Top Ten Most Memorable Secondary Characters

The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden, #2)

1. Jackal from the Blood of Eden series - I didn’t really pay much attention to Jackal in The Immortal Rules, but he totally stole the show in The Eternity Cure. He pretty much made the book for me.

Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #2)

2. Ziri from Days of Blood & StarlightZiri is just the cutest thing ever. He’s so sweet and nice and sad and overlooked. Ziri>>>Akiva, tbh.


3. Laurie from InvisibilityI hated Invisibility, but I thought Laurie, Elizabeth’s hilarious younger brother, was the one bright spot in the otherwise murky waters of the book.

I Capture the Castle

4. Topaz from I Capture the CastleI don’t remember all that much about Topaz except that she liked to play the lute in the nude on the parapets of the castle in the middle of the night. Memorable? I think so.

Naamah's Kiss (Moirin Trilogy, #1)

5. Jehanne from Naamah’s KissI like Jehanne way more than Bao. She may be tempestuous and spoiled, but she means well and it’s evident that she really does love and cherish Moirin in her own way.

First Test (Protector of the Small, #1)

6. Neal from the Protector of the Small quartet - I always wanted Kel and Neal to get together. I knew it wouldn’t happen, but I wanted it to. He was just so cute and they were best friends and it would have been adorable!

The Sky Is Everywhere

7. Gram from The Sky is EverywhereGram was very eccentric, which I liked. She was a welcome relief from some of the heavier subject matter in The Sky is Everywhere.

The Blue Girl (Newford, #15)

8. Pelly from The Blue GirlHe’s a mysterious “imaginary friend” who looks like a cross between a hedgehog and  a boy, with bunny ears and the tail of a monkey. ‘Nuff said.

Hex Hall (Hex Hall, #1)

9. Jenna from the Hex Hall trilogyJenna was my favourite character and I wish she’d been more involved later on in the books. She was a pink-loving, girly-girl, lesbian vampire. How could I possibly resist loving this girl?

Going Bovine

10. Balder the garden gnome from Going BovineHe’s a perpetually angry Norse god who has been cursed into the form of a talking garden gnome. Is there anything that isn’t memorable in that statement?


  1. Ooh, Topaz...I forgot about her. I Capture the Castle was so weird and awesome, and Topaz was one of the reasons. Great choice.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

    1. I read I Capture the Castle in elementary school and I have really bad book amnesia, so I actually don't remember much about the book except that I loved it and that the MC's family was cray. Between Topaz & Rose & the dad (whose name I can't remember) they had a lot of eccentricities!
