Today's Top Ten Tuesday is all about secondary characters. To me a secondary character is like a supporting actor...he/she helps the main character be their best and/or move the plot forward. So with that criteria, here are my top ten secondary characters:
1. Calpurnia from To Kill a Mockingbird--She really keeps the family together!
2. Diane Barry from Anne of Green Gables--I love her and she helps Anne be the best character!!
3. Melanie from The Host--Because she is just really a body....and kind of a mind....I thought it is a good secondary character to Wanderer.
4. Maximilian Kohler from Angels and Demons--Because of Max the story moves forward. He is very important to moving the plot forward.
5. James and Lily Potter from the Harry Potter series--They are not alive for really any of the books, but they support Harry throughout all of the books and are forefront in his mind.
6. Mrs. Everdeen from The Hunger Games series-- She is not in the books very much, but I love the influence that she seems to have on Katniss.
7. Cinna from The Hunger Games series--I could not just pick one character from this series. I loved Cinna, and I think he was a great motivation for Katniss.
8. Hannah from Little Women--She is the March's cook and really seems to do well for the girls and effectively becomes their second mom.
9. Mrs. Bennett from Pride and Prejudice- As Elizabeth's mom, she is a great influence on her and her personality.
10. Lydia from Pride and Prejudice- As Elizabeth's sister who runs away, she is really what brings Elizabeth and Darcy together!
