Top 5 Wednesday: Characters You’d Want as Family

Top 5 Wednesday is a Booktube group which makes book related top five lists. I’m not very regular with my Youtube videos so I’ll post them here instead when I can.

For more info on the group looks here on the Goodreads page:


This week is ‘Characters You’d Want as Family’. Surprisingly I had four people that came straight to mind when I saw this topic. I’m one of those readers that imagine themselves in the story as they’re reading / watching it so I just had to remember the family roles that I had in place:


5) Marco in The Night Circus:

I guess I could imagine him as an interesting brother or something. It would be fun learning from him and trying to help him with the circus. TBH he’s only on here because I needed a fifth.



4) Bo in Lost Girl:

I would love to have her as a cousin or a fun aunt. Can you imagine what she’d teach me? Also I’d be related to the Blood king, which would be interesting. About half way through the series I started imagining her in a cousin role, more specifically cousin-in-law.

3) Harry in the Harry Potter series:

I’ve always imagined him in a sort of younger brother role. It’s how I read the book. As the youngest child IRL is would be a nice change.



2) Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer:

Brother again…. maybe an adopted brother so its slightly less strange that he was my first crush.

1) Morgan in Sweep / Wicca series:

As I was reading it I always wanted to be related to Morgan, no idea why. I always imagined her as a cousin … always from her dad’s side…. but I’d accept any kind of family member.
