Top Ten Characters Who Would Be My BFF

I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's prompt is:

Top Ten Characters Who Would Be My BFF

This doesn't include all my favorite characters, rather characters I would be friends with.  Because, claro, I love reading about The Darkling, but would like our relationship to continue to be STRICTLY FICTIONAL.  The rest I'd be happy to know in read life:

10. Liv and Roar from the Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi
Because I just love how brave and determined and passionate they are. *sob*

9. Tyrion Lannister from the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin
Because of his sharp wit and affinity for books.
(But he would have to come live in my world, because there ain't no way I'm moving to Westeros.)

8. Cather Avery from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I am convinced that we are actually the same person.

7. Matilda Wormwood from Matilda by Roald Dahl
Because she is smart and kind and bookish.  Also, telekinetic.

Because befriending an extremely powerful wizard/jedi master is never a bad idea.

5. Jane Hayes from Austenland by Shannon Hale
Because we bookish obsessive girls need to look out for each other.

4. Zoe Ardelay from the Elemental Blessings series by Sharon Shinn
Because Zoe is DA BOMB.  (Have you read Troubled Waters yet?!?)

3. Belle from Beauty and the Beast by Disney

2. Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Lizzy Bennett is the coolest girl of her generation.  Also, I would get to meet Darcy.

1.  Fred and George Weasley from the Harry Potter series.
Because, hello, they're Fred and George Weasley.

What about you?


  1. Frankie Landau-Banks from "The Disreputable History of..." She's just subversive enough for us to do some serious damage together.

    Also Edna Adan from "Half the Sky." I realize she's not fictional, but I'm pretty sure she and I could be BFFs, what with the maternal health passion and whatnot. I often dream of living in Somaliland and working in her clinic.

    I also quite like Flavia de Luce from the Alan Bradley books, but I think we would've been BFFs back when I was 12... and at my current age, she would probably just annoy me to death. I canNOT spend much time with young teenagers without my brain melting. I wish I could, but... I can't.

    1. HOW COULD I FORGET EDNA ADAN??!?! I don't care that she's not fictional, she's the BOMB.

      Flavia is also a great choice, though I agree that I would have loved her more as a fellow 12-year-old.

      I haven't read about Frankie Landau-Banks yet, but she's on my list!

  2. Not fictional, but I always feel like I would have been friends with Nora Ephron. Have you ever read any of her essays? I like her. A lot

    1. I haven't read her yet! I'll def have to add her to my list.
