Something new on the blog again! I know I used to do just review, but I figured that gets a bit old and boring. I'll still do reviews, but I'll try to mix it up with more fun and random posts - like the Top 5 Wednesday's posts that can be found in this Goodreads group.
So in honour of April 1st, here are my top 5 Jokester characters (which are honestly just the funniest characters I read, not the pranksters):
1. Astrid Krieger from Firecracker by David Iserson
Oh my gosh. At the time of writing this post, I've only read a few chapters of this book and already she is my number one. This narrator is hilarious in a total not trying to be hilarious way. She's funny and spunky and
2. Frankie Landeau-Banks from The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
I mean, does anyone do pranks better than Frankie? Yeah I think not. Frankie is the ultimate prankster and does it with a feminist agenda as well - what is not to love?Some of my favourite moments in the book are the pool prank and of course the final prank - which is a massive spoiler so I'll stay hush - that really shows the whole school that you cannot mess with Frankie.
3. The Weasley Twins from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
I think these are on everyone's list. They even opened a joke shop because they are known to be so funny. My favourite moment is when the twins finally decide to leave Hogwarts and literally go out with a bang. I thought (and hoped) poor little Umbridge would pee herself!
Though this list is not made for prankster and joke-tellers, Fred and George Weasley are both normally funny and pranksters.
4. Percy Jackson from the Percy Jackson series by R.R. Riordan
I know. I can't make a single list without including Percy. He might not do pranks or really joke all that much, but he has sarcasm down. Like perfectly down. He made me laugh several times while reading the series and I think it's one of the main reasons why so many people love the books.
My favourite moment? I don't have one. It's just every single thing he says. Especially when he tries to be romantic - and fails miserably at it.
5. Levi from Fangirl
Oh Levi - you are such a cutie. Your sense of humour made Cat, and every Fangirl reader, fall in love with you. You might not be the funniest character ever, but your sense of humour combined with your amazing personality means you deserve a spot on this list.
So that's my list. Who did I forget? Who shouldn't have been on here? You can always let me know in the comments :)
