Top Ten Tuesday, a concept started by The Broke and the Bookish, is a themed post that connects bloggers to bloggers, bloggers to readers, and readers to readers. Every Tuesday has a special topic, and this Tuesday is Top Ten Book Characters That Would be Sitting at my Lunch Table (Back-to-School Theme!).
Oh gosh, the first three are so easy. Nerd alert! (1) Hermione from Harry Potter, (2) Cather from Fangirl, and (3) Jane from Jane Eyre. Those ladies are intelligent and bookish and nerdy and thoughtful and curious. I love surrounding myself with those people.
But I would also have friends who are quiet and musical, like (4) Mia from If I Stay. I’d love to sit with travelers, too, and swap stories with (5) Allyson from Just One Day, (6) Anna from Anna and the French Kiss, and (7) Laura from The Boy on the Bridge.
Note: Obviously some boys would be at the table too (Jase from My Life Next Door, Matt from Open Road Summer, Stephen from Name of the Star, Levi from Fangirl, Josh from Isla and the Happily Ever After), but I decided to stick with YA ladies I love and adore. Men and women from non-YA books I can’t even see sitting at my lunch table, though I’d love to be in a break room or office cafeteria with so many of them!
Who would sit with you at your lunch table? Do we have any overlapping friends?
