Top 5 Tuesday is back! Long hosted by Shanah @bionicbookworm (she was the creator), she has now new challenges awaiting her and Meeghan from@meeghanreadshas become our new mastermind!!!
This week’s topic:
FAVOURITE CHARACTERS whose names start with letters of the alphabet!! You can do first name, last name, nicknames, whatever you want – that’s completely up to you!!
This week we choose from P to T !
P is for …
Pip or Pippa from A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
Pip is such a smart detective amateur! This is an excellent YA mystery that I recommend with whole my heart!
“As if they think I don’t already know. I came out of the womb knowing how to do academic references.”
Philippe de Clermont from A Discovery of Wicthes series by Deborah Harkness
Philippe is noble and strong to his core. The patriarch of a vampire lineage and Head of the Knights of Lazarus, he is a formidable vampire but has a deep love for his family, even extended like Diana Bishop.
“I turned to leave, then whirled around and flung my arms around Philippe’s massive shoulders. How could such a man ever be broken? “What is it?” Philippe murmured, taken aback. “You will not be alone either, Philippe de Clermont,” I whispered fiercely. “I’ll find a way to be with you in the darkness, I promise. And when you think the whole world has abandoned you, I’ll be there, holding your hand.” “How could it be otherwise,” Philippe said gently, “when you are in my heart?”―
Q is for Bryce Quinlan by Sarah J Maas
I love her so much that I made a funko last weekend!
“…There’s nothing wrong with a party girl. I don’t get why the world thinks there is…Its easier for me—when people assume the worst about what I am. It lets me see who they really are — Bryce”
R is for Rin or Fang Runin from The Poppy War by RF Kuang
Because I am obsessed with this series!
“The anger was a shield. The anger helped her to keep from remembering what she’d done. Because as long as she was angry, then it was okay — she’d acted within reason. She was afraid that if she stopped being angry, she might crack apart.”
But also for Rhysand from A Court of Thorn and Roses series by Sarah J Maas
Because…I am in love with Rhys duh!
“He thinks he’ll be remembered as the villain in the story. But I forgot to tell him that the villain is usually the person who locks up the maiden and throws away the key. He was the one who let me out.”
S is for …
Samantha from What You Wish For by Katherine Center
Samantha was a breeze of fresh air. She had my dream work: she was a librarian! I loved how Katherine Center made her library a dream for kids and readers. With staircase painted like books, with nests to read, filled with joy!
Samantha had a “condition” that I won’t speak about here as I don’t wat to spoil your fun. But what I loved about her is that she chose to overcome her fear. She chose to be happy, joyful.
And she made a 180° transformation going for a pink bang, polka dots skirts, plateau shoes and bright colors! She is a truly courageous and warm person.
“I’m not happy because it comes easily to me. I bite and scratch and claw my way toward happiness every day.”
Sadie from Courtney Summer
Because Sadie was so brave and her story so sad!
“I realized pretty early on that the who didn’t really matter so much. That anybody who listens to me, I end up loving them just a little.”
Spensa from Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
Because Spensa is kickass! She is so stubborn and determined to prove to everyone that she can be a pilot. And then that she can save her planet. I CAN’T WAIT FOR BOOK THREE!
“And the warrior’s way was not to run from failure, but to own up to it and do better.”
And T is for ..Nathaniel Thorn from Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
Because he is my favorite sorcerer who has mastered the art of sass that had me smiling like a goof!
“God, Elisabeth, I’ve been doomed since the moment I watched you smack a fiend off my carriage with a crowbar. How could you not tell? Silas has been rolling his eyes at me for weeks.”
Have you read any of these? What would be your choices this week?
Thanks for reading!
