Some Of My Favourite People Don’t Technically Exist

Day 14 – Favorite character in a book (of any sex or gender)

Miles Vorkosigan
Miles is one of the most complex fictional characters I’ve ever read. He is pure charisma and ego, overcoming some of the most extraordinary physical limitations to become a truly legendary figure. His ability to talk his way out of (or into) any situation is nothing short of breathtaking, and watching his career and life unfold is a truly fascinating journey. I’m very excited to see what is next in store for him when the new book comes out soon!

Nanny Ogg
I know, I know. Granny Weatherwax is one of Terry Pratchett’s most amazing, iconic and timeless character creations. But I still love Nanny Ogg best. There is a brilliant confidence about her, a madcap humour, and a complicated history that unfolds every time she opens her mouth. She is outspoken, bossy, uninhibited and for such an old lady, kinda sexy. I love her to bits. Or maybe I just want to have a dozen faceless daughters-in-law who do my housework for me…

runners up: Alanna of Trebond, DJ Schwenk, Falco, Alyx, Countess Ashby de la Zouche, Spenser, Calypso Grant, Sophie & Howl, Cordelia Naismith, Nancy Blackett, Harriet Vane, Peter Wimsey, Granny Weatherwax, Mia Thermopolis, Nick Ryves, Scarlett & Spencer Martin, Trixie Belden, Young Jolyon Forsyte, Elizabeth Bennet and Freddy Honeychurch.
