Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week is a freebie! This week I’ve chosen to list literary families I wouldn’t mind being a part of. It’s always fun to imagine being part of fictional worlds, but here is a list of ten families that I feel I’d fit right into. Ah, to dream…Covers are linked to Goodreads.
Ten Families I’d Like to Be a Part Of:
1. The Weasleys – It is my personal opinion that the Weasleys are the best family in literature and I would be so happy to be a part of their family. Ginny and I could spend all our time talking about Harry Potter and playing pranks on our brothers.
2. The Folcharts – All bookworms need to read Inkheart, Meggie and Mo love books just as much as the rest of us and I would have loved to have grown up with books stacked everywhere.
3. The Beaumonts – I don’t know about you, but being part of a family that has special gifts (called a “savvy”) like creating hurricanes and being able to go back in time would be incredible.
4. The Pevensies – I just really really want to go to Narnia and meet Aslan and Mr. Tumnus.
5. The Sargents – Forget Gansey, I’ll finish the fruit at the bottom of your yogurt, Blue. I imagine that I too wouldn’t have any psychic abilities, so Blue and I could bond over this and our snarky attitudes.
6. The Goodnights – I may have a secret wish for magic to be real, so I can be a witch like one of the members of the Goodnight family.
7. The Morgans – As a member of the Morgan family, I’d be attending the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women. I’ve always thought I’d make a good spy.
8. The Murrays – I imagine Poppet, Widget and I could be the Murray Triplets. Le Cirque des Rêves is one of the most beautiful settings I’ve ever read about and to be a part of it would be so incredible.
9. The Delaneys – I’d have to change my name to something more birdlike, but I’d absolutely adore being part of a family of mediums. And with so many sisters, I imagine we’d get into a ton of trouble, but what adventures we’d have!
10. The Family of Piscu Dracului – I think I just really love the idea of being part of a family with so many sisters (I’m an only girl, I can’t help it) rather than being forced to dance all night, although any world written by Juliet Marillier is so lush and lovely, it’s hard to resist regardless.
