Ten Books With Characters That Love Arts

Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by the Broke and the Bookish

Some of you probably know that I'm a sucker for everything art-related. I love arts from music to drawing to dancing, eventhough I can do neither. That's why I'm going to list ten books with characters that love arts.

Bex, the MC, is a cadaver drawer (I don't know there's such thing until now), while her love interest, Jack, is a graffiti artist. Eventhough I haven't finished it, I could tell you that it's going to be one of my favorite!

2. Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
Haven't read this one, but I love the cover! Also, this book got tons of praise so I'd like to try it.

3. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
The MC, Mia, is a cellist that's about to go to Julliard before the accident that put her into coma.

4. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
Sydney's love interest, Ridge is a deaf singer-songwriter-guitarist (seriously, he's that talented).

5. The Hit List by Nikki Urang
You could probably guess from the cover that it's about dancing. The MC, Sadie, is a dancer that got paired to dance with the school's womanizer, Luke in the Fall Showcase.

6. The Trouble with Flirting by Claire Lazebnik
A retelling of Mansfield Park by Jane Austen, Franny is a girl who wants to join a theater program.

7. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Both Clary and her mother is a painter.

8. The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski
Kestrel and her mother (although only mentioned) are a talented pianist.

9. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Many of you already know this, but if you didn't know, Peeta is a painter.

10. The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
I actually didn't remember about Ronnie (the MC), but I do remember that her father is a talented pianist and teaches about it.

There must be a lot of books with characters that love arts, so if you know one, you can tell me in the comment. Also, don't forget to share your TTT!
