Throwing Seeker to one side, I figured I'd leap in on a Mini Challenge.
This one comes courtesy of Til We Read Again, and I found it far more difficult than it should have been, due to the way I wanted to list really awesome, classy books, and found myself coming up with nothing but fluff.
I suppose we can see where my reading tastes lie, eh?
Listed below is a series of questions. Please put your nominees for the following categories. Please list the books in which the characters reside;)
Favorite Female Character in a book: Deerskin (née Lissar) from Robin McKinley's Deerskin
Favorite Male Character in a book: Oh, you *know* it's Richard from any one of Terry Goodkind's books.
Favorite Side Kick in a book: That would be Bess Marvin, from The Secret at Shadow Ranch, or any one of Carolyn Keene's Nancy Drew books. She's always described as being pretty, and easily-frightened... and slightly plump. I relate. ;)
Favorite Couple in a Book: Aaron and Darvish from The Fire's Stone = omg twoo luv!!
Favorite Book Series: Redwall, by Brian Jacques. Even though I haven't kept up with the more recent books, the countless (and countless and countless) hours I spent reading the first six or seven definitely place the series as my number one. (What? I can't recite all the poems from them, or anything... no....)
Favorite Author: I am a Mercedes Lackey girl through and through--anyone who can keep me busy reading over two decades rocks pretty solid.
Favorite Book Cover: Planet X, Michael Jan Friedman. Guys, this cover is EPIC.
Favorite Book of 2009: Stitches by David Small. I actually read this during the last Readathon, and it is still haunting me.
What about you guys?
