T5W #3: Characters I Defend

Top5Wednesday

Another week, another T5W! Here I am with another T5W guys this weeks topic was a little challenging but I’m really excited to show you guys the Characters I’ve spent forever defending. Top 5 Wednesday is a meme created by Lainey @ gingerreadslainey. To join in on the fun check out the goodreads group.


1. Tamlin: A Court of Mist and Fury

17927395

I know this book came out only a few weeks ago (don’t worry I won’t spoil anything) but after ACOMAF everyone is a little mad at Tamlin and I’m not one of those people. After everything that happened in the previous book his actions were pretty understandable in my eyes so I don’t know why everyone was tripping. All his actions were put under a microscope and cross-examined, it just wasn’t fair!

2. Harry Potter: The Harry Potter Series

I bet you’re like What?! Everyone loves Harry Potter! Why on earth would I need to defend him?! Well this is more of an IRL problem. I grew up in a very Christian community and I’ve spent a very long time defending my love of H.P. because everyone was convinced Harry Potter promotes the occult/was written by the devil himself (I mean honestly!) I’m Christian and I do get were all these people are coming from but Harry Potter is a character that shattered the boundaries of my imagination and showed me anything was possible, I always defend him for that. The books themselves shows us that good over evil always wins, love conquers all and all that jazz how could it possibly be evil.

3. Ethan: Beautiful Creatures

6304335

I know a lot of people didn’t like this book, especially this character [Ethan] but I loved this book and I especially loved Ethan. I love how the protagonist was shoved into this magical world without any powers of his own, it was a nice twist to what would have otherwise been an ordinary book, I can’t believe no one else can see this!

4. Holland: A Darker Shade of Magic

81eOs-MTAQL

I know everyone hates Holland in the Shades of Magic series but come on guys, being held against your will by a pair of psycho magicians can do things to a person. I definitely cut him a lot of slack, I don’t think its his fault he turned out the was he did.

5. Jason Grace: The Lost Hero

A lot of people refuse to give Jason a chance because of the fear that he won’t be as good as Percy Jackson. On the off chance they do give him a chance a lot of people still think he isn’t as great as Percy, I’m one of those people. Even though Jason will always come second to Percy in my eyes, he’s still a pretty darn good protagonist and for that reason I’ll defend him from any and all haters!


Yep, thats my Top 5 Wednesday for this week, thanks for reading guys and don’t forget to check me out on GoodreadsTwitter Bloglovin’.

  1. I’m with you as far as Holland goes, I kind of feel sorry for him as he always seems to be forced into an impossible position. Going to have to disagree on Harry though but not for the same reason. I just didn’t think he was that great. Hermione was the clever one, Ron brought the humour and Harry didn’t really bring anything. His successes were usually due to someone else or blind luck. He also spent far too long on the woe is me stuff 🙂

  2. I get what you mean about Tamlin! I adored him in the first book; he was such a lovely, caring person who genuinely adored Feyre and would do NOTHING to hurt her. Imagine my surprise when his character did a sharp 180 and turned kind of into a jerk. And while I didn’t agree with his actions in ACOMAF, I think what infuriated me the most was the injustice Maas did to him. Both Feyre and Tamlin had PTSD- and while she was coddled and adored, his mistakes were looked upon so unsympathetically. 😦 He deserved better.

    1. I read your version too and after all that Tamlin did in the first book he did deserve the benefit of the doubt. I totally agree with everything you said; Rhysand also did some pretty bad things too but somehow everything was forgiven and she couldn’t give Tamlin the same courtesy. 😕
