“It was a sad moment in Magnus Bane’s life when he was banned from Peru by the High Council of Peruvian warlocks.”First line in The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
Hi guys and welcome to my post Top 5 Tuesday which is hosted by Shannah from the Bionic Book Worm. I couldn’t not do this week’s topic because the funny characters are often my favorite ones.
I’ve found 5 characters that always crack me up. For each character, I’ve added a quote from them so you can experience the comedy for yourself.
Wayne from Mistborn: The Alloy Era
“I need you to stay behind as we go into those slums,” Wayne said, determined to impress solemnity into his voice. “It’s not that I don’t want your help. I do. It’s just going to be too dangerous for you. You need to stay where I know you’re safe. No arguments. I’m sorry.”Shadows of Self by Brandon Sanderson
“Wayne,” Wax said, walking past. “Stop talking to your hat and get over here.”
Magnus Bane from The Shadowhunter Chronicles
Malachi scowled. “I don’t remember the Clave inviting you into the Glass City, Magnus Bane.”City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
“They didn’t,” Magnus said. “Your wards are down.”
“Really?” the Consul’s voice dripped sarcasm. “I hadn’t noticed.”
Magnus looked concerned. “That’s terrible. Someone should have told you.” He glanced at Luke. “Tell him the wards are down.”
Eugenides from The Queen’s Thief
“They’re going to leave me. All I wanted to do was lie in the dry prickly grass with my feet in a ditch forever. I could be a convenient sort of milemarker, I thought. Get to the thief and you know you are halfway to Methana. Where ever Methana might be.”The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
Nikolai from The Grisha Verse
I took a breath. “Your highness—”Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
“Nikolai,” he corrected. “But I’ve also been known to answer to ‘sweetheart’ or ‘handsome.”
Locke Lamora from Gentleman Bastard
“I thought you specialised in dishonest finesse?”Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch
“I also do a brisk trade in putting knives to peoples’ throats and shouting at them,” said Locke
This was fun to do but I’m sure that I’ve forgotten about some characters. Who makes you laugh when reading about them?
