TOP TEN TUESDAY: CHARACTERS I’D FOLLOW ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Top Ten Tuesday

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.

Miss Havisham

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.)

Winnie the Pooh by AA Milne

Possibly the world’s greatest philosopher. Winnie would bring sunshine into everyone’s day.

Emma

Emma by Jane Austen

Annoying, entitled but always entertaining. Follow Emma but run from her matchmaking attempts (he’s not as single as she says…)

Evelyn never does anything half-heartedly. Get ready for social media’s biggest star.
