~ Happy reading ~
My oh my. It's impossible to choose only one of my favourite male characters:
Peeta Mellark by Suzanne Collins
I adore Peeta. He is one of the best characters I've ever had the pleasure to read about. After you get to know him you see a kind, strong, selfless, adroit and madly in love man. And he is definitely the right one for Katniss. He is able to make her softer and take away her fierceness. He wouldn't prefer a revolution to Katniss as Gale does. He suffers a lot and nearly looses his mind, for Katniss, her goals and for himself at least. Sometimes it seems his own safety isn't on his mind and I truely love this in a male character.
I could proudly say this left cover is mine (but I got it as a present so it's a fortunate coincidence).
Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan
I've mentioned before that I love
Percy Jackson. He is funny, brave, observant, selfless and a great friend. The last character trait is also his main flaw. I think as a half-god there is worse you have to deal with.
Because the German and English Covers aren't so great and I don't want to see the Percy actor in my post I picked this gorgeous Italian Cover of The Last Olympian. Isn't it lovely? Blackjack looks great and the glowing Riptide too.
Harry Potter by Joanne K. Rowling
I must also pick Harry Potter. Yes, during seven years he was sometimes straining but he was also such a brave and selfless character. I like heros thinking about more than themselves. I love that he is short-tempered and often acts really stupid. Characters without flaws aren't fun and - more important - don't feel real.
One could choose between a lot of HP covers and I like the German versions very much. But this Ukrainian one of the last book is notable. You could think it's a bit crowded but I love all the details and the positioning and drawing of the characters.
Some other male characters I love are
