Yakkety Yak – Characters I Want to Visit

Yakkety Yak...Let's Chat

So, summer is the time of visiting for me and it has me thinking about so many book characters and their settings that I want to see.  I’ve decided to pretend that is possible and made a list of several I wish to encounter for realsies.  Humor me and then share with me which book character or place you would like to visit if you could.

First off, I want to drop in on the gals living down in Carolyn Brown’s Cadillac, Texas.  I want to go and sample Carlene, her cousins, and their mother’s chili at the chili-cook off festival while listening to the chit chat about small town happenings while staring at handsome cowboys.

Review A Cursed Embrace by Cecy RobsonNext, I want to hang out with Celia and her sisters from Cecy Robson’s Weird Sisters series for a night on the town in Tahoe because mayhem always ensues for these cursed witches and I love a good dust-up now and then, but before that happens I’ll get to experience their sisterly togetherness for myself.

I’ll drop by Ruby Dye at her Curl Up and Dye shop in Sharon Sala’s Blessings, GA to look a treat and come away with some great relationship advice. Maybe I’ll spot the next pairing she’s busy helping find their way.

  1. Taking a census trip with Heather Long’s Shaw Sullivan to see all the extraordinary off-world places and do some alien and people watching with him and his motley crew would be highly entertaining.

And because I need a good mechanic now and then, I want to visit Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson at her garage. If Stefan just happens to be dropping off his Scooby Doo van for repairs or Adam wants to swing by and pick Mercy up for lunch while I’m there, I won’t complain.

So there are a few.  My list is long so I can store up visits for many a summer.  What book character would you go visit?  Do Tell!

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

    What a fun topic, Shari and a great idea. You actually chose 2 of my fave authors – Carolyn Brown and Sharon Sala. With the humid heat of NC, I sure wish I could remember any author who has a setting in North Dakota, Alaska or iceland right now! (lol)

    • It is very fun to plan a pretend trip to better temperatures. I like the way you think, Ro! 🙂

  • Oh what a fun topic. I’m so on board with Mercy and if any of the wolves from Adams pack stop in, YA! I’d also want to drop in on Nevada Baylor and her family. And, last I already live near San Fran so I’d like to hope over seas and visit the Bear clan from Psy-Changeling Trinity series ^_^.

    • Thanks, Angela! Oh yeah, we will do Mercy and the pack for their Sunday Brunch, okay? Can I come hang when you visit Nevada and then Nalini’s Bears?

  • Can I go with you when you visit Mercy? Let’s make sure we send Adam an invite while we are there!

    • You sure can, Carole! We’ll make a group field trip of it. 🙂

  • Oh any of Brown’s series would be an absolute hoot! I wouldn’t turn down a surprise visit with Adam either. lol Good call 😀

    • That was my way of thinking, too. We can drop in on them together. Haha!

  • oh some nice characters there!

    • Thanks! Would be fun to visit them, right?

  • oh I agree….all of these settings would be wonderful to just visit like doing a Mary Poppins routine (oh how I wish we could do that for real). I think for me especially, Carolyn Brown’s settings are the BEST and it makes me wish I could live there.

    • Wouldn’t this be so fun? We can go to visit Carolyn’s folks together.

  • Karen

    I think I would want to join in on some of the road trip books I’ve read. then I can see a lot of places lol

    For What It’s Worth

    • Yes, fun to see the different places along with the characters, Karen.

  • I think I’d want to visit the Carpathian Mountains in Christine Feehan’s Dark series and meet some of those yummy Carpathian males. lol

    • Oooh yeah, good call, Mary. I need to read that series for sure.

  • Hmmm, of these, I think that town in Tahoe sounds good. 😀 I would love to visit the world of Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton! Deserts have always intrigued me (though idk how I would handle the heat). 😉 Lovely post, Sophia!

    Have a great week. =)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    • That’s why this virtual travel is so perfect. No real heat just a cool world and people to visit. 🙂

  • I would like to visit the Breed world that Dannika Dark has written about in all three of her wonderful series. Of those books, I would visit Silver and Logan’s(from the Mageri series) apartment and while there visit her mentor Justus, who also happens to own the apartment building. If Simon were to stop over, I wouldn’t mind that at all. My favorite series!

    • You have a great plan, Lorna. All in one shot with one visit.
