Top Ten Tuesday #262


Hi all! I hope you are all doing well and have had a good week since I last did one of these. My cabin fever continues, as we are still locked down here and it looks like we probably will be for at least the next month, possibly even longer. Thankfully the weather seems like it’s going to be nice this week, so I should be able to get a run in and maybe some reading out on the balcony, after all lockdown is all about the small pleasures.

Anyway, since it’s Tuesday, I have another Top Ten Tuesday for you all, courtesy of Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week we’re talking Things I’d Have At My Bookish Party, so I’ve decided to go for Fictional Characters I’d Have At My Bookish Party. Now let’s be honest, I’m not really a party person, so when I say “party” I generally mean me and a couple of friends with pizza and movies! A party with 10 other people in real life would definitely not be something I would do, so rest assured this is definitely something that would only happen in a fictional universe:

  1. Izzy O’Neill-The Exact Opposite of Okay-Laura Steven

Izzy would be super fun to hang out with and I reckon she would definitely be down for a chill evening of stuffing her face with pizza and watching lots of movies! Our love of food is something we have in common, so I reckon we would have a lot of fun together.

2. Percy Jackson-PJO Universe-Rick Riordan

Percy would be a lot of fun to have at a party, as long as he didn’t bring any Greek monsters with him! I would definitely love to spend an evening listening to more stories about his adventures.

3. Fred and George Weasley-Harry Potter-JK Rowling

Wouldn’t Fred and George be so much fun to have at a party? They could bring along their fireworks and we could have a fireworks display to end the night (safely in the back garden and not inside the house of course).

4. Evie O’Neill-The Diviners Series-Libba Bray

Where there is a party, there has to be Evie O’Neill. Granted, I reckon the two of us would have very different ideas of what makes a fun party, but if there’s a party going on, no matter how low key, Evie would want to be involved.

5. Leo Valdez-PJO Universe-Rick Riordan

Leo would also be a lot of fun to have at a party, he could bring Festus and we could all take turns riding around on him, which sounds a hell of a lot more fun than dancing!

6. Henry “Monty” Montague-Montague Siblings-Mackenzi Lee

Much like Evie, where there is a party, you tend to be able to find Monty. Again, I think we’d have different ideas of what makes a fun party, but he would be a lot of fun to hang around with, so I can overlook that. Plus he’s definitely mellowed from being with Percy.

7. Safiya Von Hasstrel-Witchlands series-Susan Dennard

Safi would be so much fun to hang around with, I reckon she and I would have a great time playing cards, though we definitely couldn’t play Cheat, as Safi would wipe the floor with me!

8. Queenie-Code Name Verity-Elizabeth Wein

Queenie is definitely one for a good time, and with her penchant for pretending to be other people, a party with her would definitely not be boring!

9. Enne Salta-The Shadow Game Trilogy-Amanda Foody

Enne might be more used to balls than pizza parties, but I reckon she would enjoy having a chance to kick up her feet and relax with a few slices of pizza and lots of movies!

10. Aelin Galathynius-Throne of Glass series-Sarah J Maas

Aelin is definitely one for a party and since she loves music so much, I’m sure she’d be willing to be the party’s DJ! Plus, she would bring a myriad of sweet treats, so we definitely wouldn’t be short on chocolate.

Which fictional characters would you invite to your bookish party? What kind of party would you have? Let me know in the comments!

I’ll be back next week with another Top Ten Tuesday, this time we’ll be talking Last Ten Books I Abandoned, so I’ll be sharing the very few books that I have not finished in my time as a reader, since I finally have enough to actually make a Top Ten List!

      Thanks! I mean let’s be honest she would be offended if there was a party happening and she wasn’t there πŸ™‚

  9. Louise 05/05/2020 / 8:17 pm

  10. FangirlFlax 05/05/2020 / 9:11 pm

    Fred and George would be the PERFECT party guests!

  11. Cal's Constant Raving Reviews 05/05/2020 / 10:46 pm

    Trying to picture the Weasley twins AND Aelin at a table together………….. they dare pull a prank on the queen, and they’re going to be sliced!

  12. Holly 06/05/2020 / 12:43 am

    Love that you chose to go with bookish characters in this list! This would be one interesting party indeed! πŸ™‚

  13. nushu shri 06/05/2020 / 12:55 am

    Would love to converse with Percy and Leo for sure! Great list, and thanks for stopping by my blog πŸ™‚

    • iloveheartlandx 07/05/2020 / 1:17 pm

      They would be so much fun to hang out with! Thanks πŸ™‚

  14. Dedra @ A Book Wanderer 06/05/2020 / 2:56 am

    A party could never be dull with Fred and George in attendance! πŸ™‚

  15. Rian 06/05/2020 / 3:36 am

    I noticed that a lot of people like Aelin to come to their parties. Fred and George would be fun since they have their pranks and jokes with them πŸ™‚

  16. Kay | Hammock of Books 06/05/2020 / 5:55 am

    I need Percy at my party I will personally make sure all of the food is blue for him

  17. AB_likes_books 06/05/2020 / 7:38 am

    Ooh the Weasley twins πŸ’—

    • iloveheartlandx 07/05/2020 / 1:15 pm

      Yes they would be so much fun to hang out with πŸ™‚

  18. evelynb98 06/05/2020 / 9:17 am

    This is a great list! And you definitely can’t throw a party with George and Fred!

  19. Sammie @ The Bookwyrm's Den 06/05/2020 / 11:58 pm

    I’m not much of a party person, either, but I think it’s hard not to have a full-blown party with some of these characters, whether you intended it or not. xD I mean, Fred and George alone would pretty well see to that, wouldn’t they? It’d be super fun to have them at a party, though. Monty would definitely liven up a party, too!

    Here’s my TTT post.

    • iloveheartlandx 07/05/2020 / 1:13 pm

      Ha ha you’re probably right about that! Yes, they definitely would, as would Monty πŸ™‚

  20. lifewithallthebooks 07/05/2020 / 9:36 pm

    This sounds like such a fun party! I love Izzy too, she’d be a great friend! And Fred and George would keep everyone entertained! 😊

  21. lindseyhabets 08/05/2020 / 1:09 pm

    Oh this sounds like such a fun party, especially with Percy, Fred, George, Leo and Aelin as the DJ ! πŸ™‚

    • iloveheartlandx 11/05/2020 / 1:12 pm

      As if Aelin would let anyone else control the music ha ha!

  22. thebookishlibra 10/05/2020 / 3:55 am

    This sounds like it would be a very entertaining party with this guest list!

  23. Ela@The Queer Bookish 16/05/2020 / 10:52 am

    Your party sounds like a lot of fun, especially with the magic fireworks! I’d just have to remember to not touch any food one of the twins offers me because I want to enjoy my pizza in peace.

    • iloveheartlandx 18/05/2020 / 1:28 pm

      Ha ha yeah accepting food from Fred and George could be dangerous!
