๐Ÿ Top Ten Tuesday ๐Ÿ

So Iโ€™ve decided to muscle in on The Broke and the Bookishโ€˜s fantastic Top Ten Tuesday meme! This week itโ€™s a Thanksgiving freebie so I’ve gone for…

๐ŸŒˆ Top Ten Fictional Families I’d like to spend Thanksgiving With ๐ŸŒˆ

We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK but from what I’ve seen on TV it’s like a mini Christmas –ย lots of good grub and spending time with your friends and family. Sounds great! Anyway here are some fictional families I’d like to eat, drink and be merry with for Thanksgiving..

The Weasleys

The Weasleys in the ‘Harry Potter’ series by J.K.Rowling

Arthur, Molly, Bill, Charlie, Percy, Fred, George, Ron and Ginny. Definitely my favouriteย ginger, wizarding family and probably my favourite fictional family of all time. The Burrow looks super cozy and I bet Mrs. Weasly puts on a good spread! If they welcome you like they welcome Harry, you’ve found your second home.

The Finches

To Kill a Mockingbird (Hardback)

The Finches in ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ by Harper Lee

I haven’t read Harper Lee’s new book, so in my mind Atticus Finch is still the perfect father. Noble, caring and compassionate – definitely someone I’d love to sit down and have a cup of tea with!

๐Ÿ

The Murrays

A Wrinkle in Time - A Puffin Book (Paperback)

The Murrays in ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ by Madeleine L’Engle

I like that the Murrays are all quite different but care so deeply for one another. You know you’re going to come home with your brain absolutely on fire with ideas. Plus, it would be super interesting to talk inter-dimensional travel with them round the dinner table!

๐Ÿ

The Peach Crew

James and the Giant Peach (Paperback)

James and the insects in ‘James and the Giant Peach’ by Roald Dahl

Definitely the most untraditional family on the list! I don’t even know what to call them as a collective.ย So yes, technically they are not a family (they are not even the same species) but I love to think of James andย company settling down in New York and the bugs becoming James’ surrogate parents. They’d definitely do a better job than Aunts Sponge and Spiker did!

๐Ÿ

The Mortmains

I Capture the Castle (Paperback)

The Mortmains in ‘I Capture the Castle’ by Dodie Smith

The Mortmains are a real family with great flaws and qualities and are anything if not endlessly interesting. Topaz’s eccentricity, Cassandra’s realism… You’dย definitely not be bored in that household. Also,ย Thanksgiving in a castle would be spectacular, although I’d give the running around outside naked with Topaz a pass!

๐Ÿ

The Gamgees

The Two Towers: The Lord of the Rings, Part 2 (Paperback)

The Gamgees in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien

Sam,ย Gaffer, Rosie and the (thirteen!)ย kids are just the most adorable hobbit family!ย Can you imagine sitting in Bag End in front of the fire, eating some cake with your tea andย Sam retelling his journey with the Fellowship. Thatย would be a dream come true…

As this is a freebie, I’m keen to see what everyone else has chosen for their topic for this TTT. Please leave a linkย in the comments!ย

  1. Aww, I’d love to hang out with the Weasleys… I think they’re my favourite fictional family. But I think I’d most like to have a meal with hobbits, because I’m a big fan of the whole second breakfast idea… ๐Ÿ™‚
