Why I love… Rose from the Vampire Academy Series
This week was another hard pick. I literally though about the hundreds of books that I’ve read and tried to come up with my favorite character! Very hard task. Last year I read the Vampire Academy Series. It’s still pretty fresh in my mind and I would totally read it again! What I like most about Rose is that she is bad ass. I tend to use that term regarding fierce Urban Fantasy heroins, but honestly, that’s the best way to describe them. I recognize that I really connect with strong female characters. There is nothing I dislike more than reading about a weak, “Help, save me!” type of woman, which Rose is the opposite of that. For the most part she’s fearless. She’s also smart, whitty and loyal. Yes, she is slightly immature and bull headed at times, but what 18 year old isn’t? Beyond those moments of immaturity, she is very mature in a lot of ways. She protects her friends and knows what’s important. She does the right thing even when it goes against the grain. Even though Rose is all of this things she is also woman, and has feelings and has been in love and heart broken, and finds love again. Rose has experirence that relationship rollecoaster, but her experience has more extreme ups and downs due to the whole vampire thing. Even when the sistuation is very bleak, she manages to rise the occasion and get through it.
Whose your favorite character and why?
