Top Ten Book Characters That Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table

It's time for Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

This week's theme is back to school oriented with:  Top Ten Book Characters That Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table

I decided to pick characters based on who I would have wanted to hang out with in high school, rather than now, because, you know, I don't sit at a lunch table anymore. But as an added bonus, I decided to include a picture of myself in high school with my best friend, who made sitting at lunch all the more fun.

Without further ado, here is my list:

1. Fred and George Weasley from Harry Potter: I realize that these are two people, but how much more fun would high school have been with these two hanging around? 

2. Daniel from The Shadow of the Wind: I want to be his friend so he'll take me to the Cemetary of Books; is that shallow? 

3. Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird: She'd be loyal to a fault and always tell you the truth.  You can't ask for more than that.

4. Craig from It's Kind of a Funny Story: I think he and I would've gotten along well in high school because we had a lot in common.

5. Mattie from True Grit:  She had spunk and that would've made for a fun friendship.

6. Leo from the Heroes of Olympus series: He is funny and genuine.  Plus the whole fire and speaking to machines thing may have come in handy.

7. Jasper from I Hunt Killers:  Since his dad is a serial killer, he would be a good friend to have around. Who wants to mess with him?

8. Pat from Silver Linings Playbook: Maybe if he and I were friends, we could have been there for each other and I could have helped prevent his later break down.

9. Zelda from Z:  Because she's awesome. She'd be so much fun and keep me on my toes!

10. Veronica Mars from Veronica Mars: Ok, so I am actually thinking of the high school Veronica from the TV series, but seriously, she would be a very handy friend to have around because if anything bad happened, she'd get to the bottom of it and then seek revenge on the foes.


  1. Fred and George are like the best pick ever! Awesome list. =)

    1. Right? I think I might have actually liked high school with those two around. :)

  2. Fred, George and Leo made my list too! Great list.

    1. Yes! She would be one of the best friends to have in high school!
