Best Male Characters

So, two winners in this category, although I would have dearly loved to have fifty or so. Jace from The Mortal Instruments, by Cassandra Clare, and Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird, take the honors here. Jace is someone who has stolen the hearts of readers everywhere, and it's not just because he's hot - it's because he is strong and sarcastic and vulnerable and brave and shows us that sometimes it's good to be an angst-ridden teenager. And then there's Atticus - someone who is gentlemanly and fierce and moral and brave and shows us love and hate and compassion and humor, who makes me think that he is the best role model anyone could ever have.

Who are your favorite male characters?


  1. Jace Wayland from The Mortal Instruments
    Sonny Flannery from Wondrous Strange
    Tamani from Spells

  2. Jace, most definitely. Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston, right? And Spells from Aprilynne Pike? Do you recommend those series?

  3. Both really awesome books! Jace is amazing!

  4. Anonymous - Well, can't argue with that ;)
