Top Ten Tuesday: My 10 Favorite Secondary Characters

I thought I was going to skip this week's TTT on The Broke & The Bookish because I couldn't really think of any secondary characters that I loved. But then I started reading other people's posts and saying "oh yeah! I forgot about him!" or "I love her!" so I figured I'd better start my own list. :) Some of these you've probably seen several times already but maybe there's one or two that reminds you of your love for those in the backgrounds.

  1. Neville or Luna (Harry Potter) --As always, I could have probably done my whole list on Harry Potter. (One of these days, I might just do that lol.) But these two are the ones who pop up first in my head after the trio. They had such depth and growth with their stories you can't help but love them (and wish they had ended up together).

  2. Diana or Matthew (Anne of Green Gables) --Diana Barry is the perfect BFF. Period. And Matthew...oh, I loved Matthew so much. That's about all I can say lol.

  3. Iko (Cinder) --I really need to get Scarlet, I'm not sure why I've been putting it off. I loved this little robot friend though with her fascination with girly things. :)

  4. Claire Pike (Baby-Sitters Club) --any of the Pike kids really, but Claire is my favorite. I mean come on:  "...streaked up the stairs, waggling her head and crying "Moo!" Was she calling her mother or making cow sounds? Did it matter? This was definitely going to be one of Claire's sillier days." Hilarious.

  5. Minny (The Help) --like I said in my review, I felt that Minny was much more fleshed out than Aibileen and I just loved her attitude. :)

  6. Mr Bennett (Pride & Prejudice) --Elizabeth's father may get pushed to the sidelines over her loud, overly dramatic mother, but he was one of my favorite characters. He had such a dry wit and quiet sarcasm sometimes.

  7. Casy (The Grapes of Wrath) --I felt that this preacher's story was too short. I wanted to know all about him, what really led him to leave the church (besides wanting to be with a bunch of women lol), how he managed to escape the dirty cops, what he could have accomplished if he hadn't died so suddenly.

  8. Fezzik (The Princess Bride) --by and far, my favorite character in this book and the movie. From my review:  Oh Fezzik, you break my heart with your gentle giantness and rhyming words. I would read a whole book just about Inigo and Fezzik growing old together. (Artwork by b-maze on deviantART)

  9. Cinna or Finnick (Hunger Games) --I've only read this series once, right when Mockingjay was coming out, so I don't remember a whole lot of details. But I know I loved these 2 guys. I'm planning a reread soon and I can't wait to see how they stand up in my memory.

  10. Dee (Just One Day) --I hope Dee shows up in the second book at some point. I just really love him. He's such a good person and friend.


  1. Ooh Casy from Grapes of Wrath! I forgot about him, but now that you mention it, he was quite fascinating. I put Finnick and Luna on my lists as well. I could definitely do an HP list one of these days.

  2. Iko was on my list too! And you should definitely read Scarlet, it's fantastic. I loved both Cinna and Finnick. Great list! ~Pam
