  2. Fun topic! I so admire people with special talents, especially musical ones since I have NONE.

    Happy TTT!

  3. Nice topic choice! I love Ronan, the whole being able to pull objects out of dreams thing is so cool!

  4. This was a fun one! So many great picks - my favorites from here are Cath, Cricket and Mia because I loved those books so much. Great list!

  5. Great list. I love so many of those characters. Mia from If I Stay and Mara from the Mara Dyer series are a couple of my favorites.

  6. Loved that you did 10 A-C, ;)
    I also liked that you included the talent (sometimes people don't, and I have to google it if I haven't read the book!)
    I would love to be able to pull things out of my dreams (money, chocolate cake, clothes, other things . . .) I haven't actually read the Raven Cycle, but they're on my list.

  7. Very interesting! You have a nice variety of normal and paranormal characters listed here. I've had the first book of The Raven Cycle for quite a while but have yet to pick it up. I might have to do that soon!

  8. This was a really fun topic! And I love how diverse these talents are... I've never thought about it before. A lot of these characters are favorites of mine - Ronan, Mia, Cath, Cricket... great list!

  9. Oh this was a cool topic to do for TTT! The only one i've read is if I stay!! I've got to get to some of these other books!

  10. ARG! I still need to read Fangirl. It is seriously just SITTING on my shelf!
