Top of the Heap!

Ah, our wonderful siblings. Those people who know what we're thinking or doing even when we don't want them to. Sneaky, loving, competitive, annoying, playful- they take on so many interesting attributes, and we get to be related to them for as long as we're here! Lizzy and I thought it would be fun to shout out to some of our favorite story broods. So, here's to all the brothers and sisters out there! Now, it's my turn☺

This week's top of the heap: Best story broods 

Fairday: I have to shout out to Gregor and Boots from the Gregor the Overlander series by Suzanne Collins. Boots just cracks me up, and I see so much of my little sister, Margo, in her. Gregor cherishes his little sister, and always tries to protect her. But, Boots has a natural ease with her surroundings, and in the end, usually ends up pointing him in the right direction. After all, she is the princess of the crawlers!

Lizzy: There are so many fabulous sibling relationships in the books I read. When I look at the brothers and sisters that I would like to be a part of, I can’t help but think of the Weasleys. Ginny, Ron, Fred, George, Percy, Charlie, and Bill are each so interesting and their interactions show their love and respect for each other. It would be a blast to be a part of their family and share their inside jokes and traditions. I especially enjoy the way Ginny holds her own with all of her older brothers. She has such a strong spirit and a unique relationship with each brother. Of course, the banter and complex relationships between the boys is also amazing. Still, Ginny learns to be her own person, but each of her brothers play a role in shaping who she is and what she believes. The Weasleys are a family that I would join in a heartbeat!


"The thing about growing up with Fred and George is that you sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve." 
-- Ginny Weasley

  4. That's such a great quote there by Ginny. The Weasley's are one of the great siblings in fiction out there. Out of the top of my head I would have to say Daphne and Sabrina Grimm-The Grimm Sisters.

  5. I love the Weasleys too but probably my favourites are Julian, his younger brother Dick and sister Anne from Enid Blyton’s Famous Five books. I grew up wishing they were my brothers and sister!
