Favorite Book Characters

Hi Friends--

Today's 30 Days of Lists prompt was "Favorite Fictional Characters."  I had so much fun coming up with my list.  I went through my book journal, book-by-book.  I couldn't believe how many characters I could remember from books I read 4, 5, even 6 years ago!  Just for fun, I thought I'd share the list here.  If you're looking for a book with an unforgetable character or two, check out one of these:

Bhima: The Space Between Us, Thrify Umringar
Olly: Geek Love, Katherine Dunn
Margaret, Vida Winters:  The Thirteenth Tale, Diana Setterfield
Rachel: Moloka'i, Alan Brennert
Mariam: A Thousand Splendid Suns, Khaled Hasseini
Addy Shadd: Rush Home Road, Lori Lansens
Owen Meany: A Prayer for Owen Meany, John Irving
Scout: To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee
Henry: Saturday, Ian McEwan
Oskar: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Janathan Safran Foer
