Follow Friday (10)

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison @ Alison Can Read. Each week, we answer a different question so you can get to know your blogger friends a little better!

This Week's Question
If you could pick one character in a book, movie or television show to swap places with, who would it be?

My Answer
If I could be any character in a book, I'd want to be Calla Tor from Andrea Cremer's Nightshade (and Wolfsbane). I honestly think that Calla is one of the greatest "written" role models for teenage girls. I even had the pleasure of meeting Miz Cremer at ATBF and telling her that at Austin Teen Book Festival last weekend (and get my copy of Wolfsbane signed!)She's strong and confident, and I think that the way she handles herself when problems arise can really teach people grace under fire. Sure there are some things that Calla has to deal with that I wouldn't want to handle (hello, arranged marriage anyone?) But all in all, she's fabulous. And it never hurts that she's got two swoon-worthy boys panting (lol) after her. Team Shay! If you haven't read this awesome series, you can check out my review of Nightshade here.

This week's Feature Blog is A Neverending Fantasy! So head on over and show 'em some follow love, eh?

Who do you think you'd like to be?

Don't forget to enter the Big Bad Halloween Giveaway going on from now until Oct. 31! There are some really great prizes!

Cheers and Happy Friday!

  1. Calla is a really good role model. I like that she isn't so doe-eyed teenager only thinking about guys. She's strong and tough and takes on a lot of responsibility leading her pack. I definitely admire her. And yeah, of course the guys don't hurt =)

    I haven't read Nightshade yet. I'm on sort of a break from paranormal and read more contemporary lately, but all those great reviews are luring me to order Wolfsbane and Nightshade.

    I haven't read that series, but I love the name Calla! It's almost like my name, but prettier. lol!

  11. I agree! I think Calla is a great rolemodel and is powerful. She doesn't let the men boss her around and she goes after what she wants. I want to see more strong female characters in ya romances.
    Great post!
