Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday, a fun weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week Top Ten Tuesday is all about unpopular opinion, you can choose to list characters you like that everyone hates or vice versa. I chose to do a lighter version of the former and made a list of ten characters that need a hug. These are the characters that I think not getting enough love and/or had a really tough life.
Agatha Wellbelove (Carry On)
I know it’s hard to love Agatha, but she’s about as real as it can be. Girl got her priorities straight.
Nico DiAngelo (Percy Jackson & Heroes of Olympus)
He was left alone to fend for himself in hell when he was 11, and no one likes to sit with Nico because he’s gloomy and make everyone uncomfortable. Seriously, I wanted to adopt him as my stepbrother.
Sansa Stark (A Song of Ice and Fire)
For goodness sake, GRRM, leave Sansa alone.
“There are no heroes … In life, the monsters win.”
Renarin Kholin (The Stormlight Archive)
He just wanted to help and be useful, it’s not his fault his older brother is so perfect. Despite everything, Renarin still find it within himself to be optimistic.
Dorian Havilliard (Throne of Glass)
Post-the-first-book, he just can’t catch a break.
Wylan Van Eck (Six of Crows)
I don’t think anybody hates Wylan, but then again he’s like the kid in class who was always forgotten. Perhaps because he didn’t get a POV in SOC?
Holland (A Darker Shade of Magic)
Kell didn’t know how lucky he was to be the Red London antari.
Raphael Santiago (The Mortal Instruments, The Bane Chronicles)
After reading his origin story in The Bane Chronicles, I want to send dozens of virtual hugs to Raphael. Not sure if he’d appreciate it though.
Jessamine Lovelace (The Infernal Devices)
She was selfish, she was arrogant, and she made everyone hates her. But then again, if you were forced to live a life you didn’t want to, would you not grown to despise everything?
Remus Lupin (Harry Potter)
When most pick Sirius or James as their favorite Marauder, I go with Remus.

This is a good spin on the topic! I’ll totally hug Dorian and Lupin — they’ve been through some really difficult stuff. 😛
Thank you Reg! 🙂
Ahh yes they did, for reasons I couldn’t mention in the post because spoilers. Hahaha.
Fantastic list! 100% agreed. And so many seem to have sibling issues? Sansa, Nico, Renarin… poor kids :/
Thanks! Oh you’re so right. I didn’t realize until you mentioned it. *hugs all of them*
I looooove Nico!!! And I agree about Remus, I’d pick him over all the Marauders in a second 😍
*high five* Thank you for the support. 😊
Nico, Dorian and Remus….definitely three guys in need of a hug.
