Character Spotlight Mondays

This is a new segment I've been thinking about starting up. I want to get some variety onto this blog, so if you have any ideas please let me know. Anyway, so what this will be is basically a segment I do on Mondays where I talk about a book character (or characters) I'm really liking at the moment or ones that are my favorite characters in general. Feel free to share you opinion on the character(s), I'd love to know what you think of them!

I'm going to start by warning you that I have a very dark taste in characters. Whether it be in books or movies, I always fall for the bad guy. Sometimes I like the good guy as well but I usual obsess over the villains, a fact that disturbs my friends to know end.

Today, keeping that in mind, I would like to talk about the male characters I love in the Gone series by Michael Grant.

Sam Temple: I figured I'd start with the guy your supposed to like. Although I can't condone his choice in women I can't help but love Sam as a character. He's so human and in being so imperfect which is really what I like about him, you don't see that often in a male lead. Plus, who doesn't want to give him the worlds biggest hug sometimes?

Caine Soren: I warned you. Yes, I do like Caine- probably more so than Sam. I can't put my finger on exactly what I find so endearing about him but he might just be my favorite character in the series. He knows he's bad, and he owns it.

There are so many characters in this series that I can't list all my favorites, but those are the two big ones. Though I also have taken a sick liking to Drake, the baddest of the bad, and Edilio because he's such a sweetie.

  1. Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Legend, Enclave, the Tamora Pierce books series (all of them), divergent, Arcadia Awakens, BZRK, Michael Sullivan's Theft of swords (an awesome fantasy), and of course I recommend the Gone series!
    Sadly, I took a sick liking to Drake and Caine as well...
