Top Ten Characters that Stole my Heart

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by The Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is “Top Ten Characters Who X” and we get to fill in the blank. It can range from characters we hate, those we’d love to meet in real life, characters we love and anything in between. I’ve chosen to go with my Top Ten Characters that Stole my Heart.

Usually a couple is involved in a series, and I find it hard to separate them, especially when I like both characters. Technically, if I include Perry, Aria and Katy in the list, it’s my Top Thirteen characters. With my own personal preferences, I'd fall for the guy, so take it that the guy stole my heart, but their respective girl would be among my closest friends if I knew them in real life.

These are in no particular order.


• Lucas Maxfield
– Easy by Tammara Webber.

Lucas is depicted as a bad boy, but he really is the most mannerly, respectful, polite and considerate “bad-boy” I’ve read about. All this plus intelligence, tats and piercings… and I’m ├╝ber-happy!

Experiment in Terror Collage

• Dex Foray and Perry Palomino
– Experiment in Terror Series by Karina Halle.

I can’t separate these two; they both work so well together. They balance and bring out the best in each other, and I love them both.

Artists Trilogy Collage

• Camden McQueen
– The Artist’s Trilogy by Karina Halle.

Camden McQueenThis is supposed to be Karina’s inspiration for Camden. Enough said…

But in all seriousness, this series completely ruined the contemporary genre for me. Nothing has come close to it since.


• Varen Nethers
– Nevermore series by Kelly Creagh.

This is a very new addition to my favourites list. Exactly my kinda character, almost perfect!

I'm starting to see a trend in my favourites...

Lux Series Collage

• Daemon Black and Katy Swartz
– The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

This is another couple that it’s hard to separate… but I do love my Daemon. I really like Katy, but Daemon is the star of the series for me.

Hunger Games Collage

• Peeta Mellark
- The Hunger Games trilogy by Susan Collins.

Peeta totally makes the list! He's different to all the others. He doesn’t have that “I am man, hear me ROAR!” vibe. It gets repetitive as it’s in every other book with a romance thread in the storyline. He holds the candle for the sensitive souls with lots of back-bone. Love him!

Under the Never Sky trilogy collage

• Peregrine and Aria
– Under the Never Sky trilogy by Veronica Rossi.

This is one of my favourite series, and the characters definitely made it for me. I loved everything about it.

• Roar
– Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi.

Roar is Perry’s childhood best friend, and became Aria's as well. I love that he was depicted in this way, and not as an alternative love interest. Now, I just wish he had his own series... He deserves to be the star of the show!

Cassie Palmer series Collage

• Pritkin
– Cassandra Palmer series by Karen Chance.

Ok, ok, I confess! That war mage grew on me. I was on Mircea's side for the first few books, but then I saw the light!

Thoughtless trilogy collage

• Kellan Kyle
– Thoughtless Trilogy by S.C. Stephens.

Is he a realistic male character… probably not. But I still love him!

    1. Hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I like your topic! I've only read the Hunger Games.

  5. Oh nice topic! And picks! Looooved Daemon and Katy too! And I still need to start Rossi's books and I intend to! They were shipped yesterday and will likely arrive on Friday at the earliest. :P And that's with my B&N member shipping, they aren't as fast as they proclaim sometimes...

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

    1. Oooh! I really hope you like them *fingers crossed*, can't wait to read your reviews :D

  6. Daemon and Peeta are two of my favourite love interests!! They are so different but equally wonderful guys. :) I'd totally date both of them! Great list!

    1. Yeah, they couldn't me more different, and I totally agree =D Thanks for stopping by Sofia.

  7. Aaah, Lucas from Easy. And Peeta <3
    I have so many warm feelings towards Peeta it's ridiculous.

    1. They're both awesome guys, love 'em. Thanks for stopping by =)

  8. Daemon Black, I always forget about how much I like him! I need to read Thoughtless and Under the Never Sky. You know the TBR pile and how the "I should read" books keep sitting there! Great list! I hope you don't mind I added your button to my blog this week! I love your posts and you are fun to visit! :)

    1. Awww thanks so much Kristalyn! I don't mind at all, and thank you!

      I'm actually getting pretty intimidated by my own TBR. I usually go for the shiny new books first and the older ones are pushed aside. Not the best strategy!! Thanks for stopping by!

  9. I am listening to Into the Still Blue right now and Roar totally steals the show as far as I'm concerned. A spin off featuring Roar would be the BEST THING EVER.

    1. I'd love that to happen! Maybe one day Rossi will write it *fingers crossed!*

  10. LUCAS! Love him to pieces! He is the best. And I love that Varen is on your list! I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in that series. And Daemon is amazing too! I love this list!

    Teresa @ Readers Live A Thousand Lives

    1. Oooh I can't wait to read Enshadowed! I hope it's even better than Nevermore, such a good book. Thanks for stopping by Teresa!
