Top Ten Tuesday - Characters Who Would Be At My Lunch Table

Today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, is the top ten book characters that would be sitting at my lunch table.  My list is going to include characters who I think would actually be my friends in real life, rather than who I would wish to be my friends... Okay, I'd probably wish for quite a few of these to be my friends too.

1.  Cather from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Cath is like my twin.  We are so alike in many ways.  In fact, our alikeness, at times, made reading Fangirl an uncomfortable experience for me.  I could totally see myself living off of protein bars because I didn't want to go to the dining hall.  And I suppose whilst Cath is sitting at my table, Levi probably would too - not a bad bonus.

2.  Katy from the Lux books by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Katy is another character that is similar to me, if only through our love of books and appreciation of gardening.

3.  Thomas from Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
From what I remember of Thomas, he would probably fit right in at this table.  He's a loyal friend, so he would be welcome too.

4.  Ethan from Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Maybe I am getting book-Ethan mixed up with movie-Ethan, but he was a kind and funny character who I think would get along with everyone currently at the table.  He'd probably bring some much needed laughter as well.

5.  Angela from the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer
Yeah, I went there.  Angela was gentle and kind and I think we'd be good friends.

6.  Simon and Clary from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
I like to think that I'd be friends with Simon and Clary.  Like Ethan, these characters would help balance the serious with the silly.  Plus, I'd love to tag along on some of their adventures.

7.  Tessa and Jem from The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare
On the topic of Cassandra Clare...  I feel Tessa would be welcomed at the table and again, she loves reading, so we'd have something to discuss.  I think Jem has the perfect personality to fit in with this group too, unlike my darling Will, who could intimidate a few of us.

8.  Al from Divergent by Veronica Roth
I think Al would easily be friends with most of this group.  Perhaps they could teach him a few things about loyalty and bravery as well...

9.  Luna and Neville from the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling
Must I elaborate on this?  Again, I believe these two would get along with everyone.

That's my list!  I've only got 9 books but I kind of cheated and included 12 characters.  I'm surprised how into this I got, but this week's theme was a lot of fun!  Would you pick any of the same characters?  Be sure to link me to your TTT in the comments! :)
