Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Characters in the Fantasy Genre

This amazing meme is brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish. ;)

I picked Fantasy because I think a lot of FANTASTIC characters are in them and they should be celebrated where all can see.  (There may be a few subgenres mixed in...)  Enjoy!  And link me up in the comments! :)

10.  Ella from Just Ella - An absolute favorite childhood read.  Still, to this day, magnificent.  And I just LOVE Ella.  And all her spunk.  She's also slightly cynical...which I love.

9.  Mo from Inkheart/spell/death - He's amazing.  Like, really truly amazing.  He's a wower.  The things he does...the person he becomes...I have so much respect for his character.

8.  Holly Claus from The Legend of Holly Claus - I just adore Holly from the bottom of my heart.  She's so sweet and kind and loving and brave.

7.  Tansy Miller from My Unfair Godmother - She's so adorable!  She makes me laugh so hard...not even just her, but the situations she gets herself into.  And all she is when she's with Hudson.  It's the greatest. :)

6.  Roran Stronghammer from Brisingr/Inheritance - I love this man.  And I love his love for his wife, and also his cousin, and also his people.

5.  100 Cupboards trilogy - I wanted to say ALL THE CHARACTERS.  I also wanted to narrow it down to 3.  Not happening.  So.  ALL THE CHARACTERS.

4.  Kelsey Hayes from Tiger's Saga - I love this chica!  She rocks my socks with her awesomeness and I kind of want to be her best friend.  No really.  And not just to drool over her husband, which would be totally awkward and highly inappropriate.

3.  Percy Jackson - You beautiful boy, you.  He's in the Heroes of Olympus and Percy Jackson and the Olympians and basically, he stole my heart.  Forever and always.

2.  JARED from Incarceron/Sapphique - I always capitalize his name.  Always.  He means so much to me.  He's one of the most beautiful characters ever created.

1.  Dustfinger from Inkheart/spell/death - I just KNOW you weren't expecting this one, riiiiiight????  Well, since it was probably OBVIOUS he would be the first, I guess I don't have to say much, do I?  Except I wish my name was Roxanne and that I would have his children.  But maybe that's too much?  Ok, shutting up now.


  1. Haven't read many of those, but totally want to check a few of them out, now. Great list! :D

    My TTT

  2. I absolutely agree about Dustfinger and Mo. :D

  3. I loved Holy Claus. I read the picture book to my girls even Christmas eve.

  4. I love your list! So many fabulous characters here. I really need to reread the Inkheart series. I didn't like the last book, but I think it's more because I wasn't in the mood than anything. I gave my copies away and now I wish I hadn't!

  5. It's so wonderful! I'm glad to hear someone else is reading it and passing it along :)

  6. YAY! Love it!!

  7. Awesome! I love hearing that from commenters! :)

  8. YAY! I'm so glad yo love the list! :) I love it too...obviously. haha ;)

    So, I'm considering doing an Ink-series readalong this summer....would you be interested? It'd be one book a month, June, July, August. I'd love it if you'd join me in this! We could even host it together :) Let me know what you think! You can shoot me an email, too, if you're *that* interested, at organica_11@hotmail.com

    NO worries if you're not, though...I just thought I'd put it out there :)

    Thanks for the comment, dear! <3

  9. So...I haven't read any of these. But some are on my TBR list! Thanks for sharing and stopping by!
