Top 5 Wednesday| The Jokes on You

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog group that come together to discuss that weeks topic. The idea was first curated by the wonderful Lainey at GingerReadLainey and is now run by Samantha over on ThoughtsonTomes. 

If you wish to participate, either on your Blog or Booktube channel then, please, join the group on Goodreads for all the relevant topics.

This week we're celebrating our favourite pranksters, tricksters and all round funny characters. 

1. Fred and George Weasley
Book: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Unsurprisingly these two Weasleys have probably turned up on every T5W list this week. But I can understand why. They offer comedic relief throughout all seven, in particular the last four, when things start getting dark. One scene that I always think back to is in book 5- OotP- when they set off the fireworks during an Umbridge exam.

2. Magnus Bane
Book: Clockwork Angel/City of Bones

Magnus Bane brings such joy to my Cassandra Clare reading experience. He's snarky, with witty one liners that just feed my sarcastic soul. We learn a lot about Magnus' past, which just give a greater depth of appreciation for his sense of humour.

3. Tyrion Lannister
Book: A Game of Thrones

Like Magnus, Tyrion is another character that has a terrible back story, but managaes to bring the greatest wit and humour into a situation. 

4. Thorne Cresswell 
Book: Cress

One of my favourite Disney characters is Flynn Ryder from Tangled. Thorne is Flynn, but in a book form. Both of which made me giggle.

5. Zuzana (& Mik)
Book: Daughter of Smoke and Bone

At times the Daughter of Smoke and Bone can get really dark. What I love is how Laini Taylor's writing is that she is able to write such wonderful funny characters without detracting away from the important aspects of plot.

6. Izzy O'Neil
Book: The Exact Opposite of Okay

Izzy is laugh-out-loud hilarious. Her funny narrative of events brings a lighter touch to quite serious topic of conversation that I think many teen girls are going to love and appreciate as much as I did.
