Howdy, neighbor!

It’s Wednesday, so that means the lovelies at YA Highway are sponsoring a field trip. Everybody, on the bus! Today’s topic is …

Which book character would you like most as a next door neighbour?

For the longest time, my answer to this question would have been Jay Gatsby because, c’mon, who wouldn’t want to go to frequent parties like this?


Am I right, or am I right?

But the older (and more curmudgeonly) I got, the more I realize that all that noise would just be a nuisance when I want to sit at home, read a book and drink a cup of peppermint tea before bed. So my current answer is, of course, the Weasleys.


The Weasleys are those neighbors who will lend you a cup of sugar, whip out a wand and help you fix a leak in the sink, keep a close eye on your kids and love them as their own, and maybe even knit your whole family nice, warm sweaters at Christmas. Yes, I pick the Weasleys for sure.

What about you? Which fictional character(s) would you love to have as neighbors?

    Great choices. Isn't it funny how our choice in neighbors change over time?

    The Weasleys are awesome!

    Lol, constant paryting would grow tiresome after a while. :)

    The Weasleys would be fun, as long as no one got singed by a stray wand fight :)

    I picked the Weasleys too. They'd be super fun and kind enough to let you stay for dinner when you didn't feel like cooking.

    I like your idea of Jay Gatsby! I wanna be at that party. :) The Weasleys are a great choice, too.

    I almost chose Nick as one of my dream neighbors because if I died unexpectedly, to have someone like Nick to take care of everything? Yeah. But Gatsby did know how to throw down. :)

    I did choose the Weasleys. Constant entertainment.

    I picked the Weasleys too! Never thought about Gatsby. He would have cool parties.

    Also Weasleys!! They are the most obvious answer. Because they are the best fictional family in the history of EVER

  11. Abby Stevens says:

    The Weasleys are a popular (and most excellent) answer. I so love that picture of them in front of the Pyramids!

    The Weasleys would be fun! Mrs. Weasley would cook for me since I'm completely hopeless in the kitchen, Fred & George would tease me mercilessly (and I would enjoy every moment of it), Ginny and I could go shopping, and I could spent my spare time staring at Ron. Great answer =)

    The Weasleys would be wonderful. Of course, I really like Luna, but her dad is a bit too much.

    What a fun thing to think about. The Weasleys would be great fun. I'm going to ask my kids this question today, thanks for the idea!
