I tried to pick characters from a wide variety of genres and eras for this week’s prompt.


1. Sula by Toni Morrison

2. Mort (Discworld, #4) by Terry Pratchett

3. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

4. Oryx and Crake (MaddAddam, #1) by Margaret Atwood

5. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

6. Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

7. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain

8. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See

9. We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver

10. Artemis Fowl (Artemis Fowl, #1) by Eoin Colfer


  1. Great list! I loved Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, although I’ve really got to check out some of the other books on this list.

  2. I thought about doing this one. 🙂 Love the Twain pick!

  3. Anita@seriesbooklover says

    Interesting list

  4. Great choices! I love Mort.

  5. Can’t go wrong with including Pratchett! 🙂


  6. I almost put Rebecca on my list too!

  7. Great list. Rebecca is a favorite of mine. Been meaning to read Eleanor & Park for forever…some day I’ll get to it.

  8. I can’t believe I forgot so many of these from my own list–especially Romeo and Juliet! Great list 🙂

  9. I almost put Rebecca and Artemis Fowl on my list as well. I like that you chose a variety of genres. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  10. You sure did find a wide variety of characters! Nice list!

  11. I still need to read Artemis Fowl!! I own them all but haven’t picked them up.

  12. There’s definitely a nice variety of genres on this list. I’ve read REBECCA (not my fave) and SNOW FLOWER AND THE SECRET FAN (really liked).

    Happy TTT!


  13. Oh wow, Sula is a title I haven’t heard in ages. I remember studying that book and loving it in college. Great list!

  14. I have read six of the books on your list. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is one of my all time favorite novels. Thank you for sharing!

  15. I should have thought of Rebecca!

  16. Great list! Rebecca is definitely a popular title today and I’m very curious about Oryx and Crake 🙂

  17. I really want to read Artemis Fowl. Maybe I have to find a time to really read it someday.

    Great list!

  18. Wow, I have read #4 and 6-9 but didn’t choose any of them for my list. I think, this week we could have all found hundreds of titles.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT this week.

  19. Rebecca is a favorite of mine! I’ve noticed that not that many people actually used the classics. Good job!

    • Thank you. Yes, it’s not very common to discuss classic books during TTT, but I always enjoy it when people do. 🙂

  20. YAY for the shared “Rebecca” title and also, if I owned “Romeo & Juliet,” that’d have been a great one for my list! 🙂 Fun list and thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland on this week.

  21. Great list! I haven’t read any of these yet, but Eleanor and Park is on my TBR.
