Top Ten Tuesday #179


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:

  1. 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!

      Thanks! Oh I’ve never read I Capture The Castle, sounds good though 🙂

  1. kozbisa 02/10/2018 / 10:18 am

    Aelin, Percy, Nina, the Raven Boys and Blue would all be amazing to meet. Aelin might be a little scary though.

    • iloveheartlandx 03/10/2018 / 9:12 pm

      They would be! Ha ha yeah, I think I’d bring some chocolate to placate her first.

  2. Alyssa 02/10/2018 / 6:23 pm

    I would LOVE to meet Hermione and the Weasleys. That’d be so much fun.

  3. Rissi 02/10/2018 / 7:36 pm

    Fun spin on the topic! I don’t think I know any of these characters, but judging from the trailers for Percy Jackson, I’d imagine he’d be fun to meet – and I think I have the film, so I should watch it someday. 😀 Happy Top Ten Tuesday!!

    • iloveheartlandx 03/10/2018 / 9:09 pm

      Thanks! Yes he would be-the film is nothing compared to the books though!

  4. foreverlostinlit 02/10/2018 / 10:46 pm

    I like your twist on the topic! I would also like to meet pretty much all of these! Hermione in particular would be awesome. Great list!

  5. Greg 03/10/2018 / 1:48 am

    Ooh this is a fun take. So many Harry Potter characters would be awesome to meet! And Aelin, and Percy… some great picks here!

  6. abookandacup 04/10/2018 / 7:35 pm

    I love how you twisted this top 10! So many characters I would love to meet too!

    • iloveheartlandx 06/10/2018 / 12:28 pm

      Thanks! Yeah, this isn’t even half of the characters I’d love to meet 🙂

  7. Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense 05/10/2018 / 2:26 am

    Love this so much! I’d love to meet Lila as well, but would definitely keep up my guard. You never know with her.

  8. Mara 05/10/2018 / 1:20 pm

    Omg if I did this week’s prompt like you did my whole list would just be an ode to Rick Riordan’s characters! I would absolutely love to just hang out at Camp Half-Blood with the whole gang from Heroes of Olympus. Minus Jason and Piper, of course. I’m so glad to see I’m not the only one who secretly hates on those two haha

    • iloveheartlandx 06/10/2018 / 12:26 pm

      I mean I would totally do that as well, but figured there should probably be some variety in there! Ha ha no definitely not, I think there’s a large portion of the fandom who not so secretly hates on those two.

  9. Heather Cilley 05/10/2018 / 4:31 pm

    Ooooh Lila Bard would be so cool. I’d love to meet Kell!! 🙂 Awesome list!

    • iloveheartlandx 06/10/2018 / 12:25 pm

      She would be! Me too, to be honest, I’d love to hang out with the whole Shades of Magic gang. Thank you 🙂

  10. Amanda McGill 06/10/2018 / 1:41 am

    Great list! I love how you put your own spin on the topic!

    • iloveheartlandx 06/10/2018 / 12:21 pm

      Thank you! I’ve done authors I’d like to meet a few times before, so I wanted to try something different 🙂

  11. ChrissiReads 06/10/2018 / 11:07 am

    I would like to meet quite a few of these characters too! Wonderful list. 🙂

  12. Sammie @ The Writerly Way 06/10/2018 / 3:21 pm

    Oh, I love your spin on this week’s prompt! I haven’t read a lot of these books, so I don’t know the characters, unfortunately. I would LOVE to meet the Weasley twins, too, though. Obviously. xD Who wouldn’t? It probably sounds really weird, but I would LOVE to meet Wolf Larsen from The Sea Wolf, as that was pretty much my first literary crush I remember (except for Ax and Tobias from Animorphs, but meeting them would require the Yeerks to be real, and that’s gonna be a hard pass from me, thanks lol),

    • iloveheartlandx 07/10/2018 / 12:12 pm

      Thanks! Ah that’s a shame, would definitely recommend all of them, they’re great books. Yes, the Weasley twins would be so much fun to hanf out with. I actually haven’t read The Sea Wolf, but sounds good!

  13. thebookishlibra 06/10/2018 / 9:43 pm

    Great list. Lila Bard would definitely be at the top of my list too 🙂

    • iloveheartlandx 07/10/2018 / 12:11 pm

      Thanks! Yes, she would be so much fun to hang out with.

  14. Brooke Lorren (@Brookelorren) 09/10/2018 / 5:46 am

    I like your take on this weeks theme. Aelin would definitely love shopping and eating chocolate!

    Who would I like to meet? Maybe Day and June from Legend, Lazlo and Sarai from Strange the Dreamer, Clary and Jace from The Mortal Instruments. I’d probably want to meet Magiano from The Young Elites (he seems a little like my husband) but I don’t really know if I’d want to meet Adelina… she seems a little bitchy… unless she radically changed after what happened at the end of that series.

    • iloveheartlandx 10/10/2018 / 9:06 am

      Thanks! Yeah I think we’d have a great time. I actually haven’t read any of those books, though I really want to read Strange The Dreamer, it sounds so good and my friend loved it.

  15. Annemieke 09/10/2018 / 12:39 pm

    I am all aboard for your numbers 8, 9 and 10. That would be epic and so much fun. 😀

  16. Kathy @ Books & Munches 11/10/2018 / 2:01 pm

    Fred & George for sure! I’d love to hang out with those two, if only for a two hours, and be part of all the mischief they cause, haha.
