Books and Waffles Alphabetical: Y

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Resolutions/Hopes for 2021. I don’t really make a lot of resolutions for the year, so instead of trying to come up with ten things, I’m going to share another alphabetical post.


  • Credit Alex for the idea, and link back
  • Post at your own pace, do as many or as few letters as you want
  • Post your favourite authors, books and characters (ABCs) for a particular letter of the alphabet

I can’t believe I only have one more to do after this. Y was hit or miss. Authors and characters were surprisingly easy to come up with, but I don’t know as many books that start with Y, which is seems odd to me. Though, most of the names on this list are from manga.


Satsuki Yoshino: One of my favorite manga series is Barakamon so of course she makes my list.

Kiiro Yumi: My other favorite manga series is Library Wars (I know, I talk about it all the time), so Yumi makes my list for Y as well!


A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck: It has been a really long time since I read this book, but I remember enjoying it. I remember such random glimpses of events that happened in this book.

Your Name by Makoto Shinkai: While I think the film of this story is the best version, the manga was great too. I love the story so much.


Yael from Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin: Okay, Yael is easily one of my favorite female YA characters because she kicks butt. Plus having the ability to change her appearance as well as a vendetta to kill Hitler—absolutely epic.

Nagato Yuki from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya / The Disappearance of Nagaot Yuki-chan by Nagaru Tanigawa: I relate so much to Nagato Yuki. She’s one of my favorite manga/anime characters.

Which authors, books, and characters do you love that begin with the letter Y?

  1. I really enjoyed the Your Name film, but I haven’t read the manga. My niece started it recently, though, so maybe I’ll borrow the manga from her.

    I can’t think of any “Y” characters or authors at the moment, but I know that the Young Wizards series by Diane Duane will be on my list (since I try to include series as well).
