Fall Into Books Reading Challenge: Day 8 #FallinBooks

This Challenge is Hosted at I Am A Reader & Co-hosted at Clean Wholesome Romance.

You can participate a little or as much as you want. Choose just 1 day to join in, participate every day, or come and go as your time allows.

Having to narrow down just one favourite character is a really tough ask, because even if I love a book, I may not particularly like the characters (see Wuthering Heights).

But if I absolutely MUST nominate just ONE character, it would be:

Rose Hathaway

from Vampire Academy

by Richelle Mead.

Rose is the epitome of a kickass strong female character.

She’s what is known as a ‘dhampir’ – the half-blood guardians of Moroi vampires. She’s sassy and smart, tough, but reacts often without thinking, which gets her into plenty of trouble.

Her best friend is a vampire called Lissa, and she is sworn to protect her from the dangers of their world.

I think the book series is wonderful, and Rose is an awesome character.

Fun facts! In the film version, Rose is played by Zoey Deutch, who also played Sam in my favourite book-to-film adaptation, Before I Fall. So I kind like Zoey Deutch A LOT.

Second fun fact: Zoey Deutch is the daughter of Lea Thompson, who played Marty McFly’s mother in the Back to the Future trilogy. You can see the facial similarities in Zoey! Google it.

Honourary mentions:

Sydney from the Vampire Academy spin-off, Bloodlines.

Hermione from Harry Potter.

Yelena from Poison Study and Avery from the Healer Series, both by Maria V Snyder.

Lyra from Northern Lights by Philip Pullman

Lirael from Lirael by Garth Nix

Fire from Fire by Kristen Cashore

Rachel from Animorphs by K A Applegate

Katniss from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Waylander from Waylander by David Gemmell (not YA)
