YAY! After a crazy hectic weekend last week, I missed Follow Friday :( But now I'm back and ready to discover some cool new blogs and bloggers! If you didn't already know, Follow Friday is hosted by the fabulous Parajunkee and this week's feature is Nicki J Markus (looks like a very cool site, can't wait to look around more!!!)
Q. The magic book fairy pops out of your cereal box and says "you and your favorite character (from a book of course) can switch places!" Who are you going to switch with?
I love these questions b/c it really makes you think! But I have so many MCs I'd want to switch with, I couldn't pick just one. So, by genre, here are my picks ;)
1) Paranormal: Mercy Thompson from Patricia Briggs's Mercy Thompson Series. She's one of the toughest, smartest chicks in Urban Fantasy, and she's got Adam, Samuel, and Stefan (*sigh*). Plus, she's got the awesomest mentor/father figures around in Zee and Bran. Who could ask for more than that?? As a second paranormal choice ('cause I couldn't choose just one!), I'd go with Harper from Charlaine Harris's Harper Connelly series. She goes through a lot of crap, but at the end of it all, there's Tolliver ;) If you haven't read either one of these series yet, you are seriously missing out.
2) Historical: Margaret Hale from Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South. Two words: Mr. Thornton!!!!
3) YA: Kate Brown from Elizabeth Scott's Perfect You. One of my favorite YAs :)
4) YA w/paranormal elements: Probably Katsa from Kristin Cashore's Graceling.
So, there you have it. My four-pronged, overly verbose answer. Looking forward to seeing you guys's picks!
Have a great weekend,
