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–  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.

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!

Unravel Me


How did I get it?:
I bought it!


tick tick tick tick tick it’s almost time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She’s finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam’s life.


I enjoyed Shatter Me, the first book in this series, much more than I expected to. This meant that I had very high expectations for Unravel Me. Luckily I wasn’t let down by the sequel. Tahereh Mafi is n incredible writer. Unravel Me is full of action, twists and romance. It had me jumping from Team Adam to Team Warner. Argh! I’m still unsure now which ‘team’ I fall on. I think what makes this series so good for me, is quite simply Tahereh’s writing. It’s a completely different style compared to other authors. Her characters seem so real.

Juliette finally feels free at Omega Point, a place where there are many people with special gifts. She doesn’t feel as isolated. However, it’s not all plain sailing for Juliette. There’s a war coming closer and closer and she’s wrapped up within it. Juliette has some important decisions and sacrifices to make.

Juliette seems a lot stronger and more confident in Unravel Me. I love that she has a great sense of humour despite everything that is happening to her. She never gives in or gives up. I really liked Kenji as a supporting character, again the humour added to the story was much needed, especially as it is quite an intense read.

As I mentioned before I’m torn between wanting Adam or Warner for Juliette. I keep thinking I prefer one over the other but then Tahereh writes something that puts me off one, or completely makes me melt for the other! I’m intrigued to see what happens next in this series.

Unravel Me is addictive, fast-paced and intense. It’s definitely a fantastic follow up to Shatter Me.
Would I recommend it?:
Of course!
