Happy Sunday! I decided to participate in a Six for Sunday post for today, as I haven’t posted in a while now… But I also haven’t finished a book in a hot minute either, so I hardly have anything to talk about! Thank god for weekly tags…
Anyway, Six for Sunday is hosted by A Little But A Lot, and you can find all the prompts per quarter year there! I like how every month has a certain theme, and since this month’s theme is series, the prompt is: your favorite characters from series.
Zuzana – Daughter of Smoke and Bone
If you’ve read my last Fae Friday post, you’ll already know how much I love Zuzana. She’s just so likable. The perfect best friend honestly, since she doesn’t give up on Karou once. She also just seems like someone I would totally hang out with!
Spensa – Skyward
I have a thing for weird characters. They’re usually the most funny and interesting ones, and Spensa is no exception. She’s also relentless. She has a goal and doesn’t stop until she’s achieved it. Spensa has one of the most interesting characters arcs I’ve read in a long time, too. It definitely isn’t a straight line, and I love how she further develops in Starsight, the second book.
Lila Bard – Darker Shades of Magic
Okay, aside from the funny and relatable characters, I also love a good badass character. Bonus points of they’re female. Lila Bard is all of those things, obviously. I haven’t met a reader yet who didn’t immediately like her. I love how out of all possible career paths to choose from, she chose to be a pirate.
Nina Zenik – Six of Crows
I mean, I really love all characters from Six of Crows, but Nina takes the cake (haha, that’s a pun). Utterly relatable, kind, but also a badass, she’s one of those characters people can look up to. She’s been through a lot in the series, but she never strayed from her path.
Nikolai Lantsov – Grisha Trilogy/King of Scars
My absolute favorite character from the Grisha world. Probably one of my favorite characters, from any book ever. If he would suddenly be real and walk into a party, I’d probably fall in love, let’s be real. Also, I know there’s a lot of Alina+Darkling shippers out there, but for me, Alina+Nikolai will forever be endgame.
Jude Duarte – The Folk of the Air
Last, but certainly not least, is Jude. I like her character on a different level than I like all the others in this post. All the above are mostly decent, good, friendly characters. Jude kinda… is not that. I like her more because I thought it was kind of refreshing to read about a main protagonist who wasn’t nice and friendly all the time. I really enjoyed all the crueler characters in this series. So I guess I don’t like her because she’s relatable, but more because she’s a well developed character, that does what she needs to survive.
