Meme & list (Most Realistic Characters)

We've had some tags. They were starting to pile up.

One from Melissa:
"Six things that make me unquestionably, blissfully happy":
1. mail
2. good ice cream
3. kisses from an 8 month old
4. kisses from that baby's dad
5. Wodehouse
6. great books!
* please note the raindrops on this rose.

One from Heather:
"Think of and post a comprehensive list of who are some of the most real characters you’ve ever encountered and why."

Sorry, no dice. I just can't promise a comprehensive list. But I will name some of the characters that I wouldn't be surprised to find walking around. Heck, these are the one's I'm surprised I haven't met yet. Realistic fiction at its most real:

  • Rose Casson (author Hilary McKay)
  • Indigo Casson (same)
  • Oh heck let's just say all the Cassons (see above, obv.)
  • Uncle Jack (Everything on a Waffle by Polly Horvath)
  • Reuven Malter (The Chosen by Chaim Potok)
  • Frankie Landau-Banks (E. Lockhart)
  • Anne of Green Gables (L.M. Montgomery)
  • The March Girls (Louisa May Alcott)
  • Levin (Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy)
  • Severus Snape (J. K. Rowling)
  • Everyone in The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (Mary Ann Shaffer)

Okay that's all I have the stamina for. Anyone want to add to our (not comprehensive) list?


  1. Wodehouse makes me happy, too. As does good ice cream. And I agree: the Cassons are realistic fiction at its most real. How about adding Anne (of Green Gables) to the list? Or the March girls?

  2. excellent suggestions melissa! Also I realized later that if someone sent me a great Wodehouse book in the mail, and I read it after kisses from my boys and with a bowl of good ice cream, I could do all the things in my happy list at once!

  3. The characters of "The Guernsey Literary and Potato ..." book. All of 'em. And Severus Snape from "Harry Potter." That's all that comes to mind at the moment.

  4. Oooh yes, Severus definitely. And I didn't even think of touching the old classics! The March sister, I completely agree with. Thank you so much for responding to this Alysa.

  5. Excellent, excellent. I meant to put the cast of TGLAPPPS, Ashley, thanks for reminding me.
