#SixforSunday is hosted by A Little But A Lot, and each week, there’s a different prompt, and you list six books that fit the prompt. The theme for October is Pumpkin Spice Goodness!
This week’s prompt is supposed to be Scary Stories or Characters, but since I don’t read a lot of scary stories, I decided to pick a different topic. Earlier this month, the topic was characters you’d like to go for coffee with, which I’m going to talk about today. I tried to pick characters that I think would be interesting to talk to, because what’s a coffee date without good conversation? I also realize that this list makes it sound like I’m very interested in gossip, but you have to admit that it would be fun talking to these characters.
Lucy Hutton from The Hating Game by Sally Thorne: The Hating Game is one of my favourite books, and since I want to be best friends with Lucy Hutton, I would love to go out for coffee with her. I would love to chat with her about working in publishing and the bookish things she gets to deal with. I would love to chat with her about the games she played and pick her brain about how she came up with some of her ideas. I think some of the conversations I would like to have with her would pair better with a bottle of wine, but hanging out with her would be amazing.
Nicholas Rose from You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle: The main reason I want to go out for coffee with Nicholas Rose is to hear all of the horror stories about his mother. His mother sounds like a nightmare, and I want to hear all about it. I want to hear about the shenanigans that she’s pulled over the years, and I want to hear about his revenge. Once again, this is probably a better conversation for a bottle of wine or two, but it would be fun to have.
Tiffy Moore from The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary: I would love to go out for coffee with Tiffy Moore because she seems like a fun person with a lot of personality. Tiffy works as an assistant editor, and if I remember correctly, she edits lots of crafting books. I want to talk to her about the editing process for crafting books and the eccentric authors she’s dealt with. She has a fun and eccentric sense of style, and she seems like the person I would like to become friends with.
Avery Grambs from The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes: I would love to go out for coffee with Avery Grambs because I want to hear all about the massive house that she inherited. The Inheritance Games is a rollercoaster, and I would love to hear about the things she’s encountered now that she’s super-wealthy. I would love to ask her about all of the random and obscure things she’s run into while living in the house, like, how many different types of coffee they have? Or how many bowling balls are there?
Rachel Chu from Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan: The reason why I would love to go out for coffee with Rachel Chu is very similar to why I would want to go out for coffee with Avery Grambs. In Crazy Rich Asians, Rachel was thrown into this world of insane indulgence and extravagance, and I want to hear all about it. I’m sure she has many great stories about the things she’s encountered with Nick’s family and their travels to see them, and I want to hear about it.
Levi Stewart from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: Last but not least, is Levi from Fangirl. The main reason why I would want to go out for coffee with him is that I want him to make the coffee. Specifically, I want to try his pumpkin mocha breve. Maybe instead of going out for coffee with him, I can meet the other characters on this list at whatever coffee shop he works at.
