Happy Holidays, Wormies!
Veritas | Shades of Wicked
I’ve been intrigued by Veritas since she first appeared in The Night Huntress novels and she’s actually popped up in a few of the spin-off books! In Shades of Wicked, we get her awesome backstory!
Gilene | Phoenix Unbound
This book actually blew me away and I love Gilene! She was timid and resigned to her fate at first but then came into her own will and power as the booked develops. It’s one of my favorite character developments in all the books I read this year!
Maggie | Until Friday Night
While this is not a typical book that I would like, I was extremely surprised that I loved it so much! Maggie hasn’t spoken since the time when she witnessed something horrific happen in her life. I am always a fan of strength in young adults and Maggie had it in spades.
Addison | Getaway Girl
Getaway Girl really surprised me and I absolutely LOVE it. Addison was the stand-out for me in this book and I love her quirkiness and uniqueness and of course, her strength.
Gillie / When a Duke Loves a Woman
In a time when women weren’t allowed to own business, Gillie was a stand-out to me! She is not an aristocrat but she owns her own bar and does not want to marry because she knew that her husband would then own her property. Her strength and determination to be different from the norm were really amazing to read!
Ian / Shades of Wicked
When I read One Foot in the Grave, I was intrigued by the villain, Ian! Yes, SPOILER ALERT, he was the main villain in this book, but he was also Bones’ sire! So yes! I was super happy that he got his own series and we do read more about his backstory here. Also, he was the stand-out character in Into the Fire, the last book in the Night Prince novels.
The Dean Brothers / Sin Brothers Series
One of my bookish friends, Teresa introduced me to Rebecca Zanetti and I fell in love with the Dean brothers! I couldn’t even pick one! I think my favorite is Jory, but I still can’t pick which one is outstanding! Also, these men are super soldiers and I really love the premise of the series. And, can everybody say ALPHA?
Pestilence / Pestilence
OMG! Pestilence was a surprise to me because this book blew me away! Also, the character Pestilence was really interesting and I really love how he changed from being a god to human!
Zeke / The Failing Hours
Who would have guessed that I would love douchebags? But so far, Zeke is my favorite douchebag because he was actually pretty sweet and kind and it totally threw me off!
Cable / Recovered
I have my reasons loving Cable so much. I guess it’s because this sort of mirrors my life IRL? Anyway, Cable is pretty flawed even though he was privileged and I love how he actually transforms into a nice person. While he isn’t 100% perfect, he does make it work. And I love that epilogue!
Who are your favorite characters from this year?

I did really like that Abbi Glines book, and Maggie was a great character. I haven’t read Zeke’s book in the Douchebag series yet. I need to though. Great picks! You can check out my “captivating characters”, which I chose to do Book Boyfriends for, in the link below.

I initially thought I would hate Zeke, but he turned out to be a total sweetie!

I’m so happy to see Phoenix Unbound made your list, that book needs more love!
I have pestilence but was a bit nervous because I had problems with Rhapdsodic, but I’m super curious about the titular character!
YES! Phoenix Unbound really is sooo good! Also, Pestilence is really good. I started listening to Rhapsodic but I’m feeling so-so in the first 3 chapters so I have it on hold for now. It does feel like Rhapsodic is darker than Pestilence. But I highly recommend Pestilence!
