Finding authors for O wasn’t hard, but book titles and characters proved difficult. I did manage to think of three for each category, though.
Kayla Olson: Not only do I like her books, but Kayla is a wonderful and uplifting person. I love seeing her Instagram posts and stories, and I can’t wait for whatever book she writes next.
Margaret Owen: I’ve only read one book by Margaret Owen but it blew me away. I need more of her writing and world-building.
Once Upon an Alaskan Summer by Lisa T. Bergren: I don’t prefer the contemporary romance genre, but Lisa always writes good books. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.
Open Road Summer by Emery Lord: This isn’t my favorite of Emery’s books, but I enjoyed it and I love the concept of someone famous falling for someone ordinary.
Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys: All of Ruta’s books are my favorite because they are so important and heart wrenching. Out of the Easy is about a time and place I never thought I’d be interested in, but it was so compelling.
Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: Thorin is not the greatest hero because of his blind flaws, but I admire his heart for his people. In the end, he realizes his mistakes.
Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars: There are enough Star Wars books about Obi-Wan in existence that I’m counting him as a literary character. He’s the best Jedi and one of my all-time favorite Star Wars characters. I love his sass.
Count Olaf from A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket: Even though Olaf is a bad guy, Olaf is one of the best of the series. His character is so well-developed even if he’s a bit silly at times and terrible at being a bad guy.
