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”.
- 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.
- 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.
- Lucy of The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. She is brave, intelligent, innocent and kind-hearted.
- 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.
- 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.
- Dave Richman of The Negotiator of the O’Malley series by Dee Henderson. He is a strong, intelligent, protective man.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
