Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together
Happy Tuesday y’all! This week’s topic is “Character Traits I Love.” Below is a list of my favorite character traits and a ten characters/books to go with them, in no particular order. As always titles/covers link to Goodreads/Blog/Amazon(aff).
My Favorite Characters Traits
Sassy: I love a sassy character combined with dry humor. I like to laugh when I read, and it’s always nice to be surprised by a sassy character who dgaf. I like the spunk, the quick wit and take-no-crap-off-anybody attitude.
Broody: What is it with me and broody men? Amanda and I wrote an entire post dedicated to broody male characters. Heck, I even married one 😂 There is just something about the inner turmoil that draws me to them.
Cunning: Give me a character that keeps me guessing. Seriously y’all, I like the characters that leave you guessing what their next plan will be. I love the not knowing and being so thrilled when their scheming comes to an end and it all works how they planned. It’s so satisfying.
Loyal: I love loyal characters. I like it when they say what they believe or why they love and stick to it. They don’t run when things get hard. They stand beside you and fight to the end.
Protective: These are the characters that will fight even to death to protect their loved ones. They will do whatever is necessary of them to keep their loved ones out of harm’s way. This is seen a lot in dystopian fiction, so it’s no surprise it made my list 😉
