The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Who is your favorite character…of all the books you’ve read? Why?
(submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)
I feel like I should answer Stephanie Plum from Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series but she is not the top of the favorite characters list – just the character that I have followed the longest. I’ve been mulling over this all week, and I can honestly say that I have no one favorite character. For most books, I mention a favorite character in that book but no one favorite character is more my favorite than another. I hate not having an answer other than null but that’s it. I wonder if I could truly love so many books if I did have a most favorite character? Each book is a chance to meet a new and sometimes exciting cast that tell me a story that takes me away for a time.
One character that I can mention though is one that I mentioned last week: Arwen, Lady of Rivendell, in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I wouldn’t call her my all-time favorite but like I said last week, she is so cool and I want to live in Rivendell. Just as I typed that though a bunch of other characters zipped through my brain as what-abouts. There is just too many favorites to rank or declare a top of that list.
Do you have a #1 favorite book character?
