Every week the That Artsy Reader Girl blog has a Top Ten Tuesday topic for fellow book bloggers to take inspiration from and post about. Since I am, obviously, new to book blogging, this is my very first Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) and I am pumped for this one. This week’s topic is characters from books that I would follow on social media.
This topic is a funny one because I don’t really use social media much at all. I have an instagram and a twitter, but I rarely post to either. For me, social media is a way of keeping up with friends and of also following fun people who I think share interesting content. But, also, don’t we all have people we follow on social media for petty purposes? That can’t be just me. There are some characters on this list for each of these groups of people I follow IRL.
- Francis Abernathy from The Secret History by Donna Tartt
Francis is most definitely my favorite characters from The Secret History, which is most definitely one of my favorite books of all time. He is stylish and and rich and super smart and, honestly, the best out of his friends. He would post amazing Instagram photos, I just know it.
2. Owen and Megan from Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberly and Austin Siegemund-Broka
Listen, Always Never Yours is one of my all-time favorite books, and it’s, arguably, a nearly perfect YA romance. I just know that these two would have amazing Instagrams and Facebooks where they post super cute couple photos and behind-the-scenes theater photos from their plays. Plus they would adorably comment cute banter on each other’s posts.
3. Lydia Bennet from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Is Lydia the worst Bennet sister? Maybe. Would she be the most fun to follow on Instagram? Absolutely. Can you imagine the petty things she would post? It would be amazing, and you know there would be controversy, and I want to be a fly on that proverbial wall.
4. Jessamine from The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare
Okay, so this is similar to #3, but Jessamine is just the best worst character ever. Her profiles would be filled with so many opulent things and would be so show-y of her wealth (and would have absolutely no Shadowhunter business), but I would still totally follow her to see all the snide remarks she makes. She is the worst and the most entertaining, and isn’t that what we all want from our social media feeds?
5. Magnus from (basically) all of the Shadowhunters series by Cassandra Clare
Can you imagine how many followers everyone’s favorite High Warlock would have? Can you imagine all the travel photos and party photos and photos of his adorable family? Ugh. This should be real.
6. Christopher from Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire
While not the fan favorite of the Wayward Children series, Christopher would -hands-down- be the best to follow on social media. He is super cool and likes super dark things and is in love with a Skeleton Girl. PLUS he has a flute made out of one of his own bones which has the coolest magical power. He would post about so many adventures and I would so follow him.
7. Puck from The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
I just want to follow Puck for all the horse pictures.
8. Peeta from The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins
I just want to follow Peeta for all the bread pictures.
9. Kira Bennett from The Lovely and the Lost by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
If you haven’t read The Lovely and the Lost, you’re missing out. The main character, Kira, helps raise rescue dogs. So many dogs and they’re all so adorable and well trained and, well, I just love dogs.
10. Theo Beck from A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird trilogy) by Claudia Gray
Oh, Theo. Theo is the suavest physics grad student in existence, and he is just so super cool and super smart and his Instagram would simultaneously be full of fun parties and cool inventions and different universes of our multiverse and, I’m guessing here, food photos from hip new cafe bistros.
Okay, so I feel like I just rambled about characters I really like and definitely talked about them like they’re real people, but, yeah, this is my list of book characters I would follow on social media!
