Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This list was so hard. It’s rare for me to truly dislike a book – I’m either really lucky in my picks or just do a great job of avoiding ones I don’t think will do it for me. And when I do hate books, it’s usually because there’s not a single likable character to be found or I don’t remember any of the characters.
For this theme, I’m going to choose characters I appreciated in books that weren’t favorites of mine – which only means, if a book is on this list, it’s not one of the few books on my favorites shelf. There are a good handful in here I actively disliked … and some characters whose names I honestly can’t remember … but for the most part, plenty of these were decent reads with characters that stood out to me for one reason or another.
