Book Blogger Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Book Blogger Hop!  It's THE place for book bloggers and readers to connect each week.

It's hard for me to believe it's Friday already.  With no school this week and Canada Day falling on a Sunday, making Monday the statutory holiday with everything closed, I totally lost track of the days of the week!  For some reason, I keep thinking tomorrow is Monday....every day.

This weeks question is: If you could be a character from any book, who would you be?


When I was a kid there were so many characters I wanted to be - Stacey from The Baby-sitter's Club, Elizabeth or Jessica from Sweet Valley Twins, Aurora from This Place Has No Atmosphere (I wanted to live on the moon!)  But now, that's a much harder question.

There are so many fantastic characters out there to choose from.  I would love to be a character like Evie Flynn in The Beach Cafe by Lucy Diamond who moves to an entirely new area and runs a little place on the beach.  Or Catherine Parkstone in The Tapestry of Love by Rosy Thornton, who moves to a tiny hamlet in France and sets up a small business.  It's not the idea of running away from life that I'm going for but the idea of picking up and moving the family somewhere new.  That is an adventure I would love to take.

What character would you like to be?

  1. Yes! I agree completely! I don't necessarily want to be someone else but maybe go on a new adventure :)

  2. I know. It's really hard to pick only one character.

    Here's my answer: http://vonniesreadingcorner.blogspot.com/2012/07/its-friday-and-its-book-blogger-hop.html

  4. Hello, thank you for visiting my blog at A Well-Watered Garden. Elizabeth Bennet was the first choice that popped in my head.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Those books were GREAT.

    My first thoughts were.....I don’t think I would want to be any character in a book. :)

    But then I thought of two books I loved and listed those characters. :)

  6. I wouldn't mind picking up my things and starting a new life somewhere else: the chance to do something different, to be who you truly are or always dreamed of being. It would be fun!

    Thanks for stopping by Ketch's Book Nook! Happy Reading!

  7. I always loved Mary-Anne from BSC. I haven't read your last 2 choices but I would so be up for moving to a hamlet in France!
