TTT: Book Characters That Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table

Books Characters That Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table
Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they have a different Top Ten list topic that a bunch of bloggers take and make their own list of those things.
When I think of school lunch tables I think of laughing stupidly loud at ridiculous things, so I've decided to choose the characters that I find particularly ridiculous or entertaining or witty. These run the gradient of humor, some being clever with words, some being master pranksters, so I think we'd have a pretty well-rounded group.

Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)

1. My Darling Nikolai
Obviously. Who is more ridiculous, more entertaining, more witty than Nikolai Lantsov? That's right. FREAKING NO ONE.

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)
2. William Herondale
Speaking of my ridiculous darlings, William Herondale is too charming and witty for his own good. Seriously, I want him at my table every-freaking-day.

The Two Towers (The Lord of the Rings, #2)
3. Pippin
What a prankster? I imagine he'd get along really well with Fred and George. Just imagine that!

The Son of Neptune (The Heroes of Olympus, #2)
4. Percy Jackson
The love of my life. Percy is everything and I love him far too much for my sanity.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter #7)

5. Ron Weasley
The classic goofball sidekick who is simultaneously smart and courageous and mostly kind. Ronald Billius Weasley is a champ.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter, #5)
6. Fred and George Weasley
And what would a table of pranksters be if I didn't include good old Fred and George? They are the masters of all things prank and they are sort of my heroes.

Lioness Rampant (Song of the Lioness, #4)

7. George and Alanna
Their back and forth is just perfect all the time, and they would be definite Prom King and Queen material.

8. Regan
The sass Queen here to take her crown. Remember the scenes of Cath and her at meals? Yeah, it'd be like that. I would be Cath in this scenario, of course.

The Serpent's Shadow (Kane Chronicles, #3)
9. Sadie Kane
The bae. Sadie, with her kicking boots and her unbelievable sass. I want to be her best friend and I want to share clothes with her.

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)

10. Anna Oliphant
I just love her, okay? I think we'd get along really well and we share the same kind of humor. It'd work out pretty well.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter, #6)
11. Ginny Weasley
I have always loved and will always love Ginny for her sass and her fighting spirit and her kindness, and don't even get me started on her loyalty. I want her defending my friend group with her hexes.


  1. I love that you picked Ron and Ginny from Harry Potter!

  2. I thought about putting Regan on my list this week too. She would be interesting to sit next to.

  3. Anna, Percy, Ron, Fred and George made my list too. Great list! :)

  4. I love your list! So excited to see so many Harry Potter characters on yours. I wanted to add more to mine but then it would have turned into which Hogwarts students would you want at your table. Pippin made my list as well, I just love his humor and antics. Regan is such a good choice as well gotta love a character full of sass.

  5. Fantastic list! Percy, Fred and George and Anna would be totally awesome lunch buddies!
