My Top 10 “Mentors” of 2011

Posted December 29, 2011 in Meme / 9 Comments

The Top 10 of 2011 is a week long event hosted by Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic, Lisa from A Life Bound by BooksJaime & Patricia from Two Chicks on Books and Rachel from Fiktshun.  See my original post for all the deets on how you, too, can play along.  Today’s Top 10 are the Top 10 Characters in 2011.  I’m choosing to go with my top 10 Mentors of 2011; those characters that are charged with teaching our leading characters how to get through their crazy lives.  In these cases, I thought about how much I enjoyed the character, not whether they were actually good at being mentors.

#10 Patrick McCallister (to Bryn Davis) in  

#9 John Pritkin (to Cassie Palmer) in
Hunt the Moon (Cassandra Palmer #5) by Karen Chance

#2 Haymitch Abernathy (to Katniss Everdeen) in Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins

I didn’t do little “blurbs” on each one because I try to remain spoiler-free.  Sorry!!

Join us again tomorrow for the Top 10 Books I’m looking forward to in 2012.  That’s going to be impossible for me to nail down to just 10!!!!  We’ll also be doing a bit of recapping, as in how much we’ve read books-wise, page-wise, etc, etc.  You can check out how pathetic I am!!!  It’s worth a giggle!!

For more lists, head on over to our host’s sites above (click their names to be taken to their sites) and you’ll find a bunch of fun people participating.


About Kristin

Kristin has to ensure she gets her minimal requirement of "happily ever after" books in between those books that contain cliffhangers and never-ending story arcs. It's for her family's sake. When not reading, she's homeshooling her 10-year old son, watching cartoons on TV, or taking a nap.

  1. I LOVE THIS LIST!!!!!!

    And have I mentioned that I love your picture in the header?

    Anyway, Al.. I think with him it’s really hard. I am sort of in love with him, but he is Al.

    Bones, Bran and Pritkin.. I’m not sure about Bran, but with Bones and Pritkin I agree!

    Hope I’ll see you again tomorrow (or today, if you chose to leave a comment in return *hint hint* ;))


  2. Mentors! Great idea! Especially Bran! I love Bran! I especially like in River Mark when he tell Adam to take care of Mercy and lets all his power out before he gives her away to him. Bones to Cat was a great mentoring in the first book. I loved the training he gave her! Especially when he said dirty stuff to her and every time she blushes she has to run an extra mile. Haymitch wasn’t always a very good mentor but an interesting character.

  3. haha Haymitch was really a great mentor 😀 😀 (in the end, that’s it :D) haha it’s too funny – but seriously I loved that guy’s humor! 😀

  4. I love your choices! I added Sterling and Working Stiff to my TBR list because the other ones make me trust your judgement 🙂 I especially love Bran and Al!

  5. I loved Richard! (Probably a little extra because I live in Boulder, and recognized so much of the setting:P). And Haymitch is awesome, I can’t wait to see how Woody Harrelson handles him in the movie!:)
