This book club topic is all about characters! If you could hang out with a character, or what the heck, have a whole party with characters, which would you choose? Or maybe it’s too hard to choose favorite characters that way; can you categorize your favorite characters according to genre (paranormal fantasy, realistic, etc)? Or there’s the classic “Who’s your favorite character and why?” Go with whatever suits you and leave a comment to join the discussion please 😀
For me, I have to narrow my favorite characters into weird catergories, so here it goes…
If I was taking an art or photography class, I’d definitely want to hang out with Caitlin from Hold Still by Nina Lacour. She’s incredibly talented and creative, even when she’s trying on purpose to fail. So in the art category of favorite characters, Caitlin’s it.
If I ever put on my own musical, I’ll be calling on Tiny Cooper from Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan. He’s absolutely fabulous and I’m sure he could brighten anyone’s day!
In the world of paranormal fantasies, my BFFs would be Sophie from Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins and Evie from Paranormalcy. They are both hilarious, witty and just all-around cool female characters.
BTW- Some of my former students and I met up at Borders for a real-life book club meeting. We decided to buy and read It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini. We’re hopefully going to meet up again (more are welcome!!) and talk about what we’ve read by that point. If we can’t meet up, I’m sure we’ll blog about it here 🙂 Feel free to get a copy and join the discussion!
