Top Ten Tuesdays #3

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme at The Broke and the Bookish. This week the theme is top ten characters that you would most like to be friends with. My list is as follows:

1. Hermione Granger, Harry Potter Series: From the very beginning I have loved this character. She reminds me so much of myself and I think we would get along quite well. Plus I always thought she needed a girl friend as she is always hanging out with the guys.

2. The Wakefield twins, Sweet Valley High: I read a lot of Sweet Valley when I was younger and I always wanted to be friends with these two. I have to admit though that I was partial to Elizabeth. I always found Jessica could be a bit of a handful.

3. Becky Bloomwood, Shopaholic Series: I have to say the only reason I would like to be friends with Becky is so I could give her some sound advice and on occasion shake her and ask her what she was thinking.

4. Georgia Walker, The Friday Night Knitting Club: I loved this book and it's sequel Knit Two. I have to say that I think Georgia had the kindest heart and was such an amazing woman and inspiration. I definitely wouldn't mind being her friend.

5. Sookie Stackhouse: I think this character has a lot of spunk. She is not afraid to tell you exactly what she is thinking but she also cares a great deal about the people in her life.

6. Flavia de Luce, Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie: This little girl is just amazing. She is smart and she has a good sense of humour. She is also a great detective. I mean who wouldn't love a girl who puts poison in her sister's lipstick to get revenge?

7. Anne, Anne of Green Gables: Anne is a great girl. She also has a bit of spunk to her. Based on later novels though she would do anything for a good friend; just ask Diana.

8. Lizzie Bennet, Pride and Prejudice: She knows what she wants and is not afraid to not just ask for it but demand it.

9. Pip, Great Expectations: I would have just liked to be there as a source of support as he didn't have much of that. I always felt for him and I wished that he had a good friend to guide him along the way.

10. Alex Cross, James Patterson's Cross Series: I just think that he is a bit bad ass and I wouldn't mind having someone there for security. He is also an amazing father which makes him endearing.

Well those are mine. What are yours?


  1. Jessica Wakefield used to drive me mad, but Elizabeth could sometimes be just a little too prim and proper. They're balance each other so well together, I used to love reading their books as a kid

  2. I love that you have Becky Bloomwood on your list! I thought about adding her to mine but I real mostly urban fantasy and didn`t want to admit having read the series. Nice picks all around!

  3. Man, I can't believe that I forgot both Hermione and Flavia. I should go back and amend my list! You've got a good one!

  4. Anne, definitely. Who wouldn't love to be friends with her?!

    I'm a new follower!


  5. Thanks for all your comments. I love doing these lists. I think that you learn a lot about people from these lists.

  6. Oh I love that you added Sweet Valley High! This makes me want to go completely re-do my list! lol I LOVED those books when I was a teenager. In the Harry Potter world, Hermione would be a great friend, but I would have to go with Luna as my choice, I absolutely adore her eccentricities and genuine kindness.
