#ShelfLove Challenge 2016: February Post

February's #ShelfLove Challenge question is: Who is you book boyfriend/girlfriend/best friend? What qualities does this character have that makes him/her the best?

This is a tough one, because I don't get attached to book characters the way some people do. I never dreamed of being Bella so I could have Edward (and yes, I did know someone like that lol, and no, I was Team Jacob anyway).So I went the best friend route- and the only character that came to my mind was Jessica Darling from the Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty. The books are set roughly around the same time I was in high school, so the world events and pop culture references are very relevant to me. Plus, Jessica reminds me of my best friend from high school, Liz. Jessica is very smart, driven, athletic and sarcastic- which was pretty much Liz. All the supporting characters were people we knew in high school, just with different names. Reading those books is like reading about me and Liz, and I love that. Sadly, my relationship with Liz fell apart after she went away for college and I stayed here. But every time I read one of those books, I feel like I'm friends with her again, and that's something that's hard to find in a series.

Who would your book bestie or boyfriend/girlfriend be? Let me know in the comments below!!

Books Read Update: I haven't read any books from my TBR pile yet. Well, Side Effects May Vary was one, but I don't  know if I can count it because I started it in December and finished in January.

  1. Ooh great way to take this prompt. Sad when awesome friendships change after people move away but it is cool that you found a bookish character that reminds you of your friend.

  2. Losing her as friend was very hard on me, but having this series was kind of a comfort. So maybe I do get attached to characters, just not in the way other people do lol.


I look forward to reading your words of wisdom. Don't freak out if you don't see your comment right away, I do moderate :) Thanks!
