Top Ten Most Memorable Secondary Characters

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

It's been a while since I participated in TTT, but it's good to be back and it's always fun to think back over the books I've read and remember them.

Top Ten Most Memorable Secondary Characters

1. Sam Hawkens, Dick Stone, Pitt Holbers, Dick Hammerdull, lange Davey and dicken Jemmy (all from Karl May's wild west adventures)
Ralf Wolter as Sam Hawkens from the Karl May movies

2. Monster (from Heartless by Anne Elisabeth Stengl, though he'd scorn the idea that he's a secondary character; he plays a bigger role in all the other books)

3. Nellie Olson (from On the Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder)

4. The Castle (from Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George)

5. Dr. Watson (from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Connan Doyle)

6. Aunt Josephine (from Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery)

7. The Seniors: Gram, Morty, Velma, Peg and William (from My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade)

And I think I've completed my ten with number 1 containing six characters and number 7 having five. Who are your favorite secondary characters?

  1. There are so many characters one could pick from the Anne of Green Gables series. Aunt Josephine is a great pick. -miathereader.com

    1. Very true, those books are full of great characters!

  2. I am completely intrigued by a castle being a character. I just checked out Tuesdays at the Castle, definitely going to read that one!

    1. It's a fun story! Glad I could bring it to your attention. Enjoy!
