Top Ten Tuesdays is a book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week we’re asked to think about the characters we’d want with us on a deserted island.
Thinking about this made me realise just how many of my favourite characters come from the Harry Potter series, so I’ve limited myself to just one. Here are the other characters I came up with:
Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games. Every list I’ve read so far has picked her. She can hunt!
Emma, Emma. It’s going to be hilarious to see her have a conversation with…
Bridget Jones, Bridget Jones’s Diary. Before it all got serious.
Mr Darcy, Pride and Prejudice. For some island eye candy and general grumpiness.
Allan Karlsson, The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared. With the adventure(s) he had in the book, he would have a lot of stories to tell.
The Little Prince. He’s another one with lots of interesting, out-of-this-world (literally) stories.
The BFG. He would scare off any predators. They don’t need to know he’s a friendly giant.
Lucky, The Hundred and One Dalmatians. It would be lovely to have a dog racing around in the sand.
‘Professor Andrew Martin’, The Humans. He would provide a unique, hilarious view on everything.
Dumbledore, Harry Potter series. Wouldn’t it be incredible just to sit and listen to Dumbledore? If times were rough, he would offer the best words of wisdom. And then when we get bored of being on the island, he can Apparate everyone off!
