Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and TheBookish.
Since my blog is equal YA and fiction I’ve decided to break it down in equal parts.
Top 5 YA Contemporary Characters
Park [Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell]
Park is someone I would’ve totally fallen for back in the day. A guy who could make me a mean mixtape wins my heart.
Dash [Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohen & David Levithan]
I like a guy who’s a bit of a smart-ass. I like that he would keep you on your toes.
Allie [The Vinyl Princess by Yvonne Prinz]
When her vinyl collection is described I knew I meant my kindred spirit.
Katniss [The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins]
For her strong fearless self.
Mia [If I Stay by Gayle Forman]
The struggle she deals with deciding to fight or let go is haunting. Very touching.
Top 5 Fiction Characters
Ingrid [White Oleander by Janet Fitch]
For being a mean ruthless mom who even when in jail still has control over her daughter.
Holden [The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger]
One of my fave coming of age characters.
Every character [To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee]
Simply put… perfection!
Sidney [In The After by Ashley Mackler-Paternostro]
For being the ultimate keeper of secrets and for truly being a best friend.
Landon [A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks]
The bad boy with the heart of gold. All the things he did for Jamie just made me cry. I want a guy like that.
That’s my Top Ten…what’s yours?
