Top Ten Book Characters I'd Love To Be Besties With

- - - Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme, created at The Broke and The Bookish but now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl, where a new topic is given for a top ten book-related list - - -

Most of these characters are ones I would love to be besties with and just know we would click or have the most fun times together. For some, I feel I would be too nervous to hang out with them or be a one-sided bestie hoping they'll look my way and take me in as a protégé or something hah. I tried to include a variety of characters but let me be honest, I can't be besties with a hero... I'm 9/10 going to be secretly in love with him. :')

1. Iko from The Lunar Chronicles series
How could I not consider the most adorable, friendly and hilarious android?!
Watch us hit the town together and swoon over all the cuties that pass by.

2. Eve Dallas from In Death series
The ult role model in badassery and dedication.
She doesn't give two cents about fashion or hair but puts her whole self into finding justice for the dead.
She's very caring for those close to her and I just want to be in that inner circle of cool ok?

3. Stella Lane from The Kiss Quotient
Sweet and intelligent. Must protect at all costs.
The moment I met Stella, I felt we could be great friends.
We're both awkward, don't know sh*t about relationships but want to learn all the things.

4. Shin-ah from Yona of the Dawn
This precious precious soul who I love but would settle with being a bestie for.
He's very quiet but will do everything to protect his friends.
Plus, he has a little chipmunk pet. I mean, LOOK AT HIM.

5. Georgie Mackee from The Piper's Son
Family first. We have that in common and it's a biggie trait.
She seems very down-to-earth, strict yet loving and humorous.
I would be down to hangout with her and her outrageous family. any. day.

7. Zuzana from Daughter of Smoke & Bone series
I would absolutely love to do street performances with her.
She could dance while I play the piano?? Just an idea.
I can also see us meeting up at a cafe while she spills the tea.

8. Holly Bradshaw from I-Team series
Another character who I look up to and would be awed to be besties with.
Time spent with Holly Bradshaw is always for sure to be a hoot!

6. Lily Calloway from Addicted series
Awkward pop culture guru alert!
I will forever hold Lily in my heart and would be more than willing to hang out with her.
 We could watch Marvel movies and read comic books. Yes please.

9. Mei from Full Metal Alchemist
Aside from our constant meet ups for delicious food,
I hope she'll teach me martial arts and alkahestry!
Her little panda Xiao-Mei is always welcome to come as well.

10. Kitty Covey from To All The Boys I've Loved Before
Despite the big age difference between us, I would want to be her bestie / pretend sister.
She's a little wise thing with a heart of gold.
If you haven't read the novel, her character is 1000x better in the books... just sayin'

Were you familiar with any of these characters? Do we share besties?

  1. I didn't even think of Lily when I made my list, I read those books so long ago but loved them!

    Great list ☺

    Amber ♡ The Book Bratz
    My TTT!

    1. Yes! It's been a while since I've reread the books but Lily is always in my heart heheh xD

  2. Stella Lane is a great choice.

    My TTT.

    1. Right?? The Kiss Quotient was one of my top faves last year. I look forward to reading The Bride Test soon. Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. When I saw this week's prompt, Iko was the first character to pop up on my head! She has all the best qualities I look for in a friend

  4. I want to be friends with the whole Addicted/Calloway gang! Great choice picking Lily!

    1. You and me both! Can we find a way to get in that friendship circle pls

  5. Lily Calloway is such an angel and I love her so much and AGREE 100% with you picking her. I included all three of the core Calloway sisters (although, I have no doubt I'd befriend Poppy as well but I didn't include her) in mine because that whole gang is squad goals. I'm honestly surprised I showed a little self control and didn't list all the characters. Haha! That being said, Stella Lane is, also, a total angel and I love her. Great picks in general!

    1. Everything you've mentioned in this comment.. I 110% agree! I didn't even think to list the others so shame on me ;__;

  6. Iko is one of the purest, most wholesome characters I've ever read about - I'd 1000% befriend her immediately. Zuzana was such a supportive, lovely friend! And Stella is amazing - although, tbh, I'd love to be friends with with all the main characters from The Kiss Quotient and The Bride Test. Great list!

    My TTT

    1. I haven't read TBT yet but to hear you'd want to befriend them all I am excited to get started! Thanks for popping by my blog :)

  7. Oh, Mei is such a good choice! She's adorable, and probably, she'd let you hug her panda, and that's so much win right there already. Great picks!

    Here's my TTT post.

    1. I was torn between her and Olivier but I'm pretty sure she wouldn't consider me being a best friend or give me a second glance lol. Where can I find myself an adorable panda buttkicking side kick though??

  8. I'd love to have a friend like Iko!!

    1. She would be the ultimate wingandroid when going out and the best supporter of my love life I think hahah

  9. I saw Mei and gasped!! Absolutely yes :D

  10. I love that Lily Calloway is on your list, too! She’s so fiercely loyal and adorably awkward. Love her!! :)

    1. YES I'm so glad there are many that love Lily. Give her alllll the love :')
