The best lunches involve catching up with good friends, laughing over delicious food, and helping friends with life problems. My seduction island, aka Operation Ralston, didn’t provide opportunities to hang out with the best and brightest females. I now have an opportunity to fix that oversight.
Ah, the ultimate mean girl. Johanna’s snarky attitude and fun-loving personality will be delightful. Plus, she could beat up on anyone who may bother us.
Sydney Sage, Bloodlines Series, by Richelle Mead
Sydney started out annoying, but she sure grew on me. She’s smart and conversant on almost everything, making her a great lunchtime companion.
We will just have to make sure she actually eats something.
Jessica Darling, The Jessica Darling Series, by Megan McCafferty
Jessica has a really dry and sarcastic sense of humor, which I appreciate. Though she can be annoying and melodramatic, she’s a fairly typical teenage girl dealing with teenage girl problems. The perfect types of problems to share over lunch.
Rose Hathaway, Vampire Academy Series, by Richelle Mead
Rose is hilarious. Her bitchiness will be a welcome addition…assuming it’s not directed at us.
You can read my review of Vampire Academy if you want to experience the full awesome that is Rose Hathaway.
Mae Koskinen, Age of X series by Richelle Mead
Yes, Richelle Mead gets the high honor of having three characters from three different series invited to my lunch table. I’m sure she’s pleased.
And Mae is here for largely the same reasons Rose is here. She’s a badass. Together, she and Rose can serve as our lunch table bodyguards. Maybe after lunch they will teach us some sweet moves.
For my full feels on Mae, you can read my review.
Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, by J.K. Rowling
Obviously, the Harry Potter crowd has to be represented. Hermione is smart and has vocal political and social views (S.P.E.W.), which should make for lively lunchtime conversation.
Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter, by J.K. Rowling
No offense to movie Ginny, but I want book Ginny for my lunch. Book Ginny is strong, practical, and willing to help. When Harry needs her, she is always there with a Fred and George worthy scheme.
Annabeth Chase, Heroes of Olympus, by Rick Riordan
Have you noticed the theme of smart, strong women at my lunch?
Annabeth is full of knowledge, particularly about Greek gods—a subject that I love. I would be super pleased to hear her wax poetic about the gods over some delicious lunch.
Frankie Landau-Banks, The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, by E. Lockhart
Frankie is a force of nature—one you definitely want on your side. She can pretty much do anything, which she proves over and over again with her ridiculous schemes and pranks. Like Hermione, Frankie also has strong social views and isn’t afraid to make them known. If nothing else, she will certainly make lunch exciting.
Cather Avery, Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell
Ah, Cather. The socially awkward—but hilarious—reluctant college student of my dreams. She’s funny, imaginative, and just an all-around good person. You can read my review of Fangirl to hear more reasons why I love her.
