This week’s TGIF! question: Supporting Characters: We tend to gush over those main characters the most, but what about those supporting roles? Who are some of your favorites?
The first one that came to mind was Magnus Bane. If you’ve read The Mortal Instruments or The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare there’s no way you don’t love Magnus. He is definitely one of the BEST secondary characters out there.
Also Tiny Cooper, from Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan. He was such a stand out side character. He definitely stole the show at the end. :)
And lets not forget my favorite Cait Sith (pronounced cat shee), Grimalkin, from Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series. Has anyone come across a more sardonic creature?? I love him!
One character I always felt was underrated is Christian Ozera, from the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. He was HOT! And he kicked ass! Why was no one ever talking about him?!
Those are just a few I thought of. :) What are some of yours?
This week’s Follow Friday question: This Sunday in the U.S. is Mother’s Day, in celebration, what are some of your favorite books with strong mother/child relationships?
In the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, the main character, Claire, and her daughter, Brianna, have a very close strong relationship.
Also, Hazel and her mom in The Fault in our Stars by John Green. They made me cry, obviously, but I don’t know that I’d be strong enough to go through that with my daughter.
