Top 10 Tuesdays (17)

Top 10 Tuesdays
Topic: Top Ten All Time Favorite Characters In Books
This meme is created by The Broke and the Bookish, anyone can participle telling about their top 10 topic items are.

I am really picky about my female characters. I personally love female characters that are strong and don't easily break down, but I don't like them so hard that they show no weakness to nothing. I can't stand weak and whiny characters. This is why I tend to like more UF/PR female adult characters then YA females. There is a lot of whiny females in the YA world, but there are some really great ones too. The adult characters just stick out in my mind more.

Mercy Thompson
from Moon Called by Patricia Briggs
She kicks ass! I also love that even though she maybe weaker then werewolves she hasn't let that stop her, she has learned to fight and she uses her speed at changing to her advantages.

Phedre no Delaunay 
from Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey
She is just an amazing character! She knows many languages and is versed in MANY arts.

Kate Daniels
from Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews
Another kick ass female heroine that I love!

Rose Hathaway
from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
One of the top kick ass YA heroines  
Bertie Shakespeare Smith
from Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev
She can create stories and things, she is fun and has two awesome guys in love with her and she has the coolest sidekicks ever!

I love these boys for different reason! 

from Touch by Jus Accardo
What is not to love about him, he had a bad boy side but he is so innocent. Oh got to love those ice blue eyes.

Imriel de la Courcel
from Kushiel's Scion by Jacqueline Carey
He is a very complex young man. We get to know him from being a baby to finding his HEA and all the trials in between of wanting to "be good"

Tynan MacGillivray
from Dark Awakening by Kendra Leigh Castle
OH I LOVE Kendra's men, she writes the best dark and brooding boys ever! He purrs! 

Gideon McInnes
from Call of the Highland Moon by Kendra Leigh Castle
Yum Scottish Werewolf, what is not to love!

from Once in a Full Moon by Ellen Schreiber
He has always stuck out in my head, I think it might be mostly because I really don't like Celeste and I think he is way too wonderful of a guy for her Celeste. She bugs me to no end, she is the type of female character that I can't stand!

What are you 10 favorite characters?
