Top Ten Tuesday #1: Minor Characters

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists! Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers' lists.

1. Jules from Die For Me by Amy Plum: He's awesome :) He's funny and kind, and I'm guessing there might be a love triangle emerging in the next book... ;)

2. Rue from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: She was SO CUTE! :D I loved her, and I was so upset... You know when, though I won't say for those who haven't read it yet :) And can I just say I think the girl who is cast for her in the movie is an awesome choice, looks-wise? :D

3. Alec and Magnus from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare: OK, technically that's two people, but they have to go together.. They're awesome! :) They should both be featured in the books more ;)

4. Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter by JK Rowling: Luna's crazy weird, and super cool! Need I say more? :L

5. Claire from Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini: She's an awesome friend :) She looks after Helen and makes sure she's OK, and is incredibly loyal and understanding. Who wouldn't want a friend like her? :D

6. Prim from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: She is also an awesome minor character from The Hunger Games. I love little sisters, they're so cute, especially when big sisters stick up for them, and make sure they're OK... :D

7. Cogon from Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder: I love the world that Maria V. Snyder created, and one of my favourite characters was Cogon! He was such a good friend to Trella, and I think it was nice that they weren't romantically involved, they were just super-good friends :D

8. Jenna from Wither by Lauren DeStefano: She is so sweet, and I love her! She has an enormous heart, and she really cared for Rhine and Cecily :) She's also very sad and troubled, and I felt sorry for her, but could kind of imagine how she felt... But not really. :L

9. Hana from Delirium by Lauren Oliver: Again,  like Claire, she was an awesome friend, and even though at times she could be a bit weird, she would always come back to support Lena :)

10. Christina from Divergent by Veronica Roth: And my last one is also an awesome friend, and quickly Christina became a good sidekick to Tris, and looked out for her all the time :)

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!

Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 

While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
