Top Ten Tuesday: Characters at my Lunch Table

A weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

1.) Cath Avery in Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (probably Levi too)
Cath would be at my lunch table because Cath is me. Or at least the closest to me I have ever found in a fictional character. Introverted and anti-social with her nose in a book head over heels in love with a fantasy series that has helped her through the hard times, just like me and my friends.

2.) Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter Series (probably Harry and Ron too)
Many of my friends (but mostly me) were similar to Hermione. Bossy know-it-alls who always wanted to answer all the questions in class. But similar to the Golden Trio my friends from high school and I were a small and tight knit group of friends.

3.) Dee Montgomery in Open Road Summer (probably Reagan too)
Many of my friends from high school were like Dee. Preppy style, demure and sophisticated, and with a musical ability. Reagan probably would have been there as well making snarky comments with me and the others.

4&5.) Jennifer and Beth in Attachments
When I was reading Attachments I couldn't help but laugh at the humor and honesty that Jennifer and Beth spoke to each other. They reminded me so much of me and my best friend. I wanted nothing more than to have brunch with them so obviously I would love to have them at my lunch talking about pop culture and passing sarcastic judgement on others.

6-10.) Tibby, Lena, Bridget, and Carmen from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
My friends and I in high school (well probably college) loved this series with four rather unlikely best friends who reminded us so much of ourselves. We had an artist, and athlete, an intelligent one with a flair for the dramatic, and a sarcastic one who wanted to be a rebel but had a heart of gold instead.

11.) Celaena Sardothien in the Throne of Glass series
So I just finished The Assassin's Blade and am completely in love with Celaena Sardothien and her wry wit and biting comments about everyone and everything. Plus her love of books, clothes, and kicking ass would have her fit in completely in at my lunch table.

How about you? Which fictional characters would be sharing your lunch table this back to school season? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. Good choices. I didn't pick any of these characters, but I did pick someone from the Harry Potter series.
