Top Ten Tuesdays- Favorite Female Characters I want to hang out with


Hello! Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday. This weekly meme is hosted by Jana @http://www.thatartsyreadergirl.com/. The purpose of this meme is to write a list based on a prompt for that week. Our prompt for this week is a character freebie. I am going to be honest that this list started off as my favorite characters. Upon thought I wanted to do something more creative and so this is female characters I want to hang out with. I realize some of these are classics, but I have a plan for those. I mean all but one of these to take place in Modern Day 2019.

1- Cather Avery from Fangirl

I am sure you’re all shocked to see her on this list, just kidding. Anyway, I love Cath so much and I really have a connection to Cath as a character. Cath and I would go to the library and just chat. Cath and I both have a love of fandom and both write fan fics. I have never been to Nebraska, so I think it would be fun to just hang out in her hometown, and she could tell me all the cool places. I believe this will be such a fun day and it sounds perfect.

2- Anastasia Romanov from Romanov

Nastya is also such an awesome bad ass character that I love so much. This is an Anastasia retelling, and it was everything. If Nastya lived in modern day, I would love to hang out with her and talk about books and magic. In this retelling, Nastya is a spell caster in training and she helps her brother. I would just like to ask her about magic and ask her about her family as Nastya loves her family. I would like to hang out with her in Russia because I am of Russian heritage, but I have never been there, and I think it would be so much fun to explore Russia with her.

3- Miriam Hendrix from Comics Will Break Your Heart

Mir is such a fun nerdy character and I have so much love for her. I’m a fan of comics, however; I have never read a comic book as I know the world is vast and deep in comics. I enjoy a great graphic novel and so I can relate to her on that aspect. Miriam is an introvert as I am so the two of us would just hang out and talk about books. Canada is a place I’ve always wanted to see, so we could just hang out and walk around Canada as well.

4- Imogen “Mo” Lovelace from The Princess and the Fangirl

Imogen is a fantastic character and truly one of my new faves. She is one of the main characters in The Princess and the Fangirl and she is everything! Mo and I both have a love of books and all things geek culture. Another thing about both of us is that we both have a love for our fandoms. I would want to hang out with her at the con talked about her her book, as I believe we would have so much fun at a con. Mo loves Star Field and I think the show and the fandom is based off Star Trek or Star Wars, and I adore Star Wars.

5- Felicity Montague from The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy

Felicity is another bad ass that I love so much. In her novels, she is trying to defy the world she lives in and be the kind of person she wants to be for her and nobody else. I see those qualities in myself but I’m a little less bold than Felicity is. Her stories take place in Europe and I would love to hang out with her in Paris. I also have some French heritage, so there is the personal connection to France for me. Our day would just be exploring Paris and talking about books we enjoy.

6- Hodel from After Anatevka

I needed to include a character who is also known as a musical theater character on this list. I’ve spoken about this book a lot as it is one of my favorite Historical Fiction novels. Hodel is another character who lives her life for her, and I just adore this quality about her. In her story Hodel lives in Russia, however; I would bring her to New York City as I feel she would enjoy the big city. Both of us have a love of family, and a love of books. Our day would just be exploring New York City and seeing a Broadway show or two.

7- Lizzie Bennett from Pride & Prejudice

No list would be complete without Lizzie. She is a firecracker and I love her for that. We both have a love of books, and I put her on my INFJ characters I relate to. Lizzie and I would spend the day in the English Countryside. I have always wanted to see the English Countryside, and I have only been to London once, which was for a very short trip. We would spend our day drinking tea and talking about books.

8- Natasha “Tash” Zelenka from Tash Hearts Tolstoy

An underrated character from an underrated book that I never see talked about! I love Tash because she is so sweet yet goes after what she wants. As a side note, Tash is Ace, and it is a big part of her story, but it wasn’t her whole story. I am a fan of Tolstoy and web series, even though I am still in the middle of War & Peace. As I was reading this book a few years ago, I couldn’t help but relate to Tash. While I don’t remember where this book takes place, I want to spend the day with Tash in Chicago, as I feel like would like a big city, however; I’m not sure she would jive with the hugeness of New York City. The airport in Chicago is the only place I’ve been, and I want to talk with her about books and adaptions. Also, we would probably see a show.

9- Feyre from A Court of Thorns and Roses series

My favorite Fantasy girl needed to be included here. This is also the only one which wouldn’t be in 2019, but in her world in the time she lives in. Feyre is another firecracker and the complete opposite of me. My day with Feyre would be meeting her friends and going around to all the courts.

10- Jane from Jane Eyre

I’ve spoken about my love for Jane on this blog time and time again. Jane lives in England but I would bring her to New Jersey, the Jersey Shore to be exact. If I’m bringing any of the characters to the beach, it’s Jane as I think we would have a fun time reading on the beach, having dinner on the boardwalk, and going on rides. For those familiar with the Jersey Shore, I go to Ocean City a lot which is where I would take Jane, as it’s still fun but less wild than Wild Wood.

  1. Hey Steph! I really like the details of your ideal day out with them, and also the theme is just a really great and creative method! Well done!

  2. Cath is such a great character and I think a lot of people can relate to her- starting college or university, loves fandoms, socially anxious, etc. So many relatable things haha! I also liked her relationship with Reagan, since they were so opposite- another thing that happens in college sometimes!

  3. Ooh nice picks! Gotta admit, lots of new to me characters here! Except for Feyre...and Romanov is in my TBR pile, so I won't be a stranger to that one forever! Lol.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT post!

  4. Ooh, I'd love to hang out with Nastya also! Felicity and Feyre would also be really neat people to meet as well. Nice list!

  5. I went to college at the University of Nebraska (in Lincoln) and lived in Cather Hall for two years. In fact, Avery is also a building on campus. Rowell gives her characters such obnoxious names, after cities and people from here. No worries, Lincoln is not that great so you are not missing out on much!

    You've got a great mix of characters here, I really like your list!

Top Ten Tuesday –Favorite Couples (Valentine’s Day /Love Freebie)

  Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana @ thatartsyreadergirl. . This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. I love doing this meme because it gives me a chance to bond with other bloggers. Every week, Jana will post a topic, and we bloggers will make a post with our list on the topic, or a different one. This week it was Valentines / Love, so I wanted to do a post on favorite couples. I may have done a similar post last year, but I know that there are some new couples on this list.  1- Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy- Pride & Prejudice   This is the only classic couple on this list. I enjoy their relationship because the two characters have little in common, and yet by the end of the novel, they make it work. As you read Pride & Prejudice, you get to see these two find the love each of them was missing. 2- Cath and Levi–Fangirl One of my favorite YA novels needed to appear on this list. I love Cath and Levi because they balanc

Can't Wait Wednesday -Confessions of a Curious Bookseller

 Hi! Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa  @wishfulendings . This meme is an offshoot of Waiting on Wednesday, which was hosted by  Jill@breakingthespine . The purpose of the meme is to feature books, usually unpublished, that we can't wait to read. This week, I'm featuring Confessions of a Curious Bookseller by Elizabeth Green. All information comes from GoodReads.  Title: Confessions of a Curious Bookseller Author: Elizabeth Green Genre: Adult Contemporary Expected Publication: January 1st, 2021  Add to Goodreads:  Here Goodreads Summary A heartening and uproariously funny novel of high hopes, bad choices, book love, and one woman’s best—and worst—intentions. Without question, Fawn Birchill knows that her used bookstore is the heart of West Philadelphia, a cornerstone of culture for a community that, for the past twenty years, has found the quirkiness absolutely charming. When an amicable young indie bookseller invades her block, Fawn is convinced that his cushy couch

Top Ten Tuesday-Books I want to reread

Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by  Jana@thatartsyreadergirl . This meme was born out of a love of lists and brings the book blogging community together. Each week Jana posts a topic, and we book bloggers write a response. This week, it's books I want to reread.  1- Pride & Prejudice   This is a classic I’ve read twice, I think? At least once, anyway, I love this novel so much. My favorite character in the book is Lizzie. I also miss the story. Maybe in 2021? Anyway, I miss this book and I want to reread it. 2- Foolish Hearts   I read this book in the summer of 2019. I had been in a bit of a slump at the time, so this pulled me out of it. I read the novel in about two weeks, and I just loved it so much. My favorite character is Claudia, and I want to revisit the book. That this involves theatre is another reason I need to reread this book ASAP. 3- After Anatevka   I know I talk about this book so much on the blog. I read this a few years ago now, and I want to revisit the charact
