T5W: Favourite Minor Characters

Top 5 Wednesday was originally created and run by Lainey aka gingerreadslainey (Youtube channel) but it is now being run by Sam aka Thoughts on tomes (Youtube channel). Each week there is a different topic. You can check out the groups Goodreads page here for any more information and the future topics. This week’s topic is favourite minor characters. To be entirely honest I am completely sure about the difference so some may be considered side characters. It turns out I only came up with four but I thought I’d share them anyway. Let’s get started.
  1. Web from the Realm of the Elderlings series by Robin Hobb – I find this character quite intriguing and I would love to know more about him. He first appears in Golden Fool.
  2. Sanar and Ryelle from the Old Kingdoms trilogy by Garth Nix – I don’t know if these are considered side or minor characters, but I thought I’d include them anyway. Again I think they are really interesting characters.
  3. Risana from the Dandelion Dynasty trilogy by Ken Liu – I loved this character so much and wanted to see so much more of her in these books.
  4. Boo Radley from To Kill a Mockingbird – this is a tricky one as I think Boo can be seen as quite an important character, but as he is so reclusive I thought I would include him anyway.


That’s all I have to share with you guys for today. It was actually a little tricky coming up with answers this time as it’s tricky to decide whether they are considered a minor character or a side character. Anyway I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.

  1. Ah yes, Web 🙂 There are so many minor characters from Hobb’s works that I am interested in! She’s great at writing characters in general so that’s probably why 😀 I always liked Lacey, for example. And the crow Motely from Hobb’s newest trilogy.


    1. I totally agree. There are so many interesting characters in her books. Ooh I haven’t read her latest trilogy yet – I’m still working my way through the Rain Wild Chronicles 🙂
