Top Ten Tuesday: Book Characters I'd Want As Family Members
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Broke and Bookish. This week's list is on the book characters I'd want as family members. Be sure to leave your links to your posts below, or if you don't want to make a post, tell me which characters you'd want as family members!
1. Husband - Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)
Did you see this one coming? I thought you might. I don't really need to explain myself with this one, as Dimitri is the obvious choice for a husband. He's a Guardian, he's 6 ft 7 (!!), he's strong, he's not afraid to show his feelings to those important to him, he's handsome, he has a light Russian accent, he's hot, he's loyal, he's mysterious... did I mention he's very good looking?
2. Cousin - Jace Wayland (Mortal Instruments)
I can imagine Jace as the hilarious cousin who entertains everyone at family get togethers. He'd be a great cousin, I'm sure.
3. Brother - Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries)
Call me crazy, but I think Damon would be a wonderful brother. TV Damon, anyway. He's so protective of Stefan, and although they don't always get along, he's always there for him when Stefan needs him.
4. Sister - Tris Prior (Divergent)
Without giving anything away, Tris is badass. I would love for her to be my sister for that reason alone, but she's also very loyal, strong, selfless (*wink*)... yeah!
5. Sister - Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)
Rose would be the perfect twin or older sister. She's also badass. She can fight, she's the most loyal book character I've ever read about, and although she does make some wrong decisions from time to time she tries to make up for them. It may be a little strange with my married to her former boyfriend, but I'm sure we can work around that small detail.
6. Grandad - Dumbledore! (HP)
Obvious choice here. I want Dumbledore to be my grandad - say no more.
7. Uncle - Snape! (HP)
I love, love, love Severus Snape so freakin' much. He's one of my favourite characters ever, and so it's only natural that I would want him as my uncle, right?
8. Auntie - Lily Evans/Potter (HP)
Snape <3 Lily forever! This was actually one of my first ever 'ships'. I love these two, and I think Snape deserved Lily a lot more than James did.
9. Dad - Larten Crepsley (The Saga of Darren Shan)
Considering how much of a fantastic mentor Crepsley was to Darren, I think he'd be a wonderful father to have. I love him!
10. Uncle - Lucian Argeneau (Argeneau books)
If any of you have read this series of books by Lynsay Sands, you'll understand what I mean when I say Lucian is the best uncle in the world. He tries to act all mean and grumpy, but he really is a family man.
So there's my list! Be sure to share yours in the comments.
