Top ten tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where the people of the blogverse do some spotlighting in groups of ten, ocassionally (*ahem* often *ahem*) pushing the rules to the limits. In the best ways.
This week I am back, and all thanks to the incredible Alexandra from Alexandra's Scribblings who is very persuasive. Thank you Alexandra!
I have so many characters that I fancy quite a lot, but it's a big mix of females and males, so I'm doing five of each.
1. Finnick Odair from The Hunger Games books.
-- I don't think I trusted him at first, but from the moment I read about that sugar cube I couldn't help but be lost to Finnick- there was no going back when he posed provocatively in his underwear.
2. Howl from Howls Moving Castle.
-- annoying as he can be for that very reason most of the time, Howl has a quality I can't describe but can't get enough of. It would be wrong to fight off the smile that comes to my lips every time I read something said by/about him.
3. William Darcy from Pride and Prejudice.
--I can see a trend- I apparently really like characters who are frustrating and annoying but who have many layers. Like onions.
4. Augustus Waters from TFiOS.
-- he has amazing one liners, says the most beautiful things to Hazel and about life, and I just love that guy to pieces.
5. Fred and George Weasley from The Harry Potter books.
-- oh my, don't even get me started on these two.
Honorable mentions go to Dora from Inkdeath for being the first character to make me go swoony, and to Peeta Mellark from The Hunger Games books- I like me some baker, but Finnick wins the competition everyday in my eyes. Also Jared Lynburn from Unspoken because I really like you, but you are an arse.
1. Luna Lovegood from The Harry Potter books.
-- both in the books and out of them, there are so many people who don't seem to see Luna as being much more than Loony, and maybe it's just because I'm apparently quite like her in looks and personality, but I love her uniqueness and imagination and clothing.
2. Kami Glass from Unspoken.
-- ALEXANDRA! See what you've done to me? I got super excited to read this after reading this amazing review and swooning over the clothes in this post, I began to read my copy of Unspoken and practically turn incomprehensible whenever I think/talk of her. She is the BEST.
3. Sophie Hatter from Howls Moving Castle.
-- I would never part Sophie and Howl, but they are both characters I adore so much and over whom I seriously crush. All the time.
4. Lyra Balaqua from His Dark Materials.
-- I was a little unsure if Lyra quite fit this list, but decided she did- I don't know if it is a good thing that I share very similar personalities with a lot of these characters, and it is certainly the case with Miss Lyra. She's strong and speaks her mind and I just love her power, and those are some very crush-worthy aspects of someone.
5. Annie Cresta/Johanna Mason from The Hunger Games series.
-- I love these characters so much and am dearly and very fondly in love with both of them, and I admire them both intensely.
