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?


  1. I think in hindsight Peeta should have been on my list. He is fab. And I'm reading Catching Fire at the moment. Thanks for the follow btw, I'm following you too :)

  2. I love Sparhawk! He's an excellent choice :)

  3. Peeta is a great choice... I completely overlooked him.

  4. Peeta, Hermione and Elizabeth Bennett...great picks, Willa! :)

  5. I used to pretend Anne was my friend too!

  6. Peeta and the Three Musketeers! :D Great choices.

  7. I left Lizzy Bennet off my list, and that's just wrong. Peeta is another good one to have. I thought Anne might be a little too happy, but she was on my mind. I would have spent all my time trying to get her to make up with Gilbert...but wait, Diana did that!

  8. The Three Musketeers! How could I have left them off my list?!

  9. Thanks for all your comments :-) I think a couple of faves have emerged: Anne, Peeta and Lizzy!

  10. Definitely the Three Musketeers! They could teach me how to fence and have a generally good time.

  11. I'd like to be friends with Elizabeth Bennett, too. In fact, I wouldn't mind being Elizabeth Bennett for a day or two. Thanks for visiting my blog; it's nice to meet you!
