This week, Tom and I are discussing the ten characters we'd want with us on a deserted island.
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely ladies at The Broke and the Bookish! -J & T
10. Beetee from The Hunger Games (Tom)
9. Myfanwy from The Rook (Jess)
Ok - I'm know you guys know that I'm pretty much the world's biggest fangirl for The Rook.
So it's probably unsurprising that I would love to hang out with Myfanwy on a deserted island. She'd totally organize everyone's belongings, and make sure that there was some kind of elaborate system in place to keep the island nifty.
8. Cal from The Prince of Venice Beach (Tom)
7. Gigi from Smart Girls Get What They Want (Jess)
I love Gigi from Smart Girls. She's witty, funny and absolutely unabashed of the fact that she's smart and ambitious.
However, she's also conscious of what it means to have both an EQ and an IQ. She's into trying new things now, and also totally fashion savvy now.
I would love to hang out with her while we figured out how to survive on a deserted island, and I'm sure we'd have a great time discussing both the physics of building something out of coconuts and whether we could make clothes out of the palm leaves or something.
6. Katniss from The Hunger Games (Jess)
5. Lucy from Love, Lucy (Jess)
I'm cheating slightly by mentioning this, because Love, Lucy isn't out until next year.
However, I love Lucy Sommersworth. She's smart, willing to take risks, but also not willing to let a guy completely dictate her life choices and future.
She's someone I'd want to have on an island with me, since I think she's smart, capable and has a great no nonsense attitude.
4. William from The Swiss Family Robinson (Tom)
3. Celaena from Throne of Glass (Jess)
Also, I feel like she'd have some amazing stories to tell me about her past journeys.
