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 about her especially... Her charisma? Her cleverness? - timelord44

2 Isaac (The Fault In Our Stars)

Funny, nerdy... An excellent secondary character. - timelord44

I wanted Isaac and Hazel to end up together=(

3 Alaska Young (Looking for Alaska)

She's funny and mysterious and have some very deep thoughts, I love how she have tons of books to read and that she always have 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? - timelord44

What young actress will receive the privilege and challenge of portraying her in the movie version?

I can relate to her, she has to be my top character that I love.

4 Will Grayson (Will Grayson, Will Grayson)

I can relate to uppercase Will (aka straight Will, aka Schrodinger Will) more than I can relate to most real people. - timelord44

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. - timelord44

6 Hazel Grace Lancaster (The Fault In Our Stars)

Although I like Isaac better, I think Hazel is a good enough protagonist. (Watch this one go all the way to the top :P) - timelord44

7 Augustus Waters (The Fault In Our Stars)

He's hilarious, he can bring up any sad mood. He and Alaska would be good together. - timelord44

8 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 or saddening or angering or all at the same time. - timelord44

9 Lacey Pemberton (Paper Towns)

She's always there for the main characters and, again, that's good in a secondary character. - timelord44

10 Colin Singleton (An Abundance of Katherines)

Not much can be said about Colin except that he kind of rules. - timelord44

The Contenders

11 Ben (Paper Towns)


12 The Colonel (Looking For Alaska)

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!

13 Hassan Harbish (An Abundance of Katherines)
14 Takumi (Looking For Alaska)
15 Lara (Looking for Alaska)
16 Radar (Paper Towns)
