Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish

Love today's topic, a great secondary character can make a book.

1. Puck, The Iron Fey by: Julie Kagawa- I'm not sure he counts as a secondary character, but for the purpose of this list I am going to count him as one. I absolutely adored him and his humor. 

2. Jackal, Blood of Eden by: Julie Kagawa- What can I say, Julie creates the best secondary characters. Jackal is hysterical and absolutely made The Immortal Rules for me!

3. Garth Black, Near & Far by: Nicole Williams- It is a good thing he is getting his own book, because there were numerous scene where Garth stole the show!

4. Daniel, Losing Hope by: Colleen Hoover- I adored Daniel! He was so funny and I loved his inability to call anyone by their actual name.

5. Breckin, Hopeless by: Colleen Hoover- Everyone deserves a Breckin!

6. Raphael, Wait For You by: J. Lynn- Yes he is a turtle, but I don't care he belongs on this list. I'm sure anyone who has read this book will agree.

7. Isabelle, The Mortal Instruments by: Cassandra Clare- I love Izzy, she is so kickass and strong and can steal a scene!

8. Apollo, Covenant by: Jennifer L Armentrout- He has wonderful timing or bad timing depending on how you look at it, but he is funny.

9. Drew, The Sea of Tranquility by: Katja Millay- Drew brought a much needed lightness to this story and I loved him. I took a liking to his inappropriateness. 

10. Adrian Ivashkov, Vampire Academy by: Richelle Mead- Yes he gets his own series and is not a secondary character in those, but he was originally a secondary character and a secondary character who stole the show on numerous occasions! 

What made your list?


  1. I almost picked Jackal, but then I made him my runner-up instead. I was really surprised by him in Eternity Cure though and loved what he brought to the book!
    I also picked Adrian :)
    I wasn't a Drew fan in the beginning but he grew on me after a while. And I love how badass Izzy is!
    Awesome list! Here's mine.

  2. I'm not familiar with all your choices but you've got a few there I totally agree with. Daniel, Isabelle, and most definitely Adrian. What's not to love about Adrian.

  7. This list made me look like a crazy person, but I'm quite okay with that. As I would come to my favorites I HAD to shout them out -- lol! This list is fabulous -- if I don't already love them, I know that I'm going to 'cause my Wifey is never wrong! *smoosh*

  8. ADRIAN, YES!! Oh Teresa, I can only agree with Adrian and Isabelle...but only because I haven't read any of the other books on your list! You'll still be my friend, though, right?!? LOL Man, I have LOTS of reading to do....

  9. DANG GIRL! Get outta my head! LOL! Hahaha! How crazy is it that you listed Daniel and Drew and I seriously ALMOST put them on my list too? And I thought about Puck, but wasn't sure if he was secondary so I skipped him. I LOVE that you put Raphael! Such a great list chica!
