Friday Favorites: Side Characters

By: Cait Marie

Hello, hello! It’s time for another Friday Favorites. Last week’s prompt over at Something of the Book was “Favorite Side Characters,” and I missed it! Side characters are always my favorite, so I’m going to go ahead and just do it this week.

I actually did this list last year, but I’ve read over 100 books since then and there are newbies to add!

Here are my top 5 favorite side characters:

Magnus Bane/Alec Lightwood
The Shadowhunter Chronicles

Come on, y’all know my number one will never change. Also, I can’t separate them even for a list… I love my precious Malec! I guess they’re not really side characters now that they have their own series, but they were for over a decade.

City of Bones
City of Ashes
The Red Scrolls of Magic

Beckett Anderson
Redefining Me series and Discovering Me series

We first met the charismatic, lovable Becks in The N Word (Now titled Dating the Boy Next Door). Now he has his own book!! I love him so much, and this book was perfect.

Set to release September 25, 2019!

ARC Reviews:
The F Word
The N Word
The C Word
Dating Nashville

A Court of Thorns and Roses series

Cassian is the trouble-making sasshole of the Inner Circle. But this loveable goofball is also the commander of the Illyrian army, who’s feared by many. I cannot wait for the next book, which focuses on him and Nesta!

A Court of Thorns and Roses
A Court of Mist and Fury
A Court of Wings and Ruin
A Court of Frost and Starlight

Kenji Kishimoto
Shatter Me series

Have you ever had that character you immediately loved and then somehow you grew to love even more with each book? That’s Kenji for me. I love him with all my heart. I want him to be my best friend! I can’t wait until his novella, Reveal Me, comes out next month!

Shatter Me series (Books 1-3)
Restore Me
Defy Me

Cursebreakers series

Like Cassian, Grey (or Scary Grey as Harper in A Curse So Dark and Lonely calls him) is a fierce soldier. However, he’s also kind and caring. The next book is about him! My ARC of A Heart So Fierce and Broken has been staring at me for a couple weeks, and I NEED to get into it!

It’s set to release in January 2020.
