The Smashing and Dashing Character Awards

A tag solely based on characters? YES, PLEASE. I'm so glad I found this through other blogs. It was originally started by Cait from Paper Fury, and it's ALL about the most memorable and best characters from books you read in 2018. I talked about a few already on my survey, but this is a way to talk about even MORE of them! :D


*****


1. MOST RELATABLE CHARACTER
Taylor, because she's shy and nerdy and has social anxiety. But she's just trying her best and wants to be friends with everyone.


2. MOST PURE ANIMAL COMPANION
This book had a fox pet so obviously that was great for me, but also made me completely envious.


3. FIERCEST FIGHTER
omg Rin is ruthless, ambitious, and cunning, and she will cut down whoever stands in the way of her achieving her goals. 

Also, Marcella in Vengeful and Eelyn from Sky in the Deep.


4. AM SURPRISED THAT I LOVED YOU??
Thyon Nero. I HATED him in the first book, but omg Laini completely smashed that and made me love him. and like WOW. she's a genius.


5. BEST SASSMASTER
Boo, Aru's pigeon companion, who is definitely not pure.


6. BEST ANTIHERO
Maram is mean and cruel, but I like her! I think she's got so much more underneath her exterior, and honestly, I don't care if she doesn't? I just like antiheroes!


7. THE BEST FRIENDS OF ALL
The Wallflowers: Evie, Annabelle, Lillian, and Daisy. These girls are so caring and loving with one another, but also not afraid to call each other out on their shit. They just needed to find husbands for themselves, so they teamed up, and had some of the most fun shenanigans along the way.

Also the crews from Beneath the Citadel and The Gilded Wolves.


8. BEST VILLAIN TO HATE
Eli fucking Cardale.


9. AWARD FOR THE BEST VS WORST YA PARENTS
Best: Clara's dad
He and Clara's relationship made me CRY, it was so amazing and sweet and gah.
Ugh, also wanna add Jetta's parents in For a Muse of Fire.

Worst: Dean's dad
My baby deserved so much better than a sociopathic serial killer who forced him to watch and do awful things to survive. I WILL CUT YOU, DANIEL REDDING.


10. SHIP OF ALL SHIPS IN 2018
Sadia and Jackson from Wrong to Need You.

YA: Rielle and Audric 🌋
I also really loved a side relationship in Speak Easy, Speak Love.


11. MOST PRECIOUS MUST BE PROTECTED
Zofia, my precious cinnamon roll who wishes she understood people better but who is unbelievably kind and loyal and caring even if math comes easier to her than offering comfort or sage advice. BEST FRIEND.

Also Remy from Furyborn.


12. HONESTLY SURPRISED YOU’RE STILL ALIVE
High King Cardan. Honestly man, how have you not perished yet


13. AWARD FOR MAKING THE WORST DECISIONS
Malachiasz, you absolute idiot.


14. MOST IN NEED OF A NAP
Minya, darling, please. just. get some sleep.


15. WANT TO READ MORE ABOUT YOU
Ludivine, you DIVINE person. I need to know everything about you, omg.

Also have to add Malachiasz again because dude.


I tag anyone who wants to do this! What were some of the most memorable characters for YOU this year? Would any of these ones have made your list? Let's talk! :)
