  3. We have so many in common! I love seeing Blue on other people's lists because she is awesome. I can't wait to read The Scorpio Races and meet Puck - it's on my shelf waiting for me to read it!
    My TTT!

  4. I haven't seen or read Game of Thrones yet so I can't comment on that but I definitely agree with your choice of Hermione!

    1. Ignore that-I don't know WHY I put Game of Thrones in the comment-brain was elsewhere I think! Move along now, nothing to see here....*hangs head in shame*

  5. I love seeing these lists! Such great personalities to revisit and meet for the first time! Thanks for sharing and I hope to see you around my blog


  6. That fanart of Celaena is one of my favorites - good choice! I’ve never seen that image of Alina before though; that’s so cool!

  7. Great top ten and I love how you display your choices with fan art. The one of Sophronia and Soap makes me melt.

  8. Veronica. Love that savvy detective. I watched the pilot for Outlander and thought it was pretty good. Definitely an intriguing beginning. :)

  9. Hermoine seems to be on everyone's list. I like scarlet too. great list.

  10. Scarlet is awesome and Hermione and Celaena are the absolute best!! Loved your list :D

  16. I am not surprised to see Celaena and Hermione.They're making a lot of lists this week.
    I really adore Alina.Her character growth throughout the book is quite amazing.

    Great list!

  17. Very nice list! Alina came close to making mine, and I really, really need to read Throne of Glass, because I think Celaena is on seriously every single list I have seen!

  18. Great list! I don't think I saw Scarlet on any other lists, it was Cinder who made mine. =)
