top ten Favorite Characters


Top Ten All Time Favorite Characters in Books

Featured Meme from The Broke and The Bookish

     1.      Elizabeth Bennet in Jane Austen’s Pride &Prejudice - Lizzy Bennet is the ultimate in perfect characters - she's intelligent and has a sharp wit, she's human and doesn't mind acknowledging that fact, and she fell for a man because of his house!
     2.      Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth in Persuasion by Jane Austen (they make such a wonderful couple and didn’t want to list a book twice!) - I love this tale of second-chance love.
     3.      Anne Frank in Diary of a Young Girl - This story has stayed with me for years - what an amazing girl in the face of such horror!
     4.      Einstein in Emily and Einstein by Linda Francis Lee - This quirky dog was great and made me wonder what my dog thinks.
     5.      Merlin in Once and Future King by T.H. White - Hey, I want this wizard on my side, teaching me how to be a better ruler - and a better person.
     6.      Evie, or Evelyn Green, in the Paranormalcy series by Kiersten White - She's sassy, she's smart - she's a teenager - and she carries a pink taser with rhinestones!
     7.      Mr. Bear in Edith and Mr. Bear – The Lonely Doll Series by Dare Wright - He's a wise bear with a big heart!
     8.      Bubbles Yablonsky in the Bubbles books by Sarah Strohmeyer - When I need a giggle, I turn to Bubbles to make me laugh!
     9.      Winnie-the-Pooh created by A.A. Milne - Who doesn't love a cuddly ol' bear all stuffed with fluff!
     10.   Warwick Lawton in A Weekend with Mr. Darcy by Victoria Connelly - He made the story!

     Looking forward to seeing who your all-time favorite book characters are!

  2. Elizabeth Bennet is on so many lists! I've never actually read the book. I've just seen the BBC version of the movie a ridiculous amount of times (considering how long it is!)

    My favorite Winnie-the-Pooh character is Piglet!

  3. Oh Winnie the Pooh!! I'm a fan of classic Pooh than the more modern one, but he's still such a great character!

  12. Evie! Normally, young characters annoy me. They can be too naieve, but there is something about Evie that made me fall complete in adoration with her :p Her witty humor and her behaviour, yes, I liked it. Can't wait for the third book :)
    And Winnie The Pooh, who doesn't love him? <3
