So, random question for all of you. If you could invite any fictional person to a dinner party, who would it be and why?? I’ll give you say… 5 to choose. And…. Go!! Me? Who would invite? This is definitely not going to be on of those lists where I choose characters from Classic Literature for very intellectual reasons.Oh no no, this list is just characters that I have liked, enjoyed reading about, and falling in love with.
I would invite:
- Robinson from One Hot Summer by Kat French. I choose Robinson for two reasons: he’s a musician and he’s eye candy. It’s been at least 2 years since reading this book, and holy cow I still love Robinson.
- Lou from Me Before You/After You/Still Me by Jojo Moyes. I’ve not read the third book but I loved Lou in both of the others. I think she would be great fun to sit down and have a chat with.
- Dobby from Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling. Dobby is a very loved character in my house. I think Dobby would love to have a dinner party, and I would present to him a million odd socks!!
- Catherine from Heartless by Marissa Meyer. I loved Catherine, she definitely did not deserve what happens in this book. She should have been allowed to have her dream. I’d invite her because I think she would bring some deliciously tasty baked treats.
- Marcus from The All Souls Trilogy and Time’s Convert by Deborah Harkness. I personally think that Marcus is one of the best characters in this series, and I cannot wait to get my hands on his story in September (my copy is already ordered, Eek!!). I invite Marcus for his intellect, his wit, and just because I loved him.
This list could have gone on forever… In fact.. As it’s my question, my dinner party. I’m adding another 5!!!!
My second round of invites would go to:
- Luc Callanach from D.I. Callanch Series by Helen Fields. I like Luc. I reckon he would bring a bit of class and some horror stories to this mismatched dinner party.
- Jess from The One Plus One by Jojo Moyes. Jess needs somebody to look after her, and I bet she doesn’t get a meal cooked for her often. I’ll happily cook for another strong, independent woman.
- Strange from Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor. I think after Strange’s early life, he needs to be fed well. I liked Strange, he was an intriguing character and I would love to meet him.
- Jubilee from Close Enough To Touch by Colleen Oakley. I think Jubilee would be an interesting person to meet. Plus, she went a long time without human interaction so the more the better right??
- Melody Bittersweet from The Chapelwick Mysteries by Kitty French. She’s a fun character. She’s witty, fierce, and just fabulous. I think she would have some stories to tell about her family.
So, there is my extremely mismatched dinner party. I think it would be fun, messy and very interesting!!
Has my fictional dinner party given you inspiration to have your own? Let me know who you would invite!!
