Top Ten Book Characters I'd Want As Family Members

Tuesday meme from The Broke and the Bookish. I've modified it to Characters I'd Invite To The Family Christmas Dinner.

1. Violet Baudelaire – she’s so McGuyver that if someone dropped a turkey leg she’d fashion a retrieval device from her napkin and a dinner roll and proceed to scoop up the turkey before the dog could get to it

2. Captain Corelli to play the mandolin in the background

3. Sherlock Holmes could figure out who took the last piece of pie after everyone denied it

4. Mrs Norris - any large family group needs a common enemy

5. Forrest Gump to bring the chocolates

6. James Bond because it might be nice to see someone in a tux at the dinner table. Plus he probably has a cuff link that doubles as a carving knife.

7. Medea to give 007 a run for his money

8. Luna Lovegood – someone has to watch out for nargles

9. Maid Marian to make the coffee

10. Bertie Wooster because “What ho” sounds kinda Christmassy


  1. Very very good. I loved this!

    Here is my Top Ten Picks post!

  2. I think Bertie and Jeeves should be packaged together. I can't imagine one without the other! Great call on Luna - someone needs to be watching out for nargles!

  3. Your right, Violet is so McGuyver!
