Anyway, a warm hello to everyone stopping by from Follow Friday (hosted by the fabulous Parajunkee and the equally wonderful Alison of Alison Can Read). For those who don't know, I'm Kat-- reviewer of mostly YA, fantasy, historical, and scifi-esque fiction.
If you would like to keep up with my reviews, general bookish babblings, or are interested in some giveaways which will be coming up during the month of December (hint, hint), then I'd love to have you as a follower via GFC, RSS, email, or even my sparkling new Twitter account-- whichever you prefer. Leave a comment with your FF, and I will be sure to visit/follow you back!
The FF question this week is:
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?
My answer: Ooh, very tough one! My first thought, like our featured bookworm's, was Hermione Granger, for obvious reasons of her being awesome and somewhat like a magical version of me (and every other bibliophile). Arwen from The Lord of the Rings would be a close second: whether you choose to remain an immortal, magical elven woman or give up your mortality to be with Aragorn (a young Viggo Mortensen is like nearly as good as immortality), being Arwen would be a pretty sweet deal. Arya from the Inheritance (Eragon) books would be another good one-- again immortal elven woman, this one with bad-ass powers and (SPOILER ALERT...A dragon).
If I'm allowed to be a guy character: Gandalf the Grey, also from The Lord of the Rings. To be that wise and powerful and... wizardly, with a wizard hat and a wizard staff and wizard eyebrows. I always wonder: are there female wizards in LOTR? 'Cause that would be kind of sexist, if there weren't. Then again, in a series which only has, count them, three named female characters of any importance...
Anyway, I wish all you visitors and followers a fantastic weekend (filled with lots of quality reading time, rather than exam-cramming, like mine). Hope to see all of you around the blogosphere!
