 Q: Activity! Who do you want to be? If you could choose any character from a book. What do you think that character looks like and what do you have in common?

      When ever some one asks me this question I instantly go to these three kick-A heroines. Yelena from The Study series by Maria V. Snyder, Celaena from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, and Gin from the Elemental Assassins series. I love these characters because they are so much more then assassins. If you read the books you know what I mean.  I just admire them so much.
     Can I just pick one of the three, you ask. No I can't, because the each have a quality to them that I wish I had. Like Gin's fierce loyalty to the people she loves, Celaena' confidence, and Yelena' ability to think on her feet. That's just some of them.
     What do I have in common with them, absolutely nothing, well maybe Gin's fierce loyalty, but nothing else. These characters are who I strive to be, and no, I do not strive to be a bloodthirsty assassin.

That was my answer, what did you say?
Happy reading


  1. Haven't actually read any of those, but they're all on my TBR list. Can't wait to get to them! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy Friday! :D

    1. You need to read Poison Study (The first book in the Study series) Now. It is such a fantastic book and it is one of my favorite books of all time.

  2. I haven't read any of those either, but they sound interesting. Hopping by via the blog hop.

  3. This might be a weird admission, but I love female assassins in books, they are simply awesome! Also, the cover for 'Elixir' is absolutely beautiful and I love the quote! Hop on over to My Friday Post if you have the time!

    I haven't read these books yet: I guess I need to add them to my TBR list! :)

  9. Is it sad that I haven't read any of those books? I've heard great things about them though. I've wanted to read Throne of Glass for a while as well as Maria V. Snyder's series. I'm glad that you like them enough to want to be one of the characters! I'm an old follower. :)
