Top Ten Picks: Fictional Characters
The next top ten picks is all about favorite fictional characters ... from literature, television, movies, etc. This was really tough for me but here goes (in no particular order) ...
I'm kind of cheating for my #1 - I'm going to say the Little Women created by Louisa May Alcott. Although I tend to most identify with Jo, I just love each and every one of the sisters and CANNOT pick just one.
#2 - Belle from Beauty and the Beast
I love the idea of a Disney princess that defies the typical blond beauty look of a princess. Belle is a brunette. She's SMART - loves to read, is sensible and cares deeply about her family. She is outspoken and is not interested in the frivolous. She is very compassionate and caring.
#3 - Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series
From the moment that I first read Harry Potter, I completely and utterly related to Hermione Granger. Smart and a bit awkward, she reminded me a bit of me. Although she's much smarter than me, I do relate to the overachiever in her! And I love what a STRONG female character she is! She just ROCKS!
#4 - Michael Scott from the Office
#5 - Sookie Stackhouse
#6 - Claire from The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
#7 - Jack McCall from Beach Music by Pat Conroy
#8 - Delores Price from She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb
#9 - Lisbeth Salander
#10 - Brenda Walsh from 90210
Okay, that's it for my top ten ... what about you, what are some of your favorite fictional characters? Leave a comment and let me know!
