While writing my Pick One: Book Series blog post, I was inspired to pit fictional characters against each other. Enjoy!
Peeta or Gale? Hunger Games
They’re both cool characters. Younger Herminia just thought Gale was cooler.
Edward or Jacob? Twilight
Probably Jacob. I’m old, but I believe younger me was a bigger fan of the latter.
Dorian or Chaol? Throne of Glass
I liked Chaol’s character and his relationship with Celaena.
Rhysand or Tamlin? A Court of Thorns and Roses
Rhysand. He was more interesting to me even in the first book.
Darrow or Sevro? Red Rising
Darrow is amazing, but Sevro is somehow even more amazing. But I love them to pieces.
Minho or Newt? The Maze Runner
Minho in the books, Newt in the movies. So much got lost in the film adaptations. It’s such a shame.
Brenda or Theresa? The Maze Runner
Theresa in both the books and movies. She had greater depth to her character.
Robert. I’ve said this before, and I’m going to say it again: I love the older brother’s brain. I need a series that exclusively follows him everywhere.
Safiya or Iseult? The Witchlands
Iseult. She helped me remember the word, homeostasis, which I coincidentally learned in my biotechnology class. That’s enough to win me over. I have low expectations, okay.
Clary or Isabelle? The Mortal Instruments
Isabelle all the way. She’s one of the few characters I grew fonder of.
This was such a struggle to write. I hope you appreciate my suffering.
