Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Book Characters That Would Be Sitting at My Lunch Table
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday from The Broke and the Bookish is a back to school theme. Initially I may have turned my nose up at it, a little. Frankly, I just got out of school and wasn’t exactly keen to start thinking back on it. Then I pulled the stick out of my butt and had some fun with it. I started this list with serious intent and was at first thinking of the people I actually would’ve eaten lunch with, but then it started to go more and more fictional. There may just be a few people that I want to share a table with. So, here are my picks for the. . .
Top 10 Book Characters That Would Be Sitting at My Lunch Table
1. Tris from Divergent by Veronica Roth: I’m finally reading Divergent and her character is fresh in my mind. She’s badass, but doesn’t seem to need to be the center of attention (which I like). I think we’d get along.
2. and 3. Sophie and Kai from The Blooming Goddess trilogy by Tellulah Darling: They would probably be one of the most entertaining couples to have at a lunch table. I wouldn’t need any drama from elsewhere because they’d have a lifetime supply. Bonus – if the school were attacked, Red Dawn style, it would be good to have a God and Goddess on my side.
4. Hagrid from The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling: He would be awesome! You know he’d always have a great story and he may get a little tipsy, which would really make him even more hilarious.
5. Cath Avery from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: She’s so outwardly awkward that I feel like I could relate to her. Granted I don’t seem as bad, but on the inside I’m cringing and counting the seconds until I can get out of most social situations. And I’m sure Cath would have a few book recommendations (hopefully other than Simon Snow).
6. Park from Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell: As much as I didn’t like the book, I do think Park would be a great tablemate. He’s also got a ton of comic books and if I decided I might want to try reading comic books, he’d be an excellent source.
7. Neville Longbottom from The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling: He’s fantastic and you know he would be a loyal friend. So, Neville will always have a place at my lunch table.
8. and 9. Katniss Everdeen and Gale Hawthorne from The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins: I think they’d make an interesting addition to the table. I’m curious how they would interact with the other characters. If nothing else, I could talk to them about outdoorsy things and maybe make plans to go hunting.
10. Josie McMaster from The McMaster the Disaster trilogy by Rachel Astor: I’m fairly certain she would have everyone laughing hysterically and a few people might even pee themselves. If all else fails, she can be my clumsy buddy and we’ll just have mega-fail moments together. It’s always funnier when you’ve got someone to share it with (as opposed to the psychotic laugh that comes out of me when I don’t know the people around me and I fall or trip).
I was taking it seriously, but this list took a few fictional turns and I’m not really sure how that happened. Oh well, I can have ridiculous things happen at my lunch table because they’re fictional characters anyway. It really took on a life of its own.
