The Literary Dinner Party Book Tag

Friday, February 19, 2016 with 3 comments

I didn't have anything planned for today's post and I saw that Nereyda and Nick just posted this tag the other day and it looked fun and I'm bored at work, so here we are. =) It apparently originated back in 2012 with Booktuber NEHOMAS2. I changed a couple of elements but it's mostly the same.

One character who can cook/likes to cook


Ideally, I was hoping for a hottie who can cook for this category, but I had trouble remembering any. But then I remembered that Hudson from Bittersweet baked some AH-MAZING cupcakes, so at least we'll have dessert, right? ;0)

One character who has money to fund the party

Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, #3)

There was no question who fit this bill. Gansey is filthy rich, but he shares the wealth without even thinking about it. My kinda guy.

One character who might cause a scene

A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)

There is no doubt in my mind that Lila Bard will cause some trouble at this dinner party. But it'll be interesting, that's for sure.

One character who is funny/amusing

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3)

Thorne will keep everyone entertained with his antics. Plus, he'd be pretty to look at. :)

One character who is super social/popular

Lair of Dreams (The Diviners, #2)

I adored Evie O'Neill the minute she stepped on to the page, and I honestly don't think there's anyone who couldn't love her, even if she does tend to push people's buttons. Evie will be the one to break the silence when there's a lull in the conversation.

One villian

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)

I love a good villain, but I also love a darkly attractive, possibly redeemable villain. I'm still holding out hope for The Darkling. However unrealistic it may be. He'll just sit there, quietly brooding and it will be glorious.

One couple – doesn’t have to be romantic (but who are we kidding?)

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)

Oh man, the snark would be flying with Ezra and Kady in attendance. Their heated banter would be just the thing to take everyone's attention off whatever obnoxious thing Gansey just said without even realizing it. ;0)

One hero/heroine

The Crown of Embers (Fire and Thorns, #2)

HECTORRRRRRRR!!! Forever and ever and ever. He is the ultimate hero and he will save us from whatever transpires tonight. Whether it be thanks to one of the guest or their many foes.

One underappreciated character

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)

I feel like the awesomeness of Lucien's character is undermined by how brightly Tamlin and Rhysand shine in this book. We'll make sure he shines here at this dinner party. Also, he and Hector are both a little protective, so I think they'd get along well.

One character of your own choosing

Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass, #4)

Aelin Ashryver Galathynius is a force to be reckoned with and would make for a challenging party guest, but she does love the finer things in life. I bet she'd love Hudson's cupcakes! Also, I'm hoping to reunite her with the next guest on my list, and that will just make everyone in attendance go, "Awwwwww!!!" :D

One character you'd like to rise from the dead to attend your party

The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass, #0.1-0.5)

I cried a thousand tears when I finally went back and read this collection of novellas. Sam Cortland's death was one of the hardest I've ever experienced in a book. Aelin/Celaena deserves to at least get to tell him goodbye.

One supernatural character

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)

Karou is a chimera, so that'll be interesting, but she's also pretty well-traveled, thanks to all that tooth-collecting she's done, so she'll have loads of stories to tell.

One character you'd just like to have on display at your party

Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1)

Raffe. And I don't think anything more needs to be said on the subject.

One "plus one" for you ;)

Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)

Sturmhond may not have been the ultimate hero of the Grisha trilogy, but he was always my favorite.

Sixteen attendees in all, counting myself, and I managed not to make it a total sausage fest, lol. Also, I tried to invite people I thought had a chance of surviving if everyone turned on each other. :P I think this will be a dinner party these guests talk about for years to come...

Who would you invite to your literary dinner party?


  1. Oh my, this sounds fabulous! And Sturmhond is an excellent plus one. ^_^

  2. If Gansey's there, I want to crash! I love him. =) Plus, good call. It's expensive to host a dinner party- food, decor, etc. Even just my kid's bday party feels like it costs a pretty penny!

  3. That was interesting though hard to read!!
