Book Blogger Hop

 It's Friday and it's time for the Book Blogger Hop!  Hosted by Jen at Crazy For Books, it's a weekly gathering of book bloggers to get to know each other and discuss all things bookish!

This weeks question is: Who is your favourite book character?
You know, I have quite a few favourite characters from the chick lit genre.  I love Sophie Kinsella's Becky Bloomwood (Shopaholic series), Meg Cabot's Lizzie Nicholls (Queen of Babble series) and Carmen Reid's Annie Valentine (Personal Shopper series).  But I think my favourite character goes to....

Precious Ramotswe from The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith.

Precious is an irresistible heroine who sets up the first all ladies detective agency in Botswana.  She is warm, compassionate, thoughtful, and for her it's not about solving crimes but helping people with personal problems.  Every book I have read in the series I am just taken in by Precious.


  1. I'll have to check out that series, Precious does sound like an awesome character. And Becky Bloomwood is awesome! :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm your newest follower.

  2. I will have to watch the show when I get a chance!
    Happy Friday :)

  3. I love this character and the show. Must read the novels too.
    happy reading and if applicable, Happy Mother's Day.

  4. I wholeheartedly agree with you - she is such a wonderful character - such spunk - wonderful female role model.
