This month, Shanah at Top 5 Tuesday is taking a much-deserved break! That means that there aren’t any prompts this month, which is okay because I’ve missed a few weeks. I decided to go through the Top 5 Tuesday archives and pick out some topics that I wish I would have done, to share with you during June. This week, I’m talking about my Top 5 Main Males.
Joshua Templeman from The Hating Game by Sally Thorne: This pick shouldn’t surprise anyone, especially if you read last week’s leading ladies post. Joshua Templeman is my favourite character that I’ve met in a romance novel (so far), and I adore him. I love his habits, especially his two-week shirt rotation, and I also love that mind games that he and Lucy play with each other at work.
Levi Stewart from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: This pick also shouldn’t surprise anyone because it’s well known that I adore this barista from Fangirl. I like how enthusiastic and caring Levi is, and I like that he put in the effort to learn about Cath’s favourite things. I also really like that he’s a barista and that he created a delicious-sounding pumpkin beverage.
Jamie Watson from A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro: The main reason why I love the Charlotte Holmes books is that I love Jamie Watson. I like his attachment to stories about his great-great-grandfather and Sherlock Holmes. I also liked how he looked out for Charlotte, even when she was actively trying to push him away. Finally, I like how willing he is to go on crime-solving adventures, even though it’s clear that he’s in way over his head.
Inspector Gamache from Still Life by Louise Penny: There are a lot of great fictional detectives, but I think Inspector Gamache might be my favourite. I like that he’s mild-mannered and that he adds a layer of charm to the series. I like that he gets to know the people in the village of Three Pines and tries to become part of the community to help his solve crimes. I also like that he’s willing to give people chances, even if they don’t necessarily deserve it.
Arthur Dent from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams: There are so many reasons why I love Arthur Dent from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I love that he spends most of the series, being thrown into intergalactic crises while wearing his housecoat. I also love that he just really wants a decent cup of tea and that he gets very frustrated that he can’t find one.
