It's been quite a while since I've joined the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Crazy for Books, so I figured I'd try to join in more often. The following question, I am hoping, will illicit some incredible answers. After all, everyone has a favourite book character or two!
Who is your favorite book character? I’ll give you a maximum of two choices, but they have to be from different genres!
This is tougher than I thought! I've racked my brain, thinking over the last year of reading, mulling over the possibilities, and I do agree that Katniss is one of the strongest female protagonists I've ever had the pleasure to read of. However, since I know soooo many of you are YA lovers and will probably pick her too, I've decided to go the route of the mystery novel. Protagonists in this genre are many and famous too. Considering all possibilities, and recalling those mysteries I've read of late, I still have one favourite series, that of Death on Demand written by Carolyn Hart (the latest I've read is Dead By Midnight). Her protagonist, Annie Darling, is a strong, curious accidental sleuth. She never really sets out to be a sleuth, but the mysteries always seem to come to her. Perhaps it is because she owns a mystery bookstore? For whatever reason, I like her for what she stands for. She is an entrepreneur; she's in love with her incredibly handsome husband, Max; she loves to read and devours mysteries (of course!); and she is incredibly clever. Never one to feign from danger, especially if she is out to save someone; she's constantly out there for the good of another. Annie is involved in her community, runs a book club, assists her husband on matters of inquiry (since he is not a licensed PI, he advertises that he solves problems). She may seem perfect, but she's not. She can be reckless, sarcastic, and funny by turn. She would be the perfect friend because you know she will always have your back. That is why I chose Annie Darling as my favourite book character.
Now it is your turn. Who is your favourite book character and why?
