Hey there! This week I’m participating in Six for Sunday, a meme hosted by Steph at A Little But a Lot. This week’s topic is:
1. Eva – The Book of Lost Names
During World War II, Eva joins the resistance and forges documents to help children flee Nazi occupied Germany while still fining a way to preserve their real names. She is so brave and super clever and heroic!
2. Beetee – The Hunger Games Series
Beetee is from Dictrict 3 and is considered one of the brightest minds in all of Panem. He first appears in Catching Fire and is also in Mockingjay. Beetee is super intelligent and comes up with a lot of clever devices and ideas.
3. Nancy Drew from Nancy Drew Mystery Stories
Nancy Drew is intelligent, clever, and a great mystery-solver. Plus, she always got entangled in some pretty serious situations, yet kept a cool head. I enjoyed her curious nature and how she always figured out even the most challenging mysteries.
4. Cecelia Teague – All Scot and Bothered
I love Cecelia! She is smart, determined, and often underestimated. Her optimism and zest for life are fantastic, as is her cleverness. She is a quick-witted mathematician who uses her intellect to solve crimes, decode mysterious books, and help people in need.
5. Edith Graham – Miss Graham’s Cold War Cookbook
After World War II, Edith works for the government as a spy. She pretends to be a cookbook author for a popular magazine, and she embeds military intelligence within her recipes. She knew they would go unnoticed because, being a woman and a cook boook author, she was underestimated. Pretty clever!
6. Kaz Brekker – Six of Crows
Kaz is the mastermind behind an amazingly complex and clever heist, which is the focus of Six of Crows. Kaz is one of the most clever and complicated characters I’ve read about in recent years.

Clever- literally, that word can apply to all of my Fairy Frogs. One of the characteristics of Fairy Frogs is cleverness.
The Book of Lost Names is on the very top of my tbr. I’ve came across it a couple weeks ago and ever since have been waiting not so patiently for my copy. Also the reviews have been AMAZING so far!!!

Oooh, I hope you get to read it soon! It’s such a captivating story, and I loved Eva! 🙂
I thought of putting Kaz in this week’s topic but thought that he might fit in better for one of the topics later in the month.
Here’s mine http://bookwormsanonymous.blog/2020/09/06/sixforsunday-clever-characters/
I might use him again! lol
I agree – Nancy Drew and Beetee are very clever characters ❤️
This is such a great list! I have to agree with rue and Nancy drew haha. I tried this prompt, but didn’t get much inspiration so I changed to hp characters that deserved better (because there’s so many 😡) https://hundredsandthousandsofbooks.blog/2020/09/06/s4s-harry-potter-characters-that-deserved-better/
Nice! There are so many that deserved better. I’ll go check it out! 🙂
I love your picks – especially Eva, Kaz, and the lesser known Hunger Games pick!
Thanks so much! 🙂
Great list, some new books for me to add to my TBR too.
Perfect! 🙂 I grabbed a few from authors you recommended too! Shoot the Messenger, Betrayal, and Hidden Blade by Pippa DaCosta, & Claimed by Power and Crave to Conquer by Zoey Ellis. 🙂
I loved Nancy Drew when I was younger
Ah, I’ve been wanting to read The Book of Lost Names since I came across the title earlier this year. It sounds so good 😍 Great list!
Thanks! The Book of Lost Names is really good. I hope you love it when you get to it! 🙂
