Top Ten Tuesday Turns 10! Option 1: pick a past TTT topic you’ve done and re-do/update it (Perhaps you’d remove certain books you put on the list back when you first wrote it, or perhaps you have 10 MORE books you’d add to that list now. You could also re-visit TBR posts, whether seasonal or series you need to finish, etc., and tell us if you’ve read them yet or not. Any variation of this idea works. Feel free to be creative.) Option 2: pick a past TTT topic you wish you’d done, but didn’t get a chance to do (the list of topics is below).
Since I just started with TTT I decided to choose Option 2 and picked the following topic:
Which book characters would you be best friends with?
1.) Nikolai Lantsov & Nina Zenik from „King of Scars“ by Leigh Bardugo
2.) Simon Spiers from „Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda“ by Becky Albertalli
Simon is such a precious cinnamon roll and I’m convinced if he’d be real, we’d be besties. We have a lot in common and I think we’d be something like twins without actually being twins. *lol* Of all the book characters I encountered through the years, he was the most relatable one and I’d love to geek out about Harry Potter! We could make movie nights with popcorn and talk about thousands of things. In short: Forget about Leah, Simon! Take me as your bestie!!! *lol*
3.) Mia Corvere & Mr. Kindly from „Nevernight“ by Jay Kristoff
4.) Lucien Vanserra & basically everyone from the inner circle from „ACOTAR“ by Sarah J. Maas (but mostly Lucien)
It’s no secret that I love and adore Lucien and of course there are plenty of reasons for my unfaltering and undying affection. One of them the simple fact that he’s such a great friend! And I mean it! The inner circle, Feyre and Rhys they all speak about what they’d do for the people they love, but they rarely act on it. Of course they ocassionaly do it but Lucien? Lucien is always action and passion! His eye got ripped out because of his loyalty to Tam, he was whipped because he helped Feyre in the trials, hell he even kind of sold his body when Tam couldn’t do the solstice ritual. And despite all of this he’d still do everything possible to help his friends. (See Tam in ACOFAS) So yes, if I ever have to face an evil fae king or queen he’s really the only one I’d want to have at my side. XD
5.) Tohru Honda from „Fruits Basket“ by Natsuki Takaya
I love Tohru!!! This girl is amazing! No matter how tough her own life is, she always cares about everyone else. She’s the most caring and precious person I know and her love for her friends is unconditional. Tohru will go through thick and thin with you and accept you for who you are! With a friend like her you’ll never feel alone and quite honestly she’s my role model when it comes to friendships. I strive to be like Tohru when I’m grown-up. *lol*
6.) The Gangsey from „The Raven Cycle“ by Maggie Stiefvater
Did you really think I could pick just one of them? *lol* No, nopedy nope! I want to be a part of the Gangsey and I want to be friends with all of those lovely people! Even Henry (I love Henry) and Blue! XD They are all so amazing and I’d die for each and every single one of them. Yes, they are fictional but hell, I’d love to have them as my friends!!! ❤ Or to say it with a quote: „In that moment, Blue was a little in love with all of them. Their magic. Their quest. Their awfulness and strangeness. Her raven boys.“
7.) Niall, Seth and Irial from „Wicked Lovely“ by Melissa Marr
8.) Kenji Kishimoto from „Shatter Me“ by Tahereh Mafi
I love Kenji’s humor and everyone who is allowed to be his friend is blessed!! That boy is made of awesome sauce and no one can persuade me otherwise. I love how he seems to be the glue who keeps everyone together and I’d be happy to talk about Bruce Lee with him! *lol* He’s always supportive and this even though he might not agree with you and even though he’s funny he can still be serious if need be. What’s not to love?
9.) Jem Carstairs & Magnus Bane from „The Infernal Devices“ by Cassandra Clare
10.) Harry Dresden from „The Dresden Files“ by Jim Butcher
What do you think? Would you like to be best friends with some of the characters I chose too? Do we have some in common? And are there any book characters you’d never want to be friends with?
Talk to me and let me know! 😛
