This week's topic is: Book Characters I'd Follow on Social Media
I thought this topic would be a lot harder than it was! Once I got started, I couldn't stop finding characters I'd love to follow based upon the social media presence that I have imagined for them and it was a ton of fun. Maybe I'll expand this post sometime since I only made it through so many books before I'd used up all ten.
I chose both Brightstorm siblings because I feel like Arthur would be constantly posting awesome stories and photos from his various travels, while Maddie would be posting similar content, but also more relating to whatever she is researching at the moment or more factual information abut the places they visit and adventures they embark on! It'd be a perfect combo with incredible content.
2. Peggy Batternberg from Dreamland by Nancy Bilyeau
I have a feeling that after all of Peggy's, er, 'adventures,' from her summer on Coney Island she would be posting a lot about social justice and sharing stories and experiences of immigrants who have made their way to America. Plus, I think her commentary on the goings-on of the world around her would be highly entertaining.
3. Shana from Wanderers by Chuck Wendig
Shana already wants to be a reporter of sorts and I think she'd be the perfect person to follow if you want uncensored news that covers everything from all sides and doesn't ever hide anything from her readers.
Honestly, I'd follow all of the members of this book's gang on social media, but I particularly feel like these four would be awesome to follow. Evie would just be a lot of fun, sharing gossip and keeping things upbeat; Sam would offer wit and jokes while also being able to know when to keep it real; Mabel would be posting about people from all walks of life, sharing a lot about charity work, and just in general share more wholesome content with a focus on helping the less fortunate; and lastly, since Campbell is a budding poet, I'd definitely follow him for all of the poetry snippets he'd post and for his poetic way of describing the world around him!
8. Asha from The Shadow of What Was Lost by James Islington
I feel like Asha would post a lot about cutting-edge research and a lot really interesting topics that might vary in content, but would also be fascinating to read about. I also feel like she'd share book recommendations, but that could just be a sense I get from her.
9. Mr. Kindly from Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
So Mr. Kindle would never have a social media account, but since this post isn't about things that are real, I'm going to say that I would absolutely follow Mr. Kindly. He would offer the most dry, often-times scathing, and sarcastic comments about people and things going on in the world and I am one hundred percent here for it.
10. Elizabeth Somers from Winterhouse by Ben Guterson
Elizabeth is a girl who loves puzzles of all kinds, from jigsaw to word puzzles, and I think she'd post a lot of fun puzzles for her followers to solve or would just post about any puzzling thing she comes across in the world (and pun jokes!). She also loves to read, so I have no doubt she'd post about her books and reading a lot, which I'm obviously here for.
What book characters would you like to follow on social media? Would you follow any of these characters?
