Top Ten Tuesday – Double Trouble

Posted February 22, 2022 by elzaread in Top Ten Tuesday / 36 Comments

Greetings Humans! It’s Tuesday and time to have some fun with Top Ten Tuesday hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Dynamic Duos and apparently we can interpret that any way we like. Ha. That’s my favorite fun.

An occurrence you don’t see all that often in the feline world, is twins. Or in the sense you humans look at twins. Most of us adorable felines are born from a whole litter of kittens and having only one kitten is the exception to the rule. In humans it’s the other way around. So for today’s TTT, we are going to look at twins in books.

  • Fred and George Weasley from the Harry Potter series (who just had to wipe a tear away?)
  • Cersei and Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones (a relationship that even dogs will thrown upon if you ask me)
  • Viola and Sebastian from Twelfth Night (call us dorky, but we liked the She’s the Man adaptation the most)

 

 

  • Lisa and Lottie from the Parent Trap (never read the book, but we did see both adaptations and loved it)
  • Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum from Alice in Wonderland
  • Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen from Two of a Kind (you won’t believe how popular these books still are in my Mommy’s library at school)

 

 

  • Alec and Jane Volturi from the Twilight Saga
  • Sam and Eric from Lord of the Flies
  • Two Little Girls in Blue by Mary Higgins Clark (there isn’t an adaptation as far as we know)
  • Magnus and Clarissa Pie in Magpie Murders (please tell me someone is planning to bring this book/series to the big or small screen?)

 

Did we forget any famous or not so famous twins in literature? Please let us know if you can think of any we missed today.

Happy TTT and enjoy the rest of your week!

      My Grandma was a twin and I was pregnant with twins 5 years ago! Unfortunately, you know the story… Still love the phenomenon of twins though!

    • elzaread

      Oh don’t get me started. There are so many twisted scenarios in Game of Thrones. Very glad it’s not my reality.

      Thanks for stopping by Greg!

      I have never read the Mary-Kate and Ashley books, but I know that it’s still very popular at school.

      Fred and George are the best twins for sure!

    • elzaread

      Hi Lydia! I’ve never actually read any of the Mary Kate books, but I do know that it’s still very popular.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      Hi Emma! I haven’t read any but The Night Circus (that I can’t believe I forgot about!!!) The Thirteenth Tale is on my TBR and I actually think on my Kindle as well, gosh I need to read it.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      Hi Cindy! I’ve actually grown up with Mary Higgins Clark’s books and as soon as my Mom said I am old enough to read them, I started reading them. I’ve read Two Little Girls in Blue not so long ago again and yes, it’s a good one.

      Thanks for paying us a visit!

    • elzaread

      I’ve actually never seen any! Maybe I should just take one of the books and see what all the fuss is about.

      Thanks for stopping by Alicia!

  1. I love so many of these! Fred and George (I shed several tears, every time!) are a great pick–and what a throwback for Mary-Kate and Ashley! I love that their books are still popular now 🙂

    • elzaread

      I’ve just missed the Mary-Kate and Ashley craze, but some of the younger teachers at school loves the fact that the books are still so popular with the youngsters.

      So sorry for the late reply!!

      Hi Jen, gosh I can’t believe I am only replying now. Where does time fly to? I want to go as well!

      Inspiration is like lightning with me – it only struck once and and here at the cost, few and far between! LOL!!

    • elzaread

      Hi Viday! So sorry I only reply now! Some how I’ve slipped up with a few comments over the last two weeks. I’ve read the first 3 books in the GOT series, but only watched the first one. My husband watched and loved them all.

  2. Oh this is an awesome twist on the topic. I can imagine some of these books like the Olsen book still being popular. There aren’t that many twins in books, especially not center stage.

    • elzaread

      Hi Annemieke, so sorry for the terribly late reply! My bad!! Yes, twins are always a good theme in a book, but there aren’t a lot around. Olsen twins are about all I can think of that I have in the school library. Except for Harry Potter and the Weasley twins of course.

    • elzaread

      Can you believe how late I am to replying to this!!! My next TTT is out already….!! So sorry!!

      Yes, Fred and George are the best twins ever. Now I cry again too….

  3. Super fun spin on this topic! I never thought to look up characters list this. 🙂 Loved The Parent Trap growing up, definitely one of those films on repeat at my house! Apologies it took me so long to visit here, but thanks so much for visiting on this week over on Finding Wonderland.
