Q: Activity! Who do you want to be? If you could choose any character from a book. What do you think that character looks like and what do you have in common?

 Geesh. This is a tough one. I'd love to be a character in Harry Potter of course, and I'm sure Hermione is a popular choice today. She's totally kick butt, smart, and powerful.

The problem with my love of dystopians is that I actually would not want to be any of them, but love reading about them! Who wants to live in a zombie infested world or one that has been killed off for some reason or another?

A couple of characters that would be fun to be for a day, would be Rose or Lissa from Vampire Academy, or Tris from Divergent, because they are totally kick butt heroines as well.

  1. I completely agree about the dystopian characters! A lot of my most favorite characters have pretty hard/scary/lonely lives there for a little while. Things get better, but I wouldn't be in their shoes no matter what.

    I thought about Sookie Stackhouse originally, but then realized that people in her family have been murdered, her friends have been murdered, she's been beaten up, and tortured... and gah! Love her but wouldn't want to be her!

    Thanks for stopping by Auggie-Talk! Really enjoy your blog!

  2. I love your answer! As a dystopian junkie myself, I definitely don't want to be in the world, but I would love to be that cool for just one day! Thanks for stopping by and following my blog!

  3. I kind of agree - I wouldn't want to live and try to fight to survive in a dystopian world! I like my comforts!

  7. I guess you are right if I wanted to be a character from a dystopian book, I would like their personality but not the world they live in, but if they hadn't been born in that world they wouldn't be the characters we love.

  10. My thoughts exactly on the dystopian. I love to read about them, but I wouldn't necessarily want to be in their shoes. :-)
