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.
