Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book blogging initiative hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl with new themes each week.
This weeks theme is Characters I’d Follow On Social Media (submitted by Tilly @thebiblioshelf)
I struggled a little with this as I’m pretty convinced I’m not using social media right considering what I would follow these characters for!!!
I also had a bit of fun imagining what their handle might be!
Nanny Ogg – Discworld @hedgehogshallnever
Could you imagine!! dispensing wise & often naughty advice Joanne Harris #10ThingsAbout style, dirty jokes and stories about her past and constant gushing over pictures of cat form Greebo hissing, spitting, disembowelling creatures etc
She would have the hugest following
Lucy Sladen and Milo Fisher – Sticky Pines @TruthTooSticky & @FisherOutOfWater
Conspiracy theories, observations about townsfolk, updates on her investigations with Milo (who would OBVIOUSLY Take the amazing pictures)
Clifftoppers Farm – Clifftoppers @CreamGoesFirst
Felicity Wiggety- Brightstorm Adventures @tinglytoes
Recipes, observations, knowledge and musings on Skyship Aurora expeditions in a warm manner
Luna Lovegood – Harry Potter @SpectreSpecs81
Musings on life, kind observations of those around her, pictures and interesting articles about mythology and magical creatures, the odd magical conspiracy theory to boot!
Bonus Podcast/YouTuber- Beanie from MMU. @RMartineau21
Its clear from Robin’s tales that the gorgeous Beanie (whom I adore) is not just a sensitive soul, she has some kind of reading issue, today she would probably be diagnosed with dyslexia though there may well be more hiding under the surface.
In Cream Buns & Crime her best friend Kitty encourages her to record her thoughts and stories on a dictaphone which is where we get The Mystery Of The Missing Bun Break from her perspective and we get to understand just how beautiful, wonderful and incredibly intelligent and observant Beanie really is.
I would love to see more of Beanie, though I don’t know how realistic that would be as Robin is ending the series and even if she did switch to a YA series I doubt that Beanie would be at university bless her, so this is where I could dream of reading more of her observations and thinking even though I’m not really a Youtube kind of person- I prefer to read!
Ok how badly did I do?
Who would you pick? (waiting to groan with disbelief at missing out characters!!!)
