    My girls were in love with Pippi Longstocking when they were little! Thx for another amusing video!

    Wow, picking a favorite literary character is SO hard. I don’t think I have one, but I guess I would have to go with Claudia from “Interview with the Vampire” ’cause c’mon. She’s a tiny killer doll. You gotta love that.
    The book I’m currently reading is “Wake” by Lisa McMann, but I recently finished White Cat and, as you girls said it is so very awesome! Cassel’s the best.
    Just wanted to say I really admire all of you! Keep up this wonderful blog!

    I can’t wait to read Holly Black’s new book! I’ve seen it all over and it looks so good! Don’t know who my favoriet liturary characters is, there are too many to choose from!

    I don’t think I have a favourite literary character. Hmm…for the sake of providing an answer, I’ll say Adam from If I Stay.

    I’m not reading anything at the moment.

    Keep up the cool posts. :)

    My favorite literary character.. That’s a hard one! Well one of mine would have to be Ethan from Beautiful Creatures, because he’s just awesome. And right now I’m reading Kelly Creagh’s new release, Nevermore.

    My favorite character of all time is Katniss Everdeen and weirdly enough I’m reading Mockingjay. Katniss is someone I admire. She’s strong, not afraid to do something, but she has a really complicated life, which i don’t really want. I admire how she hunts, and how she stays strong through the hardest times.

    Hmm, probably Niall from Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely series. I absolutely love him. Currently I’m not reading anything! How odd! I just finished Wings by Aprilynne Pike. A trip to Borders is needed though. I’m dying to read Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare!

    My favorite character is Hermione Granger. She’s extremely smart, brave, loyal and so much more. She puts others before herself (she could have followed her heart and left with Ron, but she put the cause and her loyalty to Harry first). I could go on and on about her! I love her to pieces.

    My fave literary character would have to be Harry Potter. I’m a sucker for main character drama, and Harry has LOADS of it! Plus, I think he’s such a fantastically well-written character and I love how I feel all his frustrations as I’m reading the books.

    The main book(s) I’m reading at the moment (I read like 10 books at a time) is The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan and Glass by Ellen Hopkins. Both fantastic YA reads by two of my FAVE authors!

    My favourite literary character is… I don’t think I have one, but I think the closest is probably, Bianca de Nevada from the novel “Mirror Mirror” by Gregory Maguire or Lin Fox from the novel, “The Glass Demon” by Helen Grant because Bianca’s character resembles Snow White in the story while Lin really has the experience that is full of suspense. The book I’m reading now is Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.

    My favorite literary character is Georgia Nicolson from Louise Rennison’s Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series. She’s so hilarious and I think every girl can relate to her! Right now I’m reading Lloyd Alexander’s Chronicles of Prydain series for mi sci-fi/fantasy class.

    White Cat is amazing. One of the best endings ever, really. Completely didn’t see it coming.

    My favorite literary character…that’s incredibly hard. I’m going to go with Anne Shirley. I’ve always felt a sort of kinship with that red-headed snippet. She’s such a strong female character, and her personal flaws only make her more endearing. Not to mention that Gilbert Blythe was my first crush EVER.

    I recently finished reading Clockwork Angel by Cassie Clare, and it is AMAZING. Once again, so many male characters that are drool-worthy, and Tessa kicks butt. Seriously. Can’t wait for Clockwork Prince!

    And now I have the theme from the Pippi Longstocking movie stuck in my head. Thanks y’all. Really. :P
