I’m really excited to get to write about my favorite characters from this year and also overwhelmed that I am supposed to only list for you ten??? Is it cheating if I give you separate lists of favorite heroines, favorite heroes, and favorite non-binary characters? Okay, fine, I’ll be good and obey the rules of ten. In case you’re just joining me, I’m participating in the Top 10 of 2019 that Kimberly and Ginger put together and today’s topic is favorite characters.

Daisy Jones from Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

I had absolutely no interest in being somebody else’s muse. I am not a muse. I am the somebody. End of fucking story.

Catalina from Sapphire Flames by Ilona Andrews

The responsible thing to do, the Head of the House thing to do, would be to send her on her way. This wasn’t our fight and there was no profit to be made here. We were an emerging House, and we had neither the financial resources nor the manpower of MII. If I helped her, I would be putting all of us in danger. But she was a friend. She’d kept us all from dying at Nevada’s wedding, and when I looked at her, my chest hurt.

Kincaid from The One for You by Roni Loren

“You sure you’re not going to get tired of me?” She poked him in the shoulder. “I’ve heard I’m best in small doses.”

He cupped her face and kissed her forehead. “I’ve never been more sure of anything in my life. You, my love, are best in really big, superintense, lifelong doses.”

The One for You by Roni Loren

Jared from Block Shot by Kennedy Ryan

“I live through those things by caring less,” he says. “And I know that isn’t an option for you.”

A humorless chuckle strangles in my throat. “Um… No. That isn’t likely for me.”

“But it’s one of the things I like about you the most.”

Block Shot by Kennedy Ryan

Johan from A Prince on Paper by Alyssa Cole

He’d thirsted, he considered risking it all, and then he’d done what any intelligent person would do–he’d ignored her with a strength matched only by Europe ignoring migrants and American ignoring creeping fascism.

Samson from The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai

“It’s not a weakness to take care of yourself. Asking for and taking what you need to function should never be considered a weakness.”

The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai

Jules from Suzanne Brockmann’s Troubleshooters series

“When I met you, Robin, God…. I had to redefine everything. You know, there was this country song my mother really liked. It used to annoy me, I was in my technopop phase, but lately I just… I find myself thinking about the lyrics all the time. That was a river, this is the ocean…. I thought I loved Adam, and I did, but… it wasn’t even close to this incredible ocean that I feel for you.”

Hazel from Josh & Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren

The world seems full of men who are initially infatuated by our eccentricities, but who ultimately expect them to be temporary.

Bianca from Aurora Blazing by Jessie Mihalik

“Anyone lucky enough to be entrusted with your heart would be a fool to treat it carelessly.”

Aurora Blazing by Jessie Mihalik

Meg from Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn

“Huh,” I say, not acknowledging that I’m pretty unsure about what qualifies as “unbelievable” math. Long division, probably.

Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn

And there you have my top ten list of favorite characters I met this year! This list was difficult to compile and I feel like if you asked me on a different day, I’d probably wind up giving you a completely different list. Except for Daisy. She’ll always be on my list. Who were some of your favorite characters this year?
