Follow Friday (4)

Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. This week's features are In Which Ems Reviews Books and Reading in the Corner.

This week's question is...

If you could have dinner with your favorite book character, who would you eat with and what would you serve?

Okay, first of all, I am really bad at picking favorites. When people ask me to pick my favorite book, I usually give them a helpless look and shrug because actually listing my favorite books would take far too long and probably bore them. 

However, given that I'm eating dinner with the character, let's arbitrarily limit the pool to characters from a relatively modern version of the world. Otherwise they would totally be freaked out by kitchen appliances and Magic Phone. (This is how I refer to my Android. Don't judge me.) So that leaves us with about half of a gazillion books. (Does anyone know what half a gazillion is?) And because this is a blog hop, let's make it something a little obscure so that I can induce other people to read books I love - hooray brainwashing! 

*flips through mental library*

Aha! I have it. I will have dinner with Mercury from Robert Kroese's Mercury Falls, a brilliant and hilariously irreverent angel. He can do impressive card tricks and make clever dinner conversation. He'll also come in handy if the dinner party somehow gets hit by a Class Five Pillar of Fire. I don't cook all that much, so I think we'll have pasta, but I am all about the baking, so there will be heavenly chocolate cake for dessert (pun absolutely intended).

  18. Hi there,

    Thanks for following:D

    I don;t know this book or character, but sounds like he would be a great dinner date.


  19. I haven't read that series! But I'm with you: picking a favorite is hard work. I managed to choose one though if you asked me just to talk about book characters I love, well, we'd be here all day. :)

    Brand new follower here. Love the blog. :)

I love your comments! I try to respond to them...eventually!

This is now an award-free blog. I love and totally appreciate that you thought of me, but I know myself better than to think I would be organized enough to pass them along, and that doesn't seem fair.
