Top Ten Book Characters I'd Love to Be Besties With

Happy Top Ten Tuesday over at That Artsy Reader Girl!

Top Ten Book Characters I'd Love to Be Besties With

1. Meg Murry from A Wrinkle in Time

        I've always related to Meg and thought we would be good friends. We could defy the unctuous principal together and go on adventures in space and mitochondria alike!

2. Jo March from Little Women

 I've always admired Jo March, not to mention Louisa May Alcott, and I bet we could have some fun climbing trees and imagining worlds to conquer. 

3. Emily from Emily of New Moon

      Emily and Ilse always seem like they have a lot of fun clambering over the countryside and making up stories. I'd love to romp and talk with Emily.

4. Grace Delarua from The Best of All Possible Worlds

 Besides being a kind, smart person, Grace has contagious laughter! When she laughs, people          around her feel good. That's a friend I want by my side!

5. Anlei from Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon

Anlei can fight off dangerous lunar spirits and demons. Plus, she's a talented gymnast and            performer. I like a friend who can protect and entertain me, plus I think we have a lot in common. 

6. Blue from The Raven Boys
I enjoy Blue's sensibility and sense of style. I think we would have a lot in common, plus she could teach me about tarot, which I've wanted to know more about ever since I read these books. 

7. Wren from Girls of Paper and Fire

Wren dances, fights, and looks forbidding in dark dresses. Plus, she has a lot of secrets. I couldn't help being attracted to her as a friend. 

8. Cath from Fangirl

I want to write with Cath! I love how dedicated she is to her writing, but also how collaborative she is, and I think we could cook up something fun. 

9. Amara from Children of Blood and Bone

I'd love to go to restaurants with Amara and have her describe how much she enjoys what she's eating. Amara really appreciates the finer things in life (food!) and we have some deep down commonalities that I think would make us close.

10. Ead Duryan from The Priory of the Orange Tree
Besides being a secret warrior spy, Ead is an especially loyal friend that I'd be lucky to have.

You're making me so curious about reading Fangirl. Why must my TBR already be so long? LOL.


Judy Krueger said...

What a curious and almost creepy idea, to be friends with a fictional character. Would I become fictional myself? Just kidding but I am still waking up so your post was almost like a dream moment. Still, I feel I have been best friends with Jo March for most of my life.

Lydia, I would definitely recommend Fangirl! TBRs are meant to be long!

Judy, sometimes I wouldn't mind being fictional. But from the amount of time I've spent with her, you're right, Jo March and I are good friends already.

Lovely list! Yes, befriending a fictional character sounds bit creepy, but then again, I love the worlds of fiction to retreat into.

Jessica Elizabeth said...

YES, I love that you included Emily of New Moon. I'm definitely into that.
