Literary Dinner Party Tag!

I was tagged by Becky to do the Literary Dinner Party Tag! Thanks Becky :) I've been seeing this one around a lot so it's really fun to get to do it myself! The idea of this tag is that you are hosting a Literary Dinner Party and are allowed to invite 10 guests who have to fit in each category...
1. A character who can cook/likes to cook.

Don from The Rosie Project. He has his quirks, but his cooking sounds amazing! Lobster? Mmmm.

2. A character who has money to fund the party.

Francis Abernathy from The Secret History. He was one of the most intriguing characters in the book; rich, mysterious and fragile. Also I don't think he would settle for the £4.99 special offer wine from the local shop ;)

3. A character who might cause a scene.

Cersei from Game of Thrones. I love her scheming and unflinching devotion to her own best interests. I'm sure she would make the dinner party interesting in some way or another ;)

4. An amusing character.

Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. Shes amusing in an "I want to know much much more about you and listen to you talk for days" kind of way!

5. A character who is super social/popular.

Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games - to bring a bit of Capitol flair to the table, which, at the this point, probably needs a bit of colour!

6. A villain.

It's probably a bit worrying that I have a huge list of villains I'd like to invite but struggled with a few before! It would have to be Andreas Corelli from The Angel's Game because I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS! (But Heathcliff, you come a close second ;))

7. A couple (doesn't have to be romantic).

Temple and Moses Todd from The Reapers Are The Angels. Not a "couple", but the intricate relationship between "hunter and hunted" was so intriguing. I'd love to see them cross paths again!

8. A hero/heroine.

Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. Love her!

9. An under-appreciated character.

Will from His Dark Materials Trilogy. I always wanted him to be my friend when I was growing up. He's such a sweet, honourable, tough, broken and wonderful character!

10. A character of your choosing.

*rifles through all the villains*! Actually, I was left so aghast at the abrupt ending of Trouble that I would absolutely need to invite Hannah. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED NEXT!

So, I hope you enjoyed this tag! I'm going to tag these lovely bloggers:

The Reading Residence
Paper Obsessed
What Danielle Did Next

If you guys have done it, I apologise but I would love to see your answers to these questions!

Who would you want at your dinner party?


  1. Ah Lizzie B is defo at my table too! Thanks for the tag! Finally getting round to mine this week!

  2. I have finally completed my list but I have the Children's Book edition on the teaching blog!
