Thank you to The Book Voyagers for giving me this PERFECT idea. I am so lucky to have friends with really creative brains.
This is actually perfect because I ADORE secondary characters, sometimes more than I actually like the main character, and that isn’t necessarily because the main character is boring or annoying, I just usually relate to the Secondary characters more.
- Nehemia from Throne of Glass
-We didn’t get much time with her and she was my favorite.
- Jamie from The Mara Dyer Trilogy
-Such a snark and a really loyal friend.
- Kenji from Shatter Me
-Can you imagine an entire book narrated by a snarky pervert? Oh, shit, that sounds a lot like Deadpool….
- James from The Orphan Queen
-He’s just such a lovable muffin.
- Chubs or Suzume from The Darkest Mind
-They were both so adorable and interesting and my sweet little children ❤
- Nikolai from The Grisha Trilogy
-Okay, but who DOESN’T want a book narrated by Nikolai?
- Tolya and Tamar from The Grisha Trilogy
-I think I’m alone on this, but when I was reading those books, those two were my favorites.
- Vee from Hush, Hush
-Apparently a lot of people hated Vee, I, however, LOVED her. So down with the “loyal friend” trope, thing.
- Lucien from A Court of Thorns and Roses
-Guys, come on, imagine that book threw Lucien’s POV and all of your troubles will go away.
- Simon Lewis from The Shadowhunter Chronicles
-Okay I know we have Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy but, man do I ever want more Simon Lewis. Although he did give me unrealistic expectations of male friends…
- Christina from Divergent
-It would’ve been so much more interesting.
- Graystripe from The Warrior Series
-I know he got the Manga, but I’ve always been interested in Graystripe.
- Zuzana From Daughter of Smoke and Bone
-I saved the best for last! Okay so Zuzana was my FAVORITE character in those books, it wasn’t that I didn’t like Karou or Akiva I did (Karou more than Akiva) but Zuzana was just so funny and cute and when I read the short story about her and Mik I DIED I love them so much!
Okay, so really my love for secondary characters knows no bounds and even if I hate a book, it really just needs amazing secondary characters for me to get through. It’ll still get a low rating though 😀
So who are some of your favorite secondary characters? Any you wish had a book of their own?
