Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful blog The Broke and Bookish and this week’s question is:
Top Ten All Time Favorite Characters In Books

Katherine Heigl starring as Stephanie Plum in the movie
Stephanie Plum in Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series
chaotic, broke and hilarious – Stephanie Plum is Trenton’s best known Bounty Hunter. You just have to love her. 

Death in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series

Gretchen from Christine Nöstlinger’s Gretchen Sackmeier trilogy (German book)

Emma Watson as Hermione Granger
Hermione in the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling

Mary Alice and Patricia Anne in Anne George’s Southern Sisters Mysteries
two sisters who could not be any more different but are the perfect team

Alexia Tarabotti in Gail Carriger’s The Parasol Protectorate series
a strong independent woman in a paranormal Victorian England

Nanny Ogg from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series
I know no one who can sing the Hedgehog song better then her

Right now I can only come up with seven but those are my all time favourites. I always return to them and reread the book they are starring in regularly.


  1. Aww I wish I had put Death on my list- I LOVE HI AND HIS CAPS LOCK ADDICTION! Hermione is also a brilliant, lovable character!

  7. LOVE Stephanie. Sooo funny. Have you seen the movie? I haven't yet, but definitely will. Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my Top Ten.

    1. Saw the film on Monday - it's good. Katherine Heigl is a perfect Stephie but the guys are wrong. I never pictured them like the actors. You should definitely watch it.
