Top 5 Tuesday: Favorite Characters U – Z

Hey, guys!
It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
This is the final T5T for the month and for this little series where I get to talk about my favorite characters!

U – Umbridge from the Harry Potter Books

This is a bit of a cheat but please bear with me. I couldn’t for the life of me think of another character with U. While Umbridge should be filed under D for Dolores, this kind of works as everybody just refers to her as Umbridge anyway. 😉
She’s one of the most well-written antagonists and downright terrifying. Even though she is certainly not likable she is one of my favorite villains!

V – Valkyrie from the Skulduggery Pleasant Books

I’m only two books into this series but I already adore my new favorite detective team. Valkyrie Kane is super badass and funny. I can’t wait to read more about her!

W – Winter from the Lunar Chronicles Books

Of course, I also had to include a character from the Lunar Chronicles. Winter is amazing and surprised me so much along the way.

X/Y – Yennefer from the Witcher books

I couldn’t think of anybody with X, so you only get Y from me. After watching the show, reading all the books, and finishing the games, Yennefer has become one of my favorite magical characters. She is so badass and does not take shit from anybody.

Z – Zelda from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Comics

Z was also rather difficult to find a character for. So, the only one I could think of was Zelda Spellman. You know her as Sabrina’s aunt featured prominently in all comics, shows and movies about the teenage witch. I’ve always liked her no matter with adaptation I got to witness her in. Most recently that included these comics!

    • For all the other letters I used the first letter of the characters’ first names. So, it kind of felt like cheating that I chose Umbridge for U, when according to my own rules I should have filed her under D for Dolores. 🙈


  1. I love Auntie Zelda SO SO MUCH. I discovered her character last year & since then I’ve had such an enormous embarrassing crush on her omg ❤


  2. Man, never in my life as a reader did I hate anyone more than Umbridge. Wow, that is a classic villain. She was such a BITCH!!!! Part of me still wished that after the events of the last book, McGonagall would be the one to capture her and shoot four stunning spells at her as payback. I will also add that I wished Imelda Staunton received an Oscar nod or all of the accolades for her performance in the film versions. Hands down, she was perfect for that role and made me hate that character even more.
