Hello bookworms! I’m Nia and today I’m going to be talking about some of my favorite funny characters.
I love me a good hilarious characters, but I find them quite difficult to find, to be honest. I just don’t read or watch a lot of comedy shows or books, so it’s a bit hard for me to find those types of characters. However, I have a few I wanted to mention in this post because I love them so much and they deserve to be talked about, hence why I ended up choosing this topic for this Top 5 Wednesday.
Also I’m sorry these past few days I haven’t been posting much. I’ve been very busy and it was a bit hard for me to sit down and write posts, but hopefully this month will be so much better.
If you aren’t familiar with Top 5 Wednesday, it is a Goodeads group now currently run by Sam over at ToughtsOfTomes on Youtube, where each week they give you a topic and you talk about 5 books that fit that category. You can join the group here if you want to participate!
Without any further ado, let’s start with this week’s topic!
Kenji | Shatter Me
My thoughts: Kenji is one of the best and funniest characters I’ve ever read. He adds so much to the series that I could write a list about. He’s so pure and funny, and has an incredible relationship with Juliette throughout the series, and not only he’s funny but he’s a very loyal friend, and I think that’s what makes Kenji so special: that he is quirky and hilarious when he has to but also that he’s there when his friends need him.
I have a curse
I have a gift
I am a monster
I’m more than human
My touch is lethal
My touch is power
I am their weapon
I will fight back
Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.
Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.
My thoughts: Lucifer is an incredible main character. The show itself has the perfect amount of drama and comedy at the same time, and though that combination usually doesn’t go as well as expected, I think in this show it does. I loved Lucifer since episode one, but as I kept watching the show I found him more and more complex, and though of course he’s quite sarcastic and funny at times, he has a lot of layers, and that’s what I think is the best in a character.
Jake Peralta | Brooklyn 99
My thoughts: Jake Peralta is simply hilarious. I’ve started watching the show mostly because it was recommended to me, but also because when I saw a scene of an episode I couldn’t stop laughing. I just love the entire cast of characters. They all are so funny and have such great interactions and relationships that I cannot stop watching it. But I think especially either Peralta, Holt or Terry are the characters I laugh with the most. Nonetheless, it’s a series full of hilarious characters, and I highly recommend it.
Mal | Play
My thoughts: Out of the four books I’ve read in this series, I think this one is the funniest one. And that’s because of Mal. He has a very unique way to be and to interact with people (especially with his love interest), and there were times when I was laughing out loud because they were just simply hilarious. I just love him so much.
Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast—at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn’t plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn’t count on finding the one right girl.
Anne Rollins never thought she’d ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls—especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn’t end well. No matter how hot he is. Or could it?
Magnus Bane | The Mortal Instruments
My thoughts: Magnus was such an incredible addition to the series, in my opinion. Though in this series he’s more a secondary character, I think he still added so much to the books with his personality. Not only his relationship with Alec is beautiful and pure, but he also has incredibly funny lines throughout the books, and I think that’s why I love him so much.
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…
Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.
