Let’s talk some more top 5 favorites!
As you know, I have a whole section on the blog about my Top 5 in different categories. Last time, I spoke about my favorite female characters, so naturally, today we’re talking about my Top 5 favorite male characters (in no particular order, because that’s too hard)! Let’s get to it! As always, if you click on the image, it takes you to the artists’ website!
1. Ronan Lynch (The Raven Cycle)
Even though this isn’t ordered, this is definitely my favorite character of all time. I can’t explain to you exactly what I love about Ronan Lynch. He is beyond well written and nuanced, so it’s difficult to pin point a specific thing I like. I love everything. Maybe it’s his anger at himself projected outwards, maybe it’s his dreaming, or his relationship with his brothers, or with Adam, or the fact that he wants to be a FREAKING farmer. It’s all of those things. You should read TRC, if not for anything else, then for him and be HYPED for the Ronan trilogy we’re getting. I know I am.
2. Sazed (The Mistborn Trilogy)
I LOVE SAZED. He is such a wonderful character. He is a scholar, who is incredibly smart and thoughtful, but who is also very real and has doubts about himself, his faith, his path in life. He is also so GENTLE. I loved his relationship with Vin in the books, which was so well done, and I loved him even more with Tindwyl’s appearance and him falling in love and what not. I think he was one of the best written characters of the Mistborn trilogy.
3. Locke Lamora (The Gentlemen Bastards Sequence)
The Lies of Locke Lamora is one of my favorite books. Locke is a brilliant mastermind. He is a thief and a bloody good one at that. He’s incredibly loyal to his friends. That’s probably my favorite thing about him. There’s real love and support in his squad and I really appreciate that. Beyond all that, he’s just so funny. He is quick witted, and sassy and so resilient. I adore him so much.
4. Percy Jackson (The Percy Jackson Series)
One of the first books that got me into the online bookish community and it was mostly due to Percy’s character. He is really funny and has a sort of humor to him that I really enjoy. He is very sarcastic and self-deprecating and his voice is so real and honest in the books, so you can’t help but love him. He is also a really laid back character, which I enjoy a lot.
5. Gansey (The Raven Cycle)
Even though Ronan’s my favorite in TRC, Gansey is the character I relate to the most, not just in TRC, but in general. The dealings with privilege, the mother hen moments, the need to prove oneself, the constant feeling of wanting more, it’s all something I relate to a lot and I just love how Gansey is written. I absolutely love him.
So those are my favorite male characters! Let me know if any of these are your faves, and also, be sure to let me know who ARE your favorite male characters. And if you have any requests for Top 5, let me know!
