I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger love for characters! Each week she’ll supply a topic and we’ll supply the character. Post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on Thursday so we can all blog hop and share the character love.
This weeks topic is Supernatural Hottie (Literally a character who is drop dead gorgeous and from a supernatural race or less literally a sexually diverse character who is a hottie).
Amanda- This is going to be obvious to those that read any of my bookish posts. I’m actually obsessed with the Darkling from Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I’m a sucker for a good villain and the Darkling is a great villain. I loved getting to learn more about him in the second and third books of the trilogy. He was a well-rounded character. Dark and mysterious at first but then we started to understand his motivations and the things that are driving him to be so horrible and evil and fantastic. Learning his backstory also makes you feel a little bad for him and want to love him and fix him and help him be good. I don’t know what it is but I really just love a good villain and the Darkling is a wonderful one.
Antonia- There’s just so many to choose from. Roth, the demon prince from The Dark Elements series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, has always been one of my favorites. I adored Adrian from The Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead since he was first introduced in the Vampire Academy series. Acheron from The Dark-Hunters series by Sherrilyn Kenyon was a supporting character throughout the series that I always swooned over and when he finally got his own book and I read about his absolutely heartbreaking backstory, it only made me love him more. Seriously guys, do you actually expect me to choose just one?
Thanks for reading! What characters would you choose for this weeks topic? Let us know in the comments or leave us a link to your post.

Both Adrien and The Darkling and super popular characters… it sounds like for good reason! I haven’t read either series but the fandom surrounding them is at EPIC levels… I still want to read Shadow and Bone every time I hear the Darkling mentioned! And another blogger raved about Adrien so much I feel like I know him already. ❤
Adrian was always my favorite character. And I love that one of your picks is a villain! I haven’t read Leigh Bardugo’s book yet but to put a villain on your supernatural hottie list is awesome 🙂 Great choices!
I dont know what it is about the Darkling but he’s an excellent villain that has a great and heartbreaking backstory. So even though he’s definitely evil and horrible, i still really love him.
