Whose Tweets would you follow?

The YA Highway is a great blog. If you're a fan of YA and you're not reading it you should check it out. They have a fun weekly meme and this week I thought I'd join in.

The question is

If literary characters had twitter accounts, whose tweets would you follow?

Well I love tweets that make me smile. All these characters have made me laugh out loud with their witty remarks, snarky dialogue and unique views.

Audrey from Audrey Wait by Robin Benway

Sophie from Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Ruby from The Ruby Oliver books by E. Lockhart

Jamie from The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan

Poe from The Secret Society Girl books by Diana Peterfreund (I doubt he'd have a Twitter account though, although Amy might make him)

Who would you follow?


  1. I haven't read any of those books! *runs off to add to Goodreads list*

  2. Melissa Marr
    Carrie Ryan
    Jackson Pearce
    Chloe Neill

    I follow those tweets

  3. E. Lockhart writes some great characters - their tweets would rock!

  4. Great list - you aren't the only one who mentioned Sophie!

  5. I haven't read any of these books yet either, but all of them come highly recommended. :)

  6. huh, i've never thought of this before! uhmmm maybe Hassan from An Abundance of Katherines, he'd be a riot.
    Francesca :) and Tom and that psycho tara finke (and all the other MM characters)
    Grover from Percy Jackson
    Scarlett from Suite Scarlett
    Fred and George! "just turned percy into a turnip. another day at WWW..." I can dream xp

    i think they'd just tweet funny things :) Totally agree with Audrey from Audrey Wait too. This was an awesome post!

  7. Oh, Jamie! I completely forgot about him! I liked him too. He was my second favorite character in the book, Alan being the first. I'll have to check out the rest of the books you mentioned though.

  8. Great question!

    I'd add:
    Anne of Green Gables
    Bilbo - although they'd probably all be about food :)

  9. 幸福是人人都要,又怎麼可能都歸你所有?要知道這世界幸福本來就不多........................................

  10. I am SOOOOO behind on my reading. *adds to shopping list*

  11. Eugenides from Megan Whalen Turner's "Thief" series
    Anne Shirley from L.M. Montgomery's "Anne" books
    Howl from Diana Wynne Jones' "Howl" series
    Enna from Shannon Hale's "Goose Girl" series
    Ella from Gail Carson Levine's ELLA ENCHANTED (it would totally make her curse not so bad if her writing wasn't under the curse, too!)
    Oh, I'd have so much fun doing this!!! I'll stop here, though. :)

  12. Ooh some great, great suggestions from all of you!

  13. I love it that you picked Poe - and I agree Amy would probably pester him until he made an account and they would probably be all snarky and obscure references. But I echo another commenter that I'd love to read Scarlett's texts from The Suite Scarlett books.

  14. Oh...that is some nice topic. Well, on the top of my head it would have to be:

    1. John Galt from Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
    2. Howard Rourke from The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
    3. Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
    4. Any character from Quo Vadis by Henrik Senkevich

    Oh, I can think of so many more but I will stop here now.
