Top Ten Tuesday : Compelling Characters


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic is :

Characters I’d Follow On Social Media

This is a tricky one but I’ve tried to come up with a few characters and why I’d follow them.

  1. Vianne Rocher – because she makes the most marvelous chocolate creations and I like to torture myself by just imagining how good they all taste. Chocolat by Joanne Harris
  2. Molly Weasley – I like Molly, she’s a great mum and I’d like her advice from time to time I think.  Harry Potter by JK Rowlings
  3. Jean Tannen from The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch – yes, this was an obvious choice and one that needs no explanation.  Basically this is my book boyfriend.  I will fight everyone who disagrees.
  4. Professor Theo Cray from Andrew Mayne’s Naturalist series of books.  I just think he would be incredibly interesting because he is full of random information and facts.
  5. Dru – from the Dru Jasper series by Laurence MacNaughton.  Dru seems like somebody you could easily get to know.  She’s loyal and friendly and interesting.  Can we be friends pretty please???
  6. Miriam from Chuck Wendig’s Miriam Black series.  I know it’s not big and clever but she is wonderfully creative when it comes to cursing and she just makes me laugh.  I would follow her just to see what outrageous things she might say next.
  7. Ferius Parfax from Sebastien de Castell’s Spellslinger series.  The Argosi are so interesting, their philosophy and way of life.  I’d love to know more and to check out some of those amazing cards that she paints.
  8. Melisande from Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel series. She’s a baddie that you love to hate.  I would definitely follow her – it couldn’t hurt to try and figure out what cunning scheme she’s planning next.
  9. Lizzie Bennett – or one of the other sisters maybe.  All the latest gossip and what bonnets to wear.  Of course I don’t wear bonnets but still.  A little Jane Austen character catch up couldn’t hurt
  10. I’ve left No.10 blank for your suggestions please?

    Hahaha, I’m trying to picture Theo Cray on Twitter. I don’t think his character would use social media by choice, so it would have to be mandated by his job or something or he’d need to be told to do it. His account would be full of interesting facts for sure, but he’ll probably also inadvertently insult his followers every other day because of his social ineptitude 😀

      Oh yes, that’s what I was hoping for – entertainment value 😀

    Ooooh! Awesome theme. I am going to have to think about this one.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, do so, I’d love to see what you come up with – I actually found it pretty tough going.
      Lynn 😀

    Molly Weasley is a good one! Although she might be a little stern?😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      She was a little stern now you mention it – but I can handle it lol
      Lynn 😀

  5. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    While I’m not very keen on social media, I would follow Jean Tannen without hesitation: if you need help in defending him, just call me… 😀 😀

    Jean Tannen yes! I love him so much.
