Top Ten Characters Who Would Have Sat At My Lunch Table

Hello, there! Today I’m linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for their Top Ten Tuesday. Since I couldn’t think of anything for this week’s prompt, I’m going to do last week’s instead. I know, I’m a cheater.

The prompt is-

Top Ten Characters Who Would Have Sat At My Lunch Table In High School

Let us start out by saying that, as a homeschooler who is still in middle school, I’ve never had a lunch table other than my own dining room table, and the people who sat there were generally my parents or siblings. That aside, let’s begin!

1. Ella from Ella Enchanted

She’s funny, quirky, and bold, and she’s pretty cool! I think we would be fairly good friends and it would be very fun to have her around to lighten things up.

2. Ash from Ash

Ash is quiet and fairly serious, but still interesting and fun. I’d love to get to know her better.

3. Kaisa from Ash

Once again from the book Ash, Kaisa is cool and sporty and basically the opposite of what I am, but still really cool.

4. Kaede from Huntress

Kaede is funny and determined and basically awesome. I could totally see her and Ella getting along really well, and it’d be great to have her around.

5. Edmund Pevensie from Chronicles of Narnia

Can I cheat and say I want two from this universe? Edmund and Lucy are my favourites from this series(actually, nevermind, Aravis and Shasta too.)

6. Pippin from the Lord of the Rings

Pippin is funny and bold and tends to get ignored a lot and is an all around a great character.

7. Lizzy from Pride and Prejudice

She’s my favourite character and bold and determined to go her own way. Not only would she get along with Ella and Kaede really well, I could see her keeping peace.

8. Silverstream from Warriors

Yes, she’s a cat. Shhh. Cats are the best, and she was always my favourite. I could get a lot of petting done that way.

9. Shay from Uglies

She’s cool and fun and brave and she takes initiative when no one else does. Not to mention she’s hilarious.

10. Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles

She’s smart and funny and strong and cool and basically who wouldn’t want to have her around?

That’s all for today! Have a good night/day/morning!

Bookshelf Tag

I was nominated for a bookshelf tag by Nevillegirl at Musings From Neville’s Navel! Thanks, Nevillegirl!

                                                                               Rules

Answer the following questions about books on your blog and then tag five other bloggers. You can answer the questions any way you want, whether it’s on your blog, in a video, or a combination of the two. Then remember to let whoever tagged you know when your post is up so they can read it.

Now, the questions!

1. Is there a book that you really want to read but haven’t because you know that it’ll make you cry?

Suzanne Collins’ Gregor the Overlander series. I’ve heard they’re really good but sad. 

2. Pick one book that helped introduce you to a new genre.

C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia introduced me to fantasy, and to my everlasting love-fantasy is my absolute favourite genre!

3. Find a book that you want to reread.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I loved it, but I can barely remember anything. 

4. Is there a book series you read but wish that you hadn’t?

5. If your house was burning down and all of your family and pets were safe, which book would you go back inside to save?

The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. I love that book with a passion, and it’s the prettiest book I own!

6. Is there one book on your bookshelf that brings back fond memories?

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It’s the first book of hers I read, and I loved the movie even before I read the book, and then I loved the book. 

7. Find a book that has inspired you the most.

Gail Carson Levine’s Ella Enchanted probably inspired me to write the most.

8. Do you have any autographed books?

Sadly, no. Sigh…

9. Find the book that you have owned the longest. 

Probably Catundra or one of Doctor Seuss’ books.

Top Ten Favourite Movies, Part 1

Hello! Today I’m doing a post on my top ten favourite movies. I’m doing five today and five tomorrow, complete with descriptions on why I love them!

In no particular order, here they are!

Inconceivable!

The Princess Bride

Cheesy as this movie might be, it’s one of my all-time favourites. My family quotes it constantly, we watch it every year, and we burst out laughing. We can even practically quote every line in the movie! I’ve loved this movie for a long time.

The dream world...

Inception

Oh, Gallifrey, I absolutely loved this movie. I just watched it recently, with my sister, who is also a fan of the movie. Gorgeous music, edge-of-your-seat pacing, fascinating concept that’s carried out well, this movie has it all. A++, I do recommend it.

Natasha, Clint, and Steve.

Natasha, Clint, and Steve.

The Avengers

Another great movie! I’ve watched it repeatedly and loved it every time. Especially due to the abundance of Black Widow.

Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier

I liked this movie almost more than the first one. It was very dark and fast-paced, and very emotional. You could almost feel the scenes, like you were the characters. I loved it.

Lizzy in a swing.

Pride and Prejudice

A classic among my mom, sister, and I. My brother and dad don’t care for it so much, but I really like it. One of my ‘feel-good’ movies to watch with the family.

The next five will be here tomorrow. Enjoy!
