agree with Magnus, Simon, and The twins...
