Top Ten TuesdayThis week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic at The Broke and The Bookish is a back to school theme:  Top Ten Book Characters That Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table.

1 and 2. Harriet the Spy and Jo from Little Women so we can dream about being writers together.

3. Alice in Wonderland because she has the best stories to tell. Plus, this: “And what is the use of a book,” thought Alice, “without pictures or conversations?”

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain4, 5, 6, and 7. Tom and Huck and Jim and Becky from  Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn because they know what it’s like to grow up in a small Missouri town along the Mississippi River like I did.

8 and 9. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson from A Study in Scarlet because every lunch table needs a couple of smart guys who can help every one else with home work.

10. Catherine Morland from Northanger Abbey because she likes to read as much as I do.

Who are your top picks for book characters at your lunch table?

I haven’t read Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire, but Cami and Trenton sound like two characters I’d happily invite to my lunch table. If you think so, too, be sure to enter the giveaway of a great prize pack that includes Beautiful Oblivion.

  1. I love these choices, Joy! You can imagine that I would–Alice, Sherlock, Huck are special favorites–but the others are much loved too. And here, here for highlighting Catherine Morland. I feel most like her, among Austen’s heroines, and her novel is my closet favorite. 😉
