Top Ten Tuesday: Supporting Characters

By: Mariah Brown

This Top Ten post will be about the supporting characters of some of my favorite books.

Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter series, mainly Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling, is a wonderful and quirky character. She has her own look on life and has fun with it. I mean, come on, she wears radish earrings. She is a wonderful friend to Harry and helps him in more ways than one.

Grey in A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer is an amazing character. Grey helps Prince Rhen in many ways between getting him women and protecting Emberfall when needed. He is there to help no matter what.

Simon in City of Bones by Cassandra Clare is a character who should be involved more. I wish we could learn even more about his life and who he is. One thing we do know is that he is Clary’s best friend. This is an amazing part because there are even hints that Simon likes Clary as something more. Will it happen though?

Oliver in The Similars by Rebecca Hanover is a character that is not met until a cruel twist of fate occurs. You should read the book to find out more. He is best friends with Emma and passed away, but there are many points throughout the book mentioning him which help move the story along.

As I am obsessed with Harry Potter, I have another character who most people will not agree with being a Top Ten. Draco Malfoy who is sprinkled throughout all of the books as being Harry’s enemy. I love Draco because of his snarky attitude and because he eventually gets a taste of his own medicine by Mad Eye Moody.

Chiron in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lighting Thief by Rick Riordon. I like this character because he is helpful to Percy by providing the support and knowledge that is necessary. Chiron is both in Percy’s mortal world and at Camp Half-Blood.

Kenji Kishimoto in Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi is an amazing character who is supportive and can have a smart mouth at times. This you see more as you read the series. Kenji is friends with Adam Kent.

Ginny Weasley is another supporting character in Harry Potter who is inspirational. She is supportive of Harry no matter what he is doing and turns into this character that you cannot help but love.

Lucien in A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas is a character that has moments where he is smart and devious when he talks to Feyre.

Another Harry Potter favorite character is Neville Longbottom. He ends up gaining courage throughout the series, and he ends up being part of Dumbledor’s Army. He learns a lot of magic in the army and furthers his education.

I am a huge fan of Harry Potter. That is why there are a few different characters from the series on this list. The group of characters in the Harry Potter series are so abundant that you can find many supporting characters in it. Do you have a favorite Harry Potter supporting character?

Let me know who your favorite supporting characters are in the comments down below. I would love to start reading other books with some awesome supporting characters.
