TTT: Characters at My Lunch Table

This week's TTT topic: Characters That Would Be Sitting at My Lunch Table

What a fun topic! This is of course making us all the same age despite what age the characters are in their books. I'm thinking 16-17 because we would be able to drive to hang outs and all the crazy things our group would be up to after school.

Gen and Irene for the Queen's Thief Series by Megan Whalen Turner

Lord Peter and Harriet from Strong Poison, To Have his Carcase, Gaudy Night, and Busman's Honeymoon by Dorothy Sayers

Howl and Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

Ron and Hermione from Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

Kate and Christopher from The Perilous Gard

In addition to these fine people and myself we will add my husband. And with that this would be the table with the smartest yet laziest students (the boys), contrasted with the smartest and everyone knows it students (the girls). There would be a whole lot of eye rolling, flirting disguised as snarky flippant conversation, and quite a few political debates. There would also be a whole lot of trouble.

Who would you have at your lunch table.

Lol, I totally chose Sophos (and would take Edis over Irene too--love her!). I admire Gen and Irene, but don't see myself hanging out with them. Total YES at Howl and Sophie though, didn't even think of them! Howl would drive me nuts though. :P

Gen and Irene plus Howl and Sophie are great picks! I love how you chose couples for this. Haha and what you said about the boys being the smartest but laziest. So true.

Oh goodness. With a table like that, the odds of your entire table (minus maybe Hermoine) ending up in detention every day just shot up.

I love Sophos and Eddis too, but not more than Gen and Irene. I think everyone at this table would drive each other crazy, but it would be a fun kind of crazy.

I wanted the table balanced in all things. :)

I have a feeling it would be more of other people getting detention because of how sneaky 75% of these people are.

Ron and Hermione are both great choices!

Future Favorite Friday: June 2018

I take the 2nd Friday of every month to highlight some upcoming releases I am looking forward to that I hope are Future Favorites. Feel free to do your own post, just please link back to my blog and tell me about your post in the comments.

Two Naomis was one of my favorite reads of 2016 so I was understandably excited it's getting a sequel. 

In this sequel to Two Naomis, now that Naomi Marie’s mom and Naomi E.’s dad are married, the girls have learned to do a lot of things together, like All-Family Sunday dinners, sixth-grade homework, navigating the subway system by themselves, and visiting their favorite bakeries. Until sixth grade in a new school presents a whole new set of surprises and challenges.

Trusting her gut has worked for Naomi E. all her life, and she figures that it will be an asset to her role as a Peer Mediator—until she realizes how much of the job requires the Art of Compromise, which she’s only just starting to get used to at home.

Naomi Marie is excited about maki…

Lovely War

When I first heard about Lovely War by Julie Berry, I remember thinking, "Whoa, that's ambitious." And it is. The scope and depth of this story with all of its intricacies and thematic elements is massive. Berry manages to hold it all together beautifully. She managed it so beautifully that it is so far my favorite YA read of 2019.

The ecstasies and the wounds of love were Aphrodite's work. Forging passions was what she was born to do. She, too, was a welder, a mistress of fire of a different sort, working in materials more powerful and resistant than carbon and iron. And what did that toil do to her?

In 1942 New York City while men are partying on the eve of shipping off to war, a stunning couple arrives at a hotel in the midst of the revelry and departs for their room followed by an overly enthusiastic bellboy. But none of these figures are as they appear. The couple is Aphrodite and Ares on a secret assignation that turns out to be not so secret as the bellboy is Ap…

TTT: Auto-Buy Authors

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly themed blog hop created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This Week's Topic: Auto-Buy Authors

Here are my auto-buy authors and their most recent or coming soon release. Also, I got stuck on twelve and couldn't cut it down any further. So it's really Top Twelve Tuesday today. Or Thirteen rather as I sort of combined Emma and Genevieve. (I auto-buy all their individual projects too.)

Who are some authors whose books you buy no matter what?

(I don't know what it says about me that there is only one male author on this list, but I don't dislike whatever it is.)

2019 Favorites So Far...

Who can believe we are halfway through 2019 already??? It's certainly hard for me. (Also, where did my summer go?) are my favorite reads of the year this year so far. I'm featuring my 10 Favorites overall and then 5 from each age category I read. It will be interesting to see which of these will make it all the way to the December 31 list!
