Happy Thursday book friends!
This week we’re looking at those gorgeous characters who make a book what it truly is – not the protagonist, but the cast of people who stand beside or behind them, fleshing out a book and making fictional worlds so fabulously full.
1. Mr J.L.B. Matekoni – The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series
Ok so I basically adore everything about this series. But Mr J.L.B. Matekoni has been an absolute gem of a human throughout the entire series. Helping at the orphanage, his patience with the apprentices, and his general demeanour make him such an endearing character.
2. Luna – Harry Potter Series
Luna is just a total sweetheart, honestly. She’s quirky and cool with it, and even though she’s off with the fairies a lot of the time, she’s always there when it counts – and the odd things she comes out with always hold some truth. Plus, that Lion hat is goals.
3. Raymond –Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
I love how dorky and utterly himself Raymond is. It’s also incredible how he recognises Eleanor needs a friend and is more than willing to put up with her ‘quirks’ to uphold that friendship, even when it’s difficult. He’s the kind of friend everyone needs.
Who are your favourite side-characters? Do you see any on this list? 🙂
