Could Elizabeth Bennett be witty in 280 characters or less? Would Becky Sharp go into debt to become an Insta influencer?
I struggled not to go overboard with this week’s challenge. We were asked to pick ten – that’s right, just ten – literary characters to follow on social media.
If you’d like to create your own list, give it a go. This feature was launched by The Broke and the Bookish and has been hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl since January 2018. To find out more simply visit the host website by clicking here.

Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams
Move over Bridget Jones. Queenie is a must-follow for everyone in the UK.
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Why torment Estella when there are thousands of wedding planners to troll online? (Let’s hope she also finds a social media support group at the same time.)

This enterprising social climber would be the ultimate Insta influencer.
