~ #SixForSunday: Characters You Think Deserve A Holiday~

#SixforSunday is… it’s really just that. You choose 6 books (normally) that you’d choose to fit whatever the prompt is that week. This meme is hosted by A Little but a Lot and you can follow the link to find the prompts for January to March. I’ll also post this month’s prompt’s at the end of the post.

This week’s prompt: Characters You Think Deserve A Holiday

**My choices are in no particular order. You can click on their covers to explore their Goodreads entries.**

1. Cottage by the Sea Review

Annie experiences a horrific tragedy at the beginning of this novel. She has a lot of emotions to work through from this event and is one of the reasons I chose this character to deserve a holiday.

2. Lost in Translation – Review

Charlotte is “forced” to leave her comfortable life in the UK to move to Switzerland for her husband’s job. She experiences a lot of obstacles during her time there that are explored in the novel.

3. From Blood and Ash – Review

Poppy is going through life one way, but she starts to want more than just being the Maiden. She has a lot of learning experiences and discoveries throughout this novel. Her world gets turned upside down a lot with everything that happens to her and definitely deserves a nice relaxing vacation.

4. Nick Review

Nick’s story before the events in The Great Gatsby were not always pleasant. This character has an emotional journey in his life before his move to West Egg. A character that is well-deserving of a vacation based on the events he experiences.

5. The Little French Bistro Review

Marianne is stuck in a loveless marriage and is unhappy in her life. The novel is sort-of her taking her own vacation as she goes to a small French town to start over. Even with this, she still has a lot of obstacles that she has to overcome and is one of the reasons she ended up on this list.

6. The Song of Achilles – Review

My last pick for this week is Patroclus. A lot of his life revolves around Achilles and although he enjoys being around him, there are a lot of emotions that he goes through throughout the story. He is chosen as needing a holiday as he does a lot for Achilles and others, so it would be nice for him to get some time to himself to just relax.


March – Around the world in 80 books

7th – Books set in the country you live
14th – Books set elsewhere in the world
21st – Characters you think deserve a holiday
28th – Blue and green books

April – The Viper-inspired ones

4th – Books with snakes on the cover/in the title
11th – Magical books
18th – Fictional islands you’d like to visit
25th – Characters who would make great ships captains


This week’s topic was the most difficult for March as there are a lot of characters that deserve a holiday, but somehow my mind kept going blank when I was creating this post. I chose these six as they are the first six that came to mind as I was putting the post together. The explanations for exactly why I chose them were difficult, hence the reason they are short, as I did not want to reveal too much about the stories. I am curious to see what others choose for this topic as there are a lot of directions it can go and I love seeing what others write. Happy reading as we go into the fourth week of March!
