The Top Ten
1 Margo Roth Spiegelman (Paper Towns)

Maybe it's because Paper Towns is my favorite book, or that Margo is my favorite character, but there's something especially captivating about her. Is it her charisma? Her cleverness?

One of the best female supporting characters. I love you, Margo Roth Spiegelman. From Manila with love.

2 Alaska Young (Looking for Alaska)

She's funny and mysterious and has some very deep thoughts. I love how she has tons of books to read and that she always has awesome pranks. She's the perfect combination of deep and funny.

She's mysterious, like Margo. She's funny without ever being mean. She's the light in the dark. She's Alaska. What else can I say?

I love Alaska. I just read Looking for Alaska (best book ever, by the way) and I thought this character was wonderful.

3 Isaac (The Fault In Our Stars)

Funny, nerdy. An excellent secondary character.

I wanted Isaac and Hazel to end up together.

4 Augustus Waters (The Fault In Our Stars)

He's hilarious. He can lift any sad mood. He and Alaska would be good together.

He is sassy, fun, sensitive, strong, and hot.

5 Quentin {Q} Jacobsen (Paper Towns)

I love him almost as much as I love Margo. And for this reason: he's nothing like Margo, and they complete each other.

6 Will Grayson (Will Grayson, Will Grayson)

You can't help but feel mixed feelings for this poor soul. You're not sure if he's funny, saddening, angering, or all at the same time.

I can relate to uppercase Will (aka straight Will, aka Schrödinger Will) more than I can relate to most real people.

7 Lacey Pemberton (Paper Towns)

She's always there for the main characters, and again, that's good in a secondary character.

8 Ben (Paper Towns)
9 Hazel Grace Lancaster (The Fault In Our Stars)

I liked her at the beginning of the book, but then she just became a jerk, especially to Peter, who was just trying to apologize.

Although I like Isaac better, I think Hazel is a good enough protagonist. Watch this one go all the way to the top.

10 The Colonel (Looking For Alaska)

I can't believe he's not on the list. I mean, have you read the part when he was cheering against the opposite team? The boy is awesome!

The Contenders
11 Radar (Paper Towns)

I've only seen The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns as movies. I haven't read any of the books by the author, but Isaac, Radar, and Margo are my favorites.

12 Takumi (Looking For Alaska)
13 Colin Singleton (An Abundance of Katherines)

Not much can be said about Colin except that he kind of rules.

14 Lara (Looking for Alaska)
15 Hassan Harbish (An Abundance of Katherines)
16 Aza Holmes (Turtles All the Way Down)
