Tell Me Something Tuesday

Tell Me Something Tuesday is hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings. Check out her blog for upcoming topics! I saw a post by Jen (Twimom) and thought it was fun and decided to join in. So I’ll be jumping in sporadically 🙂

Name some book sidekicks you’d love to have by your side?

In some of my favorite books (series really), it’s the sidekicks that I end up loving even more than the main characters. Here’s some favorites that immediately came to mind:

  1. Jenks from The Hollows by Kim Harrison. That little pixie has a heart of gold and is one of my favorite characters in the series.
  2. Cookie from the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones. Best friend award, seriously. I think I fell in love with her before Reyes, if that’s possible.
  3. Peabody, Mavis, Mira, Roarke, well the whole gang in the In Death series by JD Robb.

I can’t believe I can’t think of more! There’s probably a bunch I’m missing, but these are the one that I thought of without doing a bunch of searching, so that means they’re the most memorable, right? Also, I know it said books, but my favorite sidekick of all time is Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I can’t skip her. Followed, with a very close second and third by Spike and Mr. Giles. I love that show and more for the sidekicks than Buffy herself.

What are your favorite sidekicks?

  1. Those are fun ones and great series. I was recently thinking the other day how much fun Levet is as a side character in Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity series.
