Top Ten Favorite Favorite Characters

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the awesome people at The Broke and the Bookish
Top Ten Favorite Characters

10 - Eden from A Touch Trilogy by Leah Clifford - Eden is such an awesome main character, and I love how sarcastic she is!
9 - President Snow from The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins - He and Voldemort are tied for my favorite villain! He is just so cunning and cold!
8 - Voldemort from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling - How can someone be this evil? But he was so well written and had such awesome layers of villainy!
7 - Rue from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - Aww... little Rue. How did Collins make her be so unforgettable and someone you care about so much in such a short span of the book? I cry EVERY STINKIN' TIME I READ HER DEATH!
6 - Cinna from The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins - OMG! How could he be so awesome? Favorite side character ever!
5 - Cas from Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake - Favorite guy main protagonist of all time! He is seriously badass!
4 - Simon from The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare - Yes, I know I will get a lot of hate from people because I put Simon on this list and not Jace, but I found Simon a really fun character to read about and am glad the newer TMI books are more focused on him!
3 - Tris from The Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth - She is such a wonderfully, flawlessly written character. She has so much depth and is someone you never hesitate to root for!
2 - Tessa from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare - God, I love reading about her. She has such a great voice and can kick butt while wearing a corset. That takes skill.
1 - Katniss from The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins - I think I'll just let her speak for herself on this one. 


  1. Finally! Someone who agrees w/ me! Voldemort was a great character, even though he was evil. ^-^
    My TTT;

  2. I agree with ALL of your choices for The Hunger Games. I have to admit President Snow is pretty creepy in a good way. You don't get many villians that stack up to his level of evil awesom.

    Check out my giveaway if you can!

  3. I kind of never even entertained the idea of adding villains to my list - but I think I should have. Voldemort is a fantastic character!

    I think there needs to be a top 10 villains list... unless there has already.

    Great list this week!

  4. Simon was close on my list, but I haven't gotten to the latest trilogy yet, so he was (unfortunately) bumped down to Honorable Mention (along with Magnus). I never could stand Jace at all, so I applaud your decision ;D

    A Top Ten Villains list would be EPIC! Though, it'd be interesting to try and decide whether to rank them on 'favorites' or actually 'most evil'....

  5. I know what you mean about putting Simon instead of Jace -- I put Gale on mine, lol. But Katniss hit my number one as well! Yayy! Great post, and you have a new follower as well! Would love it if you could check mine out: My TTT.

  6. So agreed on THG characters. And also Tris! Awesome list!=D

    Drop by my Top 10?

  7. Some good ones here :)

  8. I like that you have favourite villains, didn't think of that one.
    We have someone in common :)

  9. I love that you picked villains! Voledemort is the best villain ever! Great list, Benji!

  10. I'm in complete agreement with your top 3! Most people say Clary over Tessa, but I'm a huge Tessa fan! :) Happy Tuesday!

  11. Haha I love how Voldemort made it on to your list! He is an incredibly well-written character!

  12. Great list! I love Rue too, I cannot believe I didn't think to put her on my list!

  13. So many good characters on your list! Love Cas and I'm glad to see some evil on your list!

  14. Voldemort and President Snow are two of the great villains! I completely agree about Rue and how well-written she is.

  15. I'm so happy you chose to feature villians!!! Voldemort will always be one of my favorite villains. just last week I found a new favorite villain, ferrum from the Iron fey trilogy.
    I also cry whenever i read Rue death scene!

  16. Actually I'd have included Voldemort and President Snow into my top ten least favorite characters, because they both give me creeps. But I totally agree with your choice of Cas and Katniss.

  17. Ahhhh, amazing list! Snow and Voldemort are definitely some of my favorite villians. Pure evil :D

    Katniss, Cinna, Rue, very nice!


  18. I agree with you in the first 4 in the list and Rue. =D

  19. Huh, I didn't think to put villains on there, but you're right - they can be great characters too. And I agree with your choices. I like how Voldemort is so complex, and his obsession with immortality is so interesting to read about.
    Also, how could anyone hate on Simon!?! He's awesome. I want to be best friends with him. Good choice. Tessa is also awesome.

  20. Oh, how fun! I love your choices! I think as my number #1 . . I would pick ...Adrian Ivashkov :) He is perfectly flawed along with his charming demeanor :D GOOD CALL ON TRIS! I love her!

  21. I love it when a book tears you up like #7 does for you. That there's good writing :)

  22. I completely agree with your list. Well just about. I haven't read the Touch series yet, so I don't know about Eden. The rest though. Yep, total agreement. I think in place of Eden since I don't know her yet, I would have to say Bryn from Raised by Wolves is pretty dang awesome. And I love, love, love Anna from Anna Dressed in Blood. Right along with Cas. I just loved that whole dang book. It blew me away.


  23. Yes! Simon is on the list! Hands down, he's the best written character in that series. Also, pretty much agree with this whole list. :)

  24. There's stars in my eyes when I see two characters by Cassandra Clare! :D

  25. President Snow- awesome. Rue- I agree completely. CINNA- I FLIPPING LOVE HIM. I cannot read anything about him anymore without, like, crying. He was so amazing and then he just . . . Cas- A guy protaganist I actually liked. You're right to say he's badass. I'm not going to say anything about Tris . . . And Katniss. How can anyone not love Katniss?


  26. Villains! Yes! :) TMI and THG are awesome!
