‘Don’t make me angry, you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry!’


This week at the Broke and the Bookish the topic for Top Ten Tuesday is :

Top Ten Books Which Feature Characters Who _____:

– can change – either weres, shapeshifters, skin walkers, etc’

  1. Mercedes Thompson from Patricia Briggs series.  Mercy is a great character, I’ve loved watching her develop throughout the course of the books.  Mercy is a ‘walker’ who can turn into a Coyote.
  2. Suzume from M L Brennan’s Generation V.  Suzume is one of my favourite characters at the moment.  She has a great sense of fun and her cheeky nature stems from the fact that she is actually a fox – that can become human – that’s pretty unique I’d say!
  3. Atticus from Kevin Hearne’s Druid Chronicles – Atticus is a druid who can turn into a number of different forms – I’m pretty sure one of which is an owl and also a dog.  Not sure if he has any others at this point.
  4. Tamlin – this is a recent read by author Sarah J Maas – A Court of Thorns and Roses – Tamlin is fae and has the ability to turn into a strange beast, a mix of bear, wolf and I don’t know what!
  5. Sam from Charlaine Harris’ True Blood series.  Sam can take any form but usually takes that of a dog.
  6. Sirius Black from J K Rowling’s Harry Potter – a huge black dog.  I do like the character Sirius
  7. Shallan Davar from Sanderson’s Word of Radiance.  Shallan is a low born light eyes.  It turns out she has many strange abilities, one of which is to capture somebody’s likeness in the form of a drawing and then to be able to change herself to take on their appearance.
  8. Cassell from the Curse Workers series by Holly Black.  Cassell is a transformation worker – he can transform just about anything into anything – including himself!
  9. Lord Maccon of Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate – I had to go there – he is a bit of a studley after all!  A werewolf.
  10. Jacinda from Sophie Jordan’s Firelight series – I had to include this one as Jacinda is a draki, a descendant of dragons who can shift into human form

Thought I’d spotlight the Hearne books – I do love the covers for this series:

    Everyone is coming up with great ideas this week! I do love shapeshifters and you’ve got some awesome examples. Especially Suzume! She’s my new fave character as well:-)

    Sadly from your list the only one I really know is Sirius Black, great choice, but I think Lupin is my favourite 🙂 All your other choices sound fascinating too though.

      I did think of Lupin but decided I had to restrict myself to one character only from HP – otherwise it could take over the whole list 😀 😀

    The weeks where participants come up with their own ideas are always so interesting. Love your topic, you get to feature some really good books! I’m looking forward to ACOTAR!

      I quite enjoy seeing everybody’s own ideas for this one. I hope you enjoy ACOTAR – I really got into it. I didn’t really like Feyre for quite a good portion of the book but I so enjoyed spending some time in the fey world again – I think I need more fey reads in my life!

    I like your chosen category – there’s something about a shifter character that automatically makes them awesome. Lord Maccon…don’t mind if I do. 😉 Mercy and Sirius are great picks too, and you’ve reminded me that I need to get cracking on my copy of Generation V.

    • lynnsbooks

      Oh yes, you’re going to love Generation V. And, speaking of ‘don’t mind if I do’ when on earth is that next Ilona Andrews book out – enquiring minds want to know!
