Top Ten Favorite Characters in X Genre

Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish!

This week's topic is Top Ten Favorite Characters in X Genre, and the genre I chose was Paranormal Romance!

In no particular order, here are my selections:

1. Emma - Of Poseidon 

Emma is super funny, loves to swim, and has a really great personality. I fell in love with her in Of Poseidon, and I can't wait to see where her story goes next in Of Triton!

2. Clara - Unearthly

Not only is she an angel, Clara has a great outlook on life and has this way of cheering up people and just being awesome. I'm dying to know what happens to her in the rest of the series.

3. Ellie - Angelfire

She slays monsters with awesome swords and is very kick-butt. Need I say more?

4. Lena - Beautiful Creatures

Lena is so mysterious and quiet, but once you get to know her, she seems like an awesome, awesome character with all these powers and a need to protect people she loves. And since I saw the movie yesterday, I'm on a Caster Chronicles kick. Lena is fantastic!

5. Ethan - Beautiful Creatures

I think if I could pick one guy from YA literature to have as a friend, I would pick Ethan. Ethan is just really awesome and seems like somebody who would be great to have as a friend. Plus, I would get to see Lena if I were friends with Ethan, which I see as a total win. So I guess I want to be Link?

6. Blue - The Raven Boys

Does this count as paranormal romance? I would consider it PR. Even if Blue will kill the one she loves, she is epic and fantastic in every way throughout the book. 

7. Karou - Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Karou is just so weird and different, but I thought that she was a wonderful character in DoSaB. Even if I couldn't tell sometimes whether to root for her or against her, I couldn't help but really like Karou.

8. Eden - A Touch Mortal

Gosh, Eden is such a difficult character to describe. What I really liked about Eden was that she didn't take crap from anybody and could stand her ground, but also had her weak moments where she cried. Because those are what humans do. Leah Clifford did a fantastic job at creating Eden!

9. Calla - Nightshade

Calla is another kick-butt character who can also transform into a wolf (hello? Awesome points awarded). Gah, Calla is another one of my favorite characters.

10. Gemma - Wake

I love swimming, so when I started this series by one of my favorite authors ever and learned that one of our protagonist loves to swim (the cover also gives it away), I instantly connected to Gemma, and I adore her character. 

Did you do a Top Ten Tuesday post today? I'd love to see it; leave links in the comments!

Happy reading!
