Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Characters I'd Want As Family Members

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, a state that you don't have to worry about being deprived of more books as long as you're near a library. ;) This week's Top Ten is:

Top Ten Characters I'd Want As Family Members

1. Janco from Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder - This guy is such a joker, I almost wish he was either a big brother or a cousin that I was close enough to feel as though he was a big brother. Plus, he could teach me how to pick locks, so there's no way anyone could lock me in a room again. ;)

2. Atticus from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - I love my own father too much to want Atticus to fill his shoes, but I think he would make an awesome uncle. Full of advice while also being supportive, Atticus would fill the role of the cool uncle in the family.

3. Alanna from The Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce - She kicks total butt when it comes down to it, plus she rides a beautiful horse, so if she's a good big sister, she'll let you borrow her steed. 

4. Fudge from Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume - Yes, I realize little brothers always cause all sorts of trouble, and Fudge certainly has done his share of mischief. But really, that's what makes him so endearing.

5. Cimorene from The Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia Wrede - Somehow, I think she'd make an excellent big sister, plus she could teach me how to make cherries jubilee, something I've never tried making before! And she's friends with dragons, what's not to love about that?

6. Sydney Carton from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens - He's the older brother that has some issues, yet when it really comes down to it, will do anything to help his loved ones. 

7. Schmendrick from The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle - The bumbling uncle that somehow always manages to make you laugh, that is what would definitely describe Schmendrick. 

8. Elona from The Princess's Dragon by Susan Trombley - She's the big sister that always gives her younger sisters a hard time, but despite this, she still loves and adores her little sisters. 

9. Draco from Dragonheart by Charles Edward Pogue - Definitely a great-grandfather figure who tells amazing stories to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I know he's a dragon, but that allows him to know more of the family for a longer time. ;)

10. Skeeve from Another Fine Myth by Robert Aspirin - A younger brother who can perform magic, he's adorable but you can still tweak his ears if he misbehaves or causes trouble. 


  1. These are interesting picks. I had tough time with it yet somehow picked TEN!

    Here is my Top Ten Picks post!

  2. I ALMOST chose Fudge for a little brother!!

  3. We read to many of the same books! I had to switch a few so our list would not be too similiar! :) So in other words- Great list!

  4. Atticus would make a great dad...uncle...friend. Wish there were more Atticuses in my world.

  5. i forgot about Fudge! That's an awesome choice.
