Dreamy December Days Read-a-Thon, there is a challenge! Today's challenge was to share characters that you really love.
1. Princess Cimorene from the Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C Wrede. I loved Cimorene so much as a kid. I would imagine that I was her and tell myself stories of her adventures. She was kind, clever, and could cook.
2. Alexia from the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger. I discovered the PP series a little over a year ago. After I discovered this series, I wanted to be Alexia. She is kind, clever, and is married to a very handsome werewolf. ;)
3. Harry, Hermione, and Ron from the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling. I used to imagine that I was Hermione and dating Ron when I was younger. I really loved Hermione, again because she was kind and clever but she was far from perfect, which was comforting for me. :)
I finished reading Insurgent by Veronica Roth and The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I continue to be "eh" about the Divergent series, but OMG, I LOVED The Darkest Minds. Granted, The Darkest Minds did have a few world building problems, but the pacing was fantastic. This story moved like no other. I really enjoyed the ride. I also started Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. I keep finding myself making excuses to read just one more chapter. :) I am one-third of the way through the book, and I just started this afternoon. It is super cute.
