Secondary Characters Blog Hop

Scroll down for today’s The Big Reveal posting

Thank you to Rachel Schieffelbein for bringing us this fun blog hop. And congratulations on your soon-to-be-released story, Secondary Characters. And thank you also to all these lovely co-hosts: Theresa Paolo, Kelley Lynn, Jessica Saylor, Jenny MorrisCassie Mae

Sometimes secondary characters steal the show, (or the book) and become our favorites. Whether it’s the funny best friend or that goofy kid next door,
we want to know what secondary characters
you just couldn’t get enough of and why.
I’ve got a few characters I’d like to mention.
First is my own character. Which unfortunately is in an unpublished novel, so it’s not available to read.
Murphy from THE PROPER WAY TO SAY GOODBYE. He is the best friend of my main character Chloe. He is a totally sweet guyβ€”not the hottest one, not the wittiest, but loyal and caring. But I’m biased of course. And I hope you all will be able to meet him someday an love him just as much as I do.
Another character I really liked was Laura from CLAWS by Will Weaver. She’s a spunky girl, tough on the outside, but hurting on the inside. The main character was Jed, and the book was good, but I also think the story would’ve been fun to hear from her pov.
This is an old one, and it’s from a movie, but I’m going to go with Chunk from THE GOONIES. He’s the chubby-funny kid, pictured on the right, kneeling down.
I was a kid when this movie came out and loved it. I watched it recently with my kids, and I still laughed. Chunk is a riot, and he’s got several great scenes. He’s the kind of kid who isn’t necessarily trying to be funny, but is. A little dopey, but he makes you laugh and is a good, loyal friend.

So I know you probably haven’t read THE PROPER WAY, but have you seen THE GOONIES or read CLAWS?
Here is the linky list to go check out the others.

    Loved Chunk in the Goonies! Also, some other secondary character favorites I have are: Graff and Valentine in Ender’s Game, Sam in LOTR, Luna Lovegood and Neville in Harry Potter, and . . .well, the list goes on.
    Great post!

  4. I really like your new blog look. πŸ™‚ Chunk was AWESOME! You should come visit me and we can go to Astoria and visit where they filmed the movie.

  5. I grew up on The Goonies and love it. Whenever I think of Chunk I think of the Truffle Shuffle, or the scene when he starts confessing to everything he ever did wrong. I also loved mouth. The scene where he’s “translating” to the maid is hilarious.

  6. CHUNK! Aw, man! How could I not think of Goonies! So many great characters in that show. πŸ™‚ And for the love – go rent Serendipity RIGHT-NOW! πŸ™‚
