Happy Solar Eclipse Day!
Today is the day in which the solar eclipse is happening at approximately 1:15 pm CST over in my area, and both Lupe and I are in the DIRECT path. We also discovered my mother is no fun, so while Lupe gets the grand experience, I get the dark experience thanks to the window in my room.
In honor of this fabulous day, I’m here to list ten characters/couples I would love to watch the Solar Eclipse with if I could.
Lucy from Imperfect Chemistry by Mary Frame
I’m 99% sure Lucy would talk everything science about the solar eclipse, but I’m probably not going to complain.
Bee and Levi from The Color Project by Sierra Abrams
Because I can, and because I will.
Kaz and Inej from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Of course, I’m including my ship from SoC!
Genie and Quentin from The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee
Yee is getting a lot of spotlights here on the blog, and I definitely won’t complain because his debut novel is simply amazing and hilarious and you should totally get the book if you haven’t yet. Other than protecting us from all the demons possibly lurking around here, both Genie and Quentin will be a hilarious pair to have along.
Hey! It’s Lupe, and here I am crashing Sophia’s post an hour before this post goes live! I’m still a procrastinator, can’t you tell? MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Sophia: I’VE BEEN HIJACKED.
Yes, I was fortunate enough to buy some glasses a month before so I wouldn’t have to stress about where to find them at the last minute. I’m very worried about the traffic. I saw tons of cars coming from other states into the state of Missouri, such as Texas. Did I tell you it’s also my first day back to class? I’m glad I have a nice two-hour break where I will be able to watch the Eclipse. NO. I swear I did not plan this!
In other words… Here are whom I would like to see the Eclipse with! Some of these SHOULD NOT BE A SURPRISE if you knew me very well. I know that side-eye, Sophia. I’m watching you too.
Sophia: I have done no such side eyeballing.
The Whole Crew from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
I honestly thought about which specific character I want, but I just can’t choose! I want Dimitri, Rose, Lissa, Mason, and Christian! It would be an amazing time! I could already imagine the crazy stuff they would say! It would suck for Lissa and Christian being tortured under the sun, but hey, it would get dark so they will be able to experience it!
Sophia: And then they burn.
Sydrian from Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
Do I need to explain more? Sydney would give me bomb info about the eclipse while Adrian keeps me entertained with his wit. What more could I honestly ask for? Adrian would have to suck it up though since he is not able to handle the hot sun for long, but hey, he can survive here where I am in the path of totality!
Kenji from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
I JUST CAN’T LEAVE MY BOY KENJI out in this post. He is one of the reasons why the series is great. He has the best sense of humor and his commentary would be bomb during the Eclipse. I also need someone that will complain with me about the nightly creatures coming out when it’s getting darker. He will be a phenomenal companion.
