I saw this last week on Nicki’s blog, The Secret Library Book Blog,
and I thought it looked like good fun so here I am having a go.
This tag is all about who you would invite to a literary dinner party
and I’m using characters from the books I’ve read in 2022.
If you click the title of each book, it will take you to my review.
A character who can cook/likes to cook
Freya from Keeping a Christmas Promise by Jo Thomas
A cook who learns to appreciate Icelandic foods and culture
A character who has money to fund the party
Alfonso d’Este from The Marriage Portrait by Maggie O’Farrell
As a duke and ruler of Ferrara, Modena and Reggio, he had plenty money but little compassion
A character who might cause a scene
Margaret from And Then There’s Margaret by Carolyn Clarke
Margaret is the mother-in-law from hell!
A character who is funny/amusing
Young Agot from Jenny Colgan’s Mure series always makes me laugh – An Island Wedding
The things she comes out with are hilarious!
A character who is super social/popular
Carrie from Carrie Soto is Back by Taylor Jenkins Reid
As a world class tennis player she is certainly popular and we see her through the highs and lows of her career
Alexander Seton from The Green Lady by Sue Lawrence – based on a real person too!
He was so cruel to his young wives and only interested in having a son.
One couple (doesn’t have to be romantic)
Benedict and Sophie from An Offer from a Gentleman by Julia Quinn
I think their story is my favourite from the Bridgerton series
Captain Arthur Rostron from A Brilliant Night of Stars and Ice by Rebecca Connolly.
He was the captain of the Carpathia that came to Titanic’s rescue, a real life hero
An under-appreciated character
Kitty from How to Fall in Love Again by Amanda Prowse is a character I didn’t appreciate when I first read about her in Theo and Anna but I loved her after I’d listened to this as an audiobook.
One character of your choosing
Time travelling librarian Shona from Miss Blaine’s Prefect and the Weird Sisters by Olga Wojtas – she would be a hoot!
Who would you invite to your literary dinner party?
