Top Ten Tuesday is featured by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s topic is : Characters from different books who should team up (or date, be friends etc).
I confess that when I saw the topic, I feared I would come up either with nothing, either with only well known characters (think Sarah J Maas main characters) pairing.
But as I began writing my reads in a reading journal this year for the first time, with notes and details, I found it super handy to remember character traits, professions etc of the characters I had read about, even side characters sometimes!
I was the first surprised as usually I forget everything about the characters and the story, except a general sense of the plot, once I have finished reading!
So let’s see who I would pair and why. Mostly, I went with characters who give a similar “vibe” and whom I think would make great friends if they ever met each other!
The first pairing is Iris from The Only Purple House in Town and Caydee from Hello Stranger. Both are artists and their lives is totally out of control at the beginning of their stories (think starving artits and a lot of debts).
Lakshmi (The Henna Artist), Nahri (The Daevabad Trilogy), and Yrene (Tower of Dawn) are strong, resilient women who are healers. They each have overcome challenges and found a new family by the end of their stories.
Joanna from Ink Blood Sister Scribe and Katrien from Sorcery of Thorns would make great friends. Both passionate with magic books, they love to experiment and know everything there is to know about these books.
The next paring is one with two irreverent ladies: Fizzy from The True Love Experiment and Nina Zenik from Six of Crows. Both are bubbly, love experimenting new things, taking risks and ruffling the feathers of handsome men. Both own their bodies and hold no shame about sex or nudity.
Violet Sorengail (Fourth Wing) and Harper (A Curse do Dark and Lonely) could compare notes! Both afflicted by a condition having their bodies give up on them at time, they raised to the challenge better than able bodied characters! They refuse to be defined by their illness and don’t allow their limitations to dictate their lives. Working twice as hard as the others, they achieved extraordinary things.
That’s it! What do you think of my pairings?
Thanks for reading!
