Top Ten Tuesday (98)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.

This Tuesday's theme is...

Top Ten Characters 

Who'd Be Sitting at 

My Lunch Table

This was really, really hard. Originally, I thought I'd have trouble coming up with ten characters, or that I'd at least come up with around ten. Instead, I wrote a list of approximately a million characters I'd want at my lunch table. Then I had this really cool idea for how I'd show it to you, but I don't have the skills to do it, can't find everything I need, and ran out of time. Also, I started getting kind of frustrated because I don't know what to do for this post or how I want it to look. In the end, this is how it all turned out.

I had to cheat on this, because there's no way I could pick just ten characters, especially when there are multiple books where I'd pick multiple characters. So instead of this being my lunch table it's my cafeteria. There are ten tables, with ten different groups (and possibly more than ten books in all), and they all have their own name. Welcome to my cafeteria! Tie a napkin around your neck and this post will provide the rest!
