Today I am joining the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jen and Crazy-for-Books! I've watched the hop from afar for quite some time, always lusting to join, but always fearing I would disappoint and not stick to posting and commenting due to a busy schedule. Well, I still have that busy schedule. But I also still want to give it a ago. The Hop runs from Friday - Thursday, so I plan to join in and post on Fridays and enjoy meeting new bloggers through the linky as the week goes on.
This weeks question:
Who is your favorite book character?
My favorite book character is Hermione Granger. So many reasons factored in this decision. I sat down and thought about a few different characters that I love. Katniss, Alice, Piggy, Norton... the list went on. I ended up settling on Hermione because she was my first instinct and a character that I've related too over the years. I've been fond of the Harry Potter Series since I first read them. Throughout reading and rereading, I have found myself drawn to Hermione. She is strong- a very brave and intelligent girl who grows up during the series. I felt that my stubbornness and occasional bout of "I'm never wrong!" attitude were quite in line with Hermione, but that I too, grew up. As J.K. Rowling has said of her own childhood, I was called a "know-it-all" as well... always masking my insecurities with my academic knowledge. Hermione has a lot of depth- she is not JUST a know it all. I also love the relationship she has throughout the Harry Potter series with Ron. Overall, Hermione is a super strong female character that I can relate to- over and over again.
