top 5 wednesday is a weekly challenge where you can pick your top 5 for the topic of the week. you can find more information about it on goodreads.
this weeks topic is: characters’ fitness routines you want
this can be interpreted a bunch of different ways! fitness comes in many different packages. this can be about characters who are super fast, strong, agile, good at dancing, good at climbing, athletes, or foodies! whatever it means to you. this is inspired by those routines you see in magazines for actors, but with more of an open mind and less body shaming
so, let’s just be honest with ourselves. i am not the biggest fitness person. the most sports i do is turning around while reading 😀 no, it’s not that bad, but i am really not the biggest sports person. so therefore, i’ll choose characters, that are way better than me 😀
1.) “nevernight” by jay kristoff
did you see, what mia corvere can do? that girl is so badass. not only as a person, she has also amazing skills and does what she thinks she needs to do! i mean, she’s attending a school for assassins. i think you couldn’t get more fit than there. 😀
2.) “catching fire” by suzanne collins
the skills these kids have in this series are amazing. i am specifically talking about katniss everdeen and finnick odair here because i love them 😀 “catching fire” is my favorite book of the series and i love how katniss and finnick work together, become friends and fight everything and everyone who comes their way!
3.) “six of crows” by leigh bardugo
i had to include inej ghafa in this list. inej is another female badass character whom i love very much. she is known as “the wraith” and she sometimes is invisible, at least that’s how it feels like. she can climb and get to places no one else can. and she doesn’t make a sound, which makes her the perfect spy.
4.) “a gathering of shadows” by v.e. schwab
i think i have a theme here 😀 i guess i like badass female characters haha. but i mean, come on. lila bard. that girl. first of all she is a thief, a very, very good thief, which is a bad skill, but it’s a skill she’s really good at. but then in the second book “a gathering of shadows” she can do so much more. i am just saying this: elements!
5.) “outlander” by diana gabaldon
james alexander malcom mackenzie frasier. yes! this man! maybe he doesn’t have the greatest skills, but this guy is a very strong man and he can fight. and he can take. a lot. he’s going to do everything for the people he loves and that counts for so much more! ❤
so these were my character choices. what do you think? who is missing here and who would you choose? let me know! 🙂
