Let’s Pretend a Bit

I signed-up for Plinky some time ago but have never answered any of the questions on this blog. If you are not familiar with Plinky, check it out. New bloggers might find it useful in creating content for their blog. I know that when I was brand new to blogging, I often felt like I had very little to say or that I was talking to the ether (well, I was). Anyway, today’s question, which I just had to answer is:

If you could be a character from any book you’ve read, who would you be?

Honestly, there are so many characters out there that I have fantasized about at one time or another, but being? That’s an entirely different game. The one that easily comes to mind is Lisbeth Salander. I know, you can’t picture me in dark make-up and leather but let’s forget about the clothes for a moment and the unpleasant things that she has had to endure. She kicks ass. Hands down. The ability to “take care of business” and to do it in such a dramatic fashion. Wow. Plus, she’s smart but  not in an obvious way and lately, she’s rather well off.

Who would you be?

  1. Hmmm…Lisbeth would be high on my list as well. First I want to be able to kick ass and only weigh 88 pounds. Second, I want to know how to hack millions of dollars from rich meglomaniacs. No other female characters come instantly to mind. Maybe Stephanie Plum, only so I could get my hands on Ranger?

  2. I want to be Lisbeth Salander too. She scares me, but I would love to have her attitude and chutzpah once in a while.

    I’ve never heard of Plinky before but I’m going to look into it — thanks for mentioning it.

  3. I’m with you … I answered a form of this question awhile back and I wanted to be Lisbeth Salander too. She just appeals to my need to be a kick-ass heroine sometimes, which is so wildly far from who I am in real life.
