Top 5 Tuesday #39: F – G – H – I – J

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created and hosted by Shanah, the Bionic Book Worm, and now managed by Meeghan at Meeghan Reads.

This week’s topic:

F – G – H – I – J

(characters whose name begins with the featured letters)
I SUCK at remembering character names, so this will be tough.

F IS FOR…

Frank Longbottom

After a long time trying to think of a character whose name begins with this letter, Frank’s name was the only one to pop up, and that’s because the name “Frank” popped in my head and then I tried to think of a character I read about whose name is actually Frank.

Anyway, Frank Longbottom is Neville’s dad. I think we meet Neville’s parents for the first time in book five of the Harry Potter series when Harry and the Weasleys visit Mr. Weasley in St. Mungo’s.

G IS FOR…

Georgina Sparks

She’s from the Gossip Girl TV show. I have no idea if she appears in the books. I loved the show and attempted to read the book but couldn’t get into it.

Georgina is a troublemaker and tends to pop up whenever things begin to get “dull” (lol) on New York’s upper east side.

H IS FOR…

Kakashi Hatake

I saw the letter H and immediately though “Hatake.” I don’t even know how that name popped in my head because it’s been SO long since I watched Naruto. But now I want to start watching it again since I thought of it.

I’ve only seen a few episodes, but this dude quickly became one of my favorite characters. Actually, he was probably the only character I liked. He taught Naruto’s team.

I IS FOR…

Islanzadí

It’s blowing my mind that these random side characters who I haven’t thought of in a very long time keep popping up in my head. I blame Frank Longbottom because after forcing that name to the forefront of my mind, these others came out easily.

Islanzadí is the elf queen from Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle books — a fantasy series about a farm boy who becomes a dragon rider and saves the world from an evil dude. I don’t have much to say about Islanzadí. I think she pops up for the first time in the second book, Eldest.

J IS FOR…

Prince Jon

He’s Alanna’s (the protag) friend in Tamora Pierce’s Song of the Lioness books, which is about a girl (Alanna) who disguises herself as a boy to become a knight. I enjoyed reading these books. I liked Jon, but I much preferred George and liked how things turned out there.

THAT’S IT FOR ME.
LET ME KNOW IF YOU’VE READ ANY OF THESE.

    1. I never made it to the end and I’ve researched it many times. I don’t know why. I think it’s because I was told Dan is Gossip Girl and that just didn’t make sense to me, not really. And that he fell for Blair, which I didn’t like. I liked both characters but didn’t want it all to devolve into everyone hooking up with each other.
      Ugh! Now I feel like rewatching it again. Maybe I’ll get to the end this time.

        1. I think I saw that part where he died. Is that when he forgot who he was too, lost his memory or something? I think it’s around then I kinda stopped watching. Chuck is one of my favs too. Actually Chuck and Blair are my favs. Most entertaining. And Georgina sometimes. Who are yours?

  1. I loved Gossip Girl, but never got into the books either.
    I did also try reading Eragon when I was young and it didn’t stick too well either. Maybe it’s time to try again?!!
    Great list, and thanks for joining us!! 💕
