For something a little different...

1. Best Villain [Every story has a villain, but these villains were bad in the worst ways.]
Rogerson, Dreamland by Sarah Dessen

2. Best Evil Lair [Boats, caves, castles, visible, invisible! Whatever and wherever they are, they’re the ultimate form of sinister lodging.]
Malfoy Manor. I mean, come on, the man's got peacocks.

3. Most Helpless Heroine [Let’s face it: most leading ladies couldn’t find their way out of a paper bag, but these girls are completely helpless!]
Bella, Twilight

4. Best Couple [Romeo and Juliet, Samson and Delilah, Mickey and Minnie, Brad and Angelina; some couples are just meant to be… And these nominees are no exception!]
Owen and Annabel, Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

5. Best Kiss
Ron and Hermione, Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

6. Most Angst in a Series [Sometimes everyone feels like they’re lives are a bit stressful, but these cranky, angry, hormonal characters take it to a whole new level.]
haha, I'm going to go with the entirety of the Sweet Valley series. ANGSTFEST >.<

7. Best Battle/Fight [Violence is never the answer, but if it comes to that make it exciting! These fight scenes left us wanting the next swing of the battle ax!] about the ending battle of the Cirque Du Freak series, by Darren Shan.

8. Character With the Most Hardcore Powers [Some were born to cast spells, while others can’t help but hear every thought around them! The flyers, the shape shifters, the invincible, too! These characters just aren't human… they’re superhuman.]
I rather like Jasper's power to manipulate human emotions in the Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer

9. Best Comic Relief Character [When everything comes crashing down.. when black clouds move in.. when nothing seems to be going right.. This character knows the way to find the funny.]
I'm trying very hard not to do HP& Twilight...but Fred & George Weasley from HP

10. Biggest Badass [Even Chuck Norris is scared of these thoroughly great characters.]
Neville Longbottom

11. Biggest Backstabber [“Et tu, brute?” These Benedict Arnolds brought backstabbing to a whole new level.]
Tally Youngblood, Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

12. Best Parent/Mentor [Some parents would go through hell and high water for their children. Some fictional ones literally have! These parents are truly incredibly.]
Mr. Freeman, Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

13. Best Creature [Dragons, demons, fairies, wolves, vamps, cats! If they’re not human, they count!]
Alice Cullen, Vampire.

14. Trouble Magnet [wherever these characters go, trouble seems to stick to them like white on rice.]
Jinx from Jinx by Meg Cabot

15. Best Character in a Supporting Role
I'm going with Owen Armstrong, Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

16. Best Characteress in a Supporting Role
Lilly Moscovitz from The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot

17. Best Character in a Leading Role
This makes me realize exactly how very few novels I've read with male main characters.
Let's go with Holden Caulfield from Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

18. Best Characteress in a Leading Role
She's dead, but Hannah Baker in Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

19. Breakthrough Character [These characters have only been in one book(so far) but they sure made their marks!]
Let's go with Renesmee Cullen, Breaking Dawn. Caused quite the stir.

20. Best Team/Crew [Some people just can’t do it alone. And why would they if they have such an incredible team to get the job done?]
The Marauders from Harry Potter

21. Best Cast of Characters [In these books, there just wasn’t a single character that wasn’t interesting. Whether you loved them or loved to hate them; they were awesome]
Mediator series, by Meg Cabot

22. Vanity Award [Sure, we loved these characters… but they definitely loved themselves more…]
Bella, Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer

23. Best One Liner [Sure, anyone can tell a joke… But it takes a really funny character to deliver one of these zingers!]
Just because you've got the emotional range of a teaspoon, Ron, doesn't mean we all have. -Hermione Granger

24. The RIP award for Best Deceased Character [They’re dead to the point of no return (or re-birth).]
Remus Lupin, Deathly Hallows by JKR

25. The Damn It Award for the Character that Angers the Most Fans By Not Being Real [… if only :( ]
Not myself personally, but Edward Cullen seems to anger a LOT of fans for being fictional

26. Favorite Character We Love to Hate [Sure, we hate them… But, really, would it be half as fun without them? I think not.]
Severus Snape.

27. Most Lied to Character [There was a truth party and these characters just weren’t invited.]
I don't know why, but I feel like Annabel from Just Listen by Sarah Dessen would fit this one well.

I'll have a review up shortly :)


  1. Nice choices! Most Helpless Heroine cracked me up! Completey agree though, Bella probably couldn't fight her way out of a paper bag.

  2. I completely agree with the most helpless heroine. And I love Owen from Just Listen. He and Wes are my favorite guys from books by Sarah Dessen!
