Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a good week since I last did one of these, my Uni related stress meltdown has reached earlier than I was expecting, I have a lot of assignments due in the next few weeks, so yeah, the next few weeks aren’t going to be great work wise-please bear with me if I’m not around here as much, I will try and post as much as I can, but obviously work has to come first.
Anyway, I’m back today with another Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Today we’re meant to be talking about Authors We’d Love To Meet, but I’ve been luckily enough to meet a lot of my favourite authors over the last few years and my list hasn’t changed since I last did that topic, so instead, I’m going to be talking about Characters I’d Love To Meet:
- Lila Bard-Shades of Magic Trilogy-VE Schwab
I would love to meet Lila, we could go on her ship, she could teach me magic and pirating and all the different ways you can kill people with a knife and how to be as badass and confident as she is, we’d have a great time. Sure, I’d be worried she’d kill me at first, but I think once we got over that, we’d have a great time.
2. Hermione Granger-Harry Potter-JK Rowling
How much fun would Hermione and I have hanging out? I would happily listen to her talking about the history of magic and Hogwarts and all the other cool things she knows about and she could take me to the Hogwarts Library. We could go to Hogsmeade, and chat over books and hot chocolate (I hate butterbeer), it would be so great!
3. Aelin Galathynius-Throne of Glass series-Sarah J Maas
Much like Lila, Aelin could teach me loads of different ways to kill people-I could also learn some pretty useful self defence skills from her, which would be great. We could chat over books and chocolate, we could go shopping, I could play with Fleetfoot, it would be a great day for all!
4. Skulduggery Pleasant-Skulduggery Pleasant series-Derek Landy
Who doesn’t want to meet a magical skeleton detective? He taught Valkyrie magic, he could teach me! We could solve crime together, I could ride around in the Bentley and I could finally meet a nice Irish guy-though preferably one that’s alive!
5. Percy Jackson-Percy Jackson universe-Rick Riordan
In an ideal world, Percy would be single, my age, and well, real. But alas this is not the case. Still, if I was to meet him, I would love to hang out with him and Annabeth at Camp Half-Blood, doing all sorts of cool and dangerous stuff-I might avoid the lava climbing wall, but I’d be up for everything else.
6. Nina Zenik-Six of Crows duology-Leigh Bardugo
Because who wouldn’t want to hang out with a foodie? If Nina and I met, forget about exploring Ketterdam, we would spend our entire day just chatting over food, she would introduce me to the rest of The Dregs and sure, if they offered, which they wouldn’t, I’d happily go on a job with them.
7. Izzy O’Neill-The Exact Opposite of Okay-Laura Steven
I related so strongly to Izzy, so I have to think that if we hung out together we’d have an AWESOME time. We could chat all things Harry Potter (she would have to introduce me to her dachshund Dumbledore), we could have massive milkshakes and share a plate of nachos, and just spend the afternoon having fun, witty banter, it would be awesome.
8. Fred and George Weasley-Harry Potter-JK Rowling
How much fun would you have hanging out with the Weasley twins? I would love to just spend all day with them showing me all their different magical inventions and pranking people with them, maybe playing some quidditch (the real kind, not our strange approximation) and just having the best time.
9. The Gangsey-The Raven Cycle-Maggie Stiefvater
You cannot ask me to choose just one member of the Gangsey to meet, I would have to hang out with them all. I would love to hunt for dead welsh kings with them, and visit Blue’s family home and just soak up all the weirdness, maybe get my fortune told, it would be awesome.
10. Leo Valdez-Percy Jackson Universe-Rick Riordan
Honestly, I would love to hang out with all of Rick Riordan’s characters, minus Jason and Piper, but I think I could have a lot of fun with Leo. We’d probably spend the day hanging out in his workshop, just chatting away whilst he worked on something cool and of course he would have to take me for a ride on Festus (his dragon).
What characters would you love to meet? Would we share any? Let me know in the comments!
Next week’s topic is Longest Books I’ve Ever Read. Now I will admit that any book over 600 pages (heck really over 500 pages) fills me with dread, but I have read my fair share of hefty books over the years (and some I’ve even enjoyed) so this should be a fun one to do (who wants to be already that 99% of my list will be Sarah J Maas?). In the meantime, like I said at the top of the post, I’ll probably be bit less active on the blog whilst I have deadlines coming up, so if I don’t post anything before next Tuesday, then have a nice rest of your week!
