30 Days of Books :: Day 15

I'm back! I know, I know, my blogging is such scatterbrained posting, isn't it? I should really get better at planning out my posts, but that's a thought for another day! Today, we're back to the 30 days of books. I might get these done before Christmas, but I'm a doubting it currently. Perhaps I'll finish by the end of January! One can hope, right? ;)

Day 15 :: Your favorite male character

I'd say it's mostly John Thornton, but I'm pretty fond of Nicholas Higgins too! (from North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell) So I'm choosing both of them. :) I love Mr. Thornton for how he loves so well and completely, plus he's such a good man, and a smart one as well. To be able to raise himself from poverty to a mill owner is no small feat! As for Higgins, I love how his gruff exterior covers a heart of tenderness.

Most of all I love watching these two characters slowly come to respect each other and become friends! Their friendship is one of the highlights of the story for me. They both are awesome, but together they are AWESOME. ;)

Do you have a favorite male character? Do share!


  1. Mmmmmm. . . Mr. Thornton. . .mmmmmm!

  2. Even though I didn't like North and South (book), I did like Mr. Thornton. And, I especially liked him in the miniseries. :)

    1. Jenni: Which just pleases me to no end! And also means I don't mind that you didn't like the book. :)

  3. Yes! If people ask me who my favorite N&S character is, I'm like ThorntonHigginsMargaret -- they're all so amazing.

    Favorite male character in books is Sherlock Holmes <3 <3 <3

    1. Hamlette: My response is exactly the same! All three characters are very amazing. :)

      I've not ever been the biggest fan of mysteries, but I keep hearing such good things about Sherlock that one of these days I'm going to try and read one of his books. I hope!

    2. Kara, that would be great! My favorite Holmes book is The Hound of the Baskervilles, but you might like the short stories better. "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle" is Christmasy, just FYI...

    3. Hamlette: Awesome! I'll be sure to check that one out. I'm thinking starting with the short stories might just be the wisest for I can get a feel for whether I'll enjoy the full length stories. Thanks for the idea! :)


Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the internet! :)
