* Top Ten Tuesday * Fictional Lunch Table Buddies



Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, where we get to reveal our top ten of whatever they chose as the weekly topic! Click here for a list of future topics.

This week's topic is characters I will allow to sit at my lunch table. If, of course, they each brought me a different flavour cupcake. Because those are the rules at my table and those without a cupcake tribute will have to dance the funky chicken. This is just how it's always been.

So, cupcakes taken into account, this cool kids are invited to my table:


 


Would you want to sit at my lunch table with these legendary characters? Scratch that, I know the answer: YES. What characters would you choose?

  1. OOh nice! I had a Cole at my table too, but from another series! Great picks!

    1. I swear, every character named Cole is just awesome. It's like a fictional rule or something!

  2. I'd definitely want Blue and Gansey at my lunch table just so I could swoon while watching them banter. And perhaps stare at Gansey until he'll ask me what's wrong and then I could dramatically rise up from the table, flip it over and run away. :')

    Cinder would also be an amazing edition... I'd have SO MUCH FUN TALKING TO HER. She's like my fav character in the series and so relatable too. Plus she has an awesome sense of humor :')

    Ronan would be an awkward edition to the table. I'd stare at him too and then we'd probably get into some sort of staring contest. :P

    Great picks, Allie!! :)

    1. Blue would be so awesome to have! She'd make my super powers stronger and everything (you know, if I had super powers). I'd put her on the opposite end of the table than Gansey though, just so I could have him to myself ;)

      Yes Cinder!! I should've put Iko on there too. That'd be hilarious having them both.

      And haha Ronan. I can't have Gansey without his other half. I'd just be staring at them both, fascinated, the entire time. I'd also get into a battle of the wits with Ronan and make him see that it's nice to be nice sometimes :P

  3. I would love to be invited to this table. Blue, Celaena, Cinder and Karou are some of my favorite female characters and I love Gansey, Ronan & of course Chaol :D (I would also love to be there if he was the only one there, haha) I think I would also add Thorne, Sturmhond, Duval, Valek & Beast to the males and perhaps Hermione, Scarlet (from A.C Gaughen), Ismae & Sybella to the girls.

    1. Yeah, if it was just Chaol at the table then I'd still show up, swooning, wearing my best dress ;)
      OH YES, THORNE! How could I forget??

  4. Oh yes, Cinder would be great!! :)

    1. I think she'd make us all laugh – especially if she brought Iko along!

  5. Great list, would love to talk with Celeana as well, but might be too intimidated

    1. Yeah, might have to watch what we say and keep her away from sharp objects. She'd have to eat with a spork or something :P

  6. AHHHHHHHH I WOULD SIT AT YOUR TABLE BECAUSE I'D PICK ALL THESE GIRLS AND THEN EVERY SINGLE GUY YOU PICKED IS PERFECT TOO!!! WHY IS THIS LIST SO PERFECT? WHY? I'd ofc add the Addicted gang and Connor Cobalt (DUHHHH) and I'd also pick Levi and Cath and Lola and Cricket and Wolf and Kai and Thorne and Scarlet and Holder and Six and Daniel and Sky and Will and Lake and Gavin and Eddie and just everyone. I can't pick. DON'T MAKE ME. Though Connor Cobalt okay. That is all.

    1. YOU ARE OF COURSE INVITED! I was going to put your name down but, alas, you're a real person ;)

      KAI WOULD BE GREAT! Basically every character from The Lunar Chronicles actually. I should put them all on the guest list. It's so hard to choooooose.

      Invite Connor along! That way I won't have competition for Gansey ;)

  10. Oh dear, now I have to admit to not having read any of these yet! Go ahead, throw one of the unfavorable cupcakes at me ;) I do have most of them in my possession though, so progress? It is quite an epic list though!

    1. :O SHANNON! Really???? I'm . . . I can't even . . . I would throw a cupcake at you, but I've eaten through my stash :P

      I think you need to go on a completely marathon and finally meet all of these characters!

  11. I need to read more of these books!! LOL I love this topic though. I'd love to have so many characters sitting with me at lunch...or, back when I was in high school at least. I think Luna Lovegood from the HP series would be adorably fun.

    1. You do, you do! I'm actually surprised when people mention they haven't read them, because I love them so much I always assume the rest of the world must feel the same lol

  12. Fantastic picks!! Although you might have to share Noah with me ;)

    1. Hmmm . . . not sure about that. Though I suppose if Gansey is there, then I could let you have Noah ;)

  13. I like how you think! A cupcake for entry, genius idea I say. The only character I know is Noah from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. I'm reading this book RIGHT NOW. He's such a gentleman and oh so dreamy. So, yes I'd sit at your table. I'll make note to bring two cupcakes so I can have one too though :D

    1. Hey, don't just bring two. bring a couple of dozen, then we can have loads each ;)

  14. Thank goodness I finally picked up The Raven Boys, because it looks like I have a few characters I really need to meet! Love Cinder, Cole, and Noah too. I'd definitely want to sit at this table. :)

    1. Oh, you do! You really do :D I can't wait to hear what you think!

  15. Personally, I'd pick the funny and light-hearted characters (like Captain Thorne!) to sit with me during lunch. ;) But hey, badass characters can work, too. We'd totally be talking about all the people we killed that day. XD

    I haven't read The Raven Boys yet, but I have it on my shelf! Can't wait to meet Blue, Gansey and Ronan. ;)

    I would LOVE Cinder on my table. She could take her foot off to entertain me. Kidding! I would love to chat about the world of Cinder with her.

    Not sure about sharing a table with Chaol and Calaena... xD Not their biggest fan at the moment. But I would just kill to share a table with Rowan and Manon (Heir or Fire)!

    Awesome picks, Allie!!

    1. That's what Noah's there for – the wit and the charm and, also, so we Brits can gain some ground! Haha.

      Nooooo, but Chaol! He's so *sighs* he was so awesome at the end of Heir of Fire with his little speech!

      Delete
  16. Nice list, love how you've set it out! I wouldn't mind being at your lunch table, especially with Chaol there ;) A lot of the other characters are ones I don't know, still haven't got to a lot of those books. I plan to though.
