Jesss' Dinner Party

I got the idea for this post off Alex's blog a couple of weeks ago and have been trying since to come up with some interesting ideas... And the time to fit it in here!
The post is about 'The Dinner Party Game' - If you could invite five people to a dinner party, who would you choose? The twist with this version of the game is that they are book characters.
There was a peculiar amount of soul-searching for this, since reading was my first love, and I came up with literally hundreds of potential options, mostly from random books I read years ago which no-one else will ever have heard of. After some a lot of careful consideration, these are the five I came up with.

Harry Potter. An obvious, choice, maybe, but nonetheless there's not much I wouldn't give to invite Harry to dinner and be able to cross-question him on everything magical. On top of that, he'd have plenty of exciting stories to share!

Hercule Poirot. I've loved every Poirot book I've ever read (most of them!) and love Agatha Christie's work. I think Poirot would be a fascinating friend and it'd be interesting to see what he'd make of my other dinner guests. If I'm completely honest, this choice is at least half fuelled by my interest in crime and psychology.

Kate from 'Old Magic' by Marianne Curley. This is my concession to 'books no-one else has ever heard of' so if you're familiar with it, please let me know! This is one of my favourite books from my teenage years - I took it out of my high school library probably about thirty or forty times over the seven years I was there and it never got old. I love the story and I love how passionate and real Kate is. She'd make an honest and intriguing addition to my dinner party.

Samantha Sweeting. The main character from Sophie Kinsella's 'The Undomestic Goddess', Sam was appealing with her mental schemes and chaotic personality. I enjoyed her transformation through the book and would appreciate her views on my cooking!
And last but not least...

Winnie-the-Pooh. A. A. Milne's books were some of my favourite as a child, and Winnie-the-Pooh would certainly make an interesting dinner guest. His optimism and fabulous philosophies on life would make him more than welcome at my table, and I'd be interested to hear any honey-based recipes he could share...

Who would you guys choose for your dinner party?!
