Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Characters that I would give Halloween a chance for

top 10 tuesday

Hello, welcome back to another Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:

Halloween themed freebie — your choice (ie. 10 best ghost stories, 10 things that scare you in books, 10 literary Halloween costumes, 10 vampire novels, 10 books that WILL scare you, 10 non-scary books for Halloween, 10 scariest covers, etc.)

I don’t do Halloween, like, at all. I don’t read scary books, I don’t watch scary movies, I don’t dress up or go out partying. I don’t do any of those things. So this week I decided to name 10 characters that I would totally do the Halloween thing for, or, people who are so cool that I would totally like to dress up as them.


1. Cath (Fangirl)

True, it wouldn’t be exactly hard to dress up as Cath, but it would be a blast. Cath is so relatable, that if I raid my closet I would probably have everything I needed to “be” her. (source)

2. Tessa Gray (The Infernal Devices)

Dressing up as any Shadowhunter would be great, but I have a soft spot for Tessa Gray’s clothes 😉 . (source)

3. Aelin Ashryver Galathynius (Throne of Glass Series)

Celaena’s clothes are all amazing, but I love her tunics and pants, and that dress from Queen of Shadows? With the Dragon? WOW!!! (source)

4. Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter series)

Dressing up as a student from Hogwarts would already be pretty great, but Luna is just special. (source)

5. Feyre (A Court of Thorns and Roses)

Feyre is a bit kickass, I mean, she gets to wear some gorgeous clothes – though not dresses at first – and she has a bow and arrows, so she has a Katniss vibe going on as well… (source)

6. Dahlia Moss (The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss)

I read this book recently (and loved it) and Dahlia just wears the most ridiculous things sometimes… I mean, a jigglypuff hat?!

7. Shahrzad (The Wrath and the Dawn)

Shazi just has the most amazing set of clothes (and husband), so I would totally dress like her for one day… though I suspect that I would be thoroughly embarrassed by the amount of skin showing…

8. Elizabeth Bennet (Pride and Prejudice)

Does this need an explanation? (source)

9. Eleanor (Eleanor & Park)

I love Eleanor’s style, she’s so unique, and I love her so much, that I would totally be her for one day (if her family didn’t come attached). (source)

10. Professor McGonagall (Harry Potter series)

I’ve mentioned before that I think McGonagall rocks, and I would totally dress up as her for Halloween 😀 .

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds

And it’s Tuesday again! The Top Ten Tuesday theme this week is “Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds“, which surprisingly was harder than I thought to come up with 10. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. So, without further ado…

Top Ten Tuesday

1. Cath – Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Cath is the ultimate book nerd, she not only loves to read, but she loves to live inside their world. And Cath reading to Levi is the cutest thing ever.

2. Celaena – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

The girl loves a good book, even more than she loves killing (I hope)!

“I can survive well enough on my own — if given the proper reading material.”

3. Dorian – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

The second bookworm in this series is Prince Dorian. Come on, the Prince has a library in his room and it is said several times that he was born more of a reader than a fighter. And it’s so cute that he has books at the ready to send Celaena when she asks for books.

4 & 5. Tessa and Will – The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare

These two are such bookworms. She spends all her time surrounded by books and he knows the books by heart.

“One must always be careful of books, and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.”

6. Hermione Granger – Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

This one is mandatory. I bet not one single person is going to leave Hermione out of this list, am I right? Come on, at 11 the girl read the school manuals before even setting foot at the school.

7. Dante – Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Dante loves to read and shares his love for books with Aristotle. It’s also very cute.

8. Luke – The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

Luke has a bookstore, which is kind of cool. Also, he’s one of my favorite characters from the Shadowhunters chronicles :).

9. Elizabeth Bennet – Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

True that Jane Austen tell us that for a woman to be accomplished she has to read and to all these other stuff, but Lizzie really did enjoy reading.

10. Catherine Morland – Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

Other of Austen’s heroines that loved to spend a good deal of time with her nose in a book, especially if they were sordid and scandalous…
