Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Last week there was a very interesting and fun topic that I missed and I thought I’d highlight today: Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On a Deserted Island.

There are tons and tons of male characters I love and, as always, it’s very difficult for me to choose…But here are those characters I’m sure they’d be of great company on a deserted island… *ahem* 😉

Today I want to share some of my favorites with you :
