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.


  1. 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)

  2. 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 ^_^.

    1. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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. =)

  5. 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!
