Top Ten Tuesday: A Family of Characters

Today's prompt over at The Broke and the Bookish is to list characters we think would be cool to have in our family. So I decided to actually create a family of characters. You'll see what I mean.

FATHER: Atticus Finch... I mean who else could this be? Perfect wonderful dad.

MOTHER: Marmie from Little Women... she had some issues, but also seems pretty wonderful.

What celebrity would you pick to play Gen?
Since none are to be found, I choose this drawing
which I really quite like.

BROTHER: Gen from the The Queen's Thief series, because he just has to be part of this family and wouldn't he be a fun brother? He'd keep you hopping that's for sure.

SISTER: Jane Bennet from Pride and Prejudice, because she seems like someone you could tell anything to, just as a sister should be.

BEST FRIEND: Anne... of Green Gables fame... what fun she has with life!

GRANDMA: Grandma Dowdel from A Long Way From Chicago by Richard Peck... she totally reminded me of my real life grandma, so of course I'm adding her to the list!

(oh boy, can't find the perfect picture for this character!)

GRANDPA: Major Pettigrew because of all the reasons I listed here.

AUNT: Alice Cullen, because I just really thought we needed someone like her in our family! Besides, don't we need at least one vampire?

Lots of speculation on who'll be playing this part,
but this is how I picture him.
UNCLE: The character that wouldn't get out of my head for this one was Haymitch from The Hunger Games! Yes! Don't you think he just seems like your crazy uncle?

COUSIN: Huckleberry Finn because it's with cousins you go and have adventures and get into to trouble even sometimes.

Who would you like to have in your family?


  1. We got Marmie in common!

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

    Here is my Top Ten Picks post!

  2. That is exactly how I'd picture Haymitch!!!

  3. As Kristina said, that is how I picture Haymitch, too! She stole my comment. lol

    Gen is a must for sure! What a great person to have around. What a great author to hurry up and write another book...

    This was a fun idea. :)

  4. This was fun to read. You picked great choices, and imagine if they were all true? What a family you would have!

  5. I love your take on this list! Fantastic characters as well. I don't know all of them by book, but I know most of them at least by movie.

  6. What great choices! I'm totally with you on Atticus Finch and Marmee.

  7. I also had Atticus on my list and Anne would make a perfect sister! Great call on Haymitch!!!

  8. LOL! I would be so annoyed if I had a perfect sister like Jane. She's make me feel so bad compared to her sweet goodness. And having Gen for a brother might be fun, but I would pity the mother who had him for a son.

  9. Haha, I picked Atticus as well and put up the same picture of him! Anne would be an amazing friend to have, and Huck and Alice are nice picks too.

  10. What an amazing cast of fictional family members! How great would it be if it were really a family! I really love this post and will have to give some serious consideration to who I'd choose.
