Today’s challenge is created by Lolo Fangirl, and in this challenge, I have to pick two of my all time favourite characters, and even though they are both my favourites, choose one as the winner. This is the ultimate character face-off. For mine I have decided to go with two of my favourite female heroines, Katniss Everdeen and Hermione Granger.
Character #1: Katniss Everdeen
(Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins)
Who: Katniss is the heroine of The Hunger Games, and becomes the symbol for the districts’ rebellion against the Capitol.
Pros: Great fighter, cares a lot about her sister, fiercely loyal
Cons: Obsesses over guys, kind of loses it in Mockingjay, indecisive
Character #2: Hermione Granger
(Harry Potter series by JK Rowling)
Who: Hermione is the heroine of Harry Potter, best friend to Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, and the smartest witch of her age.
Pros: Incredibly smart, never apologises for who she is, fiercely loyal, brave, stands up for her own opinions
Cons: Can be a little annoying (first two books), sticks to the rules (okay this kind of goes out the window pretty quickly but it’s annoying at first), limited sense of humour
Winner: Hermione Granger
I do like Katniss, at least in the first book, but I grew up with Hermione. Hermione was someone I aspired to be like, who I looked up to and she shows that mental strength can be just as important as physical strength.
So there’s the second challenge of then readathon, I am 36% through my current book, so should be on track to get to 50% before the end of the read-a-thon.
