Top Ten Literary Characters I Want to Marry
OH GOD. This topic is like my personal nightmare. I’m a notoriously bad chooser. When given the choice between option A and option B I will invariably choose C: all of the above. When trying to decide between two desserts or two dresses or two boyfriends (kidding… ish) I always choose BOTH. My list of ten favorite books is a hundred titles long. So this is hard.
But Top Ten Tuesday is all about the Top Ten. So here goes.
|I casually own this Hogwarts trunk full of HP books btw.|
1. Harry Potter (they all count as one book okay leave me alone)
Because I could reread these all day, every day. Because I’d never get sick of them. Because there’s always something new to discover.
Sigh, I know I’m cheating. Then I would have to close my eyes and grab at random, hoping it was either Half-Blood Prince or Order of the Phoenix. Or maybe Deathly Hallows. Shoot.
2. How to Survive on a Deserted Island
Because that’s just common sense.
3. The Annotated Pride and Prejudice
Because I love it unconditionally and I am obsessed with the annotations. There are historical and literary insights GALORE.
4. Anna Karenina
It’s reaaaaaaally long. And I’ve never gotten through it before. I figure on a deserted island I’d finally find the time and necessary focus.
5. The Complete Works of Shakespeare
Also reaaaaaaally long. And I could finally freaking read the random ones like Cymbeline. Or Timon of Athens. I bet you didn’t even know that was a real thing.
|Picture me in a toga.|
Plus I could act them out if I got bored!
In case I need a really long cry and a good dose of history.
7. The Hunger Games (yes all three)
I could seriously pick up tips. I mean I’ll be totally prepared when the vicious razor-clawed monkeys attack. And having Katniss around would keep me fierce and goal-oriented. I’d never lose the fight to survive.
What's that? I'm still cheating? I guess I'll pick Catching Fire, then, for relevance.
|I also own this and it's gorgeous. It has gilded edges!|
8. The Annotated Grimm’s Fairy Tales
Because fairy tales are necessary for being. They teach you lightness and darkness, hope and despair, happy endings and unspeakable violence. Because they’re just freaking cool. And they have princesses.
9. The Collected Calvin and Hobbes (not technically a book, but there are words involved)
Because I’ll need something to make me laugh.
10. A blank notebook (pen included)
Because I’d go NUTS if I couldn’t write my own books while in total isolation.
A Little Princess
Alice in Wonderland
I Capture the Castle
The Phantom Tollbooth
Every book written by Neil Gaiman/Philip Pullman/Jane Austen
Every book I’ve ever liked
