Why I Love Wednesdays...Types of Characters

Reflections of a Bookaholic

I am returning with my new feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concerns our Favorite Types of Characters

Why I Love...Sassy and/or Witty Characters

This topic has appeared in one of my first Why I Love Wednesdays post.  And I couldn't help but describe how much I LOVE LOVE imperfect characters.  This time around, I just have to tell you how much I love sassy and/or witty characters.  I felt like I have to include both because sassy just isn't a very masculine description so I had to include both.

Some people like their characters to be a bit angsty and others like them to be swoon-worthy.  Me.. I like sarcasm and wit.  I love Katniss, Peeta, and Haymitch from the Hunger Games.  Without the witty interplay (and Peeta), that series would be beyond depressing.  Well it was still tough but these characters created fun and smiles in the midst of...gore.  Anybody watch House (the TV show)?  Okay that's certainly not a book.  I LOVE him.  He's so MEAN, but witty!  I want to be mad at him but I'm so...impressed.  Okay back to books.  I Love Morrelli and Ranger from the Stephanie Plum series.  They aren't over the top but they always have a witty comeback to match Stephanie's sassiness.

Ahhh!!!  It's so hard to explain.  Yet I know it when I read it.  Witty characters balance books about difficult topics, the dialogue makes me laugh and smile, and the writing in these books tend to be better than most (in my opinion).  Some books try to be witty and others just ARE.  These characters are definitely my favorite.
