Top 10 Tuesdays: 5 Characters I’d Be Friends With and 5 That I Wouldn’t

Top 10 Tuesdays: 5 Characters I’d Be Friends With and 5 That I Wouldn’t

Hello, Lovely Bookworms!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

This week’s prompt is about 10 different characters that I would like to be friends with. I really couldn’t think of that many characters that I’d want to be friends with, so I came up with 5 I’d like to be friends with and 5 that I would never in a million years want to be friends with.

Who would I like to be friends with?

1.) Tarzan (Tarzan and the Apes)

Tarzan would be an awesome friend. Not only because he could help me meet some gorilla friends, but also he takes care of the ones he cares about. Plus who better to back you up in a sticky situation?

2.) Gandalf (Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit)

All-powerful wizard with cool ass fireworks and just a flare for mischief? Yes please.

3.) Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Holmes)

He might be a bit of an ass, and too smart for his own safety, but who wouldn’t want the most deductive mind in the world as a sidekick. Well to be more specific I’d be worse than Watson, and wouldn’t even be worthy of being a Sherlock sidekick, but maybe I can admire him from afar.

4.) Kaladin Stormblessed (The Stormlight Archive)

Hard working, caring, and puts himself before everyone else. I see myself a lot in Kaladin, so I think we would make good friends.

5.) Jack/Mary (The Magic Treehouse)

These two took me on some wild adventures when I was a kid, and being their friends and sharing stories with them would be awesome. I couldn’t pick between the two because they sort of come as a team, but two friends are better than one.

and who would I never want to be friends with?

1.) Dolores Umbridge (Harry Potter)

I don’t even need to describe why I wouldn’t want to be friends with Umbridge do I?

2.) Daisy Buchanan (The Great Gatsby)

Spoiled, selfish, and too materialistic. I don’t think she earns quite enough hate for how bad of a person she really is.

3.) Joffrey Baratheon (Game of Thrones)

There is a four letter word that would describe this man, and it begins with a C. I shall not utter it though.

4.) Victor Frankenstein (Frankenstein)

Truly the monster, Dr. Frankenstein would not make a good companion. I’d probably be too scared of him trying to harvest my organs or something.

5.) Romeo (Romeo & Juliet)

Idiot. Horny. Selfish. Dumb. I wouldn’t be looking to make friends with Romeo or Juliet.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

With Mother’s Day comping up in just under a few weeks, it’s time to start thinking of some cool gift ideas for that special mom in your life.

We all know she deserves the best, so if she loves books, think about getting her these cool gift ideas.

#1 Book Scented Candles

Everyone who loves books love the smell of old books. I didn’t know this was a thing, but you can buy scented candles that smell like old books.

 

#2 Customized e-reader cases

E-readers are becoming more and more popular, and I’m sure some of your moms have them, and use them pretty often. You should think about getting her a customized e-reader cover, with a special message telling her how much you love her on it.

 

#3 Book of the Month Club

Has your mom run out of books to read? Or maybe she is always willing to read new books. If that’s the case, think about getting your mom a Book of the Month subscription. There are lots of different ones out there, so I’m sure it won’t be hard to find one your mom will enjoy.

 

#4 A personal Library Kit

If your mom prefers old-school books, she may want a personal library kit. Plus, if she likes giving books away to family and friends, this’ll help her collect those late fees.

 

#5 A Personalized Embosser

Books, gifts and letters convey more meaning and value when distinguished by your personal stamp. Get your mom a personalized embosser so she can put her own flare on her book collection.

My Top 5 Instagram Artists

The word artistic is one word that is never associated to me. I am far from artsy, and should steer clear of making art, for fear of ruining what the word means.

What I can do though, is appreciate some really wonderful artists that I enjoy, so I’ve made a Top 5 list of my favourite Instagram artists.

Before I start I will apologize now for all of the butchering of any and all artistic terms that will be found somewhere in this post, and if you have any suggestions for artists to take a look at, please let me know! I’m always looking for new accounts to explore. 

NUMBER 5: @albin_smaili97

Albin does some really amazing work creating anime themed art, and has a focus of doing different mashups for each piece. Another thing Albin likes to do is create the same picture, but in three different styles and each one of them looks distinct and cool in its own way.

He has a big focus on Naruto themed sketches, but does include some other anime and uses the same style. If you’re an anime fan I definitely recommend taking a look at Albin’s nice, what looks like pen, drawings. It’s a sort of ‘messy’ look, but when it’s all done it looks really cool.

Check out some of the awesome mashup art here.

 

 

NUMBER 4: @lulusketches

So as I found out, Laura (lulusketches) is an artist that works for Disney (dream job for many I assume) and creates some really spectacular pieces. Some scenery art, some character design, Laura creates some beautiful pieces of art you should definitely check out.

I don’t know the term for her type of art style, but its cartoonish and her use of colours truly mimic the real life they are eminating.

Explore her other wonderful creations here.

NUMBER 3: @jasricart

Jasric loves her her superheroes, and does a hell of a good job drawing them. Don’t get me wrong though, her superheroes are spectacular, but she does other pieces as well.

Whether it’s anime, comic book, or fantasy inspired, Jasric’s Instagram is a perfect platform to showcase her talent.

I don’t know what her art style would be called, but whatever it is, you can see her progression of some of her drawings, and she has gone from great to somehow even better

Check out her Instagram profile for some beautiful artwork.

 

 

NUMBER 2: @danielkordek

Daniel has got his subjects figured out on his Instagram page, and does a great job capturing them in his work.  There are some really gorgeous pieces, whether they are based on his own imagination or using a cartoon to base his drawing off of.

He has a lot of simplistic art pieces that are truly amazing to look at, and his pieces are a lot more tasteful than some other artists who have a similar style. There are some wonderful cartoon style drawing you should definitely check out.

Check out his wonderful art here. 

 

NUMBER 1: @megancrisp2424

I don’t know what this art style would be called, but I have always loved it, and Megan’s Instagram account is filled with it! The pieces are usually pretty simple, but it is in the simplicity that the beauty is found. Her art tends to have one main focus, taking up most of the picture, but the one subject is all you need to look at.

Megan has cute and adorable pieces and even some more serious ones. When I was looking at most of her pieces I could imagine it being from a cartoon or animated short film.

Check out Megan’s Instagram page here.

 

This isn’t an extensive list of the whole art community on Instagram, but just my favourite artists that I know about. I hope you enjoyed the list!
