Top Ten Tuesday #72


Hi everyone! This is yet another scheduled post, when you guys are reading this I will be having fun with my best friend at Thorpe Park (next week’s will be the last of my scheduled TTT posts, as I’m heading back up to Uni, after that they will be as unplanned and spontaneous as they were before, thank goodness because this whole prior planning thing is very stressful!). Anyway, this week’s topic is a back to school related freebie (though I don’t actually head back to Uni until next week), so as my choice for this topic, I’ve decided to do Top Ten Characters I Would Loved To Have Gone To School With, as I thought that would be a fun topic to do and there are lots of characters from books that would have made my school days way more fun. So here we go, Top Ten Characters I Would Have Loved To Have Gone To School With:

  1. Hermione Granger-Harry Potter Series-JK Rowling

Who wouldn’t want to go to school with Hermione? If I went to school with her then that would mean I would go to Hogwarts right? I’m going to go with yes, if I went to school with Hermione I would be at Hogwarts. Plus she’s so smart, she could do my homework for me! (I mean she does Harry’s and Ron’s all the time in the books, so I’m sure mine would be NBD). And we could talk about books and magic and other cool stuff and it would be so much fun!

2. Fred and George Weasley-Harry Potter Series-JK Rowling

Again, going to school with these two would mean I’d be at Hogwarts, but also I reckon just being at school with Fred and George would be so much fun because they’d be pulling pranks all the time and it would be hilarious and they could teach me yes?

3. Percy Jackson-Percy Jackson Series-Rick Riordan

If we went to the same school we’d have a better chance of dating right? Plus trouble seems to follow Percy everywhere, so I reckon going to school with him would be a lot of fun. And maybe one day he could take me to Camp Half-Blood, that would be cool.

4. Belle-Beauty and The Beast

Okay so not a book character, but if I went to school with Belle then she could take me to see the library that the beast gave her (and then tell me how to get one of my own which is like my biggest dream ever) and we could talk about books all day whilst sitting reading her ginormous library. Ah bookworm goals!

5. The Gangsey-The Raven Cycle-Maggie Stiefvater

If I went to school with these guys, then I could go ley line and dead Welsh King hunting with them, how cool would that be? Plus, I could hang out at 300 Fox Way with Blue and her family which would be awesome. I could learn how to read Tarot Cards and go exploring all over Virginia…….yup I would definitely love to have gone to school with these guys (Sure Aglionby is a boys’ school, but I’m sure we could change that…..)

6. Celaena Sardothien (Aelin Galathynius)-Throne of Glass Series

If we went to school together, she could teach me how to do cool assassiny things. And magic. And we could talk about books, and eat chocolate, and I could play with Fleetfoot, basically, we’d have a great time.

7. Liesel Meminger-The Book Thief-Markus Zusak

Granted, I’d rather we went to the same school in my decade rather than hers, because I wouldn’t want to live in 1930s Germany, but I’d love to go to school with Liesel, we could talk about books and she could teach me German.

8. Amy Fleming-Heartland-Lauren Brooke

If I had gone to school with Amy and we had been friends, we could have gone riding together (which would be a lot of fun) and I could watch her work with problem horses and maybe even learn some natural horsemanship which would be awesome.

9. Luna Lovegood-Harry Potter-JK Rowling

Because Luna is awesome and I would love to hang out with her, I reckon you’d learn something new and crazy and awesome every day and it would just be so much fun to hang out with her.

10. Neville Longbottom-Harry Potter-JK Rowling

I love Neville, he’s so cute and you just want to give him a hug. Plus he got really hot by seventh year! And he’s awkward and adorable and brave and just generally such a lovely person, I would have loved to go to school with him.

That’s all for this week, I’m going to actually restrain myself and stick to ten, though I could probably have thought of more! What topic did you choose for your freebie this week? When do you head back to school? Would you have liked to go to school with any of these characters too? Let me know! Next week’s topic is TV themed, so I’m going to do Top Ten TV Shows I’m Looking Forward To Returning. In the meantime, I am planning to have my last August discussion post up tomorrow, so stay tuned for that!

      Yup absolutely anything! I will make sure to check your list out.

    I would have been able to attend school with Hermione and the Hogwarts gang if they had managed to send that owl. I just don’t know how they were able to botch it.
    Gangsey! I’ve not heard that term before, it’s such a nice way to describe the Raven Cycle group. They would be fun to hangout with! Though I’m not sure about attending Aglionby.

    • iloveheartlandx 30/08/2016 / 9:26 pm

      Neither do I. I mean it’s been almost nine years, that is an incredibly slow owl! Unfortunately it’s not something I came up with, I think it’s a Tumblr term! Yes they would. Yeah, I’m starting to rethink that one!

    • iloveheartlandx 30/08/2016 / 9:25 pm

      Oh I’m glad, I always worry with freebies that my topic isn’t unique enough! Thanks πŸ™‚ I will check out your list.

  2. Amy 30/08/2016 / 6:17 pm

    I’m glad you picked this topic. It’s so fun! I would have loved to go to school with so many of these characters. πŸ™‚

  3. lindseyhabets 30/08/2016 / 7:18 pm

    I love your take on this week’s topic! And I can’t think of anything better than being able to go to school with all of these characters. Going to school would be so much fun πŸ™‚

    • iloveheartlandx 30/08/2016 / 9:20 pm

      Thanks! Me either, school would have been way more fun if I could have gone to school with these characters!

  4. Jane @ Greenish Bookshelf 31/08/2016 / 2:40 am

    I love this list so much! Such a fun take on the topic this week. I found myself just nodding in agreement with every character. I would LOVE to go to Hogwarts with all the characters you mention. And I think Liesel would be such an interesting classmate. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog earlier πŸ™‚

    • iloveheartlandx 31/08/2016 / 11:00 am

      Thanks! Yes, it would be so much fun. I agree, she would be be a very interesting classmate. No problem!

  5. foxyblogs1 31/08/2016 / 3:19 am

    This is a clever topic!!! I would love to go to school with the HP characters too. That would have been fun!


  6. daniellepitter 31/08/2016 / 3:35 am

    I’m surprised you didn’t add Harry and Ron to go to school with but that would be convenient lol. And I’d love to see Hermione, Neville and Luna in school too! And I noticed you did armchair BEA this year and last year, how does that work? I live in NJ which is near NYC but I could never afford to actually go. So if I could do ABEA, that would be fun too πŸ™‚

    My TTT:

    • iloveheartlandx 31/08/2016 / 10:58 am

      I couldn’t have an entire list of Harry Potter characters! Yes, that would be awesome. If you follow the ABEA account on Twitter then you can get all the information from that, including when and where to sign up.

      • daniellepitter 31/08/2016 / 1:30 pm

        Ok thank you so much!! πŸ™‚

    Oh, great topic. I would’ve loved to go to school with the HP characters. Especially Fred & George. And the Gangsey’s too. πŸ™‚
    Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my TTT earlier.

  10. Ellis Ferrell 31/08/2016 / 6:34 pm

    Great topic! I think I would have enjoyed going to school with any of the Harry Potter characters πŸ™‚

  11. Liz Whitehouse 31/08/2016 / 8:04 pm

    Great way too mix this week’s topic up a little bit!

    Let’s be honest, who doesn’t wish they had gone to school with the HP characters (I’m 24 and still hoping for a Hogwarts letter!)

    • iloveheartlandx 01/09/2016 / 12:08 am

      Thanks! I’m going to say no one. Everyone wants to go to Hogwarts!

  12. mackiekblog 31/08/2016 / 8:47 pm

    I like how you picked who you would want to go to school with! I love how many of them were from harry potter. I wouldn`t have minded going to school with Draco. He wasn`t a nice character, but I do find Tom Felton to be super attractive.

    • iloveheartlandx 01/09/2016 / 12:06 am

      Thanks πŸ™‚ Yeah I really want to go to Hogwarts! I agree, Tom Felton is super hot πŸ™‚

  13. Beth (Reading Every Night) 31/08/2016 / 10:08 pm

    I loved your take on this week’s topic, and all the characters you picked as well. Pretty much everyone on this list are characters I would have loved to go to school with, especially Fred and George that would have been amazing.
    Great picks for this week! πŸ˜€

    • iloveheartlandx 01/09/2016 / 12:05 am

      Thanks πŸ™‚ Ah yes, Fred and George at school would have been so much fun!

  14. @lynnsbooks 31/08/2016 / 11:43 pm

    Woo hoo – loads of HP characters – I should have reblogged this for my Harry Potter month!
    Love it.
    Lynn πŸ˜€

    • iloveheartlandx 01/09/2016 / 12:04 am

      Yup! What can I say, I really want to go to Hogwarts! Thanks πŸ™‚

  15. tehkelsey 01/09/2016 / 1:57 am

    I love this TTT idea!!! I wish I’d thought of it. School with anyone from HP would be so awesome!

    • iloveheartlandx 01/09/2016 / 4:25 pm

      Thanks! I always struggle to come up with something original for freebies, so I’m glad I thought of this. Yes it would be!

  16. Jess @Bird, Books, and Coffee 01/09/2016 / 2:15 am

    I love, love this list! πŸ™‚ What a great twist on the theme. I wish I had thought of this. lol. I agree with every single choice. πŸ™‚

    • iloveheartlandx 01/09/2016 / 4:24 pm

      Thanks! Yeah I’m glad I did this, it seems like no one else did it!

  17. Amanda 01/09/2016 / 3:07 am

    Yes to Belle and all the Harry Potter characters!

  18. Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense 02/09/2016 / 4:01 am

    I think we need to go to school with all the HP characters. Fred and George would be a blast to be around and I’ve love to hang out with Luna. I’d totally help her find her shoes!

    • iloveheartlandx 02/09/2016 / 11:42 am

      Yup we do! Oh they so would and hopefully if I helped Luna find her shoes she might let me borrow them, since she has some funky shoes!

  19. Joanna (@joannasbookmark) 02/09/2016 / 9:08 am

    This was such a cool post idea for this week’s top ten. I’d love to have gone to school with Fred, George and Ron πŸ™‚

  20. Kristine 04/09/2016 / 1:29 am

    I love your twist on this week’s freebie and I agree with so many of your choices. Especially with George and Fred Weasley! Who wouldn’t want a dragon firework going off in the hallway and scaring all of their teachers! Thanks for stopping by and great list!

    • iloveheartlandx 04/09/2016 / 1:05 pm

      Thanks! I’m going to go with no one because that would be awesome! No problem πŸ™‚

  21. Anjie @ Love thy Shelf 04/09/2016 / 9:49 pm

    What a fun topic! I would have love to go to school with Fred and George!! School would never be boring haha. I would also want to go with Will Herondale and Tessa! How fun, we’d talk about books all day!

    • iloveheartlandx 05/09/2016 / 12:37 am

      Thanks! Yeah, it would have always been so much fun right. I haven’t read the series those characters are in but I know who you mean and yes it would be fun to talk books all day.

  22. beckmank 06/09/2016 / 4:41 pm

    I love your take on this topic! Fred and George would be my number one. How fun would school be – especially magical boarding school – with these two around?! Great list!

  23. adventurekettle 13/09/2016 / 2:54 pm

    Great post! Belle, Hermione, and Luna would have been my BBFs!

  24. Cynthia @ Bingeing On Books 15/09/2016 / 11:04 am

    Oh man, yes to ALL the Harry Potter characters!! That would be amazing!! I did love Luna (probably almost as much as Hemoine) so I agree with you completely on that one. Great spin on the topic!
