This Top 5 Wednesday I am going to be talking about the characters from books that I would love to have as family. Let’s get started!
1. Hermione from Harry Potter
I always wanted an older sister that I could learn from, admire, and steal clothes from, and I feel like Hermione would be perfect. She’s so knowledgable but also has an emotional range larger than a teaspoon, so she could be there for me to help with books and studying as well as teaching me about love and life.
2. Sherlock Holmes
I’d love to have Holmes as an uncle. I think Holmes deductive reasoning skills are just astounding and I feel like he would be a kick at family reunions.
3. Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye
As much as I didn’t like Holden when I first read this book in high school, I did recognize how much he loved Phoebe. I think that relationship is one of my favorites, therefore I’d love to experience what that kind of brother-sister relationship is like (not that I don’t love my real brother dearly!).
4. Dumbledore from Harry Potter
He’s wise, he’s intelligent, and he’s got a great beard! I’d love to have Dumbledore as my grandfather so I could hear his stories and learn from everything he’s accomplished.
5. Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit
I would love to have Bilbo as my uncle. With all his adventures and great outlook on life, he’s be great to have as a distant role model.
Who would you want to have as your family? Let me know in the comments below.
