Top 5 Wednesday – Favourite Teachers/Mentors

Hey Hi Hello, how are you all? I HAVE ONE MORE DAY TILL TERM BREAK and I’m so excited. That means reading and writing and lots and lots of sleep. Anyhoww, today’s post is my first T5W!

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly feature held over at TFW. Each Wednesday there’s an assigned theme and you list your top 5 answers!


So this weeks theme is favourite teachers/mentors, so here we go!

Top 5 Teachers/Mentors


Lady Mykaela

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

Lady Mykaela takes the young and inexperienced Tea (our protagonist) under her wing and teaches her how to act within society as an asha (very cool peeps with powers that are sometimes looked down upon because society doesn’t understand) and how to use her powers. It was so nice seeing a wise figure guide Tea along her journey, especially seeing as Tea was a tad reckless (just a smidge you know)


Scythe Faraday and Scythe Curie

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Faraday and Curie are both so important in the journey of Citra and Rowan. They’re both such good people, who’s morals reflect upon the way Citra and Rowan grow into the Scythes society. Also their humour is top notch? Like all 4 of them. (has this turned into me telling you to read Scythe? Maybe oops?)


Eleanor West

Every Heart  A Doorway by Seanan McGuire

So basically in this book, there are doors to different worlds. They open for children who feel lost in the ‘real world’, and so the children who go through these doors end up in places where they feel they belong.

The whole problem is that sometimes they get kicked out/find themselves back in the real world. They feel lost, displaced and confused AND that’s where Eleanor West comes in. She takes in these children and looks after them. She herself can open her door and go back to her world but instead doesn’t. She stays and looks out for these kids and SHES AMAZING


Dr Jonathon Wadsworth

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Audrey lives in a time where women are expected to be all prim and proper. She herself defies those gender stereotypes by studying forensic science (how scandalous I know) and her uncle who studies and teaches this allows her to do so. He sees her talent and continues teaching her, even though he is put down himself for what he does and by her father who would probably think he’s corrupting (i guess?) Audrey. I just love this book (wow look another book you should read what a coincidence) and the characters and her uncle is someone who should be appreciated.


Miss Peregrine

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Like Eleanor West, Miss Peregrine also takes in children. This time children who are ‘peculiar’. She makes sure they’re kept safe from the villains (who are really creepy btw)  + she’s just such an important character in this series and is amazing? and awesome? yes

So hope you guys enjoyed that! I really love mentors/teachers in books because somehow our MCs are always reckless and they need to be stopped by someone

  1. I’m kind of dying to read Bone Witch (heard it’s a slow burn, but it sounds like my kind of thing?), and I haven’t heard great things about Scythe, but I’m glad the mentors had a good sense of humor at least. Haha and I totally agree – our MCs tend to be a bit of a mess without someone knocking some sense into them, so mentors tend to be my favorite characters. Lovely list! 😀

    1. It is and I hope you enjoy it! Ah you haven’t heard good things about Scythe? I personally love it! There’s character growth, it’s funny at times and it brings up discussion on the value of life + talks about death and morality. Ahh yes they really do need someone to control them haha. Thank you!

      1. Yes! I’d taken it off my TBR after hearing some pretty negative things about it, but knowing that there’s humor and moral lessons definitely makes me want to reconsider this. Thank you for letting me know!


      2. Kekeke I felt no passive-aggressiveness there at all. ❤ It IS good to get everyone's perspectives on a book (I literally read 1-star reviews of my favorite books just for the kicks), and I myself am very glad to have gotten your perspective on this book. Cheers! 😀
