It's Friday and It's Book Blogger Hop Time!


Crazy-for-Books is running this Book Blogger Hop to help connect book bloggers with other fellow book bloggers. Here's this week's question:
If you could be a character from any book, who would you be?
My Answer:

After lots of thinking, the character that I would like to be is Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the Wind. During a time when women were expected to be weak and submissive, Scarlett was an incredibly strong and determined woman who did not let anything stop her from getting what she wanted. I also love how mean she was yet still had a heart.

Will I be able to marry three times to get what I wanted like Scarlett did? I don't know. But if I were desperate enough, then yes. What I do know for sure is that I would have realized how important Rhett was to me before it was too late.

  2. Would you believe I haven't read Gone With the Wind? But I'm familiar with the story and that is a fantastic choice. I love how you mentioned what you would have done differently!

    1. Thank you. When you have the time to attack the massive read, I recommend that you do read it, then watch the movie.

  4. Oh Wow....I love your choice. She is awesome.

    You definitely made a wonderful choice. I loved that book, that era, and Scarlett. FANTASTIC!!

    My first thoughts were.....I don’t think I would want to be any character in a book. :)

    But then I thought of two books I loved and listed those characters. :)

    Stop by for my full answer. :)

  5. Love your blog header! Gone with the Wind is my favorite book and I love Scarlett but I wouldn't mind being Melanie either. Love Scarlett for not letting anything get in her way and Melanie for seeing the good in everyone. Great choice!

    1. Yes, Melanie was a good character but her "niceness" was too much for me.

  6. Interesting choice. I haven't read Gone with the Wind or even watch the movie. Not really my cup of tea. But I like the character you discribed.

    Happy Reading!

  8. Oh Scarlett! So agree with everything you said. Those men in her life didn't know what hit 'em! I always loved how strong and stubborn she was. Great choice!
