Top Ten Tuesday-Characters Would Be at My Lunch Table 9/2/14


This week The Broke and the Bookish are in back to school mode and asking about how who be at our lunch tables. I had to dig deep to remember by high school days and I realized that I had a pretty diverse group of friends. I went to a small all-girl’s school. With 67 girls in my entire class, I am pretty sure I had lunch with just about everyone at some point or another. So, I am going to set my dream lunch table. High school me would have wanted to share a table with the following characters:

1. Frankie Landau-Banks. She actually would have been at my table. With her epic pranks and girl-power attitude, she would have fit right in with my high school self.


2. Hermione Granger. Yeah, I totally hung out with the smart girls. Hermione the know-it-all would have fit right in.

3. Violet from Mostly Good Girls by Leila Sales. My high school friends and I were mostly good girls ourselves.

4. Bria from Wanderlove by Amanda Hubbard. “Bria is a good girl trying to be bad.” Again, another rule follower trying to expand her horizons. She would have fit right in at my table. I didn’t quite catch the travel bug like she did, but I was one of only three girls from my class who left the state for college and I did eventually get some international travel in.


5. Liesel Meminger. This fellow book lover would have been right at home with me and my friends.

6. Flavia de Luce. I would have latched on to this young chemist in a heartbeat. We would have spent lunch studying and she would have been thoroughly exasperated by my lack of science skills.

7. Alexis from Bad Girls Don’t Die by Katie Alender. I can totally relate to Alexis’ annoying sister and dysfunctional family and back in high school I still enjoyed a good scare in a haunted house.


8. Elizabeth from Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman. I didn’t realize I wanted to be a librarian until I was well out of high school, college, and a different post-grad degree. Maybe if Elizabeth had been at my lunch table in high school telling me all about her super-cool library job my search for my dream job would not have taken so long.

9. Jessie from Into the Wild Nerd Yonder by Julie Halpern. I was not a mathlete, but my friends and I were pretty nice; we would have welcomed her at our table (and I would have gotten some math help!).

10. Lucy from The Drake Chronicles by Alyxandra Harvey. Is a shared love for chocolate a good basis for friendship? I think so! Lucy is totally fierce and loyal. I would want her on my side!

Happy Reading!

  1. Frankie Landau-Banks was at my table, too. I’m pleasantly surprised by how many people want to sit with her. I guess it’s better to be with Frankie than against her 😉 Great list!

    Michelle @ Michelle’s Minions

  2. Great list – some of these sound like wonderful characters I need to add their books to my list. Here is my top 10 list.

  3. Your list contained all girls and mine were mostly old men! Haha! I’m so weird. 😛

    I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for this!
