Sometimes when I see the topics for Top Ten Tuesday I get super excited. Like this week’s them of Book Characters I’d Love to be Besties With, what a cool thing to think about. I know I’ve often found myself thinking about meeting characters in real life while reading books, as I’m sure most avid readers have. Yet, when I sit down to make my list, my mind goes blank. I know I cannot be the only one this happens to. So I’m going to try to just put the ideas down as they pop into my head and hope I can come up with ten. As usual, when I see everyone else’s lists I’ll wonder why such and such characters didn’t make its way into my brain.
Savannah aka Savvy from To Be Honest by Maggie Ann Martin
Amun from The Darkest Secret (and others) by Gena Showalter
Max from Tempted (and others) by Rebecca Zanetti
Jessie from Cowgirls Don’t Cry by Lorelei James
John aka Preacher from Shelter Mountain (and others) by Robyn Carr
Derek from Love Like Ours by Melissa Foster
Nina Romano from Dockside (and others) by Susan Wiggs
Chris from The Body aka Stand By Me by Stephen King
Jumper from Castle Roogna by Piers Anthony
I did it! Ten characters I’d love to be have as friends. I got lucky and books started popping into my head. There are so, so, so many more. I was trying my best not to to with the obvious (I’m looking at you Hermione Granger!), although I have no issue with others doing that. But I was trying to exercise my foggy brain and not end up with a list that looked too much like anyone else’s. Who’s your book BFF?
