Kimberly's Picks

8. Willem De Rueter from Just One Year by Gayle Forman
Theatre is in this boy's soul! He's talented, and he LOVES the stage.

9. Franny Banks from Someday, Someday Maybe by Lauren Graham
This girl has all the love and passion a performer needs!

Julia's Pick:

10. Sebastian Grey in What Happens in London by Julia Quinn: So this isn't even his book but him performing dramatic readings from a romance novel of the time standing on a table is one of the scenes that stands out. He could totally act on stage!  

Tell us some of your favorite dancers, actors, singers, musicians, etc!


  1. I love your topic choice, and I'll have to check out some of those titles! I picked musicians for my focus - not so different, I guess!

  2. I haven't heard of any of these, what an interesting idea! I went a little off topic today due to current events. hope it's ok!

  3. Great list! I love Nastya from Sea of Tranquility.

  4. Fabulous list. Love Sea of Tranquility.

  5. Ooh, this would be really hard to answer! I've only read If I Stay, and I absolutely agree with those two :) Nice post!

  6. Love this - I actually only know Adam and Mia and Franny Banks and they are perfect picks for this. Some of the others I still need to get to - Love the list!

  7. This was an interesting topic for everyone. Lots of freedom to focus on what each person loves. Thanks for that!

  8. Fun topic! Novels, especially YA ones, are FULL of performing artists. It seems as if there's at least one in every teen novel I've read.

  9. Great topic, but I guess I wouldnt have been able to come up with ten character picks haha.

  10. I loved the free-for-all nature of this week's top ten. Yours are fun (I haven't read many of them I am intrigued.)

  11. Great list! Most of these are on my to read list. I have to sadly admit that I haven't read any yet. Thanks for hosting this weekly. Happy reading!!!!

  12. From The Witch Snitch Book Reviewer (http://witchsnitch.blogspot.com/):

Followed your blog. I would love if you stopped by mine and helped me get some traffic!
