Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I Am Thankful For


This Top Ten Tuesday focuses on characters we are most thankful for. Here are my some of favorites:


1.  Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - "Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing."




2.  Belly from Summer series by Jenny Han - “For me, it was almost like winter didn’t count. Summer was what mattered. My whole life was measured in summers.” 




3.  Jamie Fraser from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon - “When the day shall come that we do part," he said softly, and turned to look at me, "if my last words are not 'I love you'-ye'll ken it was because I didna have time.” 




4.  Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins - "No one will forget me. Not my look, not my name. Katniss. The girl who was on fire."




5.  Hermione Granger from Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling  -  "Books! And cleverness! There are more important things! — Friendship! And Bravery!"




6.  Elizabeth Woodville from the Cousins' War series by Philippa Gregory - “The law is what powerful men say it shall be.”




7.  Scarlet O'Hara from Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell -  "If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill as God as my witness I'll never be hungry again."




8.  Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery - “It's been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.” 




9.  Mr. Darcy from Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen - 
You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” 



10.  Claire Fraser from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon - “I stood still, vision blurring, and in that moment, I heard my heart break. It was a small, clean sound, like the snapping of a flower's stem.” 



What characters are you thankful for?  Let me know in the comments below.  This meme is hosted by  The Broke and The Bookish.

  1. Lots of great characters on your list! I love Hermione and Anne and of course Jamie and Claire are favorites too. Scarlett O'Hara is actually one of my least favorite characters. I read the book and watched the movie when I was a teen and I thought she was so selfish and unlikable. I guess I could admire her determination and grit though. :)

    1. Haha. I have always loved Scarlet. She's the original bad-ass and survivor. She is completely selfish though....totally get that aspect of it. Thanks for visiting, Christina!
