Follow Friday #3

It's time once again for Follow My Book Blog Friday, hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View and Alison over at Alison Can Read! Check out their pages and this week's featured blogs: Jagged Edge Reviews and A Neverending Fantasy!

This week's Follow Friday question is:

"If you could pick one character in a book, movie or television show to swap places with, who would it be?"
My immediate response, since I just finished re-reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, is Hermione Granger. I already relate to her in a lot of ways, so it's an easy pick for me - frizzy hair, nose in a book, can't keep her mouth shut in class most of the time...she's sometimes a bit more bossy than I am, though. I was asked to be Hermione at work one year around Halloween, back when I was in high school and worked in a gift shop at Six Flags theme park.

I was introduced to Twilight when a former co-worker mentioned that I reminded her of Bella. I was curious enough to read the book, haha, and I do see elements of myself in her as well. Introverted, pale, a little awkward and a bit of a klutz. I don't know if I would want to BE her, though. Blood doesn't bother me, and the idea of a love that really does last forever is very appealing to me, of course, but I don't know. I've seen the other movies, but maybe I need to read the rest of the books before I could say whether or not I'd mind switching places with her. My favourite character from the series, though, is Alice. Some of you, if you have seen the not-thumbnail version of my profile picture, may or may not have recognized the choker I'm wearing as a retail replica of hers.

I would switch places with Elizabeth Bennet, Emma Woodhouse, Anne Elliot or Marianne Dashwood in half a heartbeat. Mr Darcy, Mr Knightley, Captain Wentworth or Colonel Brandon? Yes, please.


  1. I agree with Hermione! I'd love to swap places with any of the characters from Harry Potter to be honest, it'd be great :)

    Have a nice weekend & happy reading!

  5. Hermione seems to be a popular one! Alice is my favorite Twilight character too :)

    I'm a new follower :D My post

  6. I definitely agree with Alice! Rosalie was actually my favorite character. (female, anyway) I wouldn't want to be her though. I'd probably go with Alice if I was a Twilight character.

    Thanks for stopping by mine!

  7. I see a lot of Hermoine in myself too and apparently for all of us book bloggers she seems to be the popular choice.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Hermoine is a good choice! And Harry's world is an awesome world as well. Great choice there. Totally agree with it. ;)

    Thanks for stopping by Kindle Fever! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  9. Hermione Granger is a popular choice this week it seems. Who wouldn't love to do magic. Old follower. Come visit me over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love Blog.

  10. Hermoine is a popular answer! Thanks for stopping by my blog! New follower!

  11. Hermione is probably the most popular answer. I already have frizzy Hermione hair though!

  12. Awesome answer! The question is who wouldn't want to be Hermione. She is smart, pretty, clever, resourceful, fun, etc! And the Jane Austen girls rock in their own way. Bella...well I'm not a fan.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  13. Ha ha, Austen wrote great love interests, didn't she? I don't know if they're worth going back to a time before women's rights, but they certainly make it tempting.

    Alice is my favourite Cullen, too.

  14. Anne Elliot! YES! Thanks for stopping by my blog, happy Follow Friday! :)

  15. Yea, although I liked the Twilight series, I don't know if I would like to be Bella. I think after a while Edward would have drove me nuts.

    Beth ^_^

  16. I considered adding all the main heroines of Jane Austen novels, so I appreciate your list.

    Thanks for visiting.

    My Head is Full of Books

  17. Hermione is so awesome! :-D

    I also love your last answer - I would swap places with Jane Austen's female characters too, just to be on the receiving end of the attention of those guys!!
