Why I Love Wednesdays – Favorite Sidekick

Favorite Sidekick:

Honestly this is a hard topic for me. While many books I read have supporting characters, there aren’t many I can pinpoint as a sidekick. So with that said, I’ll have to go with some really obvious picks. And to be honest, my brain is just too tired to delve into all the books I’ve read and come up with some dingers.   So I’m going to go with Ron and Hermoine from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.   If ever there were some true blue friends these two are it. Willing to follow and help Harry in and out the most harrowing of situations. Even in their fear, even in their doubts, they held tight to the bonds of friendship and everything that’s right. Harry would have long been dead if not for these two keeping him grounded and surrounded with love.

Also, I have to give it up to Seth Clearwater from the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.  Seth managed to help Edward out, and became Jacob’s right hand man.  He’s lovable, and cute, and quite responsible and efficient for a kid.  I loved his boldness in Breaking Dawn.  Loved that he had the fortitude to break away from the main pack and join with Jacob.  Loved that he saw the leadership capabilities and believed in Jacob even when Jacob didn’t see it in himself.  Seth is everything I’d want a little brother to be.  And he’s a little cutie too.

    One of my favorite sidekicks would be Peeta from the Hunger Games, and Othella from Mama Ruby. Peeta was so adorable and likeable and he had this protective energy for Katniss. And Othella, she was the glue for Ruby, she always had her back.

    @ Lena, I have The Hunger Games, and I will be reading it sometime in July. I hear great things about Peeta all the time so I can’t wait to dive in and discover him!

  3. I forgot about Seth!! You are so right. Oh and I’m not as in love with Peeta as everyone else (I’m not sure why). Maybe it is because I’ve only read the first Hunger Games book.

    @ Alexis, You and Lena both have me anxious to see what THG is all about. I wonder if you’ll change your mind about Peeta after reading the other two books.

  5. I am SO with you on Hermoine.
