Literary Dinner Party Tag

1.  One character who likes to cook.   
As soon as I read this question, one character came to mind: Mrs Weasley from the Harry Potter books. She's motherly, kind and she always seemed to be cooking. Mmm, food...

2.  One character who has money to fund the party.  
Lucius Malfoy, another person from the Harry Potter books - sorry! The Malfoy family is very wealthy...although, in reflection, having the party in creepy Malfoy Mannor might not be the best place...

3.  One character who might cause a scene.
Jace from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. Sarcastic, witty and full of one-liners, he thinks he's better than anyone, and he is always up for a fight!

4.  One character who is funny/amusing.
Archie from Geekhood: Close Encounters of the Girl Kind by Andy Robb is HILARIOUS. The dinner party would be pretty boring without him.

5.  One character who is super social/popular.
Rhiannon from Every Day by David Levithan. She's quite shy but she always seems to be surrounded by friends and the majority of people in the book like her. She also sounds super nice!

6.  One villain.
Voldemort. But, y'know, he'd have to be in a separate room to us, his lack-of-nose would freak me out.

7.  One couple (doesn't have to be romantic).
I'm going to go right ahead and pick Jace and Clary, from - you guessed it! - The Mortal Instruments series. Oh my god I SHIP THEM SO MUCH. Although I ship Jamber more, obviously.

8.  One hero/heroine.
He's not exactly a hero in the traditional sense but I really respect Augustus Waters as a character. He is from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and I NEED HIM AT MY DINNER PARTY, OKAY?

9.  One under-appreciated character.
I'm going to choose Madeline from Brooklyn Girls because even though she starts off as quite mean, I feel like she has a story to be told and I think she seemed quite vulnerable underneath. I think she'd be interesting to talk to.

10.  One character of your own choosing.
Katniss from The Hunger Games because she is so badass and awesome; plus, she is one of my favourite female characters of all time. And she could teach me how to do the perfect plait...

I tag Sophie from A Day Dreamer's World and Hawwa from It was Lovely Reading You.

Who would you invite to your dinner party? If you do this tag, link me up in the comments and I'll check it out!


  1. I really liked your answers and agreed with a lot of them.
    I did the same tag a few weeks ago so if you want to take a look here's the address:

    Holly xxx

  2. This looks so fun! Can I do it even though I haven't been tagged? Pwetty please?

  3. I would love to have Katniss at my dinner party! Jace, too. Don't you think they would either really hit it off, or really get on each others nerves?!

    1. Good question! Maybe they would get on each others nerves but eventually become friends?

  4. Great choices! I did this a whim back and Jace, Gus, and Katniss were also at my party. A party with Jace would simply be ajeskibsnsmsk I have no words.

  5. What a cool idea. I am always horrible at coming up with different characters. I read a lot but I have a hard time thinking of individual characters. You did a good job!

  6. nice blig :)
