Because this is me catching up, (see yesterday’s post) I don’t believe Jenni has a linky up for this anymore. However, if you’d like to join in, or get more information, visit Jenni’s blog HERE
Today’s topic: a character who you can relate to the most
This is actually such a hard question because I relate to a lot of characters! One of my favorite characters, though, is:
“Around the world, black hand prints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.
In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grows dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherworldly war.
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real, she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”, she speaks many languages – not all of them human – and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.
When beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?”
Why I love her:
In the first book, Karou is torn between her secret life working for a ‘monster’ and her human life on Earth. She is constantly running off to do errands for Brimstone (her employer/father figure) and leaving her human friend behind. It may pale in comparison, but I always felt this way with blogging. I think my fellow bloggers can agree that it’s weird to tell people about your blogging in real life unless they’re other bloggers. So I just wouldn’t tell people and I would always have to leave or stay up really late to get my blogging stuff done and I couldn’t tell anyone why. It’s because of that that I really identify with Karou. She also feels really out of place which I can definitely identify with!
What character do you identify with?
