Tell Me Something Tuesday #4

This is a weekly meme hosted by Cambria @ Each week there is a different question to be answered.

This week's tell me something:

Who are your favorite sidekicks in a book? (you know the main character’s BFF)

My answer:

I missed last week's Tell Me Something Tuesday, and now I am very glad to see that I didn't miss this question. This is something I have to think through.

*Leaves to search all her book*
*After 20 minutes*

Ok, now I have my top 3 favorite sidekicks. Let the count-down begin...

No. 3
Nelly from Blood Warrior by H.D. Gordon

Nelly is Alexa's sister and she is a vampire but a weird compination of two races of vampires that is very rare. But that's not why I like her. She is the sweetest person in the book! Maybe in a lot of books too. She always knows when something is wrong with her sister and is always there for her, even when Alexa isn't treating her nice. She is great! I just hope she had a bigger role in the book, although I heard that she even has her own PoV in the next one, can't wait.

No. 2
Bethany & Skylar from Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Bethany and Skylar are both Kali's friends. Bethany is a stack up cheerleader and Skylar is the school's weirdo. So different from each other but both get very close to Kali and become very strong and lovable characters by the end of the book. Both girls were kick-butt and brave in their own way (Kali was the only one doing the actual kick-butt) and never let Kali down.

No. 1
Phin from Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Finally my favorite sidekick of all time is Phin, Amy's sister. Both girls were pretty special but Phin was the one that caught my heart by the first time she appeared. She is this mad scientist that could cure cancer and  go after world domination at the same time. You never know what to expect, never know what would happen when she's around. She looses track of time, direction but still always supports her sister, in her own weird and special way. Got to love her. 


  1. Oh yeah, I forgot about Skyler. She was my favorite character of the book. I need to read Texas Gothic.

  2. oooh, I haven't read any of these books but they look fabulous! I need to get to reading!
    Great picks and thanks so much for being part of TMST this week!! ;-)

  3. Oh yes Skylar, I loved her, so hated the ending. I have been dying to read Texas Gothic forever! Now, I must. I have not read Blood Warrior yet either. It was hard coming up with some good ones. Liked the line...leaves for 20 minutes...

  4. I loved Phin from Texas Gothic! I am so glad to see someone else has read this book and loved it too. I think it is completely underrated.

    Great choices Veronica!

  5. I've not read any of these. They sound like good reads. Every Other day is already on my list though!!!
