  1. Gill

    One of my favourite characters was Marcellus the Octopus from Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt

  2. Yes the whole gang in The Thursday Murder Club, Anne! Sophia I love Mercy and Truman in the Mercy Kilpatrick series too! I’ll link up my second half of my favorites on this even though it’s not the characters I featured. 🙂

  3. I’m not familiar with your characters Anne I’ll have to take a look
    Robin oh yes to Auri from the Sunshine Vicram series
    And Sophia Rose who couldn’t love Angie Fox’s Verity and Frankie

    Happy New Year
