Book Characters at my Lunch Table #Top10Tuesday
This 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?”
4, 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.
I would love to join your group for lunch!
I almost listed Catherine from Northanger Abbey too! Talking about books over lunch with her would be lovely.
I love your list! I think Harriet the Spy would be so much fun to hang out with! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Here are my Top Ten!
That would be quite the lunch!
Joy, I love your list! So many good ones, like Harriet the Spy and Alice from Alice in Wonderland; it’s so hard to choose, isn’t it?!? Thanks so much for sharing! Hope you have a great week; take care.
A fantastic list! Alice in Wonderland is an excellent addition 🙂 Your lunch table would be so much fun 🙂
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. 😉
Sherlock and Watson would be fantastic people to help out with homework, especially if you needed it to be finished quick! Great list.
I would certainly love to sit at a table with Watson & Sherlock and have them help with my homework!
Check out my TTT!

I agree! This sounds like a great lunch to attend. I love all of the classic book characters.
