Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s all about book besties. As in, which fictional character would I love to have as a best friend in my life? And argh, this was actually quite difficult, because as much as I love friendships in books, I always tend to love them in groups. I love the friendships themselves and I just want in on that. But this time I thought about some singular characters I really want as my best friend, and I succeeded (mostly):
Alice from Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann
Alice screamed BFF-material to me. She’s so much fun and loves her pop culture so I can definitely see myself having a ton of fun with her.
Simon and Leah from Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda/ Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
While I was reading Simon vs, I fell completely in love with the friendships in it, especially between Simon and Leah. I think it’s because they both reminded me a lot of myself when I was in highschool. I know I would have gotten along so well with these two in my highschool days, as well as today!
Frances and Aled from Radio Silence by Alice Oseman
They may be a two-for-one deal since they’re already eachother’s best friend, but I want in. They are both so incredibly smart and creative and I just need to be their friend and be inspired by their awesomeness. Plus, they are both so THERE for eachother and aww I’m in a puddle on the floor because I love me some epic friendships.
Mia from Fake It Till You Break It by Jenn P. Nguyen
I want a bestie I can share my kdrama obsession with. Mia seems just as addicted as me, so we’d be able to talk all about kdramas and Lee Jong Suk together.
Elle from Geekerella by Ashley Poston
Elle is not only the perfect amount of geeky, she’s also kind, creative and hardworking and I admire her a lot. I’d love to have her as a bestie so we could geek out and go to cons together, but perhaps even talk blog stuff!
Samwise Gamgee from The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
Is there anybody out there who’d be a more loyal friend than Samwise the Brave? I’d be honored to have him as my best friend. Plus, I may get some gardening tips, which -let’s face it- I could really use.
Julian from The Dark Artifices trilogy by Cassandra Clare
I know Julian is verry busy with shadowhunting duties, Emma and his family, but surely there’s room for a new BFF in his life too? Julian is just such a nice, caring, lovable character, who can also be incredibly fierce and ruthless when it comes to protecting his family, and those all just seem like such amazing best friend qualities. Plus, I could join in on those pancake breakfasts, right? Right?
Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Not only do I think Cath and I would understand eachother’s anxieties perfectly, we’d also both be able to fangirl about beloved fictional characters. Perhaps she could even help me navigate the wonderful world of fanfiction, because it’s been too long since I read a really good one.
Nina from The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abby Waxman
Obviously Nina and I could talk books all day long, but since I’m constantly trying to get more organised, Nina could also teach me all her planning and organisational tricks. I could hang out with her cat, Phil, and maybe even join in on her quiz-team fun?
Lara Jean from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
I think I’d get along great with Lara Jean. We’re both introverted homebodies who are hopeless romantics. We can hold movie marathons and bake things together (or since I’m not much of a baker, I’d be her taste-tester at least.)
Leo from The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan
Leo is kind of like the funny best friend. But he’s so much more than just the funny best friend. He’s smart and loyal and sassy and brave and caring and he deserves so much and I’LL JUST BE HIS BEST FRIEND, OKAY?
