Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on our post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. If you can't come up with ten, don't worry about it---post as many as you can!
This week's Top 10 is all about character's you'd want as family members so I'll try and pick at least one character per immediate family member but the rest I may just double up on!
1. Grandma Betty from Need by Carrie Jones
Awesome Grandma that proves that age doesn't mean you have to be old; kinda like my real grandma
2.Po from Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Po seems like a perfect older brother type because he's an all round great guy as well as brave and strong he'd laugh and play with the younger kids even if he's much older!
3. Carlisle Cullen from the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer
Ultimate dad figure really. He's smart, nice, funny, kind and understanding with his 'kids'. Plus a doctor on hand is always a good thing for me cause I'm very clumsy. I make Bella look graceful!
4. Mrs Weasley from the Harry Potter Series by J.K.Rowling
Best mum ever???? She feed you and all your friends, she'll protect her own and is a mum to everyone that needs it.
5.Clare from The Time Traveler's Wife
I don't have a sister but I'd imagine that if I had an old sister that Clare would be just like her in my head because she's quite cool but not pretentious, she's nice without being over the top and she's just a genuinely nice human being. You'd look up to her but she would probably give you her cool clothes hand-me-downs
6. Mae and Jamie in The Demons Lexicon series by Sarah Rees Brennan
I put these two together because they'd be great as cousins either together or individually because they are fun, quirky and are more like best friend's than just family members and that's how I'm like with my own cousins because we're sort of similar ages and interests
7.Judas Coyne from Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill
I kinda think he'd be an uncle that in his younger years was UBER cool legend and now is just a legend to those that know him well and is slightly odd but has a kinda parental vibe but not enough to really be a father because he's a bit too cool for that but wants to make sure no one gets hurt. Cool music taste and very much a laid back vibe about life. Enjoy everything but maybe a bit to much back in the day. Ha
8. Jody from Rock-oholic by C.J.Skuse
I think she'd be a little sister in my world because I can imagine she'd be a younger version of myself and I'd look at her and like picking on her but also be secretly proud at her musical taste and would give her my cool hand-me downs and CDs and mix tapes with bands she should hear and I'd probably be an older sister that she'd think was cool but didn't always like and was jealous of cause I was older and could go to all the gigs and things she couldn't because she didn't have the money or was grounded. :-)
9. Rabbit from the Wicked Lovely Series by Melissa Marr
Rabbit really starts to shine more in the 2nd book Ink Exchange and he's such an awesomely caring big brother and plus he does tattoo's so perhaps I could get a few freebies or family discounts! He protects his younger sisters and does whatever is needed even if it's not always things he'd naturally want to do. Tough exterior with a warm heart.
10. Alma from Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Alma would be that mother/grandmother figure in everyone's life that isn't a blood relative but takes in all that need her attention and feed them up, raise them and then ship them out into the world a few stone heavier and full of Southern manners.
