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. 


  1. Lots of potential family members in HP, I think.

    I chose to attempt to find entire families I'd be happy to join. Tricky. http://readerbuzz.blogspot.com/2011/03/ten-books-with-characters-id-want-as.html

  2. Great list! I should have added Dumbledore to mine, he would make a great uncle!

  4. Omg great list! i wanted to add Jace somewhere on mine, but i think he's too hot for me to want to be "related" to him! :P Nice one with Dumbledore! i should have added that but for some stupid reason i always forget the good ones :P and thanks for dropping by my blog!

  5. I love that you included Dimitri as a husband pick...good idea! I also picked Rose as a sister. Love Vampire Academy! :) Great idea included Jace...how could I have forgotten about him!?

  6. DAMON how could i for get him, i have to edit, imedetlly his so totally my husband, lol great list though,

  7. Interesting choices and great list, stop and see mine.

  8. I haven't read many of those books so I don't know the characters ... yet! But I have to agree with you over Grandad. Dumbledore would make a fab grandad :D

  9. I wondered last night if anyone would list Snape -- I assume he'd be friendly to family than your run-of-the-mill Gryffindor!

  10. I can't believe I missed all of the cool Harry Potter potential. I did think of Hermione, but I didn't want to be in her shadow. I love Dumbledore as a Grandfather though!

  11. I think Damon would make a great brother! You would be the one person safe from his wrath lol He might go after those you love, sure, but you would be safe ;)

  12. I love your list! Vampire Academy and Harry Potter rule my life. And TV!Damon, oh my do I love him. The books were boring and I'm glad the show really took it to a new awesomeness.
