Top Ten Tuesday: Inspirational Characters

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish!  Don’t forget to check out their great site!

This week’s topic is: Rewind!  We can choose any past topic.  So I decided on Inspirational Characters.  Here are just a few characters that inspire me:

1. Toby from The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood. 

2. Dustfinger, Moe, and Meggie from the Inkheart books by Cornelia Funke.  I figured I’d put them all together since they’re all in the books together 🙂

3. Corrigan from Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann

4. Shogo from Battle Royale by Koushun Takami.  LOVED him.

5. Maerad from The Books of Pellinor by Allison Croggon, because she never stops trying.

6. Liesel from The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak

7. Manuel from Gouverneurs de la rosee by Jacques Roumain

8. Catherine from Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes

9. Leslie from Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson

What characters do you think were inspirational??


About Kelly

Hi! My name’s Kelly. I’m a twenty-something gal from Buffalo, NY. Mom to a little dog named Peabody and a slightly evil cat named Archie. Engaged to the best dude ever. I love books and craft beer! I also love all things France and francophone and have a degree in French Language and Literature from Buffalo State College. My blog used to be called Kelly’s France Blog, but I finally decided it needed a change because I wasn’t posting about French things nearly as often as I used to! You can still see all my imported posts on A Book and a Beer, or you can visit my original blog at
