The book drought continues and I bring you the second top ten Sunday. This week I’ll be sharing some of the funniest (and most compelling) protagonists from the books I have read in 2011.
They are, in no particular order:
1. Taylor Markham from Jellicoe Road – Melina Marchetta
2. Mercy from Mercy by Rebecca Lim
3. D. J. Schwenk from The Dairy Queen trilogy by Catherine Gilbert Murdoch
4. Payton Gritas from Sean Griswold’s Head by Lindsey Leavitt
5. Han Alister from Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima
6. Princess Raisa from Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima
7. Briony from Chime by Franny Billingsley
8. Nalia from The False Princess by Eilis O’Neal
9. Kat from Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis
10. Natasya from Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan
I was going to explain why these characters have achieved a spot on the list but I think you should find out for yourself. If you haven’t read any of these books… what are you waiting for?
