Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Today’s theme is Secondary Characters Who Deserve More Love
OK I am back from my first day at the office since March 2020 and as the floods damaged the railways I got a 5 hours commute! Needless to say my brain is fried and I’ll do my best to choose some favorite secondary characters!
Zuzana in Daughter of Smoke and Bones
The Bishop House in A Discovery of Witches (yes the house felt like a character!)
Mark Blackthorn in The Dark Artifices
Matthew in the Last Hour
Nick’s father in The Extrordinaries
Lehabah in Crescent City
Nina Zenik in Six of Crows
Selwyn in Legendborn
Ansel in Serpent | Dove.
The Thirteen in Throne of Glass
That’s it! Thanks for reading.
Oh yes, Zuzana was my favorite character in that series. I’d love to see her get her own story. Same with Nina from SofC.
i wish nina had more “screen time” in six of crows. i really enjoyed her character.
as always, great post.
Thank you Chelsea!
Hell yes to The Bishop House, Mark, Matthew, Lehabah (*sobs forever) and Nina!
How sad is it that I haven’t read any of these? Although I do plan on reading Serpent and the Dove soon. And I have been so tempted to read Cassandra Clare. I do love supporting characters and would love to see authors do their books more often.
Yes for more Nina! She was awesome in Six of Crows! 😀
From your whole list I’ve only read one book! And it’s been so many years since I read ToG that I don’t even remember The Thirteen. LOL
Nina is an absolute fan favorite, and I think after the second book, she deserves her own story.
