So this week I wanted to feature a bunch of my most favorite bloggers. The gals that I really enjoy reading because they are authoritative, thoughtful, and creative whenever they set out to post on their blogs. I am not sure if my readership is also reading them too but they should be!
Today we are featuring a gal I just got to know a little bit recently as I was designing her new blog template. Bookworm1858 is "a recent college graduate" who has "fallen even more in love with reading" as she has maintained her blog. Check her out on Twitter & Goodreads! I love this topic of what fictional character she would fix her sister up with!
I was so happy when Jenny invited me to write a guest post for her! I love her blog and am happy to participate. I also want to thank Jenny for providing me with some ideas; the one that really struck my fancy was: what fictional character would I set my sister up with? Now that is both easy and hard.
It’s kind of hard because we don’t necessarily agree on what makes a good book boyfriend. My top picks for myself would probably be Will from Sophie Jordan’s Firelight and Will from Elizabeth Scott’s Perfect You. I like book boys named Will :) Also I would not share them with her-sorry sweetie! Another complication is her love of Edward Cullen from Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series but I do not think he would be a good boyfriend, what with the stalking, possessiveness, and general creepiness so I’m putting my foot down and forbidding it.
But it was also kind of easy since one of our long-time shared favorite authors is Sarah Dessen. She doesn’t write insta-love but instead she shows the characters getting to know each other, how they make each other better, how they just plain work. So I would set her up with Wes, from The Truth About Forever, the boy who defines “sa-woon.” But it’s not just about appearance of course. Wes is sensitive and patient. He doesn’t always know what to say but he knows how to make a grand gesture. And maybe in the end, it wouldn’t work out but I think they’d have a good time while they lasted!
