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 you’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 you and others can blog hop and share the character love.
This weeks topic is Favorite Stephen King Character (A character from Stephen King’s creative mind that you love! It can be based upon ANY of his adaptions… Let’s prepare for the Halloween season!)
I have only read one novel by Stephen King. Horror is a genre that I tend to stay away from. I don’t like to be scared. This goes for books and movies and everything else. So the character I have for this week’s topic is Carrie. She’s a little out there and definitely crazy. I read the book and then watched the movie and the book was SO much more detailed. I was so surprised by her story and how much I liked it. Carrie was a socially awkward girl that could move things with her mind and got picked on by her peers. But in the end, she sure showed them that she was a not a girl to be trifled with. Check out my review of Carrie here to see my thoughts about the whole book.
I also avoid the horror genre like the plague to the point where I’ve never read any of King’s books or watched the movie adaptations. Not that I have anything against King particularly; in the past I’ve thought some of his books sounded really interesting but I’m way too much of a scaredy-cat.

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?
