Happy Top Ten Tuesday, everyone! I know, I know, it’s such a surprise (😱) that I am posting during the week!
I got this great idea to write the majority of my drafts during the weekend and then set the timer to post them automatically! Now, the only potential problem with this is the fact that a draft may get posted… And I am not finished with it😂 It probably won’t happen, but if you see an incomplete draft posted, just… keep the fact that I am a scatterbrained Biology major in mind. 😜
What is Top Ten Tuesday?🤔
For those of you who’ve not heard of “Top Ten Tuesday,” allow me to enlighten you! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish every Tuesday and, each Tuesday, there is different topic for which you list your top ten picks. Isn’t it just brilliant?! Be sure to check out The Broke and the Bookish’s blog! You don’t want to miss their awesome bookishness!
Today’s topic is: Ten Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car/Etc. After…. 😏 Heheh… I definitely had a lot of fun with this one!
1. Azalea (Entwined by Heather Dixon)
I just love this name because it’s so… beautiful, I think! It’s elegant and graceful and it rolls off the tongue easily.
2. Ren (Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck)
I love this name because of the character it reminds me of! Ren, the character, is so sweet and gentle, yet fierce and protective. I’d definitely name my dog (or cat) after him! Or a child… I mean, why not?
3. Gatsby (The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald)
I do, in fact, have a dog named Gatsby after The Great Gatsby. He has yet to find his Daisy…
4. Henry (The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter)
5. Jezlia/Lia (Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson)
This name reminds me of a fighter (the character in the book is very much a fighter)! Someone who is very clever and doesn’t give up easily. It’s a unique name and I… oh I don’t know, I just like it!
6. Feyre (A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas)
I’ve never heard this name prior to reading ACOTAR… Probably because Ms. Maas made it up! How cool is it to make a name up? I mean, anyone can do it, but whether or not it sounds good is another story entirely. Again, this name rolls off the tongue nicely and it’s not harsh sounding.
7. Dante (The Hourglass Door by Lisa Magnum)
I had to put Dante on the list because THD is my FAVORITE book of all time. It never gets old. Dante is an amazing guy. Oh, how I wish he existed.
8. Maxon (The Selection by Keira Cass)
Prince Maxon from The Selection is…. I don’t even have the words! I really like this name… It’s different! And you can get the nickname “max” from it!
9. Eadlyn (The Selection series by Keira Cass)
This is an anglo-saxon name that I have never heard of prior to reading The Heir! I immediately liked it. I think it’s very feminine and elegant.
10. Kestrel (The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski)
I don’t know what it is about this name, but I really like it! Yes, it is a type of bird. No, that doesn’t make it any less cool! I just really like the way this name sounds!What are your Top Ten Tuesday picks? Let me know in the comment box!
