Top 5 Wednesday 

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly post that is hosted by Sam from Thoughts On Tomes and there is also a Goodreads group where you can find more information.

This weeks topic is Characters You Would Want As Family. 


The Weasley family is kind of a no brainer, because magic! I’m sure they’ll be on many lists today. But they’re also so fun and warm, who wouldn’t want to have them as a surrogate family?!


I’ve raved before about how much I love the Blue Heron series by Kristan Higgins and part of the reason I love them so much is because of the Holland family. First of all, they own a vineyard! What’s better than wine?! Nothing except wine and a book of course. They’re a little bit dysfunctional but in an endearing way. Maybe I have a thing for large, crazy, loud families?


I just think the entire Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella is adorable and the entire Bloomwood family is a big part of why I love these books! Becky is such a love able goof ball with all of her wacky schemes and her parents are so sweet and dear!


I’m a sucker for a James Patterson series and one of my favorites is the Michael Bennett series. He’s a widower police detective with ten kids and his family is just as crazy as you would imagine. But they are love each other fiercely and all of the Bennett kids are just adorable and amazing.


I’m feeling nostalgic mainly because my oldest daughter just started reading Ramona and Beezus. This is one of the first books that I remember reading on my own as well of one of the books from my childhood that has always stuck with me. It really made me into the readaholic that I am today. The Quimby family is quirky, funny and Ramona is a riot, I would love to have them as family! 

What fictional families who you like to be a part of?
