Fave Reads of 2011 (So Far) -- The Characters

inkcrush is hosting these awesome little awards. I love lists, so I thought I would join in.

1. best female POV
Do you know how tough that question is? Well, I want to feature a new book, so how about Kate from The Liar Society.

2. best male POV
I don't read a lot of male POV, so that makes things a bit easier. But still, Adam from Where She Went? Pretty epic.

3. best couple <3
Rose & Dimitri? Chloe & Derek? Tris & Four? Oh man, I could go on. Too many to choose from!

4. who i so want to be best friends with
I already gushed about her in the previous post, but definitely Evie from Paranormalcy. She's adorable, I love her! She would be a great friend, too.

5. who i fell completely in love with (new literary crush)
Jonah Griggs from Jellicoe Road. Um, yah. But I seriously cannot overlook Adrian or Zachary.

6. worst (best) villian
I had to stop and think about who would be considered an out and out villain. Valentine definitely made the list. What a d-bag.

7. best character twist (who you loved then hated or vice versa)
I really can't think of any extreme examples, but how about Steldor from Legacy? At first I hated him because the main character goes on and on about how much she can't stand him, but then I kind of grew to like him. He has ambition (but not in a zealous way) and he's actually a decent guy underneath his ego. I mean, he puts up with Alera's shenanigans, so there you go.

8. best kick-arse female
Is it Tris or Saba? I'll say it's a tie because I love them both and don't want them to have to fight it out.

9. best kick-arse male
Definitely Four. I mean, Four. The significance of his name kind of says it all, but then there's his beliefs and his steadfastness and his strength (etc).

10. broke your heart the most
Probably Adam in Where She Went.

11. best/worst character names
Linden is pretty bad, isn't it? Gabry and Catcher are pretty annoying, too. Love the name Aura, and Merista is very pretty as well.

BONUS: 5 fave covers (from books i have read)


  1. You've picked some great ones there!

    I'm a new follower - I love your blog :D

  2. I so have not read The Liar Society yet but have heard some really good comments.

    I also chose Valentine as worst (best) villain. How can you get any better than creepy father with major world take over issues?

  3. Yay for Adam from WSW <3!!! And I love the cover for Blood Red Road. Great list.

  4. The Wither cover is gorgeous! I've heard lots of people say they loved Where She Went, and the first one made me cry oh so much. I shall pick it up soon.

    great picks here!

  5. Adam is a pretty popular choice, and that makes me super happy. I love him.

    And I can't believe I haven't been able to get through Jellicoe Road yet. I need to give it another shot soon.

    Fun choices. Thanks for sharing.

    My List

  6. Chloe and Derek, Chloe and Derek! I LOVE them. And I like the name Linden. I just don't like it for a boy. Yeuch.

  7. i CANNOT believe i forgot about Saba's kick-arse-ary! she really rocks

    and JONAH (!!!!) <3

    i agree with Adam in WSW being COMPLETELY epic <3

  8. This reminds me that I really need to finish the Vampire Academy series.

  9. I am planning to read Jellicoe Road in my Denmark holidays, I'm couting the days-30!
    And I didn't know that Where She Went is told from a male POV! I really want to read If I Stay+ Where She Went soon.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment; I appreciate each one!
