A Family I Want To Join

The Weasley’s are, of course, the obvious answer. Who wouldn’t want Molly to mother them, or to have prank wars with the twins, or get cool trips to Charlie’s workplace?

For the sake of not being boring, though, I’m choosing a second family too. I love the Walsh’s, from 5 of Marian Keyes’ books. These 5 girls are the best, greatest, funniest family you could ask for. They include Helen, the creator of the amazing Shovel List shown below. Sure, they come with a lot of baggage, but I think I can forgive that! Also, they’re Irish, which is my all time favourite accent, and a place I’d love to visit. So a win-win, right?

I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!

  1. Definitely would want be a Wesley family member too, even if adapted like Harry was.
    I’m not sure if I read any of the Walsh family books but I did try one book by Keyes and wasn’t that impressed.
