Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Book Characters With Brown Eyes

Do you have brown eyes? Do you often read books and wonder ‘why do all the main characters either have blue or green eyes’? Then I can tell you, you’re not alone! I have brown eyes. My sisters both have brown eyes. And I really wish there were more characters in books that have brown eyes. So I decided that for today’s Top Ten, I would make a list of characters with brown eyes! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme organised by The Broke and the Bookish.

Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)
Linh Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles)
June Iparis (Legend)

Melanie Stryder (The Host)
Christina (Divergent)
Lena Haloway (Delirium)

Isabelle Lightwood (The Mortal Instruments)
Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)
Bella Swan (The Twilight Saga)
Margaery Tyrell (A Song of Ice and Fire)

    I have never understood why there are so few characters with brown eyes, considering it’s the most common eye colour!

    • Exactly! But apparently main characters ‘need’ to be unique or something? I don’t even know why authors more often than not choose blue or green (or another ‘unnatural’ colour) eyes for their characters. My books will definitely have characters with brown eyes!

    I have brown eyes! In fact, all the females in my family (my sisters and mom) have brown eyes and all the boys (brothers and dad) have blue. I agree — brown eyes should be featured in books more often. Fun list 🙂

    Happy TTT!

    • Yeah same here, my sister and I all have brown eyes – but we got ours from our dad.. Our mum’s the one with the green eyes…
