Friday Favorites – Characters That Just Make You Smile

Lizbeth Rose – Gunnie Rose Series by Charlaine Harris

Lizbeth is a strong female character that knows her worth and what is important to her. She’s brave, responsible, trustworthy, and honest. She’s great with a gun, isn’t scared of bullies, and works hard to do what’s right. I love her personality and how she approaches life’s complications (especially when dealing with attractive Russian Gregori’s).

Waldo Butters – Dresden Files Series by Jim Butcher

Butters is probably my favorite character in all of the Dresden Files, even more so than Harry himself. He’s adorable, intelligent, and always makes me smile when he shows up on the pages.

“We are not going to die.”

Butters stared up at me, pale, eyes terrified. “We’re not?”

“No. And do you know why?” He shook his head. “Because Thomas is too pretty to die. And because I’m too stubborn to die.” I hauled on the shirt even harder. “And most of all because tomorrow is Oktoberfest, Butters, and polka will never die.”

Adolin Kholin – Stormlight Archive Series by Brandon Sanderson

I can’t say whether or not Adolin is the best character in the series, but I sure do enjoy his moments in the books. He’s charming, charismatic, and full of concern over his wardrobe options. Adolin tends to be honorable and strives to do right in a world where it’s so easy to do wrong. He is a fierce friend, dedicated countryman, and probably the best duelist in all of Roshar.

♩♫♪♫♩ – Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir

Probably one of my favorite characters of all time, I cannot help but crack a smile whenever I read passages featuring him. No spoilers for those who have not yet read this book, but for those of you who have, you know who I’m talking about. ♫♩♩♪♩♬

Maggie Hoskie – The Sixth World Series by Rebecca Roanhorse

Another strong female character makes this list. Maggie is a Navajo post-apocalyptic survivor who uses clan powers to fight monsters. She’s a take-no-crap kind of chick who is not afraid to get dirty when things get messy. I love how her strong attitude mixes with her core beliefs in a way that seems to make her both formidable and vulnerable at the same time.
