Bookish Superlatives

I did today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic as a freebie not too long ago, so I decided to do another one of Jamie’s fun bookish posts today.

CHARACTERS

Most Likely To Change The World

Sham Yes ap Soorap from Railsea by China Mieville

Cutest Couple

Eleanor and Park from Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Class Clown

The Crazy Eight from the Spud books by John van de Ruit – more reason not to send my kids to boarding school!

Most Likely To Become Famous For Their Athletic/Musical/Artistic Abilities

Zuzana from Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – that ballet puppet, guys!

All Around Good Person

Clay from Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher – despite what he may think

Biggest Flirt

Thabo from Deadlands by Lily Herne

Most Likely To Be Fought Over

Gus from The Fault in our Stars by John Green – yes, I have a thing for nerdy romance

Mostly Likely To Be Friends Forever

Harry, Ron and Hermione from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

Most Likely To Have Their Own Reality Show

Most Unique

Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

Most Likely To Survive An Apocalypse

Zinzi from Zoo City by Lauren Beukes

Biggest Wallflower

Miles from Looking for Alaska by John Green

Most Likely To Break Your Heart

Jondoe from Bumped/Thumped by Megan McCafferty – as with Lev earlier, I am not convinced. Call me a skeptic.

Most Changed

Willie Beech from Good Night, Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian – he changes so much in physical attributes and emotional quotient

George from George’s Marvelous Medicine by Roald Dahl – if boy George is not careful, he is going to end up in a meth kitchen (kidding… maybe)

Self Proclaimed God/Goddess

Victor Farborough from Shades by Marguerite Poland – oooh this man made me see RED, he was such a piece of rubbish!

Best Person To Bring Home To Mom & Dad

The Prince from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry – just the prince part 😛
