The Twelve Day of Christmas: 6 favourite characters of 2011

Good morning everybody! I'm here today with a list of my six favourite characters from books released in 2011, as day seven of my Twelve Days of Christmas feature. As always, feel free to join in - just let me know so I can give you a shout out!

1. Auntie Ida (Long Lankin - Lindsey Barraclough)

For being one of the most beautifully crafted and humanly flawed characters I've come across this year

2. The Eck (There is No Dog - Meg Rosoff)

For being comedy gold without speaking a word

3. Four (Divergent - Veronica Roth)

For being a genuine hottie, rather than an 'I've known you for five minutes and I'm passive aggressively abusive' love interest

4. Natalie Hargrove (The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove - Lauren Kate)

For being a bitch and absolutely rocking it

5. Ronnie (Being Billy - Phil Earle)

For unexpectedly making me cry a whole damn lot

6. Zoe (Choker - Elizabeth Woods)

For being wonderfully evil and seriously creeping me out


Tell me, who are your favourite characters of 2011?


  1. Ooh, I absolutely loved Four. Just seeing his name on your list makes me want to read Divergent again. A favourite character of mine (not a new release, but a book I read for the first time this year), has got to be Lennie from The Sky is Everywhere. She's just such a beautifully, flawed, grieving and heartbreaking soul, that every time I open that book, I feel like jumping right in to hug her. Love your 12 days of Christmas feature Carly! :)

  2. I adore Eck and Four, too. I didn't like Natalie at all, though.

  3. Still haven't read any of this books, although I really should read Divergent ;) One of my favourite characters this year was Cassel from Holly Black's Curse Workers series, although there are others, too ;)

  4. Zoe really creeped me out too! I loved that book so much because of her!

  5. Ronnie and Billy's relationship made me BAWL uncontrollably. If I were making a list of my favourite characters, he would definitely make my list too. As would Four! (for obviously different reasons that Ronnie)


Thank you kindly for the comment, you sweet thing.
