This Sunday tag is created and run by Steph over at A Little But A Lot. There are some very interesting and fun prompts coming up this autumn so check it out. Today’s topic is Characters/authors you’d like to go for coffee with. This is a wide category and I struggled a bit but I think I’ve ended up with a good list.
Let’s dive into the list of my 6 Characters/authors you’d like to go for coffee with 🙂
I mean who wouldn’t? His imagination is amazing and I would like to learn from him. Yes I know he has his own Masterclass in writing, but a one-to-one tutorial would have been amazing! Or just a random conversation about life and fantasy.
Severin and his found family from The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
This is an interesting group of people and I love how their sitting room is organised with individual seating options, one for each. I wonder what type of chair I would have if I was invited 🙂
We would go out anywhere but stay in Severin’s hotel with our individual drink selection of choice.
It’s 1889. The city is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. Here, no one keeps tabs on dark truths better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. When the elite, ever-powerful Order of Babel coerces him to help them on a mission, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance.
To hunt down the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin calls upon a band of unlikely experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian banished from his home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in arms if not blood.
Together, they will join Séverin as he explores the dark, glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the course of history–but only if they can stay alive.
Darious from Darious the Great
Though we would probably go for tea instead of coffee, or even tea tasting 🙂 Darious would be the perfect tea tasting companion 🙂
Darius Kellner doesn’t make friends easily. He gave up on the Boy Scouts years ago—to his father’s lasting disappointment—and after being diagnosed with depression, he quit the neighborhood soccer club, too. As the only Persian boy at his Portland high school, he’s an easy target for Trent Bolger and his Soulless Minions of Orthodoxy.
Then Darius goes to Iran for spring break (and despite what the Soulless Minions of Orthodoxy say, it’s not to join ISIS). He’s visiting his mother’s hometown, Yazd, to meet his family—and his ailing grandfather—for the first time. But Darius speaks better Klingon than Farsi, and he knows the Silmarillion better than the Shahnameh. Even surrounded by Persians, he can’t fit in.
Not until he meets Sohrab Rezaei, his grandparents’ Bahá’í neighbor. Darius is drawn to the lonely boy who helps water his grandfather’s fig trees, and the two strike up a tentative friendship, filling their days with pick up soccer, trips to the Jameh Mosque, and walks through Dowlatabad Garden.
But things in Iran are far from perfect. Darius’s grandfather’s health is failing. His dad is more distant than ever. And when Sohrab faces family issues of his own, Darius is powerless to help—or to hold their hard-won friendship together.
But he still has to try.
V. E. Schwab
She is the sweetest author I “know”. She write epic fantasy series, and she is very open about her mental health. I admire this author and aspire to be like her. I also read everything by her 🙂
Definitely go for tea with her. Or whiskey …
The Inner Circle from A Court of Thorns and Roses Series by Sarah J Maas
Again who wouldn’t? This would be one of those high teas that rolls into a night out and no-one would know how that happened. haha! Or maybe I would prefer to be invited for dinner in their place .. hmm
Alucard Emry from A Darker Shade of Magic Series by V E Schwab
A trip to the pub with Alucard and potentially his cat would be fun. I wonder where the evening would take us? He is one of those character you don’t really know where life will take. He is unpredictable which makes him so interesting to have tea with 🙂
What do you think?
Let me know!
