In the winter, anywhere inside where I can curl up under a blanket.
Alternatively, sitting next to the fireplace at my parents house, also in the winter.

Where are your favorite places to read?

It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s topic is Secondary/Minor Characters Who Deserve More Love.

Marco from The Awakening by Nora Roberts – I think all her books definitely have lovable side characters but Marco is easily one of my favorites. I can’t wait to see more of him in the next book.

Lehabah from House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas – She’s hilarious and awesome and I love her so much.

Rudy from Aru Shah and the Tree of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi – He’s super funny and just wants to be part of the group so bad.

Iko from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyers – She’s amazing and definitely one of my favorites from this series.

Cat Tyburn from The Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima – I didn’t like her much at first but she grew on me as the books progressed.

Rodge from Skyward by Brandon Sanderson – His friendship with Spensa is awesome but I really loved his banter with M-bot.

Lee Scoresby from His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman – I loved him so much and (more than a decade after first reading these) still want to cry when I think about him.

Nikolai Lantsov from The Shadow and Bone trilogy by Leigh Bardugo – I loved him both at Sturmhond and Nikolai and can’t wait to read the King of Scars duology.

These are all I could come up with this week. What secondary characters do you love?
