Today's topic is: Top ten most memorable secondary characters
Instead of focusing on single memorable secondary characters, I decided to do books that have great secondary characters in general.
Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty
I love Jessica and Marcus, the stars of this series, but I also love the members of the "Clueless Crew", the three girls that Jessica is stuck with after her best friend moves away: Bridget, Sarah, and Manda. Also Scotty, the football player she went out with in junior high; "Pepe", the freshman in her French class that has a crush on her; Paul, the senior she crushes on who inadvertently leads her to college in NY; Hy, the new girl who's hiding a huge secret. I love this series so much and cannot recommend it enough if you haven't read it.
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
The Garretts! Especially George.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
From the powerful magicians pulling the string to the performer of the circus to the young boy who is dared to wonder into the gates during the day. This book is-there is no other word-magical.
Nantucket Blue by Leila Howard
I loved the people at the inn where she worked and the boy who eventually turned into her love interest.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Haymitch, Effie, Cinna, Rue, Prim. And on and on and on. Seriously.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Oh, those raven boys. I love each one in his own way.
Twilight by Stephanie Meyers
Harry Potter by JK Rowling
I mean, right? The Wesleys, the Dursleys, Dumbledore, Malfoy, Snape, etc, etc, etc.
The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien
Gandalf, Sam, Tom Bombadil. Again, and on and on.
Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld
This book here. I cannot even explain the depth in which this author delves. Secondary characters galore.
So those are my choices for books full of memorable secondary characters. What books or characters make your list? Link me up!
