characters we love

this is part of the fun meme TGIF: hosted by Ginger at GReads! (which is a pretty great blog, if i do say so myself). each friday she hosts a question that the literary lovers in the world can ponder.  this week, the lovely Ginger asks:


Characters We Love: Which male and/or female character have you found yourself connected to most?

literary lady bestie: Sookie Stackhouse. i KNOW she isn't young adult, but she is pretty awesome. i'd totally try and hide my thoughts and control my flow of consciousness so she wasn't overwhelmed with me being in her head all the time. plus, whenever i read one of the Sookie Stackhouse books, i feel like we're having a sleepover and she's dishing her latest adventure in the paranormal romance world. she's clever, funny, sweet, southern, and a perfect blend of tom-boy and girlishness that i adore. 


bookish boy bestie: Quentin from Paper Towns. what can i say, John Green knows the exact boy i adore! Quentin is totally unabashed about who he is. which, quite frankly, i appreciate more and more as i grow older.  when people are just who they are all the time, without apology, i find i respect that so very much. and Q, though he's still trying to figure it all out, can't help but be himself. i love that. he's also the loveliest blend of nerd, potty-humor, thoughtfulness and sensitivity that i can possibly imagine. the only dudes cooler than Q might be his friends...but if i were besties with Q, i'd be besties with his besties too! and we could spend total Saturdays playing video games and skipping band practice.


runner up: at a VERY CLOSE second is Todd from the Chaos Walking books. i LOVE Todd so very, very much, but i'm not sure i could handle the intensity of being his best friend. i'd be willing to give it a try, but it woudn't be nearly as fun as geeking out over video games with Q.



i look forward to seeing YOUR responses over at GReads! 



Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.

  1. I read the first book in the Sookie Series. For some reason I cannot define has kept me from going back to this series. I know I should think about getting the rest of the books.

    Sadly, the other books I have not read yet.
