Top 5 Wednesday is exactly what it sounds like; a Top 5, every wednesday. It was created by Ginger reads Lainey and is now hosted by Thoughts on Tomes. The HQ are on the Goodreads Group if you’d like to join !
In most books I read, the main character is, like, THE BEST in something. Or super talented. We all have our talents (except for me. I just read 😂) And we all wish we knew how to do things half as well as the characters we read about.
I’ll be listing classes I’d love to take, based on characters of books I’ve read and loved! Hope you like what you read 💙
1. Deduction & Cracking Cases | Charlotte Holmes
I want to learn from Charlotte SO badly how to deduce everything from anything, how to sort what information to observe and file, and what can be safely forgotten. It would come in really handy in pretty much every situation. I know I probably won’t be called to solve any murders, but we can’t all be Holmeses xD
2. Street Smarts | Kaz Brekker
The very mention of Kaz’s name makes me want to explode from fangirling and then get myself back together and explode again. *struggles for self-control*
I mean, Kaz’s survival skills in Ketterdam ? MINDBLOWING. The more you learn about him the more you see it for yourself *sob* if I could learn kick-ass street smarts, I’d never be in need 😎
3. How to Fix Pretty Much Anything | Cinder
Like I said, my life would be a few times easier if I could absorb some skills from books by osmose, or take any one of these classes. *sigh* if I could just fix my stuff as easily as Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles. She’s, like, super good with mechanics. Yeah, I know it’s because she’s a cyborg and she didn’t have to learn it from scratch like us peasants #notfair, I WANNA DO THAT TOO what the heck?!
4. War Strategy 101 | Darrow
If I ever took this class, I’d take over the world before you can say ‘cake’ 😂 Darrow is one of the smartest characters of all books I ever read. In the last book of the trilogy, Morning Star, he blew my mind in a way I will never forget. He is just near and dear to my heart 💙
5. Heart of Stone | Kvothe
Ever since I read The Name of The Wind, I can NOT stop thinking how much I want to learn Heart of Stone. It is a method to strengthen your mind and be ready, collected, and stoic through any hardship that comes in your way. There is also that super cool thing of splitting your mind in two, like playing Dungeons and Dragons against yourself and actually making it work. But Heart of Stone strikes me as something I’d need more often.
Ugh there are so many more classes I’d be so so sooo taking if I could, but 5’s the limit, and it’s, like, midnight now and my eyes are totally calling it a day without my permission. So, time for your feedback !
Have you read one or more of these books ? Would you come to these classes with me if you could ? What are some classes YOU’d love to take ?
