Won't You Be My Neighbor

Every Wednesday, YA Highway asks their readership a simple question to answer on your blog. Once you answer, you link your blog in the comments for other readers to hop on board. This is Road Trip Wednesday. 

Today's question: Which book character would you like most as a next door neighbor?

Bella Swan! She's so perfect and smart and charming and has a perfect sense of self.

Wait, she's none of these things?

*shrugs* Moving on.

My taste in neighbors has changed in recent years. When I was in college (still living at home and for the most part desperately single), all I wanted was a hot single neighbor that D and I could silently drool over and make lame attempts at conversation. If there was an accent, all the better. Now, as a quasi-adult with a husband and 2 children cats, I just want someone amicable that goes to the same gym*.
College Alicia's Choices
Ray Caine, the rock star from the Glory St. Clair books. He's hot, sings, and has an accent since he's not from Boston. He's a vampire, but sometimes that happens.

Jace from The Mortal Instruments series. He's hot. He's a bad boy. I would definitely do a lot of staring**.

Present Day Alicia's Choices
Vicky Austin as an adult. I would've loved having her as a bestie in school, so it's pretty safe to say that Adult Vicky would be pretty awesome too.

Jessica Darling. Maybe. We'd either become awesome friends or I would plot ways to let the air out of her tires. Though, if she lived in the same building as me, we would definitely bond over the commonality of how we would move, but the rent is so cheap.

Has your choices for a neighbor changed over the years?
