I’m linking up with the ever amazing The Broke and the Bookish for their Top Ten Tuesday prompt which is actually characters to lead -insert organisation here-
BUT I’M CLEVER so I’ll be picking the characters I think are most suited to lead MY LIFE. CLEVERNESS MAN. I shall, of course, be mentioning the books they are from, what part of my life they will be dictating, and why it is a Very Smart Decision to let them do so.
1. Cath from Heartless by Marissa Meyer
Cath is a girl whose greatest passion is baking, and her biggest dream is to open up her own bakery. This one is probably my most foolish pick?? I decided Cath should be in charge of my food. She can cook my meals (I hope she knows how to cook too??) and be in charge of dessert.
IT’S SMART BECAUSE I’LL NEVER HAVE A DISAPPOINTING DESSERT. Since she loves to bake so much but seems to have difficulty opening her own bake shop, I’ll just employ her and pay her with lemons. I’m sure it will work out fine.
2. Lila Bard from Shades of Magic by V. E. Schwab
How to even explain Lila??? She wants to be a pirate and likes magic and getting into trouble. Lila will, of course, be in charge of my adventure time. When I’m not reading and I have a little down time I wouldn’t mind spending some time on a pirate ship. Or competing in a magical tournament.
She will be great for motivating me when I feel lazy or down since she is full of energy. She’s reckless sometimes but we all have our faults let’s not judge.
3. Azriel from A Court of Mist and Fury by S. J. Maas
Azriel is an Illyrian shadowsinger with wings who is both affectionate and shy. I am a shy cookie. Sometimes I really just need some time to myself. A little solitude. A little peace and quiet. Who better to provide me with such than Azriel who is a shadowsinger?? BONUS: he is also devilishly handsome and kind of shy himself. PERFECT MATCH DON’T YOU THINK??
Azriel could use his shadows to hide me from people I don’t feel like talking to like guests who show up unexpectedly at the apartment.
4. Jace from The Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
Jace?? Sassy and reckless. HOW ELSE TO DESCRIBE HIM. Now, you may be wondering: how the HELL can Jace contribute to your day to day life in any practical manner??
WELL I’M SO GLAD YOU ASKED.
Considering the fact that I will one day be a Very Famous author, I will be needing him to be the head of my security detail. I mean. If demons ever come after me, who better to have on hand than Jace? Also it’s just a plus that he is so sassy. I like sass. Give me all the sass.
5. Lazlo from Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
A bookworm with big dreams and a great imagination. I feel like this one should be a no brainer?? I obviously need Lazlo for all the bookish recommendations. And considering the fact that he has a vivid imagination just like mine and is hopelessly infatuated with fairytales, WHAT COULD GO WRONG.
Other than him getting lost in the library when I send him to find some books for me to read. Be creative here guys.
6. Mia from Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
Trained assassin with shadow not-cat pet named Mister Kindly who is sassy and likes to insult Mia. So, since I have Jace to fend of any supernatural threats, I need Mia the assassin to fend off all OTHER threats. The two of them are pretty strong personalities so they won’t like sharing their head duties but we’ll make it work.
Also Mia has an actual conscience unlike most trained assassins out there?? So I think there won’t be any accidental killings of innocent children or anything. BREATHE.
7. Nina from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Grisha on the run who likes to have fun. Nina is sassy as well, which I love. Plus she is obsessed with waffles and just food in general so we already have a conversation topic!
I know that Nina is technically a render but I will keep her handy just in case I get a paper cut that needs healing. Or, you know, to dye my hair. SHE IS A MULTI-TALENT OKAY a must have for any team.
8. Rhy from Shades of Magic by V. E. Schwab
The prince of Red London, does what he wants and is a squishy ball of marshmallow. I think Rhy is the perfect addition to my team?? He is probably the only one with any ‘normal’ social skills. So he’ll be in charge of planning for me to go out into public, and tell me when I’m being to awkward. Also jump in and save me should I (heaven forbid) actually have to talk to strangers.
He’s also the life of the party, so by default everyone will love me by association. #winning
9. Jest from Heartless by Marissa Meyer
JEST: PERFECTION. OKAY OKAY I know I am double dipping in some books, but I need more than one person on my publicity team so I’m picking Jest. IT HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH HOW MUCH I AM PERSONALLY IN LOVE WITH HIM.*
He is witty and charming and sweet. He would make everyone laugh, and probably all the girls would envy me. Not that that’s what I want…
The only problem is I’ll have to stop him from wearing all black. But he can keep his jesters hat.
10. Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling
Luna Lovegood actually isn’t my favorite Harry Potter character. I KNOW I DIFFER FROM EVERYONE ELSE SHOCKING. I don’t actually have a favorite??? I LOVE THEM ALL OKAY. But I feel like I have a lot of really grounded people on my team and I need a little aloofness to balance it all out.
Plus I just read two chapters about Luna during my reread and I think I am finally starting to understand her more than I did when I was younger?? Bless her. We have so much in common.
I had so much fun writing this post, I hope that you guys enjoyed reading who I would put on my team to manage My Entire Life!
Who would you pick to manage your life and why? Do you agree with my picks?? Would you have picked someone else for certain departments???
