Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s topic is all about fictional characters who would make great leaders. I’m putting a little twist on the topic and changing it to characters who would be great social media trendsetters. If these characters would be on social media, I’m pretty sure they would quickly amass quite a following in their particular niche. So here they go:

Cress by Marissa Meyer Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Cress from The Lunar Chronicles

Computer science blogger and Youtube tutorial maker. When it comes to computers, Cress is our go-to-woman. From the little computer queries to the more complicated, almost-illegal-but-not, she’d have us covered. Plus could you imagine little guest posts by Thorne?

Warner from the Shatter Me series

Fashion instagrammer. With his sense of style, Warner’s instagram would be on fire. In between all those fashion pictures would be some puppies here and there, which would only broaden his appeal

Katniss from The Hunger Games

Hunting and survival blogger.  This speaks for itself, doesn’t it? When it comes to survival skills, Katniss would be the best to teach us all.

To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han the-gentlemans-guide-to-vice-and-virtue-by-mackenzi-lee Wanderlost by Jen Malone

Lara Jean from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

Cooking & Baking vlogger. I’m already mouth-watering just thinking about the cooking and baking videos Lara Jean could make.

Monty from The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue

Youtube vlogger. Could there be a more hilarious vlogger than Monty? I’d watch his videos just to hear his little insights and perspective on things and his humor. Can you imagine how hilarious his follow-me-around vlogs would be?

Aubree from Wanderlost

Travel blogger. Just as reading this book made me feel all the wanderlust, I’m sure reading Aubree’s travel blog posts and watching her pictures of the places she visited would do the same!

Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer & Doug Holgate Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Iko from The Lunar Chronicles

Fashion and lifestyle vlogger. While Warner would have the serious (and gorgeous) side of fashion covered, Iko would be the hilarious and fun fashion blogger that you wish could be your best friend so you could get her personal fun fashion and life-related advice daily.

Sturmhund from the Grisha trilogy

Inventions and engineering web series. Sturmhund would be the perfect person to make science  and engineering super fun and attractive. I’m thinking he would be the perfect host for a show like Mythbusters, one that’s both funny and educational.

Dorian from Throne of Glass

Book blogger. If there’s any fellow book blogger out there in the fictional world, it would be Dorian, right? Plus, there would also be puppies, which would make his blog all the more attractive. I’d be a subscriber, that’s for sure!



  1. Lindsey, this topic is WAY fun!! I love the spin you put on this week’s list. I had lots of trouble coming up with characters to fit certain “jobs” or titles, etc., but this spin is fabulous. Well done!

    As is the usual, I haven’t met any of these characters, but what I do know of them (Lara Jean, in particular), it sounds like you’ve paired excellent social media themes with their characters! So fun. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Rissi! It was a tricky topic for sure, one of the hardest ones in a while!
      I really wish Lara Jean actually was a real food blogger! But alas, we’ll just need to read the books and use our imagination 🙂

  2. LOVE this concept!! And I would TOTALLY follow whatever Lara Jean put out. Baking, Fashion, Letters to Boys– whatever she wanted to share, I’m IN!!

    1. You’re so right! It doesn’t have to be just food, Lara Jean would be a joy to subscribe to, no matter what she chose to vlog about 🙂

  3. Oh I LOVE your tweak on this week’s topic, Lindsey! I put a similar spin on my list this week and went with fashion trendsetters. But this post is so fun and it’s a great list. I can totally see Lara Jean as a food vlogger! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much! Oh fashion trendsetters sounds so much fun as well!
      I really wish Lara Jean actually was a real food blogger! But alas, we’ll just need to read the books and use our imagination ?

  4. I would totally read a survival blog by Katniss. She would have the best tips!

    1. Definitely! I always wanted to learn more and she’d be the best teacher.

  5. OOh such a cool topic and I love your choices!!! I never would have thought of Monty as a vlogger but now that I think about it, I could totally see it!!!

    1. Monty would be such a fun vlogger, I really wish I could subscribe to his vlog 🙂 but guess we’ll just have to (re)read the book!

  6. I LOVE you twist on this topic. Social media! I’ve got one such on my list, but never thought of the whole topic. Brilliant! And great choices, too.

    1. Thanks so much! I thought it was quite the difficult topic this week, so glad to hear you liked this list 🙂

  7. Oh I love this twist on the topic! When I saw your title I immediately thought of Iko 😀 And Monty would be a great vlogger!

    1. Thanks! Iko would be soo much fun to subscribe to! I’d be addicted to her vlogs 🙂 And Monty’s too! Makes me wish they really had a vlog 🙂

  8. Oh this is such an amazing take for this week’s topic, I LOVE IT SO MUCH and all of these characters and their little trends are just ON POINT. I could totally see Cress doing computer science blogging, Warner would be especially awesome as a fashion instagrammer, and most of it all. LARA JEAN AS A FOOD BLOGGER, that would be like, A DREAM come true, for all of us to discover her amazing recipes ahah 😛
    GREAT post! 😀

    1. Haha yeah, writing this post just made me really, really wish these characters were actual real-life bloggers/vloggers. I’d LOVE to discover Lara Jean’s recipes, Jenny Han should have included them in the books, haha 🙂

  9. Cool tag, and great choices!

    1. Thanks so much! 🙂

  10. I love your spin on the topic. I’d read/watch any of these blogs!

    1. Thanks! I’d totally be a loyal follower as well 🙂

  11. I confess I’ve only read The Hunger Games of the books you listed so I mostly can’t opine (except, of course, how right you are about Katniss), but I looooooove the way you took this!

    1. Thanks so much 🙂

  12. Dorian would be the perfect book blogger!

    1. He’d totally fit right in with all of us 🙂

  13. Fantastic twist on the topic! Warner and fashion. That made me smile. LJ would be an awesome baking vlogger. I love all the baking that girl does in those books. Dorian was quite a reader. I forgot about that.

    1. Thanks! I just can’t get the image of Warner as a fashion instagrammer out of my head, it’s crazy 🙂

  14. And now I want all these characters to be on social media. Great post.

    Have a wonderful week.

    1. Haha, yeah I felt the same way 🙂 Thanks!

  15. Ha this one is awesome! Love what you did with this. Katniss’ blog would be awesome, and since I like travel vlogs sometimes I would probably go for Monty and Aubree as well. 🙂

    1. Thanks! I’d for sure follow them as well, they’d be awesome vloggers/bloggers!

  16. This is such a cool topic! And I honestly agree with all of them. ESPECIALLY Dorian. I think he would make an excellent, excellent book blogger (and Celaena/Aelin probably, too.) I would 100% be following Warner’s Insta! (speaking of… I’m SO excited for RESTORE ME!)

    1. Yes, Celaena would make a great book blogger too! And, YAY for Restore Me! I’m so excited too, and urgently need to re-read the Shatter Me trilogy in preparation 🙂

  17. This is very orginal and I love your answers. I would for sure read Katniss blog. How cool would that be?

    1. Thanks so much! Yeah Katniss would be such a cool blogger!

  18. Sturmhond would be amazing at social media in general… probably a YouTube star too haha.

    Great post, thanks for sharing!
    ~Brittany @ Brittany’s Book Rambles

    1. Haha yeah, he’d totally be oozing that social media charisma 🙂

  19. I love this post! How creative… 🙂

    1. Thanks so much 🙂

  20. You win the award for best twist on this week’s topic! This is so much fun. Just thinking about Monty as a YouTube Vlogger is cracking me up, haha!

    1. Oh thanks so much! Haha, I would LOVE Monty to be an actual real life Youtube vlogger, he’d be hilarious 🙂

  21. Loved the concept! Imagine how many followers they each would have! They would do so incredibly well! They’re walking advertisements for their blogs! I would definitely follow all of them!

    Great post!

    1. Haha yeah, they would be social media superstars! I know I’d follow them all as well 🙂

  22. YES, YES, YES. I completely agree with all these options – you are so spot-on with all of them. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous post! <3

    1. Thanks so much! I struggled a lot with this topic, so it’s nice to hear that they are spot-on 🙂

  23. I haven’t read any of these but I love the topic twist and now I’m more curious about some of these books!

    1. Thanks so much 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy these if you choose to pick them up!

  24. So great choices. I wonder if Katniss’s blog would turn into a political one? LOL I like the different take on these characters.

    1. That’s such a great point! I definitely think Katniss would slip some political topics in there 🙂

  25. This is such a cool idea for a list 🙂 it’s really too bad that I haven’t read any of these and don’t know the characters that I could relate xD but a brilliant idea!

    1. Thanks so much! 🙂
