Hey everyone! Sorry that I still haven’t got up my post about the Sarah J Maas event, or my review of Empire of Storms yet or my newest discussion post either, but I’m currently in essay hell, I have two essays due on Wednesday, so haven’t had as much time to blog as I would have liked! After Wednesday, I will definitely get to all the posts I’ve been neglecting over the past week or so! Sarah J Maas was awesome, one of my favourite book events that I’ve ever been to, I can’t wait to write my post telling you guys all about it. Anyway, back onto topic, I’m here with another Top Ten Tuesday for you all, courtesy of the lovely ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish. The topic this week was meant to be Top Ten Characters You’d Name Your Kids/Pets/Car after but since I did that one last year, I decided to switch it up a little and do Top Ten Characters I’d Love To Have As Family Members. So here we go, my top ten characters who I’d like to have as family members:
1. The Weasleys-Harry Potter-JK Rowling
I could not do this list without including one of my favourite fictional families (and yes, I am including all of them even Percy). I would love to be a Weasley! I can just imagine the fun I’d have pulling pranks with Fred and George! And you’d get one of Molly’s Christmas jumpers, how awesome would that be?
2. The Women of 300 Fox Way-It would be so much fun to live at 300 Fox Way with Maura, Calla, Orla, Persephone, Jimi and Blue. I reckon I’d get on pretty well with Blue (plus I could be part of the Gangsey) and their house just seems like so much fun to live in!
3. Sirius Black-Harry Potter-JK Rowling
Sirius would be awesome to have as an uncle, he’d tell you all sorts of great stories about his days at Hogwarts with James, Lupin and Pettigrew.
4. Aelin Galathynius-Sarah J Maas-Throne of Glass
Aelin would make the most awesome sister! She could teach me how to fight and if I lived in Erilea then maybe I’d have magic which would be awesome! Plus I’d get to hang out with all of her friends which would be so much fun (especially since I love Dorian!).
5. Katniss Everdeen-The Hunger Games-Suzanne Collins
Katniss is an awesome big sister, after all, she sacrifices herself to save her sister from The Hunger Games, who wouldn’t want a sister like that?
6. Magnus Chase-Magnus Chase: The Sword of Summer-Rick Riordan
Magnus would be so much fun to have as a brother, he has an awesome sense of humour, he loves books, and you could go on cool adventures with him. Granted, he’s dead but that’s a minor detail!
7. Lila Bard-Shades of Magic-VE Schwab
Lila would make an awesome sister! I’d love to go on adventures with her and have her teach me how to be as badass as she is.
8. Samirah Al-Abbas-Magnus Chase: The Sword of Summer-Rick Riordan
Sam is just awesome! She flies planes, she’s smart, she can kick guys’ butts. I’m not sure where in her family I’d fit since I’m not Muslim but it would be pretty awesome to be related to her in some way. Maybe a distant English cousin?
9. Hans Hubermann-The Book Thief-Markus Zusak
Hans is such a sweetheart, I’d love to have him be my father or grandfather. I still can’t talk about what happened to him.
10. Belle-Beauty and The Beast
Okay, technically this is a fairytale not a book but the prompt doesn’t specify that all of your characters have to be from books! I would love Belle to be my sister, we could sit around and talk about books for days on end and go on adventures together. Plus she could take me to the Beast’s Library! It would be awesome.
That’s all for this week! What characters did you choose for this week’s prompt? Would you like to be family members with any of these characters? Let me know in the comments! Next week’s topic is a Halloween related freebie, so I’m going to do Books To Get You In The Halloween Mood (they will probably be more creepy than scary!). That’s next week but in the meantime, I will have a discussion post, my Sarah J Maas event recap and Empire of Storms review up hopefully after Wednesday so stay tuned for those!
I would totally pick Lilah Bard to be my sister too! She could teach me to be a pickpocket, which I would only do if strictly necessary, of course. Great list!
Thanks! Yes obviously pickpocketing would only be used when necessary 🙂
Omg I want THEM ALL AS MY FAMILY!! But like being adopted into any Riordan family would be amazing because everyone is just so funny and awesome.😂 And I loooove the Fox way house and definitely wouldn’t mind being adopted and swallowed by that crazy wonderful family. Also Katniss is like the BEST sister ever. I need a sister like that. I’m willing to trade all 4 of my sisters for 1 Katniss.😂
Yes if I was adopted into any Rick Riordan family I would be super happy (esp if I could marry Percy, because he’s one of my ultimate book bfs!), they’re all so awesome. Yes, living at Fox Way would be so much fun. I know right? She would be a great sister to have!
I really want to be part of the Weasley family. They’re a really awesome family. Oh, and Sirius as an uncle would just be the grandest 🙂
I think everyone would like to be a Weasley. Yes they are! It would be the best, wouldn’t it?
Fun topic choice! I think we’d all love to be part of the Weasley family! 🙂
Thanks! Yes we would 🙂
This is such a fabulous list! I would want ALL of these characters as my family members too. Imagine having Katniss as your big sister…that would be seriously badass! I would insist that she teach me how to shoot a bow and arrow, haha.
Thanks! Yes it would be awesome to have these guys as your family members. Having Katniss as your big sister would be the best thing ever. Yup, maybe if I learned from Katniss I might finally be able to do it!
Yes to pretty much everyone here, especially the Weasley family!
Lauren @ Always Me
Yup the Weasleys are awesome!
The Weasleys would make such a great, supportive family! I love Mrs. Weasley so much. 💕
Yes they would make a great family! Mrs Weasley is the best.
I would freak out if Aelin was my sister! I wouldn’t just stay at home while she fought though, I would be fighting by her side! Great list! 🙂
Obviously, I would want to go on all her crazy adventures with her. It would be so much fun!
The Weasleys! Best family ever! And oh yes, Katniss would make such an awesome big sister 🙂 Great list!
They really are! Yes she would. Thanks 🙂
I don’t know all of these but the ones I do know wold inded make the best family ever. Some authors are just really great at portraying that family-you-choose vibe and you’ve included a lot of them on here!
Yes there are some authors who are just great at doing the whole friends as family vibe!
I’d adopt a lot of these in a heartbeat, but especially the Weasleys, because they really understand what family means.
Yes, the Weasleys are the best!
The Weasleys would be great family members! As would Aelin and Karbids
Yes they totally would be!
Katniss and Hans are great!
I think so too!
Great topic, Belle is a great choice and Aelin and Katniss also. The other ones I don’t know as well, although they sound good too. Magnus too!
I love your topic! I’d definitely want Belle and Katniss in my family as well. Good luck on your essays!
Thanks! Yes it would be awesome to be related to them. Thank you 🙂
Good posts, beautiful blog.
Welcome to see my creations:
I would also love to be in the Weasley family 😀
I’d love to have Belle as sister or friend. 🙂
Yup it would be awesome!
I love your take on this weeks topic and I definitely would love to have the ladies of 300 Fox Way in my family. I’ve still not read the Potter books but I can definitely see the Weasley household being warm and welcoming. Good luck with the essays. 😀
Thanks! Yes they would be awesome right? Oh you definitely should try the Harry Potter books, the Weasleys (and all the other characters) are awesome. Thanks 🙂
The Weasleys ❤ You are right, all of them would be fantastic namesakes because they are all wonderful people 🙂 And Belle ❤ Beauty & the Beast is my favorite fairy tale 🙂
Yup they are wonderful people. Same here 🙂
That is a great list- not only the Weasleys but also the women of 300 Fox Way 🙂
I love the Weasleys! They were my number one choice for this very topic a few weeks ago! 🙂
They’re the best aren’t they?
oh yes! 🙂
Great picks! The Weasley’s are definitely too perfect as a whole to pick any out of, really (though if I had to Id pick Ron), how amazing would it be to have them as family! Belle as a sister would be amazing! We’d certainly be book buddies 😝
Thanks! It would be awesome to have the Weasleys as family. Yes it would be! Imagine all the book chats you could have.
I love your spin on this topic. Also YESSSSS to Hans Hubermann. ❤ ❤ ❤
Hi! The Weasleys would be so fun! 🙂
Yes they would be!
Great picks for this week, so many of these are characters I would LOVE to have a family members. Especially any member of the Weasley family and Hans Hubermann as well (I can’t believe I missed those characters of my TTT for this week!)
Thanks! Yes those guys would be awesome 🙂
I love this! I always thought that Sirius Black could have made an awesome family member 🙂
Thanks! Yes he would 🙂
I did a similar topic in the past and I must agree, the Weasleys would be an awesome family to have. And I’d be thrilled about living at 300 Fox Way.
Yes they would be! Same here 🙂
Katniss would definitely be an amazing sister and I’m with you on the Weasley’s! Great picks. 😊
The Weasleys and Sirius Black would be amazing to have in the family!
Yes they would be!
Ah such a great topic! I would definitely also love to be a part of the Weasley family, or be a part of the 300 Fox Way family, or have Aelin as a big sister… Ah, the list goes on and on 😉
Thanks! Yeah I know, these are just a few of the families I’d like to be part of, there are more!
I love your topic! I would love to have the Weasley’s, Katniss, and Sirius as family members. Great list!
I adore your choice of topic! Definitely would love the Weasleys as family members, as well Hans Hubermann 🙂
Thanks! Yes they would be awesome family members 🙂
Aaah Magnus does have a big heart. 🙂
Yes he does 🙂
I love the spin you put on this week’s topic. I’d love to have all of them as family member’s as well 🙂
I would LOVE to be a part of the Weasley family, they are my dream family. Big. Loving. Quirky<3 And I would take Belle as a sister, because I could borrow all her books. And we would all live across from 300 Fox Way to keep life interesting 🙂 LOL I love this topic!
Yes they are awesome!
I would totally be sisters with Belle! Then we could read and discuss books ALL the time. It would be a dream come true.
Yes it would be awesome!
Yay for Belle! I love your take on this topic!
Tracy @ Cornerfolds
Sirius and Aelin are on my list too! I love those names and would love to use them one day.
Yes they are great names!
I haven’t continued reading Throne of Glass, but I love the name Aelin! I guess at this point if I do get ANOTHER cat, I should name her Katniss because my other cat is named Primrose haha.
Yes it is a great name. Yes you should, that would be awesome!
