TGIF is a meme hosted weekly at GReads! that allows bloggers to answer a book-related question and to recap their reading week!
Supporting Characters: We tend to gush over those main characters the most, but what about those supporting roles? Who are some of your favorites?
One of my absolute favorite supporting characters is Matthew Cuthbert from L. M. Montgomery´s Anne of Green Gables. Anne herself is, of course, the star of the book with her wild imagination and love of talking, but the quiet Matthew is still her kindred spirit. He stands up for spoiling her just a little bit, and confronts a lot of his fears just to make sure she is happy. His first conversation with her when they are riding home from the station is also simply hilarious, and still makes me laugh after much rereading! The two are great as a family.
Jingle from Pat of Silver Bush is another one of my favorite Montgomery characters. He ends up as the love interest, so maybe he doesn’t quite classify as “supporting” or “minor,” but he is often overlooked in favor of the roguish Gilbert Blythe! Jingle is a nice guy with a cute dog who works hard to show his love Pat. And he is far better than Teddy from the Emily books, whom I think is a bit of jerk even if a few of the things he did were not entirely his fault.
