Book Blogger Hop! Who is your favorite book character?

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question is:

Who is your favorite book character? I’ll give you a maximum of two choices, but they have to be from different genres!

My answer:

I only need one! Luca Forelli from Lisa T. Bergren's River of Time series (SO EXCITED about Tributary - releasing later this year!!!)

He is SO funny!! If you haven't read the series, but are a fan of YA, you NEED to read it! Seriously it is FANTASTIC!!

Here is a quote from Bourne that I love!

“M’lady,” he said intently, water dripping down over his face too. He leaned down, and for a second, I thought he was going to kiss me. But instead, he touched his forehead to mine. “Dare I believe that you have feelings for me?” he whispered, his lips tantalizingly close.

Which kinda freaked me out.

“You are free to believe what you wish,” I whispered back with a teasing smile, edging away. “There is no law against such things.” I turned back toward the door, intending to go in, but he held it shut, hovering close. Deliciously close again. Teasing me.

“Evangelia,” he said, his lips practically on my ear, his breath tickling my neck. “How long shall you torment me so?”

“That remains to be seen,” I said, smiling up at him from the corner of my eyes.

“Ahh, how you wound me! Such…is the excruciating…pain,” he gasped, pantomiming injury, “of unrequited love.” He stumbled back a step.

  3. Love the quote!!! oh boy, my favorite characters change all the time. Well, I should say I add to the list all the time. so, here it goes: Christian Grey - Fifty Shades by E. L. James. Tyler from One Grave at a Time - Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost. He was only a side character on the last book but he was just too funny. Even it the really bad situations he was beyond funny. I hope I get to see more of him in up coming books.
