Welcome back to Top 5 Wednesday. This is a meme started in November of 2013 and is still going strong! If you’re interested in being a part of it please see the group on Goodreads.
This week’s topic is Characters you would invite to your New Year’s party. Let’s preface this with the fact that I’m not a partier. Staying up until midnight, drinking, dancing and such? Not so much. But a dinner party? Yes, let’s do this. So this is a laid back group chosen primarily for conversation and amiability.
The Fool – Farseer Chronicles by Robin Hobb
This photo is of an actor name Jamie Bowers, who I think could play the Fool based on his physical appearance. I’d love to have the Fool at my party. He would be so much fun. He is exceedingly clever and interesting.
Hermione Granger – Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
Smart girls at the party represent! She’d bring some great conversation, and I could really use her spells to help clean up afterward right!
Temeraire – Temeraire Series by Naomi Novik
This is not just your garden variety dragon. He is brilliant and extremely well read. He is also very clean and has a good appreciation for music. He would definitely bring the class to our gathering. Which would now have to be an outdoor gathering. Oh well, it would be worth it.
John Watson – Sherlock Holmes Series by Arthur Conan Doyle
First of all, he’s adorable right! Plus, you know he’d have some really terrific stories to tell.
Shurei Hong – Story of Sainukoku by Kairi Yura
If I can have a dragon at my party then I can have an anime character too right? Shurei is really terrific. She has a brilliant mind and a wonderful spirit. I think she and Hermione would really hit it off and I’m hoping she will bring some of her famous pork buns along too.
I can’t handle it all by myself so I have a few honorable mentions. These are people I would hire to help out but would also be welcome guests once things settle down at the party.
Entertainment – Shug Avery
Catering – Maeve
Delicious baked treats!
Security – Wax & Wayne
Ok, I probably don’t really need much security, but these guys would be fun and I have to give them something to do!
