Top Ten Tuesday: Who would you be friends with?
Top Ten Tuesday, always a favourite with me and especially this one as the topic is Top Ten Characters I'd Like to Be Best Friends With! Difficult topic in a sense because there are so many to chose from but also a really great topic for the same reason. If you want to play along, go to The Broke and the Bookish to sign up - http://www.brokeandbookish.blogspot.com
So here I go:
10)Princess Mia from the series by Meg Cabot because she is a teenage princess with a zest for life.
9)Athos, Porthos, Aramis and d'Artagnan from "The Three Musketeers" by Alexandre Dumas. They would have your back in a fight and be fun on a night out, I am sure.
8) Anne from "Anne of Green Gables". She would have been the perfect childhood friend - and when I was a girl I used to pretend that she was my friend.
7)Sparhawk from the Elenium series by David Eddings. Strong, cool fighter with a soft heart and a dry humour. He always makes me feel at ease when I read and re-read these books!
6) Aliena from "The Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett. Strong girl who would be not only a friend but a role model as well.
5)Judith Taverner from "Regency Buck" by Georgette Heyer. Judith is cool, she dares venture beyond the regency perceptions of how a lady should act. I admire her strong will and courage and would love to go for a drive around Hyde Park with her.
4) Peeta from "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins. He is such a loyal, clever guy who seems genuinely nice. Somebody you could come to with a problem or when you need a friend.
3)Elizabeth Bennett from "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen. She would be the kind of girl that you can go to when you need advice or when you need someone to share an hour-long conversation about all the big things in life with.
2)Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series. Clever, fun and loyal, she is definitely a girl I would like to hang out with.
1) Kay and Finn (and Ava) from "The Sopranos" and "The Stars in the Bright Sky". I think I would fit right in with these girls.
Which characters would you like to be friends with?
