Alright, guys, I'm not ashamed to admit that the only thing I've read this week has been Sherlock fanfic and one shallow and fairly self-indulgent Nora Roberts novel. So instead of a book review, today brings you…
The Top 3 Book Characters with whom I'd Run Away
Howl, from Howl's Moving Castle
, by Dianne Wynne Jones. Sure, he's a ridiculous drama queen with no heart, a massive amount of angst, and a penchant for the ladies…but let's be honest, who doesn't love that a little bit? He has a moving castle! With a fire demon!
Phedre & Joscelin, from Kushiel's Dart
, by Jacqueline Carey. Yes, the two of them together. For one, anyone who's read the series (which I highly, highly
recommend) knows that to have one of them is to have both. The force of their love changes the course of nations
. Their lives are full of political intrigue, adventure, and pirates! Also, they're very, very pretty, and I'm shallow like that.
And last, but by no means least, Gilbert Blythe, from Anne of Green Gables
, by L.M. Montgomery. This is a guy who, as a kid, falls in love with a girl after she cracks a slate over his head, and then spends the next ten years
convincing her that they're meant to be together. He's attractive, well-educated, and grows up to be a doctor. Let's just say that it wouldn't have taken ten years to convince me
to marry him, okay?
How about you? I know that some character out there has caught your eye, and I'd love to know who it was!
