Summer Personified
Each fictional character is unique in their own way but there are some of those sweet and cheerful ones whose goodness reminds you of summer. Make a list of characters who are truly summer personified.

  1. Daisy Calloway: I will fight anyone who says that Daisy from the Calloway Sisters / Addicted Series isn’t summer personified. Light, adventurous, and always positive–the girl is literally a ray of sunshine. You just can’t help but be in a good mood when she comes into the scene.
  2. Elain Archeron: Feyre literally describes Elain in ACOTAR as “the flower-grower, the gentle heart” to me at least, that screams spring/summer.
  3. Alice Cullen: Let’s be real, would it be a Bookend Event if ya girl didn’t mention Twilight somewhere (or ACOTAR if I’m honest)? Alice always has a pep in her step and is always hopeful, which really reminds me of those summer vibes where you don’t have school and your just…free. Alice reminds me of what it feels like to feel free.
  4. Knox Gentry: If you haven’t read the Locker Room by Meghan Quinn, you can read my review of it here and then hop to it, because Knox is Summer personified in a male body. Fun, outgoing, smart, and charismatic Knox will knock you off your feet with how Summer like he feels/is. UGH I HAVE NO WORDS.
  5. Simon Spier: Do I even have to explain how much Simon reminds me of summer? From his sassy ways, to his love of his friends, having a good time, and all around personal vibe–Simon makes my heart swoon during the summer months. I’m pretty sure he makes Blue swoon too! πŸ˜‰

    Elain is definitely summer personified, I hope Sarah has novels planned out for her and Lucian and Azriel BECAUSE GIRL!

    Aaaah Elain is definitely spring/summer personified, yassss to Alice as well. I’m not sure who I’d pick as summer personified honestly, possibly Mallory from the Some Girls Bite series, even though she has her erm moments *avoids spoilers cause I’m getting you to read the series and hopefully fall in love* but she’s such a happy and bubbly soul

    I only really know SImon (and Alice, but only from the movies) and i 100% agree with you! πŸ™‚ Also for me Percy Jackson screams summer, mainly because most of their adventures take place in the summertime

    No one is more summery than Elain to me!
    I agree with Simon too though I think he’s more spring than summer…

    oOOH I really approve of your choices! I remember Elain and wow she’s perfect for this prompt. Ang yesss Alice was always hands down my favourite character in Twilight 😍 And like maybe it’s just me but all Simons I’ve read about are such cuties and rays of sunshine πŸ’ž
    Love your post, Sam!

    Simon! So perfect! Hmmm I would say Jace reminds me of summer, as does Jacob Black, and Molly Weasley, mostly because that’s when she would show up in the books lol
