I haven’t read a lot of books with male protagonists, if I’m being completely honest but occasionally there is a male lead that steals the story. Here’s a few examples of times when the male main characters were some of my favorites!
Top 5 Tuesday is a blogging meme hosted by Shanah @ The Bionic Bookworm and it has been so much fun to participate in the last few months. I’m so lucky I stumbled onto the post with the topics! Every month she posts new topics for everyone to use to recommend books based on a theme. It’s so much fun to participate and see what everyone else recommends as well!.
- Han Alister from The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima – I loved following Han’s character development throughout The Seven Realms Series. Watching him change from reformed street lord to where he is at the end of the series was fun because I found myself rooting for him every step of the way.
- Monty from The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee – Monty is quite flawed, privileged, and extremely immature but he’s hilarious so I’m a big fan. I thought Monty’s character development throughout the book was well done because we got to see why Monty is the way he is. He seems really flippant and annoying at first but once we got to see how genuine he was it was exciting.
- Kaladin from The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson – How could I make a list about my favorite male protagonists without including Kaladin. He’s one of the best written male characters I’ve seen in the fantasy genre. He goes through a lot of awful experiences but he remains a good person, plus his humor is one of my favorite parts of the book.
- Peter Pevensie from The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis – Peter Pevensie has always been one of my favorite characters because he was the leader of the Pevensie family. He was responsible and caring and clearly the Gryffindor of the group.
- Ron Weasley from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling – Growing up Ron was one of my favorite characters to follow because I knew that he would be a great friend. He was loyal, kind, and chivalrous and although he didn’t always get what the other two were trying to do he stepped in to help in any way he could.
