Top 10 Most Memorable Secondary Characters

Top Ten Most Memorable Secondary Characters
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

For a person who doesn't like talking animals...there are two on my list.  Interesting.  For some reason, I had a bit of trouble with choosing my memorable secondary characters.  I kept blanking.  Yes, I have read a book before.  So after much deliberation (and review of my Goodreads account) here are ten of my favorite secondary characters.

1) Luna Lovegood
Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
 She's sweet and sincere, but kind of bonkers.  Love her.

 2) Death
The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
 He's observant, patient, and surprisingly endearing.

3) Pickwick the Dodo
Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde
She might not talk, but she's wicked awesome, especially without feathers.
 
4) Cheshire Cat
Alice in Wonderland  by Lewis Carroll
 Totally creeps me out in an awesome way.

5) Isaac
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I very much want to play video games with Isaac.

 
6) Mrs. Whatsit
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle
Underneath all of those scarves is a wise, wacky lady.

7) Grimalkin
Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa
So snarky, so mischievous yet so helpful.

 
8) Footnote narrator
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Brilliant.

9) Meriadoc Brandybuck
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
A little bit goofy, but in the end a lot brave.

10)  Elvis
Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz
He's the "king," even if he is a little bit dead.
