Top Ten Most Memorable Secondary Characters


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the brilliant The Broke and The Bookish. They come up with a list weekly, for us to complete. This week’s list is Top Ten Most Memorable Secondary Characters. This took a lot of thinking but I’ve finally come up with 10. I’m so intrigued to see what other bloggers come up with this week!

In no particular order here are my top ten most memorable secondary characters!


RueThe Hunger Games–Β  I thought Rue was adorable. She was small, young and underestimated. She survived for a lot longer than people had expected. I also loved her friendship with Katniss.


CinnaThe Hunger Games- Cinna was Katniss Everdeen’s stylist. I thought he was a fabulous character.


SadieTwenties Girl- I love a bit of chick-lit every now and again and Sophie Kinsella is one of my favourite authors of that genre. In this book Sadie is a spirit, the great-aunt of the protagonist. Sadie was such a great character.


SuzeConfessions of A Shopaholic/The Secret Dreamworld of A Shopaholic- Suze is the best friend of the protagonist. She’s a brilliant character. I’d like her to be my friend!

The next two characters are from Harry Potter.

Luna Lovegood and Neville LongbottomHarry Potter series– I really loved this characters. Especially Luna. She’s just so quirky!

Kenji Kishimoto- Shatter Me and Unravel Me -A great secondary character.


Tris’s MumDivergent- I absolutely loved Tris’s mum. Such a wonderful character.


WendyUnearthly- I really liked Clara’s friend Wendy. It was a shame there wasn’t much of her in Boundless!


Daniel- The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer- I really liked Mara’s older brother Daniel. I loved how protective he was!

  1. You’ve got such a great list! If I’m being honest, I could have filled my entire list with characters from Harry Potter. πŸ™‚

  2. Yay for Rue! ARGH how could I have forgot Cinna?!?!

    At first Sadie REALLY annoyed me but I loved her by the end of Twenties Girl!

    Luna & Neville = yessssssssssssssss πŸ™‚

    Great list! Thanks for stopping by ours earlier! Have a great Tuesday πŸ™‚

  3. Rue and Cinna! I love them too. πŸ™‚ I’m so, so, so happy to see Neville Longbottom in your list!! I love Luna too, but Neville is so awesome! Great list Chrissi!

  4. RUE AND CINNA! They were so amazing as characters. I think I loved them even more in the movies πŸ™‚ And Kenji, definitely πŸ˜€ Still my favorite character in the series. Neville and Luna are so cute together, even in real life πŸ™‚ And Matt Lewis ohmygod. He is SO attractive nowadays! XD Love your list Chrissi!

  5. Great list! Love your HP and HG picks. I’ve also seen Shatter Me on more than one list. I have that on my kindle but haven’t gotten around to it, yet. Guess I should, huh? Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy Tuesday!

  6. Ahhh I bask in the glory that is your list!

    I am particularly fond of Luna – all my friends back in school used to tease me and call me Luna, but I quite like Luna so it was alright with me!

  7. Lots of good choices here! Love Cinna, and Luna and Neville, but I was trying to keep my list down to one person per series/book. Otherwise we’d be here all day! There are a lot on here that I don’t recognize though, so that means I need to keep reading!

  8. Of the books here that I’ve read, I definitely agree! Rue and Cinna are great choices (Rue always makes me cry 😦 ), and I love Neville and Luna too! I wasn’t a big fan of the Mara Dyer book, but I agree that Daniel was a great character. Nice list!

  9. Tris’ mom was pretty awesome. Rue as well, which I almost included on my list. Harry Potter Series and The Hunger Games Series are among my favorite books of all time. I was tempted to make my list half HP minor characters and half from HG. Haha! πŸ˜€

  10. Out of all of these I’ve only read The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and Divergent, but I agree with each character you chose for them! Luna and Rue both made my list (love them)! And of course, Tris’s mother was awesome in Divergent. It was great how she had her own history and was a strong female character herself. The only one I’ve never completely fallen for is Neville. In the movies I grew to love him, but for some reason in the books he never stood out to me. Not sure why! Of course, it’s been a long time. Maybe if I reread them I’ll fall in love with him again!

  11. I love Cinna and Rue, Wendy too, and Tris’ mom as well! But none of them made my list this week – there are so many great secondary characters I could have filled a whole book with them πŸ™‚

    Because of my love for secondary characters, I participate in a weekly meme called Sidekick Showcase, where there’s a theme each week, and we choose a secondary character based on the theme. It’s a lot of fun, you should check it out πŸ˜‰

    Have a great Sunday!
