Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Character's You'd Want as Family Members
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten List: The Top 10 Characters You Wish Were Members of Your Family
More specifically August Boatwright. Talk about a lovely, nurturing motherly type. I wouldn't mind her being in my family one bit.
Is there anyone more good and just in all of literature? I think not. I'd certainly want him to be my dad.
They are delightfully eccentric. Who cares if they're poor? They're fun to be around.
Anyone who rescues a dog from being carted away to animal control and then names that dog after the grocery store she found him in is one sweet, fun-loving kid. I think I'd like to hang out with her!
Moose is a good kid and I always felt really bad for him the way his mom always made him be a third parent to his autistic sister Natalie. If I were related to him I'd tell his mom to back off!
I loved how Julian embraced his weirdness and didn't care what others thought of him. He marched to the beat of his own drum and encouraged others to follow along to his rhythm.
C'mon! Who wouldn't love having this kid as their fun, flamboyant gay cousin? He'd be so entertaining on holidays.
Let's see... she took the place of her sister in the Capitol's gruesome fight to the death... and she won. (I'm assuming that you've probably already read the book so sorry for the spoiler) Yeah, I think I'd want her to be my sister!
Clever, witty, and full of stories from Paris. I'd definitely want to sit with her at the Thanksgiving dinner table - just tell her to bring St. Clair with her!
OK, so I know that Mia's entire family dies in the first few pages of the book, but the entire time I was reading this book, all I could think about was how absolutely cool her family was and how much I wished I had parents like hers.
