Top Ten Tuesday is an original concept started by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week a specific theme will be revealed at the website and book lovers are encouraged to share their answers to the theme either at the comment box or at their own blogs. This is another fun way to talk about books, don’t you agree?
This week’s topic is ‘Top Ten Book Characters That Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table’. I am no longer in school but I believe that this topic appeals to everyone regardless of age. Here is my selection of lunch companions:
Fred & George Weasley (‘Harry Potter’ series by J.K. Rowling)
I notice that most bloggers choose to hang out with Hermione Granger but I would rather sit with this dynamic duo. They would crack me up with their jokes and mischiefs.
Mason Langley (‘Exquisite’ by Ella Frank)
Now who wouldn’t want to hang out with a man who owns a restaurant and cooks for a living? Plus we could talk all day long about Dave Matthews Band.
Laurel Wilkins (‘Mouth to Mouth’ by Erin McCarthy)
I truly admire Laurel’s courage. She strives to fit in both hearing and American sign language communities despite her struggles. I would like to ask her about her adjustment issues as well as plans after graduation.
Atticus Finch (‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ by Harper Lee)
I would love to talk to him about his work as I truly admire his dedication to defend the undefended. We could also chat about his kids and parenting style.
Bella Swan (‘Twilight’ saga by Stephenie Meyer)
Ok I don’t want to be judgemental but she was hasty in her decision to become a vampire. I’d like to advise Bella to enjoy her life first before committing to immortality and Edward Cullen.
Eddie (‘Slammed’ by Colleen Hoover)
She’s my favourite character in the book because she is unpretentious. Her back story is so endearing especially that surprise birthday party.
Sherlock Holmes (‘Sherlock Holmes’ series by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)
I’d like to learn more about consulting detective work from Sherlock. Perhaps he is willing to share some details of his current case. Actually can I wish for Benedict Cumberbatch to hang out with me during lunch?
Tessa Sheridan (‘Whisper Falls’ by Toni Blake)
I had a very frustrating week recently so I need to be in a positive and uplifting environment. Tessa loves Ellen DeGeneres so we could have talk about ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ and watch a marathon of the show later.
Piscine Molitor “Pi” Patel (‘Life of Pi’ by Yann Martel)
I still couldn’t figure out the ending of the book. Are the animals real or are they figurative representatives of his parents and the ship’s crew? Hhhhmmmm….I still don’t know the answer!
