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 – A Creature You’d Want to Adopt (An animal or creature character you’d want as a companion.)
Amanda- I’m going to choose Bryaxis from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas. This is one of my absolute favorite series and there are so many different creatures. Bryaxis was one of my favorite creatures that I’ve read about in quite a while. So terrifying that Cassian won’t even describe what it looks like to anyone else, so old that the only thing it desires is someone to talk to and a window to see the stars. I would love to talk to Bryaxis and learn the things that it has seen through its life and get it to share some of its knowledge with me. I don’t know that I would want Bryaxis as a traveling companion or anything similar but I would love to be the person to spend time in the library fulfilling the agreement made with it for someone to talk to. I’m so intrigued to see where this part of the ACOTAR story goes once the next book/series comes out.
Antonia- For me, this will always and forever be Shalkan from The Obsidian Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory. He’s a unicorn; you’re probably thinking pure, fluffy being of joy and goodness, right? Well you got the fluffy part right. Shalkan is sarcastic AF, stubborn, badass, and all-around not what you’d expect from a unicorn. I love him so much.
Thanks for reading bookworms! What creature would you choose for this week’s topic? Feel free to let us know in the comments!

Hey Amanda! I am only reading ACOMAF right now so I have no idea what you are talking about! 😉 BUT how super cool are Maas’ creatures?! In ACOMAF Feyre lists the ones she’s run into so far and I thought WOW! So many already… the bone guy was super creepy! So I’m looking forward to eventually getting to this bryaxis and seeing what he’s all about…
Hey Antonia! UNICORNS! You had me right there but then to find out Shalken is such a unexpected one… stubborn and sarcastic?! YES! I admit I haven’t read that book but it intrigues me. Lackey is such a creative lady I’ve enjoyed many of her books but missed this series! Thanks for sharing, I’ll need to check it out now. ❤️
Shalkan sounds like such a fun twist on a unicorn – definitely tempting for a pet! I haven’t read ACoTaR yet, but Bryaxis sounds like a very interesting companion as well! Great choices!
