Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Characters I'd Like to Be Best Friends With

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is Top Ten Characters I'd Like to Be Best Friends With:

10. Fred from The Ruby in the Smoke by Philip Pullman

9. Ramona from the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary

8. Mibs from Savvy by Ingrid Law

7. Sabriel from Sabriel by Garth Nix

6. Farhad from Tiger Moon by Antonia Michaelis

5. Elinor from Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

4. Sonny from Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston

3. Emily from Emily of New Moon by L. M. Montgomery

2. Cassandra from I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith

1. Gen from The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner


  1. Oh, Fred! What a great choice for a guy friend! And yay Elinor made your list too :D I considered Ramona but I'm not too sure how we'd get along now that I'm an adult LOL.

  2. I've always loved Henry more than Beezus or Ramona. Don't know why.


  3. I don't know many of those books, but I'm glad I took a look at your list!

  4. Fred from The Ruby in the Smoke was my first ever literary crush. I don't think I'm ever going to forget Philip Pullman for what he did to him! It's been, like, 14 years since I first read The Shadow of the North and I'm still all "aaaargh" every time I think about it. Sigh.
