Top Ten Book Characters That Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fab ladies at The Broke and the Bookish!



1.  Hands down, my number one choice would be Olivia from The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher.  Let's be honest, though, I would not mind at all if Caleb joined her!

2.  One of my latest favorite books is How to Kill a Rock Star -- although I love Eliza, I really want Loring to sit at my lunch table!

3.  Um, every single one of the Rock Chicks please!!!!


4.  Rosalind James' Escape to New Zealand series is my favorite contemporary romance series out there right now and there isn't a main character in any of the books that I wouldn't love to sit with although I'd probably get along with Hannah best.

5.  If anyone would be a great and patient companion, it would be Anne Elliot.

6.  Kat and Daemon from the Lux series by JLA -- probably because there are so many epic lunch room scenes in this series and I love both characters.


7.  I don't know anyone that hasn't read and loved the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead who didn't also want Georgina to be their new best friend, myself included!


8.  Blue and all of the Raven Boys from the series of the same name by Maggie Stiefvater are so interesting that I think they would ensure that lunch was never boring. 

9.  Kate from Things I Can't Forget by Miranda Kenneally is the most like me when I was in high school and there is comfort in that.
  


10.  And just to keep things really interesting, Senna from Mud Vein would have to be at my lunch table.  What can I say?  Tarryn Fisher writes the most complex, infuriating and damaged souls out there.

Waiting on Wednesday: Dark Debt (Chicagoland Vampires #11) by Chloe Neill

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on:  
Dark Debt (Chicagoland Vampires #11) by Chloe Neill!!



From Goodreads:
Between standing Sentinel of Cadogan house and making society appearances with House Master Ethan Sullivan, a new member of the American Association of Vampires, Merit has her hands full. The last thing she needs is trouble, especially of the deadly kind.

But when an old friend shows up in need, Merit can’t refuse. Morgan Greer, Master of House Navarre, has gotten himself into serious debt with a dangerous Chicago crime syndicate known as the Triad. And they’re willing to exact more than a pound of flesh for payback—unless Merit can find a way to stop them.

Only the Triad’s connections go deeper than Merit knows, and even one wrong move could be her last…
I finally read books 9 and 10 of this series when book 10, Blood Games, came out recently.  I am happy to report that this series is back on track and the Ethan/Merit dynamic is better than ever!!!!  So excited for the next book in the series!!  Dark Debt is scheduled for release on March 3, 2015 and you can pre-order HERE!!

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday??

Waiting on Wednesday: Ashes to Ashes (Burn for Burn #3) by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on:  
Ashes to Ashes (Burn for Burn #3) by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian!!



New Year's Eve ended with a bang and Mary, Kat and Lillia may not be prepared for what is to come. 
After Rennie's death, Kat and Lillia try to put the pieces together of what happened to her. They both blame themselves. If Lillia hadn't left with Reeve... If Kat had only stayed with Rennie... Things could have been different. Now they will never be the same. 
Only Mary knows the truth about that night. About what she is. She also knows the truth about Lillia and Reeve falling in love, about Reeve being happy when all he deserves is misery, just like the misery he caused her. Now their childish attempts at revenge are a thing of the past and Mary is out for blood. Will she leave anything in her wake or will all that remain be ashes?
I recently read the first two books in this series and absolutely loved them!  I am definitely waiting on book #3 because book #2 ended with a crazy twist!!  Ashes to Ashes is scheduled for release on September 16, 2014 and you can pre-order HERE!!

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday??
