Six For Sunday – Books and holidays, a match made in heaven: Characters you’d go on holiday with

It’s time for another holiday based Six for Sunday prompt! Last week I shared some of the fictional places I’d love to visit on holiday and this week I’m sharing some of the fictional characters I’d like to go on holiday with!

Six for Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Steph at ALITTLEBUTALOT. You can find a list of prompts from July to December 2019 here

Characters I’d Love To Go On Holiday With

This Tuesday just past saw me picking out ten bookish besties; ten characters I’d love to be friends with for Top Ten Tuesday. I’ve tried to make this list a little different but I’m afraid there’s some overlap here, after all who wouldn’t want to go on holiday with their besties?

Hermione Granger from Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling

The Wizarding World featured last week as one of the places I’d love to visit on holiday and Hermione featured on my list of would be bookish besties. I think travelling with Hermione would be great, we could visit some muggle places too and I think she’d appreciate visiting some stunning libraries as much as I would. Plus travelling with a witch has to have some advantages, no need for long haul flights for one!

Maura Isles from Rizzoli and Isles by Tess Gerritsen

I must confess my wanting to travel with Maura is based more on the TV version of Maura than the book version, although I’d probably travel with either. TV Maura would definitely know all the best places to visit and would probably have no trouble getting reservations at some fantastic restaurants!

Ellie Wolf from The Rosewood Chronicles by Connie Glynn

So far I’ve only read the first book in The Rosewood Chronicles but I liked Ellie enough in it and there has to be benefits to going on holiday with a princess! A nice private jet, or even just a staycation at her palace!

Kelly Porter from the DI Kelly Porter series by Rachel Lynch

I’m certainly not as fit as Kelly, I certainly can’t see fell running as a regular activity in my future however I certainly inherited a love of walking in beautiful places from my grandma. I can’t think of a better person than local girl Kelly to show me some of the best places in The Lake District, especially some lesser known spots.

Professor John Hartman from The Cogheart Adventures by Peter Bunzl

I adored Lily and Malkin in Cogheart but her father, the famous inventor, Professor John Hartman really intrigued me! I know his beautiful airship was destroyed at the beginning of Cogheart (and I’m still to read the rest of the series so I’m not sure if he gains another one) but I do love the idea of travelling around in one! It might not be as fast as a modern aeroplane but I think there’s something special about the idea of it at least!

Beth Adams from The Girl In The Grave by Helen Phifer

Beth has been through rather a lot by the time we meet her in The Girl In The Grave but despite everything she comes across as a genuinely caring nice person. I’m not sure Beth would really be up for a lot of travelling all things considered but she has a stunning sounding house on the edge of the water in the Lake District so it sounds like the perfect spot for another staycation!

They were my #SixforSunday! If you’ve taken part leave a link to your post below and I’ll be sure to check it out!

    I don’t know if I’d want to go on holiday with either the book or TV version of Maura Isles. I’m fine with reading or watching her exploits, but definitely not experiencing them first hand.
