This week is 

Top Ten Characters Who Are Memorable

So without further ado, and in no particular order….

* Kat Bishop (from Heist Society by Ally Carter) - I loved Kat, she was an amazing heroine. She's smart, relatable, quiet, observant, loyal - I'd totally want her as a best friend. Also did I mention she's a teenager who mastermind's a heist?

* Roux (from Also Known As by Robin Benway) - Roux is so fun - she's quirky, sassy and definitely has spunk. I love how Roux is a bit all over the place with her thoughts and how excitable she is. I also find Roux endearing, she's loyal and strong - but she also has a softer, more vulnerable side. She is definitely charming and someone I would want to hang out with in real life. 

* Abby (from Crash Into You by Katie McGarry) - I loved Abby. I don't even know how to put Abby into words but I loved her. The funny thing is this book is not about Abby, she is a secondary character - and yet, I kept looking for her and I wanted more! I hope Abby gets her own book, she 100% deserves one she is just awesome. 

* George, King of Thieves (from the Alanna/Song of the Lioness books by Tamora Pierce) - George is amazing, he is loyal, smart, witty, charming and completely endearing. George was the King of Thieves who befriends young Alan of Trebound and is a good friend to Alanna throughout the books. I just loved him and always look forward to re-reading the books and seeing him again :)

* Heather Wells (from Size 12 is Not Fat, and the other Heather Wells Mysteries by Meg Cabot) - Hmmm, how to describe Heather? Well, she's fun, light-hearted, funny, a bit sassy and definitely loyal. I love Heather - I want her as a best friend - she never fails to cheer me up and make me laugh. 

Plus, I quotes like this…
“Wait. Why am I thinking about Krispy Kremes? We’re supposed to be exercising.” 

* Fred & George Weasley (from the Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling) - Oh Fred and George how I love you two mischief makers. You can't help but love them - I wish I had gone to school with them (in more ways than one - oh Hogwarts!). Who wouldn't love to see their mischievous ways and pranks? These two are hilarious and by far some of my favorite characters from the books.

* Keladry (from Protector of the Small series by Tamora Pierce) - I love Kel, I thought she had great spirit and was always very true to herself. I like that she was loyal, passionate, and not afraid to be herself and fight for what she believed in.

* Xemerius (from the Ruby Red trilogy by Kerstin Gier) - Who doesn't love a demon, gargoyle that moves around and talks a lot? Xemerius was funny, I found him amusing and always looked forward to his scenes as he always added some lovely comic relief. I loved his comments and little commentaries, I also enjoyed his love of romance novels. 

* Finnick Odair (Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins) - Well if you haven't read the books, I'd hate to spoil him - so I'll try to keep this brief. Finnick was one of the previous Hunger Game champs - he's charming and there is a lot more to him than meets the eye. I admired Finnick and found him to be pretty amazing.

* Lula & Ranger (from the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich) - Yes I'm cheating and I have two here. Lula is awesome because she's hilarious - she also thinks she's pretty kick butt and she definitely tries. I wouldn't mess with Lula - she can track down bad guys while eating her bucket of fried chicken and she's not afraid to use a taser. Ranger is just - Ranger. Mysterious, intriguing, strong and someone I would never want to mess with. I love Ranger! (hence the amazing name for one of the doxies)
