This was one of those topics I could discuss for hours. If any of us ever meet in person, ask me this question if you want to see me poke my head out of my shell! (I’m often a little quiet and shy at first with new people).
Character: Anne Shirley from L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables series
Why: I adore it when talkative, extroverted people make the first gesture of friendship, especially when they’re as personable as Anne. Our personalities couldn’t be more different from each other, but our shared love of books and baked goods would give us all sorts of things to discuss.
Character: Sankofa from Nnedi Okorafor’s Remote Control. (My review is here).
Why: She’s the sort of character who needs friends who move slowly and are highly respectful of her boundaries. I’m excellent at both of those things. It would be cool to have a chance to ask her about how her powers work and what she plans to do next in her life.
Character: Yetu from Rivers Solomon’s The Deep (My review is here).
Why: Our personalities are so similar! We’re both quiet, easygoing folks who enjoy learning new things and exploring. There’s definitely something to be said for companionable silence sometimes. Maybe she could teach me some new swimming strokes, too.
Character: The hobbits and the Entwives from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series.
Why: Honestly, who wouldn’t want to have a dinner party with hobbits? They’re peace-loving, jolly, and kind folks who are also fantastic cooks. I’d want to meet the Entwives because I’ve wondered what really happened to them ever since I read this series. In my opinion, they survived and eventually reunited with their husbands, sons, brothers, and other male relatives.

Great list. I would want an invitation to the Hobbit/Entwive dinner party too.
Anne came to mind immediately when I saw that title. She, Hermione Granger, and Bertie Wooster..XD
I want to come to the dinner party as well!!
You’re totally invited. 😀
Dinner with the hobbits would be FUN! What a great addition to this list!
Thank! I’m glad you agree there. Wouldn’t their food be delicious?
I agree on Anne Shirley. She’s a great character.
