Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, and feature lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to find bloggers that love the books you do. 268 more words
Penny. Normally Penny isn’t a name that would automatically inspire me. But this Penny is so quiet about her humor and about her sense of self. But her strength is a hundred dollar bill.
Emma. I absolutely adore this name. I think because I absolutely adore this character. She’s so concerned about others yet quiet about her own desires. I was so happy to see her win.
Esperanza. She is the quiet one, “the one nobody comes for.” Yet she wages a silent war and is “the one who leaves the table like a man without putting back the chair or picking up the plate.”
Elizabeth Clarry. She runs a half-marathon. Maybe this is why I like her. Or maybe it’s because she has so many people chiming in on her life and she somehow finds her way.
Macy. She falls in love with Wes, which just happens to be the name of my very first (and best) boyfriend. Her confidence is quiet at first, but she stands up for herself and learns to fit in with a bunch of strangers. I admire that.
