Faves of 2011 so far - The Characters

Monday, June 27, 2011


Over at the awesome Inkcrush, Nomes is doing a half yearly list of her favourite books so far.  They are 3 different lists The Books, The Charactersand The Scenes & The Random.  The books are any books you have read in 2011 so far regardless of what year they were published.  

Today we are talking about the characters.  Anybody can participate just make sure to visit Inkcrush.

1. best female POV -

Piper from Five Flavors of Dumb. Followed closely by Olivia from This Gorgeous Game and Leigh from Psych Major Syndrome.
2. best male POV -


Adam from Where She Went. Followed by Darcy from Slice and Noah from Invincible Summer.
3. Best couple <3 -

Will & Kate from Perfect You. Followed by Adam and Mia from Where She Went and Jake and Harper from Saving June.


4. who i so want to be best friends with -
Em, Lyd & Cassie from The Year of Secret Assignments. Followed by Leigh from Psych Major Syndrome and Chelesa from Past Perfect.

5. who I fell completely in love with (new literary crush) -
                        Nathan                           Jake                                  Patrick
                   Barrons                                    Four                                  Finn

Nomes this isn't very fair making me choose between my guys. So the best I can do is a top 6 for this year (in no particular order) Nathan from Psych Major Syndrome, Jake from Saving June, Barrons from Fever series, Four from Divergent, Finn from Stay and Patrick from Fixing Delilah. And instead of covers I put book boyfriends pictures.


6. worst (best) villain -

Ty from Stolen. He is not really a villain but I should of disliked him for what he did and I didn't.


7. best character twist (who you loved then hated or vice versa) -

Eliza from Fury. At first you think what a b#$ch. But I ended up loving her. One of the most memorable characters I have ever read.  


8. best kick-arse female -

Mackayla from Fever. Followed by Katsa from Graceling and Gabi from Waterfall.

9 best kick-arse male -

Barrons from Fever is definitely my top pick. Followed by Marcello from Waterfall and Po from Graceling

10. broke your heart the most -


Angel from Redeeming Love, Jenna and Cameron from Sweethearts and Ty from Stolen. 

11. best/worst character names -

Best - Darcy Franz Pele Walker from Slice.  That name just makes me smile. Followed by Four from Divergent and Hale from Heist Society. Worst Po from Graceling. It reminds me of the Teletubbies. Followed by Vlane from the Fever series.

BONUS: 5 fave covers (from books i have read)

"The best I could do is a top 6" I'm so impressed with you Nic!! xD Kay. Adam, Mia, WSW = <33 Em Lyd and Cassie! Omg, they're amazing. Po & Katsa :) (always) and way to make me want Saving June SOOO Much more :p Love those covers, and I think I'm really missing out on this Five Flavors of Dumb love! Fantastic list ;)

Alexa said...

Will and Kate = LOVE!!!

And I'd love to hang out with Lyd, Cass and Em - they are fantastic characters.

haha to Po, I actually quite like that one. I read another book (Secret Society Girl) at the same time as Graceling which had a very hot Poe in it - so I've been won over now :)

Great list and I must read Fury!

Oh and how do you get your pictures to line up so nicely?

Misha said...

Completely agree with Eliza (best character twist) and Ty (best villain). The cover for Die For Me is great - I want to read the book too. Great picks!

Sonia said...

I want to be best friends with Em, Lyd & Cassie. I love the book very much! Piper from Five Flavors of Dumb and Saving June seems great! I really want to read them. I love the cover of that 5 books either, although I haven't read them myself. I prefer the Aussie cover of Saving June than that of the US version.

Nomes said...

Nic i SO COMPLETELY LOVE this post and i want to sit down and chat with you about it all

i am SO in love with all the boys pics you put up here <3 (and i recognised who each one was without even needing you to number them, LOL)

I must meet this Finn ...

i love how we double up all the time :)

Savannah said...

WOW< what a list! I agree with the best kick arse male/female. They all rock!

Leanna (Daisy Chain Book Reviews) said...

Ah, another list featuring lots of Saving June. I need that book!

I loved reading Adam's POV in Where She Went too. My heart broke for the guy!

abbey said...

I struggled with my list, I thought i had read so many books but only my favourites seemed worth mentioning. So well done on making the whole list!
i agree with you on the best couple 'perfect you', i loved Will and Kate, one of my fav Elizabeth Scott books.
And i nearly chose the girls from Finding Cassie crazy as who i would want to be friends with, they seem like such a fun bunch and a tad crazy.
I loveee saving Junes cover, its the reason i bought the book.
I'm really interested to read 'Stolen'.
Anyway enough blabbering from me, great list, you've given me some more book ideas.
- abbey

Jess said...

Oooo we picked quite a few the same :)

And I love your montage of guys! *sigh*

Good call with Ty as villain. It's funny, I don't really think of him as a villain but technically he his.

Jenny said...

Oooo look at your lovely harem of men, you have mighty fine taste Nic! I agree with you thoroughly on Mac and Barrons, they are both definitely kick arse:)

Alex (A Girl, Books, OtherThings) said...

*drools a little staring at new crushes*

Uh, what?

Oh, right. List!

LOL, lovely list. With very nice pictures!!!

Also, love the cover of Five Flavors of Dumb, I think it's so rock and roll and I'm reading it soon :D

Jenny N. said...

I will never tire of seeing the book boyfriends ;)

Alyssa@Teens Read and Write said...

Loved Graceling but the name Po was horrible. THanks for the boyfriend photos!

Angie said...

Lovely choices. LOVELY pictures. :) And yes, Po was truly the most horrible literary name of the century.

YA Book Queen said...

Ooh, I love who you put up for Four!! :)

Awesome list!

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Wait... WHAT are some of my harem doing HERE? Hm... looks like I'm going to have to up security again. *sigh*

I really want to read Graceling.

Missie said...

NIC!!!!

Make me drown in my own drool why don't you?! OMG! I love your literary crushes and I want to make them mine!

How cute is Nathan's smile in that picture?! *le swoon*

Teletubbies! hahahaha!

I love W.W. Hale's name. It's a great mystery. ;)

mfay2 said...

I'm going to have to check out the Five Flavors of Dumb one. Po? *snort* I agree with "Four" as a great name, I prefer over his real name; gives him more character. I don't know.

PS: Where do you get the pics of the guys? I wanted to have pics for my contemporary guys post, but I found only a few. A lot of emo guys and not so appropiate ones.

A Canadian Girl said...

Sweet, you put up some pictures of hot guys :) I love Adam and need to get around to getting a copy of Saving June.

Ange said...

Awesome list!! You have given me so many new books that I MUST read!! I will definitely be putting a lot of these on my TBR pile. Great post.

Tina said...

Ohhh I love your picks!!

Marcello and Po are two of my fav hero guys!!
I need to meet four like today..;)

And the Die for Me Cover is my fav this year too.

Yani {AvidReader} said...

I love love love Perfect You!!!!! and I really have to read psych major syndrome, heard awesome things

Jacinda (The Reading Housewives) said...

I keep forgetting Invincible Summer is mpov! I even read it! It must be the cover! haha.

Look at all of that hotness! WOWZERS!

A.J. said...

Wow, great list! *continues staring at literary crushes* XD

Miss Page-Turner said...

I didn't know that Where She Went is written from a male POV... If I Stay is written from female POV, isn't it? I really need to start the series.
Uhh, Saving June again... best couple.. now I could pretend that I had the patience to wait one more day for my copy to arrive, but I CANNOT!

Small Review said...

I'm so curious about that book Fury. That you called her one of the most memorable characters speaks volumes.
