Topic: Male Lead Character

Are you kidding me!?  This topic is too good and it’s too hard to just pick one.  You all already know of my undying love for Jake.  So in staying with books I read THIS year, I’ll have to mention these guys, because they are all so VERY awesome!

1.  Four from Divergent by Veronica Roth:

  • Dauntless faction leader
  • Divergent
  • Has a quiet strength and subtle kindness

“Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it, that’s the point”  pg. 239

2. Prince Po from Graceling by Kristin Cashore:

  • Extraordinary Graceling
  • Strong and Assured
  • Admirable and Honorable

“I know you don’t want this, Katsa. But I can’t help myself. The moment you came barreling into my life I was lost. I’m afraid to tell you what I wish for, for fear you’ll… oh, I don’t know, throw me into the fire. Or more likely, refuse me. Or worst of all, despise me,” he said, his voice breaking and his eyes dropping from her face. His face dropping into his hands. “I love you,” he said. “You’re more dear to my heart than I ever knew anyone could be. And I’ve made you cry; and there I’ll stop.”

3. Robb Stark from Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin:

  • The Young Wolf
  • Made the King of the North by his bannermen
  • Skilled and cunning in battle

“I asked him, How can a man be brave if he’s afraid? That is the only time a man can be brave, he told me.”

4. Jon Snow from Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin:

  • The Bastard son of Lord Eddard Stark
  • Steward on the Night’s Watch
  • Skilled with a blade and brave beyond measure

“Different roads sometimes lead to the same castle.”
