This Week's Topic: Top Ten Favorite Characters in YA Contemporary Novels
This week we got to pick which genre we wanted to use for our top ten favorite characters, so I decided to go with YA contemporaries! I love reading that genre and have come across so many amazing characters, so here are my top ten favorite characters...
Lola (Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins)
This girl is just seriously awesome. I love how she has such a spunky personality and isn't afraid to show herself through her clothes and the colors of her hair. Not to mention she lives next to the ridiculously amazing Cricket Bell.
Honor (In Honor by Jessi Kirby)
I am absolutely obsessed with Jessi Kirby's books, but Honor has got to be my favorite character out of them. She is such an intriguing character and following the story of her after she lost her brother was so emotional.
Jase Garrett (My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick)
Jase is seriously the best boyfriend a girl could ask for. He's sweet, caring, and is unlike any other teenage guy I know. I don't think Samantha could have done any better than that adorable boy next door.
Jeane (Adorkable by Sarra Manning)
If I had to use one word to describe Jeane, it would definitely be Adorkable. Jeane is this awesome girl who has a super successful blog. She has such a unique (and cool) sense of self and style and isn't afraid to show the world that she's the boss.
Adam (The Boys Next Door by Jennifer Echols)
I've literally read this book at least four times and I'm pretty sure I fall in love with Adam more and more each time. He's such a hard-headed character who isn't afraid to play mind games with Lori. I love his playful nature and how caring he turns out to me. *sigh* Why can't he be real?
Parker (Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally)
Miranda Kenneally's books are absolutely amazing and she knows how to create the perfect character. Parker is far from perfect, but that just makes her the kind of girl everyone can relate to (well, at least me). Her whole world is turned upside down and it's so interesting to see how she copes with it all, especially about the part where she has a thing with the super cute baseball coach...
Etienne (Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins)
Mmmm do I really have to explain myself on this one? He's french, gorgeous, and super charming. What more could you ask for in a guy?
Erin (Love Story by Jennifer Echols)
Yes, another Jennifer Echols character! In this one, Erin is a creative writing major who uses her own past with a guy who worked for her family to write her stories. Only to find out he's in her class. I loved how she reacted to the situations and played games with him through her writing.
Lily (Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohen and David Levithan)
I love characters you can relate to, and Lily is definitely one of those kinds of girls. The way she reacts to playing the game with Dash by taking a chance against all of her introverted instincts and going all around New York was so admirable. I was rooting for her the entire journey.
Hudson (Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler)
This girl is just too cool. She loves to bake cupcakes, is a figure skater, and ends up teaching the hunky hockey team how to be more graceful on the ice. Who wouldn't want to hang out with a bunch of hockey players? I also loved, though, how she was able to balance all of that with discovering who she really is in life. I wish this story had gone on forever!
