Let's Discuss: Favorite Animal Companions

Today I venture back to the list Nicole provided as I was struggling to figure out what to chat about! I was browsing through the posts, skipping over the ones I know I did already at some point and saw one that I don't remember talking about, so I thought it'd be fun to do!


Favorite Animal Companions


Every now and then I'll read a book and the character will have an animal companion! Maybe it's a pet or maybe it's a helpful or not so helpful guide in the world of the weird! The one that came to mind immediately however was a one of those guides that was both helpful and not so helpful...

Grimalkin may look like a cat, but is still a fae, but let's face it, we see him more as a cat! He would dispense information that was helpful in a sense, but he was more of a sarcastic guide as well. It's been years since I read the Iron Fey series so I can't remember him precisely, I just remember loving when this guy walked onto the scene because I knew there would be a few laughs to come!

At this point in the time of writing this post, I can't remember another animal sidekick. Only vaguely if a character had a pet, but it wasn't a paranormal or magical kind of read. 

Of course there are a handful of animals to love from Harry Potter too, naturally!

I think my favorite from Harry Potter will always be Hedwig! I loved that little owl and of course her fate always kills me! Buckbeak was another favorite as well, Fang too...as I said, there are a lot of animals to love in this series!!


What have been some of your favorite animals that popped up in books?

  1. My favorite animal companion is Enzo from The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. I love this novel!! It made me cry big time as I am an avid dog lover and this novel is told from the point of view of the dog. If you're a dog lover and haven't read this novel yet, then I highly recommend reading it!

  2. It's been so long since I read the Iron King, but I loved Grimalkin as well. And so many animals in Harry Potter. Not sure if I have a favorite. Fun post!

  3. I always love when characters have animals to care for. Dogs are my favorite, but if the setting is right, a faithful horse is also an animal companion I love to see as I read.
