30 Days of Books Days Day 15 & 16


I've totally lost track of where I'm supposed to be on this but since everyone participating is all over the place I've decided not to feel bad. Day 15 and 16 had similar prompts so I've decided to put them together.

Day 15: Favorite male character

I tried! I really tried to pick just one of these three but I can't! Left to right: Cassel from the Curse workers series. Love this kid! He's smart, kind and wickedly cool! Matthew Swift from the Matthew Swift series. I think I love what he's possessed with more than him but, no, that's not true. The way he handles it is all him! Love it! Odd Thomas from the Odd Thomas series. Odd is the most humble, sweet, tries-to-do-the-right-thing guy, you'll ever meet. I love this kid!

Day 16: Favorite female character


This was a hard one. Not because I had so many to choose from, though. I actually can pick out a hundred more male characters I love but female characters...I have a hard time with. I won't go into detail on why (post for another day, perhaps?) but I do admire Anne Elliot from Persuasion. Yes, once, when she was younger she let her family and friends influence her but she amends that. She's kind, humble, responsible and patient and I look up to her, I really do!

  3. Yeah, don't feel bad. I'm glad that people are participating even if we're not all on the same prompts. :)

    And, since I have my posts scheduled through day 26, I had a hard time picking a favorite female character too. It was much easier to pick a favorite male.

  5. One of these days I really should go and read some Holly Black. I've heard so many good things about her.

  6. Odd Thomas is definitely a unique character. I've still only read the first book in the series -- I need to move on with it. I've never read PERSUASION. One of these days!

  8. Kudos for narrowing your characters down to favorites. This would be SO hard! I don't think I could pick.

  10. I like these lists. Now you have me thinking. I think my favorite female character is Lisbeth Salendar from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I think my favorite male character is Jack Reacher. Thanks for giving me something to think about :)

  11. This is one of Austen's work that I haven't read but I should definitely add to my TBR. I think my favorite female character is Hermione.

  12. Odd Thomas is one of my all time favorite book characters ever, so I totally agree with you on that!

    I'm not sure who my favorite female character is... I guess Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bones series, or any of the female characters in The Night Circus. ;)
