Top Ten Book Characters
By Tiffany King
1. Harry Potter (Harry Potter): Of course Harry Potter would top my list. He not only grew up before my eyes, but he also managed to save the Wizarding World. Think about it. He was born a celebrity and thrust into the spotlight as a child, so he could have turned out like Lindsay Lohan. Instead, he embodies all the attributes of a true hero: bravery, kindness, humility and perseverance.
2. Edward Cullen (Twilight Series): Sure, Bella could be annoying and whiny at times, but, through it all Edward was still amazing. He is everything a girl wants in the perfect guy: Handsome, strong, caring and loyal. Okay, not much of a sense of humor, but he wins extra points for literally having a rock hard body. Wink-Wink. Edward made girls believe in love and happily ever after.
3. Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games): Truthfully, I only really liked Katniss in the first two books since she pretty much lost it mentally in the last book. Granted, she experienced a great deal of loss in book three, but in the first book she was tough as nails and stood up for what she believed in. That is the Katniss I want to remember.
4. Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore (Harry Potter): Dumbledore and Harry had the perfect mentor/protégé relationship. He was wise enough to let Harry grow to be his own man, all while harboring the true secret of Harry's life. Even though he was a powerful wizard, Dumbledore still admired the human qualities that Harry possessed that Dumbledore himself had neglected throughout his own adolescent years. Plus, he also had the best lines ever."After all, to the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure."
5. Billy Coleman (Where the Red Fern Grows): He may be only ten years old, but Billy Coleman completely stole my heart when I was younger. He had a dream and he
worked harder than any other kid I had ever read about to reach that dream. Total
tearjerker, but still an amazing story.
6. Augustus Waters (The Fault in Our Stars): All I have to say about him is that he gave Amsterdam to Hazel Grace Lancaster which makes him the best book boyfriend ever. You'd have to read the story to see what I mean.
7. T.J Callahan (On the Island): He became a man right before our eyes and made us
swoon as he worked to show Anna Emerson that he was no longer a boy.
8. Claire Morgan (Seduction and Snacks): Sure, she had a complete gutter-mind, and
was completely inappropriate most of the time, but OMG, she was freaking hilarious. I can honestly say I have never laughed as hard as I did while reading Seduction and Snacks.
9. Josh Bennett (Sea of Tranquility): He was a loner and pretty much a quiet person, but oh how you come to love him as his story tugs at your heart. He was the kind of guy that will steal your heart without you even realizing it.
10. Jacob Black (Breaking Dawn): Jacob is a surprise entry since he drove me
absolutely batty in the first three books. Bella was Edward's love, plain and
simple. Breaking Dawn is by far my least favorite book in the series, but Jacob
completely redeemed himself in it. It was nice to finally get insight into his head and
to see the things he struggled with the most.
