TGIF (6)

A book-question and weekly recap meme hosted by Ginger at GReads.

"Character Envy: If you could be one character from a book, who would you choose & why?"
Ack! This question is so hard. I always admire authors that can make me yearn to be a part of their stories, especially for fantasy or supernatural worlds. I chose three characters from my favourite fantasy series'.

Daine, The Immortals series by Tamora Pierce. - She's so amazing! I would love her ability to both interact with and become animals. Daine also sold me on Tamora Pierce and I'd kill to live in Tortall for a day.

Hermione, Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. - Hermione is the best. As a kid I always looked up to her and admired her. I'd love to slip into her shoes, especially when they were younger and still at Hogwarts, and see what a normal day was like for her. So much emphasis was put on Ron & Harry's shenanigans that often Hermione was left in the dark until needed so I'd love to check out her classes and see if she had any other friends.

Calwyn, The Chanters of Tremaris series by Kate Constable. - Calwyn was one of my first female heroines I ever read in the fantasy genre and I absolutely fell in love. It would be awesome to sing like she does and control the world around her in such an awe-inspiring way. Similar to Tamora Pierce, I'd love the opportunity to explore Tremaris and live in rather than read about the culture. Plus Darrow was really hot in my imagination so cha-ching! 

Did you do a TGIF today? Post your link in the comments below and I'll be sure to check it out!

  3. I love Hermione. I don't know why I didn't think of her when I answered this one. ;)
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Oh that was a tough one, to pick between Daine and Aly. But I chose Aly in the end. :D

    My TGIF

  5. I totally agree it would be cool to know more about Hermione. I love her as well. She is such a strong character and is super clever. I wouldnt mind being her or even having her as a friend. She so sweet and witty love your pick. The other two i am not familiar with but im sure they are great too.
    Please check out who I chose if you get a chance.

  6. Who wouldn't want to be Hermoine?! The other two sound like interesting characters as well.

  7. I didn't even think about Hermione!! Great choice :)

  8. I bet Hermione had tons of guys crushing on her in the classes that we never see her in. It can't have just been Krum.
