RCC Challenge - Mysterious Meetup

In the Mysterious Meetup you can have that conversation with your favourite book character of all times. Who would you want to meet? What questions would you ask him or her? Share your Mysterious Meetup with us!

This challenge is actually a lot harder than I expected it to be. I've read so many books I think I shall give my top 3 favourite characters.

From J.K. Rowlings Harry Potter series I'd pick Harry Potter of course! I got the box set of the first 3 just after they released the set in the 90s for Christmas from my Uncle Pat and Harry quickly became one of my closest companions through childhood and even now when I re-read the series I am overcome with the same feelings of closeness.

For me, I think I would ask him if he misses Remus, and what he misses most about him.

My second favourite (right now) is Jamie Fraser from Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. I'm re-reading the first novel right now so I can read the rest this year (hopefully). There's just something about Jamie that I love and adore and I think it's because in a lot of ways he reminds me of Mr. Turning The Pages. Both are really sweet, caring and loving but still have fiery tempers when something ticks them off.

I'd ask him what it's like being in love with a woman from the future who already has a husband. I would think that even though he loves her completely that it would bother him more.

My third favourite character is Cimorene from Paticia C. Wrede's Enchanted Forest Chronicles. I own the omnibus of this series and it has been read at least 20 times since I first read it when I was 11 years old. Cimorene, like Harry was another of my childhood companions. I love her spirit, she's smart, funny and spunky!

I would ask her weather she ever misses anything about her life before she went to live with the dragons, does she miss reading? Or does Kazul have a large library for her to read?

Who are YOUR favourite characters, and what would YOU ask them?


  1. Great picks! I adore Harry...though I read him as an adult (now I just feel old! lol) And I actually picked up Outlander and got Diana's Signature at the Brooklyn Book Festival last summer but still haven't read it. I need to get on that!


    1. You absolutely do! It's such a great read, rich in history and it's one of the best love stories I've ever read! :)

  2. Great picks and i imagine a conversation with Harry would be awesome. here is mine:

  3. Great picks. It's been ages since I read Wrede's work, but I remember that I loved Kazul!

  4. Nice choices. I haven't read any of those series yet.

  5. Harry Potter seems to be popular with RCCleanup-ers this week :) Great pick!

  6. I'd love to meet the Marauders and know more about their lives! But I totally failed remembering that for my post, lol. Awesome answer:)

    If you want to check out my mysterious meetups, they can be found here! :)

  7. Hehe, a lot of Harry Potter picks this week ^^ I've listened to the first part of Outlander on audiobook, but I really got to pick these up in paperback. On audio they're just a little bit too slow.
