Okay guys, I haven’t participated in TTT for ages but I’ve always enjoyed looking at others’. Since I’m feeling a renewed enthusiasm for blogging and found this week’s topic to be a lot of fun, here we go! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely ladies of The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s topic is a back to school special: Who’s at your lunch table?
Now, this took some self-editing. I had to think about who I would actually hang out with (Nick Twisp ala Youth in Revolt), and not just who I’d like to think I’d hang out with (Kate Daniels ala Ilona Andrews…badass I am not). Here are the results–what I personally think might just be the coolest crowd this school’s ever seen:
- Adam from The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater: Adam’s just plain a good guy. Seriously folks, my heart aches for this young man, and I’d totally befriend him (but probably wouldn’t date him either, sorry, Adam).
- Kat from Gunnerkrigg Court by Thomas Siddell: Kat’s the shit people. She’s incredibly smart, fun loving, creative, and loyal.
- Cather from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: You’ve all read Fangirl, right? Do I really need to explain this one? We’d totally geek out together, and she’d let me feel a little superior about the fact that I don’t write fan fiction.
- Cress from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer: OMG, Cress is all sorts of awkward and bumbling. I can totally see taking her under my wing and giving her pep talks about Thorne.
- Jack from The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde: Well, duh. If any of you haven’t realized this, my blog name’s an homage to this great play and character (with Algernon too). Jack would be my absolute best friend–we’d be like Jack and Violet in the fantastic All Men of Genius retelling mash-up.
- Cameron Post from The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth: Cameron and I basically shared a childhood (minus some sexual exploration on my part)–I love this girl. I’d probably spend high school trying to hook her up with Kat from Gunnerkrigg.
- Merope from Blackout and All Clear by Connie Willis: Merope’s a bit of the sweet Pollyanna type, but I always need at least one friend whose optimism and unyielding spirit last through anything.
- Sophos from The Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner: Sophos was always much more approachable to me than Gen. Gen’s the guy I’d admire from a distance, Sophos is the one I’d actually talk to and hang out with.
- Fred and George Weasley from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling: Total. Utter. Crush. No joke, I have a thing for tricksters, and I would have burned pretty bad for these two while hoping they’d never, ever notice. They’re basically the Ron to my Hermione.
- Lex from the Croak series by Gina Damico: She’s hilariously morose, sarcastic, and pretty damn witty. Heck yeah we’d be palls.
Yeah you know you want to hang out with us.
