Top Ten Characters Who Would’ve Sat At My Lunch Table

I find these topics really tricky and I’m not sure why?! I went to an all girl’s school, so I guess there’s that. This list is a mix of characters who probably would have sat at my table, and characters who I wish would have sat at my table…

1. Hermione Granger (Harry Potter) – Hermione definitely would have fit right in with our group – we read, we studied and we were often teacher’s pets.

2. Miles Archer (Ugly Love) – Not even gonna lie, this one’s just wishful thinking. I couldn’t even find a great match for how I think Miles looks, who would you have in your fantasy cast?

3. Sarah Sargeant (50 Ways to Find A Lover) – Sarah is sassy, witty and unlucky in love. We definitely would have swapped disastrous date stories and bonded over our single-status.

4. Simon (The Mortal Instruments) – I’m seeing a bit of a geek-chic theme with this week’s topic. Adorable, adorkable Simon, who wouldn’t have him in their friendship group?

5. America (Beautiful Disaster) – I kind of preferred America’s character to Abby’s at times throughout this book, especially when it comes to friendship, no matter what happened America had Abby’s back. Before anyone gets too excited – no, Blake Lively hasn’t been cast as America, that’s just who I pictured in my head while reading the book.

6. Sephy (Noughts and Crosses) – It took Sephy a little while to mature and realise that the real world wasn’t quite what she thought it was, but she was strong, smart, determined and not afraid to stand up for what’s right. Oodles of girl power!

7. Mia Thermopolis (The Princess Diaries) – Not that we had any secret Royalty in our group, but Mia’s clumsiness, first-love experiences and general quirkiness would have fit right in with us girls.

8. Bridget Jones (Bridget Jones’ Diary– Everyone has at least seen the movie if they haven’t read the book, right? Teenage Bridget would no doubt have been just as hilarious as adult Bridget, and being involved in her escapades would have been brilliant!

9. Jenny (Not Dressed Like That You Don’t) – I read this quite a few years ago now, but I don’t think this book gets the credit it deserves. A great teen read, a very relatable and honest teen-portrayal, and Jenny does all of the embarrassing things we did in High School…

10. Patrick (The Perks of Being a Wallflower– I really connected with this character the most when reading this book, and LOVED the casting for the film adaptation.

There’s no Have Your Say this week, so I’ll do a quick re-cap of the feature to date.

Week 1 you guys picked The Perks of Being A Wallflower, which I’ve read and reviewed. Week 2 the winner was Throne of Glass, which arrived in the post yesterday in my most recent haul. And Week 3 (last week’s winner) was Cinder! I’ll be getting to Throne of Glass very soon, and I picked up If I Stay this week too, which came second in last week’s poll, so I’ll probably be reading it before Cinder.

  1. Hermione is pretty popular this week! 🙂 And that’s because she would have been a great addition to anyone’s school lunch table. Thanks for sharing Rachel! 🙂


      1. Oh book-Patrick every time! I hated the movie, although I do like the actor that played him. It was definitely one of the better castings!


  2. Brandie

    MILES ALL THE WAY!! 🙂 And definitely Bridget – love her. I’d also have to add Andrew Parrish from The Edge of Never. Which BTW, have you read yet?! If not, I’m pretty sure you’d love it. I’d also want Edward from Twilight, of course. And Alice, because she’s awesome.

    I just posted my August recap and mentioned you a few times. 😉 I am ready to jump into Throne of Glass with you…but I’m going to count on you to help me remember the series when we get to book 3 and the rest aren’t out yet! My memory is total shit. 😉


      1. Brandie

        I’m not a re-reader, I wish I was! I’m going to start over with Harry Potter and have to reread the first 3 books because I don’t remember them at all. If you do a spoilery review, it’ll help me out because I’ll reference it in a few years when I have forgotten the books. LOL.

        Well, let me know when you’re going to start TOG. I’ll join you. Going to just take the plunge.


  3. Elen @ A World of Reviews

    You have so many great characters on your list! Mia’s an amazing character and she would be so much fun to have around. Now I’m really tempted to reread The Princess Diaries. Sephy’s awesome too and she’d be a great friend. 🙂


  4. Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook

    Oh my gosh, YES! Bridget Jones and I would have been close friends. Although she is a bit more outgoing than I was (or am) but we’re total dorks and spazzes so that would work for our friendship.

    I put Hermione on my list too! I knew she’d be popular. I can’t believe I forgot about Simon! I was at such a loss about half-way through my list, though, that I just went through my Good Reads “Read” bookshelf for ideas. It’s been a long day at work, and my brain was tired 😉


      1. Rachael at The End of the Chapter

        Same here! I need to sit down and write so I have a bit of a time cushion.
