Every fiction book (well all the ones I’ve read anyway) has a protagonsit.
This is the person that the story follows, the person whose life you are living for the next 500 or so pages, the person you root for and want to see achieve their dreams.
So in this list I will be compiling my top 5 favourite YA protagonists from any book or series not depending on genre.
And maybe hearing about these characters will make you want to check out the books!
So here goes…
5. Rosie from Love, Rosie
She is confident, funny, relatable and I think the fact that we follow her throughout the majority of her life makes me love her even more. It’s very rare to find a character that is so mundane (insert TMI jokes here…) yet so interesting to read about! By the end of the book I felt like I was her.
4. Will Grayson from Will Grayson, Will Grayson
Which Will Grayson am I talking about? You’ll never know…all I’m going to say is that his character development is paramount and I am completely in love with his story. I’ll let you decide which is the best…
3. Charlie from The Perks of being a Wallflower
Rarely does a character make me cry so much, he is an adorable little muffin and I will have nothing negative said about him.
2. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games
I don’t think I really have to say much about why I love this character, if you don’t know then I can’t really help you, just read the books.
(Hint: strong, independent and completely badass)
1. Blue Sargent from The Raven Boys
One thing you should know about me is that I am completely in love with this series in general so it is unsurprising that she tops my list.
If you want to meet a quirky, headstrong and sarcastic character who doesn’t take any nonsense from anyone then I would advise picking up these books.
Just do it.
You won’t regret it.
And that’s it folks, my top 5 favourite YA protagonists.
Quite a mixture aye?
I would highly suggest reading these books if you haven’t, none of them (in my opinion) disappoint.
If you have any more protagonists to add onto my list leave a comment and we can all share our favourite books and character together.
I really do think the types of characters we love reflects who we are as a person so it would be very interesting to see who you all liked!
Thanks for reading!
