This week's topic:
Characters I'd Want As Family Members
I had to think long and hard about this one, especially because ten family members seem a bit excessive for me but I managed. So, here is my fictional family.

10 & 9 Fred and George Weasley from Harry Potter: Big Brothers
Yes, I'm running the risk of massive amounts of teasing and pranks but come on! How fun would they be to have around? No boredom with these two around.
She's smart and sweet and basically just a really good person. Who better to look up to as a big sister.
7. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games- Big Sister
On the other end of the spectrum, Katniss is a bad-ass big sister. You know she's totally got your back and would take a bullet (or a televised fight to the death) for you.
6. Alice from Alice in Wonderland - Little Sister
She's totally cute and the kid has a fantastic imagination. How much fun would it be to just sit and listen to her tales from Wonderland.

5. Henry and Clare from The Time Traveler's Wife- Family Friends
I don't want to deal with Henry's 'disability' all the time but I could totally hang out with them and if Henry wanted to visit me from the future and give me some awesome stock tips... well I wouldn't turn my nose up at it.
4. 90 (or 93) year old, Jacob Jankowski from Water for Elephants- Grandpa
He's funny and feisty and everything that is great about old guys. I love me a crotchety old man and old Jacob totally exemplifies that. If he was my grandpa I would have remembered to come and take him to the circus!

Blame my real husband for my cheesy fictional pick. My hubby is great but romance is not his strong suit. So, when choosing my fictional hubby, I had to go with the super romantic Noah on this one. Pining for years is one thing but standing by you when you've lost your marbles and reading to you to bring you back, that's love.

2. Marmee March from Little Women- Mom
Moms are dedicated, loving, kind, and able to focus in emergency situations. Marmee is all these things and more. Can you find a better example of motherhood?
1. Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird- Dad
'Nuff said. I don't think I have to explain this choice. If you don't get it then you clearly need to pick up this book.
Who is in your fictional family??
