TOP TEN TUESDAY #9 | Favorite Adult Characters in YA

Hi, everyone! It’s Tuesday, so get ready for another TTT. For those of you that don’t know, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme ran by That Artsy Girl. This week’s prompt is a character freebie: anything related to characters. For this, I decided to do some of my favorite adult characters in Young Adult fiction!

5. Sally Jackson from Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Sally just tries so hard to make sure Percy’s taken care of and everything, and I love her. I really must re-read the series to remember everything she’s done because I’m 90% sure she’s done a lot.

4. Larten Crepsley from Cirque du Freak

He is such a good character! Kind of an ass in the beginning, but Larten grew on me as the series continued. The vampire is basically just an old grouch who wants to take care of his spider and “grudgingly” cares about Darren, too, I guess, if he must.

3. Uncle Will from The Diviners

Reading through the first Diviners book, I loved Uncle Will. His obsession with the occult is interesting, and I like his interactions with other characters. I’m interested to see what he’ll be like in the rest of the series.

2. Christopher Wolfe from The Great Library

Not gonna lie, I hated Wolfe in the beginning because, uh, he was a jackwagon. But by the end of Ink and Bone, I really liked him as a character. I’ve only read the first book, so here’s to hoping he isn’t killed off in the upcoming books or something.

1. Colm Fahey from the Six of Crows duology

This man. THIS MAN. Colm’s the dad who would make sure everyone was hydrated and well-fed before they went out into the Barrel to go and steal shit from people. He cares so much about his son and, in extension, the rest of the Dregs. He just wants Jesper to be happy, and he made Crooked Kingdom so good. I hope he’s thriving.

And there are just a few of my favorite adult characters in young adult books! Are any of your favs on this list? Or are there other adult characters you absolutely love? Let me know!

Until next time~

You don’t have to worry about any content from here being behind a paywall, either. Absolutely everything on this blog is staying here, including reviews, book tags, weekly memes, discussions. Everything. The content on Patreon could be seen as extra perks and a way of saying thanks for supporting me!

Depending on the tier you choose, being a patron allows you to have:

  • early access to reviews (24 hours)
  • the ability to collectively choose 2 books for the following month’s TBR
  • exclusive posts on bookish tips and tricks
  • character analyses
  • and more!

Regardless if you become a patron or not, I really appreciate the support you have all given me throughout my blogging journey. ❤️

    1. I mean, I’d always recommend it, lol. The beginning can be a bit confusing if you haven’t read the GrishaVerse trilogy first for the world-building (I didn’t, and it took me a bit to get used to certain things), but there is a wonderful cast of characters.


  1. OMG I have now seen Kaz Matthias and Colm Fahey in these freestyle TTT! And I love that you picked him! Such an underrated and fantastic additon… Jesper Llewellyn Fahey!!!

  2. I love Uncle Will so much…. also finally someone else has read the Diviners!!! I love that series so much it’s the perfect mix of historical fiction and supernatural fantasy. Your blog is so beautiful, and it has cozy vibes lol. I just started my own blog (yesterday…) and I’m hoping to include plenty of bookish content, so seeing blogs like yours is really inspiring!
