Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme brought to you by the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish (the pic also belongs to them). This week’s theme is Spring Fever: Top Ten Books I’d Play Hooky With
I was having trouble coming up with a list of books that wouldn’t repeat my other top ten lists, so I decided to go with book characters I’d play hooky with!
Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables – There would be no one better to spend a beautiful spring day with! Maybe we could dye each other’s hair?
Hassan from An Abundance of Katherines – Sometimes all I want to do is lie around watching Judge Judy. I have reason to believe that Hassan would enjoy making wisecracks at daytime television with me.
Manchee from The Knife of Never Letting Go – My very own talking dog/new best friend. We’d go for walks in parks. Very safe parks.
Eric Northman from Dead to the World – Dead sexy.
Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series – Luna’s an odd duck, but I have to imagine an afternoon with her would involve something completely unexpected.
Jane Eyre from Jane Eyre – Jane and I would sit around talking books and drinking tea. I imagine it’d be like the days she spent with Helen Burns or something.
Qwill from the Cat Who books – Qwill is rich and always doing something interesting… like sponsoring art shows or going to a cabin or something. Also, he and his cat solve mysteries. I am sure it would be an interesting day, although I worry I might get murdered if I were to briefly befriend Qwill.
