Welcome back to another Top 5 Tuesdays. If you aren’t familiar with Top 5 Tuesday, it is a group here on WordPress that is currently run by Shanah over at BionicBookWorm. Each week you are given a topic and you talk about 5 books that fit that category.
This week’s topic is the Top 5 Characters I Want as A Best Friend. If you are also participating in Top 5 Tuesdays this week or you have previously done a post on a similar topic then please leave your link in the comments and I will check out your post!
- Izzy O’Neil from The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven
I promise that one day I will stop including TEOOO in all my posts but today is not that day. I love Izzy and as I said in my review of this brilliant book, she is the female protagonist of my dreams and one of my favourite characters ever.
- Samwise Gamgee from The Lord of The Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
I think we can all agree that Sam would be the most loyal and supportive friend you would ever have. He would always have your back and follow you to the fiery pits of Mordor, no questions asked! We all know who the real MVP of LOTR is and it’s definitely not Frodo!
- Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling
I almost didn’t include Ron in this list as I thought it may be too much of an obvious of a choice, but I couldn’t resist, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s featured on a lot of other people’s list as well! Ron is that lovable and dopey friend that you can always count on to be there for you and to make you laugh (not to mention his family would treat you like one of their own and who wouldn’t want that!)
- Tiny Cooper from Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Leviathan
He is extravagant, hilarious, such a diva and has a ridiculously big heart and a lot of love for his friends. He’s a brilliant character and I actually feel sad I don’t have a real Tiny Cooper in my life!
To quote from the book itself:
‘Tiny Cooper is not the world’s gayest person, and he is not the world’s largest person, but I believe he may be the world’s largest person who is really, really gay, and also the world’s gayest person who is really, really large.’
- Bridget Jones from Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding
I feel like this one is quite self-explanatory. Every friendship group needs a Bridget!
So, there you have it, the top 5 characters I’d want as a best friend. In real life I am actually such a girl’s girl so I’m not sure why the major of this list consists of boys. I honestly found it hard to pick as there were some other great options which I’m going to list anyway even though its kind of cheating:
Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, Sasha Cade from The Last Wish of Sasha Cade, Peeta Mellark from the Hunger Games, Elsa from My Grandmother Asked me to Tell you She’s sorry, Merry & Pippin from Lord of the Rings, Beatrice from Much Ado About Nothing, Dickon from The Secret Garden & Winnie the Pooh from well, you know what he’s from!
Thanks for reading! Which characters would you want to be best friends with? Let me know in the comments below!
