Today’s Top Five Wednesday is all about our favorite jokesters or funny characters. The five characters below may or may not be considered, but they’ve become memorable characters for me for their humor and smart remarks (some which are featured below).
Jesper from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – GIVE ME ALL OF THE ARTWORK AND PILLOWS WITH THIS PLEASE:
” “Has anyone noticed this whole city is looking for us, mad at us, or wants to kill us?”
“So?” said Kaz.
“Well, usually it’s just half the city.” ”
Scott from We Are Still Tornadoes by Michael Kun and Susan Mullen – I think Scott’s sense of humor could be hit or miss from some readers, but for me, Scott’s jokes instantaneously cheered me and Cath up. We Are still Tornadoes is my most recent read that’s made me laugh out loud.
Levi from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – I hold many Fangirl quotes close to my heart, but one that instantly pops into mind is one of Levi’s gems:
” “Have you met Cather?” Levi said to Reagan, his face still shining with amusement. “She spits hot fire.” “
Thorne from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer – Each character in the TLC gang has some sort of standout trait, and for Thorne, it’s his jokes in all the right and wrong moments.
Polly from Something Like Happy by Eva Woods – Something Like Happy is one of those heart-breaking, yet heart-warming novels, and the latter feeling results from Polly’s quick remarks. I still have this one flagged in my copy:
” “She waved at him as he limped on, brows knit fiercely and shoulders pumping forward.
“Oh, I love you, Dr. McGrumpy! I definitely won’t look up your kilt if you collapse!”
