Top Ten Tuesday: Book Characters Sitting at My Table
This list is in no certain order and is subject to change. This book meme was borrowed from Broke and Bookish. If you have a book blog, hop on over and join in!
Technically he started as a TV character, but he also has books, so I’m counting him. 😀 Any incarnation will do. He’s over 2,000 years old now, so I know he has plenty of stories to tell. Plus with 12 (13 including War Doctor) incarnations and personalities he’d bring plenty of personality to the table.
Myrnin is one of the best side characters I’ve read about in a series. He’s a vampire/mad scientist that walks around wearing vampire bunny slippers. I’d make sure he was on the other end of the table, but he’d be entertaining to have around just the same.
3. Westley- The Princess Bride
If you’ve read the book this one really doesn’t need to be explained. But for those that haven’t, one line can sum it up: “As you wish.”
4. Sophie- Howl’s Moving Castle
I adored this book and its sequels, and I always thought Sophie and I would be good friends.
5. D’Artagnan- The Three Musketeers
Confession time. I have no idea why, but when I first read this (some time in junior high) D’Artagnan became my first book-boyfriend. After that I read all the D’Artagnan Romances.
6. Ariel- Theatre Illuminata series
Ariel is based on the air spirit from Shakespeare’s The Tempest, but in this series he has a more brooding, and sometimes, uh… airy… personality. He controls the winds and can’t stand to be bound by the theatre or by love. Desperado/Rebel/Maverick, whatever you’d like to use to describe him, he’d be fun to have a chat with if you could get him to sit for awhile.
7. Pippin- The Lord of the Rings
I’d have to order extra food, but at least it would be way more entertaining with Pippin there!
8. Fred and George- Harry Potter
The books wouldn’t have been half as entertaining without these two. Could you imagine if the twins and Pippin actually teamed up? Remind me to put the place cards so they never meet.
9. Professor Moriarty- The Adventure of the Final Problem
Sherlock is awesome, but Moriarty had the city at his feet and Sherlock being watched before Sherlock knew of his existence.
10. Hua Mulan- The Ballad of Mulan
Hua Mulan is a strong female character.
