Tilly over at The Biblioshelf came up with this gem of a Top Ten Tuesday topic; Characters I’d Follow on Social Media. How fun!
I am sure there are a ton of characters I could come up with for this one if I spent the time to go through my list of books I read over the years. Alas, I do not have the time for that. So these are the first ten that popped in my head. I actually have 11 on my list, there were some stories that had more than one character I wanted to include.
1. & 2. The Stand by Stephen King – Harold and Nick
This one is a two-fer. While Stu is my favorite character from this book (obviously) his social media accounts would be pretty boring. But Harold and Nick would have great accounts, for different reasons. I’m talking Harold before he spirals down that dark path. The quiet nerdy guy who is full of knowledge and wit. And Nick is such a wonderful observer of the world around him and the idiosyncrasies of the people around him. And you guys, if you haven’t read this book you should…although it may be extremely scary with all that’s going on in the world of health right now.
3. Zane by Nicole Edwards – Zane
I love all of the Walker brothers, but Zane is such a fun guy and witty as all get out. This one almost ended up a two-fer like the one above because Zane’s wife, V, could sure give him a run for his money. As much of an emotional punch the stories in the Alluring Indulgence series give, they also keep me laughing.
4. The Darkest Angel by Gena Showalter – Bianka
There are so many characters in this series that are just a hoot. (That sentence sure makes me sound like I’m 80 years old, lol.) I couldn’t help but think that Bianka, the harpy from hell, would have some killer posts on Twitter. She could cut a misogynistic jerk off at the needs with a couple of key strokes.
5. The Darkest King by Gena Showalter – William
I told you there are a lot of characters in the Lords of the Underworld series that are hilarious. And, truth be told, I haven’t even gotten to this book yet. But he’s in pretty much all of the books in this series and I just love this man. I cannot wait to uncover all of his secrets. He’s such a lady’s man, I would love to follow his Instagram to see all his nights out playing out.
6. & 7. The Dark Protectors series by Rebecca Zanetti – Katie and Janie
Katie and Janie are both in many of the books in this series so I wasn’t sure which picture to use. Since these books are centered around Janie more than anything else I used her book cover. Janie has been through so much from the time she was just a toddler, but she’s still fights to be as “normal” of a teenager as possible when she hits that stage. She would have some interesting posts, to be sure. And Katie is so full of energy and has such a strong sense of self, she sees things a bit different than the rest of her community. Both of these women would really keep my timeline interesting.
8. Accidentally on Purpose by Jill Shalvis – Elle Wheaton
Who couldn’t use an Elle in their life? I can only imagine this woman’s Instagram. Her outfits, her shoes, her sharp humor. On top of all that, she’s an extremely caring and giving person.
9. Now That You Mention It by Kristan Higgins – Poe
I think we all have a bit of a disgruntled teenager inside of us. While Poe starts off that way, she truly blossoms in this book. Sure, the story is about her aunt. But Poe is who I would want to check in on every day. I can just imagine the progression of her tweets from complaining about her aunt to loving life.
10. Dirty by Kylie Scott – Lydia
The first chapter of this story is hilarious. All women can put themselves in Lydia’s shoes and be mortified while laughing their butts off at her predicament. Then, the reader discovers Lydia is quite smart and kind and really just trying to find her way…like everyone else in this world.
11. Just What I Needed by Lorelei James – Trinity
Another character that pretty much all women can recognize and sympathize with. Trinity has grit and determination in spades. She’s also one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet.
Like I said, there are so many more characters that would be wonderful to follow on social media. I can’t wait to see everyone else’s picks.
The only character I recognize here is Lydia from Dirty haha. But the other books look cool, too! Picked up a couple new books from here haha.
My TTT, if you’re interested: https://thewordyhabitat.wordpress.com/2020/02/25/the-last-ten-books-that-gave-me-a-book-hangover/
She’s such a great character, so that’s a good thing. I love picking up new book ideas from other people’s TTT.
I’d love to follow Harold and Nick’s accounts. Great choices!
My TTT .
It’s cool that you came up with more than ten answers. I found it hard to get to ten this week.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
I have whole weeks I can’t think of anything, so it’s fun when I can actually come up with a full ten or more.
These all sound amazing. I still have to get into the Stand either book or series.
