Top Ten Tuesday

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is “Ten Characters Everyone Loves but I Just Don’t Get” or “Ten Characters I Love but Others Seem to Dislike” as per The Broke and Bookish.

Again, I’m going to have to tweak my list.  I have no idea for the first theme but I can easily tell you ten characters I love, but I do not know if others dislike them or not.  So, my Top Ten Tuesday theme this week is “Ten Characters I Love”.

  1.  Atticus Finch of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. He is a wonderful, wise, loving father and exceptional role model, not only for his own children but for the entire community.
  2. Peeta of Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins.  Peeta is a sweet, devoted, loving and protective love interest.  He is the kind of love interest I believe every woman dreams of.
  3. Lucy of The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis.  She is brave, intelligent, innocent and kind-hearted.
  4. Samwise Gamgee of The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkien.  Sam is honest, faithful, loyal, wise and innocent.  He is the kind of friend everyone needs.
  5. Einstein, the golden retriever in Watchers by Dean Koontz.  Einstein is a highly intelligent, faithful dog.  All dog lovers would love to have a dog like Einstein.
  6. Dave Richman of The Negotiator of the O’Malley series by Dee Henderson.  He is a strong, intelligent, protective man.
  7. Jarrod Monahan of Kissed by a Cowboy by Debra Copton.  Jarrod is witty, charming, sexy, strong, and romantic.  He knows just how to warm a woman’s heart.
  8. Jake Bloom of Fire and Water by Betsy Graziani Fasbinder.  Jake is brilliant.  He’s an exceptional artist.  He is a romantic, loving husband.  He’s also temperamental and dangerous because he is tortured by a mental/emotional illness.
  9. Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck of A Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Devereaux.  Nicholas is exactly what the title of the book says he is and this is one of the greatest romance stories I have ever read.
  10. Jean ValJean of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.  Jean ValJean is a man who is strong, physically, mentally and emotionally.  Yes, he ends up imprisoned because he steals a loaf of bread to try to feed his starving family, and yes, he escapes from prison, but he does so many noble things and proves himself redeemed, honest and trustworthy.

  1. I’ll second Atticus, Jean ValJean, and Samwise…though I went with Faramair, but my category was slightly different…characters that don’t get enough love.


    • Thank you for visiting and commenting, Joseph. I will be stopping by to check out your list soon. I like that you chose to do a different take on things as well with the characters that don’t get enough love.
