Characters that Made the Book (Less Awful)

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and now lives at That Artsy Reader Girl. I think I probably need a little disclaimer here: none of these books were actually bad, they are just way down on my favourites list. And as per usual, this is not in any particular order.

1 - Ash from The Fandom by Anna Day - in the "original" Gallows Dance, Ash is the puppy-love character, the cute-ish boy in the background but not the main love interest. But when Violet and her friends highjack the story, Ash comes front and centre and really shines.

2 - Abel from Defy The Stars by Claudia Gray - technically a robot, Abel has more humanity in him than most of the humans do in this space war. 

3 - Cath from Heartless by Marissa Meyer - from what I can remember, Cath was a fairly two-dimensional character, but she did love to bake and that's the kind of person I can support!

4 - Asher from The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes - the comic relief with a sharp mind in this political drama for teenagers was just incredibly funny and a welcome change from all the seriousness. 

5 - Arin from The Winner's Cuse by Marie Rutkoski - even though I didn't ship his relationship with Kestral, he was still a really interesting character in a really interesting and well-set up world.

An extra, because I can:
Tric from Nevernight by Jay Kristoff - definitely a favourite book of mine, and of course Mia is equally incredible but Tric completely stole my heart!

Second disclaimer: I know it's supposed to be ten and I've technically done 6 - let's just go with it because I am tired and it's honestly been a really shitty week and I couldn't think beyond these 5/6.
