It’s the second day of Bookending Summer! The sun is shining brightly, the birds are chirping and my skin has cleared. Okay so the sun may be shining too brightly to the point I am blinded and the birds might just be annoying pigeons but just take my word that it’s a good summer day for me to be writing my second post for Bookending Summer.
Bookending Summer has a vague theme of Ocean, Beach, Vacations, Contemporaries (you know…Summer) and aims to bring the book blogging community together and is hosted by two of my friends Clo and Sam. There’s still time to check it out if you are interested to join in 🙂
Each fictional character is unique in their own way but there are some of those sweet and cheerful ones whose goodness reminds you of summer. Make a list of characters who are truly summer personified.
5 CHARACTERS WHO ARE SUMMER PERSONIFIED
Alex from RED WHITE AND ROYAL BLUE
Alex is such a hopeful little bi boy trying to follow his heart. He just gives off those cheerful and happy vibes as he tries to think the best for his friends and family as well as his country and state. Every time I try to imagine his face I see the grinning smiley emoji 🙂
Sweetie from THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT SWEETIE
Sweetie Nair, like her name is the sweetest, friendliest and warmest person you’ll ever find! She can melt your heart in seconds, the author couldn’t have given her a better name.
Tanner from AUTOBOYOGRAPHY
Tanner from Autoboyography is such a chaotic yet soft bi boy! Okay I might have a type for this prompt…
He’s just moony eyed when it comes to Sebastian and is always hopeful and cheery about their future, at least on the outside.
August from A THOUSAND PERFECT NOTES
Okay this whole prompt was literally modeled after August from A Thousand Perfect Notes because I’ve never read about such a sunshine-y character! Absolutely nothing can get this girl down? She’s just so positive and happy I swear she has a sunflower instead of a head.
Kai from SUMMER BIRD BLUE
Kai from Summer Bird Blue has a warm personality that just makes me feel so happy! Despite having his own troubles he’s just so nice and friendly towards Rumi and legit everyone else. Kai also has that lazy calm vibe meaning he’s not in a rush and I don’t know that just reminds me of lazy summer days 🙂
Do you agree with my choices? Which characters are summer personified for you? Do you have any friends in real life who are summer personified? What qualities do you think a character who gives summer vibes should have?
