I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger love for characters! Each week she’ll supply a topic and you’ll supply the character. Post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on Thursday so YOU and others can blog hop and share the character love.
This weeks topic is High School First Love (Pick a character you’d want for your first love! Would it last forever or be a passing relationship?!)
Amanda- Rather than picking a smoking hot bad boy that I would have LOVED to date during high school, I’m going to pick someone that I would totally have actually dated while I was a high schooler. Ronald Bilius Weasley is absolutely my favorite character from the Harry Potter series. He is exactly the kind of person that I would have dated in high school. A little awkward. Smart but not super nerdy. Great sense of humor. A big crazy family that does all the fun family things. I’ve always had a special place in my heart for redheads.
Antonia- I was not good at dating in high school. I tended to jump into relationships too quickly then realize I wasn’t all that interested so my relationships were always really short. I’m going to choose a character that I WISH I dated in high school. Garret Xavier Sebastian from the Talon series by Julie Kagawa would have made an excellent first boyfriend. He’s mature, kind, and grounded in a way most high school boys aren’t. There’s no drama with him. He accepts Ember for who she is and gives her space when she needs it. He’s exactly the kind of guy I wish I’d dated in high school; I think he would have been a good influence on me.

Aw this is such a cute tag!
So fun! I love it becasue I feel like theres not a ton of character focused bookish posts!
Um, so this tag is brilliant and I am mad at myself for not hearing about it until now. *kicks self* I haven’t read Talon yet but Garret sounds like an awesome person. Ronald Billius Weasley is a gem. While I adore Rupert Grint, I feel like the movies misrepresented Ron. Being funny doesn’t mean that you are incapable of being supportive of your friends and family. But, then again, I also get mad at how Ron is shown in the epilogue of Deathly Hallows as well.
Isn’t this such a fun tag?! I haven’t seen any others that are character focused so I like this one because it really makes me think.
Great choices Amanda and Antonia! I LOVE the idea of Ron because he is a super awkward nerdy type (which I love too) and yet totally great boyfriend material! And Garret is a great choice too! I love how sweet he is and you’re so right about giving you the space you need… ❤️
