RTW: A cup of sugar, please?

Each week, YA Highway hosts Road Trip Wednesday, a blog carnival in which YA Highwayers discuss a topic on their blogs and invite readers to do the same. This week's RTW topic is:

Which book character would you like most as a next door neighbor?

I want neighbors who will wave hello but not trap me for an hour-long conversation right when I pull in the driveway; neighbors who will keep an eye on my house, but aren't super nosy; neighbors like:

Neville Longbottom, HARRY POTTER

Neville is quiet and minds his own business, but he's also brave and virtuous. He won't let baddies — Muggle or wizard — sneak in my window. And as a Hogwarts professor, think of all the interesting dinner parties he'd have!

Anna Oliphant, ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS

Anna is smart, funny, and loves to go to the movies! Plus, she already has a best friend and a boyfriend, so she'd be as busy as me and not complain if we couldn't hang out all the time.

Scarlett and Rosie March, SISTERS RED

These girls are not only kick-butt, they like baking and watching movies, too. And as president of the Neighborhood Watch, Scarlett would protect our 'hood from stray Fenris. Between her and Neville, I'm living in an evil-wizard-and-werewolf-free-zone, folks!





Which book character would you pick as your next door neighbor?

Didn't even think about Neville! YES. And I totally thought I was already following you! Clicking now...

Alicia Gregoire said...

Good arguments there and I love how you picked Neville.

Sarah Enni said...

YES. That is one awesome neighborhood!

Bailey Hammond said...

Haha! Neville was on my list too! As were Luna Lovegood, Hermione and Ron, Harry and Ginny, and Professor Dumbledore. :) Love it!

Ellen said...

YAY Neville. Tell me if he and Luna get together. BECAUSE THEY SHOULD. ahem. what? Sorry, repressed desires... >.>

The Blue Lipstick Samurai said...

Um, greatest neighborhood EVER?! Oh Neville. Oh baking. Oh movies.

Caitlin said...

Anna FTW! She would be such a great neighbour. Not snarky or annoying, and helloooo movie dates. And Neville would be so quiet! Great choices!

Pam Harris said...

Yay to Anna! She's the coolest. :)

Marquita Hockaday said...

I'm making my way through Anna and the French Kiss right now and Anna and I would totes be best friends. She had me at her love for movies! And I was thinking about saying the March sister, too! Silas was also on my short list.

Bohemienne said...

Okay, I've been meaning to read SISTERS RED, but the fact that they bake is the added incentive I need. :D Good choices!

Rebecca B said...

I like your reasoning--I want neighbors who won't conversation-trap me, too. I love Anna Oliphant, esp. if she would make me chocolat chaud. :)

Tracey Neithercott said...

If you kick Anna out of the neighborhood, maybe you can have Etienne all to yourself. Protection from Neville and Scarlett and a hot boyfriend with an accent? You win.

Katy said...

Neville would be a fantastic neighbor! And Anna... she's so cool and real. Great picks, Abby!

brandimziegler said...

Haha I LOVE Neville. My pick was Finnikin from Melina Marchetta's FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK

Leila Austin said...

I'm waiting in an incredibly long library queue for Anna and the French Kiss at the moment! From what everyone has said it sounds like a completley charming book :-)

And Neville! I hadn't thought of Neville! He'd be both considerate and intriguing at the same time.

I wish I could have Neville as a neighbor, he is just too awesome.

Read my books; lose ten pounds! said...

I've seen a lot of Harry Potter love, but not Neville yet! I wouldn't mind going to his dinner parties.
