Literary Dinner Party

Fun game from Vonnie in my Bibliophile book group: Invite 11 people to a literary dinner party. Here are mine, according to her criteria:

1. One character who can cook/likes to cook
Lillian from The School of Essential Ingredients

2. One character who has money to fund the party
Any member of the Grigori family from Angelology - filthy rich and supernatural, to boot!

3. One character who might cause a scene
Celia Bowen from The Night Circus - illusionist extraordinaire

4. One character who is funny/amusing
Lord Akeldama from Soulless - Flamboyant, gay, ancient, socially-connected vampire

5. One character who is super social/popular
Jesus Christ from Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

6. One villain
Hilly Holbrook from The Help - Just so I could slap the fire out of her!

7. One couple - doesn't have to be romantic
Juliet and Dawsey from The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Such a fun couple of people!

8. One hero/heroine
Odd Thomas from the Odd Thomas series - an unlikely hero, but excellent just the same.

9. One underappreciated character
The Giver in the book by the same name - What a terrible and great responsibility.

10. One character of your own choosing
Anges Crandall from Anges and the Hitman - description: A food columnist with a deadly temper who occasionally tries to kill her unfaithful boyfriends. What is not to love?!

Fun, Vonnie!!


  1. Lol we should create our own drawings with our favorite characters having a dinner party.

  2. Be it dinners, luncheons, tea parties of brunch, all have their own unique charm. Went for a musical party arranged by my friend at one of the best home studios NYC few weeks back. Set up was exclusive. Beverages and cuisines were tasty as well. Liked the quick and impressive staff services too.
