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!

  1. 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)

  1. Favourite Female Character of the Year

bear and the nightingale

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!

  1. Most Relatable Character of the Year

furiously happy

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.

  1. Couple of the Year

Sisterhood everlasting

Lena and Kostos from The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants– yes I read the whole series this year- I regret nothing.

  1. Villain of the Year

midnight-star

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.

  1. Most Disliked Character of the Year

wideacre

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.

  1. Royal of the Year

prince-of-thorns

Prince Jorg! Hands down!

  1. Sidekick / Non Main Character of the Year

assassins apprentice

Nighteyes- easily.

  1. Sibling of the Year

watching glass shatter

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!

  1. Free Choice Award: create your own award! The Oh-My-Goodness-This-Character-Needs-A-Hug Award

wizard heir

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!!
