Time for another round of Friday Fun from Jamie at The Perpetual Page Turner. This week, I’ll be awarding superlatives to characters from a variety of books. It’s meant to mimic the idea of senior superlatives, which I never had, but I’m happy to award them to my favorite bookish characters.
Most Likely To Change The World
Adelice Lewys from Crewel.
Either Adam and Mia from If I Stay and Where She Went or Mara and Noah from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and The Evolution of Mara Dyer.
Georgia Nicholson from the Confessions of Georgia Nicholson is the only character in a book that has literally made me laugh out loud.
Most Likely To Become Famous For Their Athletic/Musical/Artistic Abilities
Carmen from Virtuosity. Even though when the book ends she decides to give up music for a while, I think she’ll come back to it and be better than ever. When music has been a part of your life for that long, it’s hard to stay away from it for too long.
All Around Good Person
Zach from Nantucket Blue. He’s a sweetie, and he always came off as genuine to me. It also doesn’t hurt that he kind of reminds me of my boyfriend.
Jules from Die for Me. I love him. Can there be a Team Jules, please?
Most Likely To Be Fought Over
Oliver from The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. I mean, who doesn’t love a charming British man?
Mostly Likely To Be Friends Forever
Mallory & Colleen from Hysteria, which I just finished reading yesterday. I haven’t seen a strong girl friendship in a long time, and I found their relationship really touching. I would have picked Caitlin and Ingrid from Hold Still, but I don’t know if friendships where one person died counts…
Most Likely To Have Their Own Reality Show
Callie Andrews from The Ivy. I’ve always thought this series should be a TV show. As a reality show, The Ivy would be one of those shows you scoff and in public but secretly love in the dead of night when you watch it on your lonesome.
Bea from OCD Love Story. She’s super quirky and different and I love her.
Most Likely To Survive An Apocalypse
Wren from Reboot. Her training as a reboot will help her a lot and her lack of emotions doesn’t hurt either.
Most Likely To Be A Villain
Vaughn from the Chemical Gardens trilogy. So much ew. And creep. And just…bad.
Eleanor from Eleanor & Park. I think her new living arrangements will help her come out of her shell more, but other than Park, Eleanor didn’t interact with other teens a whole lot.
Most Likely To Break Your Heart
Lena Duchannes from Beautiful Creatures. I just started the series, but I already know she’s going to break Ethan’s heart many, many times. I just know it.
Jonas from The Giver.
Most Likely To Get Arrested
Kat & Lillia from Burn for Burn and Fire with Fire. That stunt they pulled on Reeve with the ecstasy was no joke.
Self Proclaimed God/Goddess
Edward from Twilight. His whole oh-no-I’m-so-tortured-brood-brood-brood thing got on my nerves SO. FREAKING. MUCH.
Best Person To Bring Home To Mom & Dad
Xander from Matched. He’s an all-around stand-up guy.
Most Likely To Make You Cry
Dares To Be Different (in world, plot, storytelling, etc.)
You think it’s about one thing, but then IT’S NOT!
Best Dressed (pretty cover!)
Screw the new covers. SCREW THEM.
Most Likely To Make You Swoon
The writing in Shatter Me was good, but the writing in this book just blew me away.
Most Likely To Be A Favorite Of 2013
This book is so weird and awesome.
Most Likely To Change The World (or change your life)
Book You Are Most Likely To Keep Putting Off
I started this book and never finished it. I still have the year-old digital ARC on my Kindle though. Is it worth reading?
Most Likely To End Up As Christmas Gifts For Everyone You Know
So. Worth. The hype.
Most Likely To Be Thrown
Most Likely To Be Reread More Than Once
I’ve listened to this book on tape so many times, but since the movie’s coming out in March, I’ll need to refresh my memory.
Most Likely To Make You Read Through An Earthquake Because It’s THAT Engrossing
I know I talk about this book all the time, but I really think everyone should read it.
Most Likely To Be Passed On To Your Children
This was one of my favorite books when I was little, and then one year my parents actually took me to Chincoteague!
Most Likely To Break Your Heart Into A Million Pieces
Most Likely To Brighten Up Your Day
This book will definitely make you smile.
