Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on our post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. If you can't come up with ten, don't worry about it---post as many as you can!
Top Ten Favorite Minor Characters ( you know... all those great supporting character or a VERY minor character that might have been only in there a page or two but had an effect on you)
1. Peeves the ghost in Harry Potter: He's so funny and a naughty delight that it is a shame he isn't in the movies (or at least I don't think he was in the film version anyway)
2. Rand the cook in Poison Study: He is probably one of the first people to be-friend Yelena and he's just a great additional character to bring some life and light to the sad and hard times.
3. The Mulefa creatures from The Amber Spyglass: They just always stuck with me because they were so strange but always the most understanding and learning beings. They shaped Mary Malone's views in a way as she learnt to live with them and how they saw the world.
4. Angela in Shiver: She is really a tender touch character that has a big heart and seems to have a bigger effect on the main characters than they probably realise. She's a good friend and has her own life that you don't really see in the book but get a real feel for her passions via Grace
5. Madge Undersee in The Hunger Games: She's the Mayor's daughter and Katniss' friend and is the reason the Katniss has the MockingJay pin. She's a character that you feel wants to be as brave and as strong as Katniss but can't quite do it. She has the heart but not the will power and for her Katniss is a symbol of hope for herself. Without her Katniss wouldn't have the pin.
6. Bruce Bogtrotter in Matilda: The kid eats a whole chocolate cake!!!!
7. Ilsa Hermann in The Book Thief: She has a tragic life and she is a real turning point character in Liesel's life. She was one character in a book that I just wanted to reach out and hug
8. The Nurse in Romeo and Juliet: I just like her because she has faith in love and hope and she is the mother figure for Juliet when she needed it rather than her real mother.
9. Merris Cromwell in The Demon's Covenant: She is very wise and wonderful with a real strength that you don't quite realise how much of a strength to some of the characters until towards the end of the story. READ THESE BOOKS :-)
10. Jenny in A Certain Slant of Light: She is a really unusual character because you get to know her without her even being there. You only just meet the real her briefly but you already know her.
