Because I refuse to let 2017 go apparently…
Thanks so much to Modern Witch’s Bookshelf for tagging me to do this one- she writes super fun content, so be sure to check her out!
Favourite Male Character of the Year
Just one? Argh this is so hard!! I think I’m gonna have to go with the indomitable Kaz Brekker (I just wanted to use the word indomitable)
Favourite Female Character of the Year
Vasilisa- I got into a whole conversation with my sister about why she’s such a great female character- she’s selfless without being a pushover, she’s enchanting yet not in a cheesy way, and she’s mentally tough as old boots. While she has some of the idealised nature of a fairy tale character, she also manages to be perfectly realistic, which is quite a feat!
Most Relatable Character of the Year
Hmm I’m not sure that I read any characters this year that stood out as especially relatable, but I did find Furiously Happy relatable in general. Since this is non-fiction, I guess that means I find the author relatable? Although not the taxidermy- that shit creeps me out.
Couple of the Year
Lena and Kostos from The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants– yes I read the whole series this year- I regret nothing.
- Villain of the Year
LOOK AWAY EVERYONE THAT HASN’T READ THIS- but yeah, Adelina made a great villain. And she also (*massive spoiler*) had a great redemption arc.
Most Disliked Character of the Year
I HATED Beatrice from Wideacre *so much*. I’m not sure whether she was supposed to be the most detestable character ever written, yet that’s what she is. Hands down.
Royal of the Year
Prince Jorg! Hands down!
Sidekick / Non Main Character of the Year
Sibling of the Year
This is easy in terms of knowing which book has the best siblings- but hard given that all of them are so good!! I’m gonna go with Ethan though I could say any of the Glass brothers!
Free Choice Award: create your own award! The Oh-My-Goodness-This-Character-Needs-A-Hug Award
Yes, I made that awfully specific on purpose, just so I could pick Seph from Wizard Heir- because oh my goodness he needs a hug.
For once I’m not tagging anyone specific, because I know how long it takes to get to these and it’s already 2018, so I tag anyone and everyone that wants to do this! Feel free!!
What was your favourite character of the year? Let me know in the comments!
