Books Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday: Favourite Minor Characters

September 11, 2017

What is Top 5 Wednesday?

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. Here is the link for the Goodreads group where you can find the list of topics and such. 

Favourite Minor Characters

2. The Shadow Queen by C.J Redwine

Snow White now has a younger brother and he is everything. Leo was such a fun character to read about. He was full of energy and positivity even in the most dire of situations. The Shadow Queen was a very dark book over all, which isn't surprising considering how dark the original Snow White fairytale was, and Leo provided the much needed comic relief.

3. The Wardstone Chronicles by Joseph Delaney

The Boggart is a character that is rarely seen but always heard. He looks after the Spook's house and is essentially a cook, cleaner, and protector. All he asks in return is that he gets one day a year off and gets to kill whoever trespasses on the house grounds. It's a simple life. When he does allow himself to be seen he takes the form of an overgrown furry tabby cat with a thundering purr. Everyone needs a Boggart.

4. Windwitch by Susan Dennard

Cam is one of the only trans characters that I've read about and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about him. Even if it was through another characters eyes. I'm hoping he gets his own POV one day or perhaps a novella. Now, I am fully aware that there has been a bit of a divide regarding how he was perceived by another characters, in particular Merik. Susan Dennard worked extensively with sensitivity readers in order to make her portrayal of a trans man as authentic as possible. Although Merik initially doesn't understand Cam's gender Cam calls him out on it and eventually Merik recognises Cam as a man. Though I cannot identify with this from a straight CIS woman I feel like this is a very positive portrayal of a trans man.

5. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

I adore Shazad. As the daughter of a general she's inherited all of his intelligence and more besides. But its never the first thing people notice in her -  instead they see her beauty. She knows this and though it infuriates her and those who truly know her, she uses it. She allows people to think that she has nothing more to offer than her looks and charm but underneath she's watching how they carry themselves, if theres a weakness she can exploit, what information she gain. Beauty, brains and lethal. Shazad is not a woman you want to mess with!

1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas

Asterin is my favourite of the Thirteen, if we exclude Manon that is. Like Manon she is a morally grey character -  all the Thirteen are. And they all still have a bit of humanity about them. Something that the other Ironteeth witches see as weakness. Asterin by far has the most heartbreaking of back stories and one of the most fleshed out. I won't explain what it is as its a bit of a spoiler but anyone who knows what I'm talking about please come and cry with me about it!
