  7. The Mercy Thompson series is one of my favorites! Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

  8. OMG you've read the Mercy Thompson series??? They're some of my favorite books, and I literally never met anyone else who's read them! I love Mercy a bunch and also I have a thing for female mechanics, so she would be at the top of my list. :D She's such a great and independent character and I love Adam and his wolves too. I'm always happy to read a new book in the series, even though some are better than others. I don't know all of the others, but good luck with Cheryl as your girlfriend haha I feel like she'd be very high maintenance.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I've only read the first one, but I liked Mercy already. And I have lots of reading to do to learn more about her and Adam, so yay! And yes... Cheryl would be high maintenance! I might not survive?

      Delete
  9. Ahhh Cheryl!! I just love her character! I love how she just says and gets what she wants, even if it is mean! I'm really excited to see what's in store for her this next season after that season finale.. From what I remember, Harper isn't in the books, which is a shame! I really like her, and love her and Monty's relationship. I'm so ready for season 5! Nothing has topped season 2 for me, but I'm keeping my hopes up!

    1. I do too! She had so many good lines in S1. And she says ANYTHING.

      No Harper = no books for me lol. Ha ha actually I've thought of reading 'em, but I've heard they're VERY different.

      Delete
  10. Yay for Mercy!! As for the others, well Greg, I've got quite a few new heroines to meet! :D

    ReplyDelete
  11. What a fun topic and you give some great choices. A couple of these make me want to check out the programs like Black Sails and Riverdale. I say if we love to read and we're girls, Greg, everyone of us that visits your blog would qualify as your book girlfriends (lol) We're just not famous...yet *heh* Hugs...

    1. Thanks Ro! Both of those shows are fun, in totally different ways. :) And I'm just thankful I have so many blog friends to stop by... :):)

  12. oh wow you got me here. I think this is the very FIRST time I don't know ANY of the characters on your list!! LOL and I SHOULD because... badass female characters?? I made my life goal to know them ALL ;-) So thank you for sharing. I'll have to go read/watch them now :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. none of 'em? Hey I stumped ya!! To be fair though I did veer into TV/ movie territory though so those can be tougher. :) I think you'd like Riverdale.

      Delete
    2. yup, your Riverdale reviews have me considering watch it! :)

      Delete
  13. You have good taste, Greg. :-) I need to get back to Continuum and give Riverdale a try. I love Mercy Thompson.

    If I made a list Harry Dresden would be on it. And maybe Clay Danvers. Oh, and Hank Palace. Mr. Knightly perhaps. I'm not sure I could certainly up with 10 but maybe. :-)

    1. Thanks! :) Riverdale is fun.

      And a guy list- yeah Knightley would be a good choice, wouldn't he? Heck I'd even throw Darcy on there lol and maybe Col Brandon (loved it when Alan rickman portrayed him)?

      Delete
  14. I've heard such good things about Rainbow Rowell and yet have never managed to read one of her books?? I like how you included TV shows into the mix-- Continuum was a cool show! Eventually the timelines got so messy I stopped watching it, but I loved the first season.

    1. I had to tap some of those shows, it came to me as I was mulling my list. :) I liked Continuum but yeah- confusing!

      Delete
  15. I'm not familiar with most of these but am definitely seeing a trend! lol I never finished watching Continuum...may need to get back into it. And is the actress that plays Mya the same one that was in Merlin?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think I am too now that I look back at it! And yes, that is the same actress- I haven't seen Merlin.

      Delete
  16. Yes, Reagan! She was such a fun character! And Harper's one of my favorite The 100 characters.

    1. I loved Reagan, especially since she had Cath's interests at heart. And Harper... one of my faves.

      Delete
  17. I've always had a bit of a crush on Mercy myself. Fun list.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It's been a while since I saw The Maze Runner (didn't ever read the books), but I do remember liking Teresa. She's a pretty great character - and I have spotted Newt (from 'Maze Runner') on a few lists today too. :)

    1. I haven't read the books either, but I may? And I did like Teresa.

  19. I've been wanting to watch Black Sails. That gif makes me love Idelle already.

    ReplyDelete
  20. That is a great list. And I just adore Cheryl from Riverdale, mean girl attitude and all.

    ReplyDelete
  21. This is a great list Greg, I'm gutted on having missed out on this week's topic, as I've seen some epic lists around today! I love that Reagan and Cheryl made it to your list, they are both badass!

    1. There were some great lists today. Reagan was awesome, and Cheryl- I mean, I couldn't resist. :)

  23. Great list - I don't know all of these characters - but a big high five for Mercy.

  24. I don't want a lot of television, so I can't relate to the TV-focused characters, but I do have a soft spot in my heart for Reagan! Fangirl is one of my FAVORITE novels. Rainbow Rowell can really write characters well!

    The Dark Throne series is on my TBR. Do you like the books? Have you read the newest book yet?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Fangirl is a favorite of mine also. Reagan was so different yet had Cath's back, and I loved it.

      The Dark Throne books are awesome, I liked the first one and the second one was even better. Plus there's a ton of theories floating around as some bloggers have done spoilery posts to discuss. If you're interested you should definitely give it a try. :)

  25. Man, I'm not familiar with hardly any of these! I've clearly got some things to look into.

    Have a great week. - Katie

  26. I haven't read many of these but I am a huge fan of Mercy Thompson. Fun list!

    1. I liked Mercy Thompson, now I need to read more of those books.

  27. Guess what? After three weeks of postponing, I'm finally reading Three Dark Crowns! And oh gosh it's fantastic!
    I think that I actually like all three of the queens, even sly, cunning, vicious Katharine. However, the Gravesdrake mannor is my favorite setting.
    I'm 120 pages in and really into it, so I now I actually know about Mirabella's character! I have a lot to read still, and it feels like I'm just being introduced, but at least I know who you are talking about.
    I love all of these badass characters. Your list is amazing!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes! Glad you're liking it. And I had the same thing- I went into the first book thinking I'd have a favorite, and I ended up liking all of them!

      Thanks!

  28. Oooh! I love Mercy Thompson! Great list!

  29. I like how you mixed in some TV characters! I love Mercy Thompson and need to catch up on the series. I also have to start watching The 100 and Riverdale, they both sound good.

    ReplyDelete
  30. So, when I read the title, I was like "hmm what the hell kind of post will this even be without Harper and Garza?" And I am so happy to see that you have cheated to allow their existence in this post, love it :D Harper is not in the books- let's be real, no one is. But who cares, the show is so much better anyway. Kind of surprised by Mirabella! I mean, clearly no one wants to be Katharine's mate at this juncture, but Arsinoeee.

    OHH and who is Emily!? Will I get to her soon!? Exciting. I contemplated doing this TTT but honestly, does anyone need a "list" that says like, Bellamy Blake, Peeta Mellark, and Marcus Kane's Beard? That's an emphatic no, really.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There would be NO post w/o Harps or Garza lol. You know me well! And yeah I cheated- I couldn't resist. :)

      No Harper in the books? That seals it- I'm not reading. Actually I might, because 100. And I surprised you with Mirabella! I kinda wanted to include ONE of them, and she seems the nicest, but then again Arsinoe IS awesome...?!?

      Emily is Emily Hampshire- Jennifer on Monkeys- I should have put Jennifer down! Your list would have been awesome. I would even go for Kane's beard lol. And Bellamy, frankly, if I was, u know, female. :)

    1. I'm not sure! I remember in the second book thinking she was interesting, and as a bastard daughter of the dead king I thought she might play a role, but she hasn't yet. I liked her character though!
