This week for Top Ten Tuesday is a Character Freebie!
I wanted to highlight my favorite characters from this year! My only rule is that is has to be new characters. I will only choose characters that are new to me in 2019 (so no series that I am continuing). I hope to highlight some new books you may not have read yet!
Though as I made this list I realized I loved too many from one book so I did combine as necessary. WHOOPS.
I will link as many reviews as I have!
Spensa – Skyward (Skyward #1) by Brandon Sanderson
If could name all of the things I love about Spensa we would be here all day. She is strong, tenacious, unwilling to back down, but is also fiercely loyal and loving to those around her. This book was AMAZING and I literally have no chill about reading Starsight this fall.
Alyssa ana’Raisa – Shattered Realms Series by Cinda Williams Chima
When Lyssa walked onto the scene in book two of this fabulous series I was DONE. I love a warrior heart that I want to cheer on through every facet of a book.
Persephone, Suri, Brin, Moya & Arion – The Legends of the First Empire Series by Michael J. Sullivan
Age of Myth || Age of Swords (RTC – 5 stars)
I am obsessed with these ladies y’all. I’ve only read the first two books (Age of Myth & Age of Swords) because I’m waiting for my library copy of Age of War (book three of six). And I am loving this so much. These women hold their own and are bright and cunning. If you’re a fantasy love (especially like Sanderson) check out these!
Alex & Sage – The Traitor’s Circle by Erin Beaty
One of my latest OTP’s (I have many). I love these two even when their lack of communication in book two had me anxious and shouting at my book. STILL LOVE. I am so excited to finish out this series Tuesday! I especially love that Alex doesn’t hinder Sage. He trusts and believes she can and will do what she says. Nobody holding her back.
Squad 312 – The Aurora Cycle by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
I LOVE EVERY MEMBER OF THIS TEAM (especially Kal, of course) . This book was absolutely amazing and I love this writing duo.
Jackaby – Jackaby Series by William Ritter
Jackaby || Beastly Bones (RTC – 4 stars)
Jackaby is so clever! His antics actually make me laugh out loud. I love his dynamic with his work partner Abigail Rook. I need to finish this series stat.
Lara & Aren – The Bridge Kingdom (The Bridge Kingdom #1) by Danielle L. Jensen
MY NEW FAVORITE NEW ADULT FANTASY ROMANCE.
Take note and look for my review on July 15th. I loved every single piece of this book and can gush for hours. I need more people to read this to discuss!
Bayr – The First Girl Child by Amy Harmon
I love anything Amy Harmon writes, this was no exception and I absolutely fell in love with Bayr. You watch him grow up in the book and UGH if it doesn’t pull at all the heart strings. All I wanted while reading was for him to get his happy ending.
Vhalla & Aldrik – Air Awakens by Elise Kova
RTC – 4 stars
I’ve only read the first book (and part of the second), but you know when you read a book and know in your bookish soul that you will love these characters? This is how I feel about them.
Percy & Annabeth – Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series by Rick Riordan
The Lightning Thief (RTC – 5 stars) || The Sea of Monsters (RTC – 4 stars)
Another series I’ve only started (and am only getting to now – I KNOW I KNOW), but I am loving these two! I feel like I’ve seen some spoiler-y stuff that they’re endgame? I SURE HOPE SO. But I also love where their friendship is and how much they care and respect one another.
Have you read any of these books? What is on of your favorite new to you characters of 2019? Lets talk in the comments!
