Fae Friday: mischievous characters

It’s already Friday again! Time is actually still going by pretty quickly, in my opinion. I have so many deadlines coming up, and instead I’m blogging, oops. Oh well, I wouldn’t want to miss Fae Friday!

As always, Fae Friday is a weekly blog tag created by The Caffeinated Fae. Faeries are often playful and mischievous creatures, so this week’s prompt is all about mischievous characters that have a special place in my heart! This prompt was co-created by The Artsy Reader.

This question is actually pretty hard for me to answer. Two characters eventually came to mind.

The first one is our favorite golden boy, Nikolai, from the Grishaverse books. I love characters like him. He kind of does what he wants, and he has that free-spiritedness in him. He was definitely one of my favorite characters from the original Grisha trilogy. I also feel like I’m the only one that shipped him and Alina, but oh well. Can’t wait for King of Scars 2 to come out next year!

The second character that came to mind was Iko from the Lunar Chronicles series. I love her innocence and her girly excitement. Again, she was one of my favorite characters in the series. She provided humor throughout the story, and kept it light and friendly. My favorite part is when she’s stuck being the ship’s AI, and she spies on literally everyone.

That’s all for today! A short and sweet post. Who are your favorite mischievous characters?

      Please do! King of Scars perfectly explains what even happened to Ravka after the Grisha trilogy ended, and the Lunar Chronicles are just so much fun🀩
