Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
My list will be a small mix of characters and historical figures because let's face it, I do not read enough fiction to be able to come up with ten characters I would be interested in enough to
harass follow on social media.
Eleanor of Aquitaine
1124 - 1204
Queen of France and England
Obviously. I mean, I named my daughter after her. I would not be naming my only child after just anyone, and this bad-ass queen is special. Calling her the 'Grandmother of Europe' is not wrong. She was an intelligent, capable ruler, and had no qualms about getting shit done.
Bronwyn Rojas, Nate Macauley
One of Us is Lying, One of Us is Next
These two. Like, I feel like I am a young adult again when I read these books because I LOVE NATE AND BRONWYN SO MUCH AND THEY ARE THE BEST COUPLE EVER. I am not a young adult however, I am a late 30s adult. Even so, I love all these characters so much, but Nate and Bronwyn together, and Nate in particular because, of course. Although, let's be honest, Nate does not give a shit and would not even use social media.
Do I really need to list his works?
Oh, the puns! Oh, the innuendos! He would easily be my fave Twitter-follow ever. And he would have a field day with the political climate today.
Little Women, Little Men, Jo's Boys
From a young age, when I first read Little Women (around ten maybe?) I wanted to BE Jo March. I wanted to go off to a big city and write for a newspaper and write my books and live in a little apartment and it all sounded so wonderful. She also would have much to say about the current state of the US, I think.
