Today I’m taking part in the Book Blogger Hop, a weekly hop hosted by Billy B at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer (originally created by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books). You can see the hop schedule here.
“Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.”
Question of the Week: Have you ever found yourself acting like a favourite character in a novel? If so, which one?
(submitted by Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books)
The character that instantly springs to mind for me is Hermione from Harry Potter. As my sister will attest, I do have a tendency to become a bit of a bossy know-it-all regarding subjects I’m passionate about. I try to reign this in, but sometimes I just can’t help myself. Nobody’s perfect, right?
Have you ever acted like a favourite book character?
A lot of people are answering Hermione! I don’t blame them though. So many of us are very bookish and love to expand our knowledge. As for me, I don’t have any characters that I act like. Which is a bit of a bummer!
Yes, Hermione is the stereotypical bookworm so I suppose a lot of us can relate to her. I don’t know if it’s so bad not acting like literary characters, a lot of them act foolishly and make a lot of mistakes.
? love your answer.

Thanks for dropping by, I will go and check out yours.
Hermione is a great character to act like. I have many traits that are similar to Hermione’s.
I think she’s a great role model for young girls and a lot of book bloggers seem to relate to her.
WELCOME to the BLOG HOP – so nice to see you joining in.
LOVE your animations.
Hope to see you again on the HOP. Thanks for coming by my blog earlier.
Thank you, Elizabeth. I enjoyed taking part.
Hermione seems to be a favourite amongst this hop, lol. I can understand as what bookworm doesn’t somewhat relate to Hermione?
Yes, she’s probably the ultimate fictional bookworm. Thanks for dropping by.
Hmm, good question 🙂 yeah, I think I’m also quite similar to Hermione, now that I think about it 😀
I think a lot of us book lovers can see ourselves in Hermione. She’s a great character-smart, loyal and brave.
HERMIONE!!!! YAAAAASSS!!!! I mentioned her in my own post, too!! She’s one of my favorite characters ever!! Not that I act like a know-it-all (at least, I HOPE not!), but I do enjoy doing a LOT of research on my own, like Hermione does. In my case, I’m not trying to desperately find a solution to a magical dilemma, nor do I have any school assignments. It’s just that I LOVE to research topics of personal interest to me.
Now, when I don my Gryffindor robe, and wave my illuminated HG wand around, shouting, “Wingardium Leviosa!”, I do pretty much start to feel that I am, indeed Hermione Granger!! Watch out, Voldemort!! LOL.
Thanks for commenting on my own BBH post!! <3 <3 ::) 🙂 Sorry for the late comment back….. 🙁
I love researching things too, I can spend hours doing that. I am jealous of your Gryffindor robe and illuminated wand! I just have a regular wand. Thanks for commenting back <3
Just wanted to let you know that I got the robe on Amazon. I also got the Gryffindor tie there. The vest I got on eBay, and I also bought a white shirt at a local Marshall’s store. As for the wand, I bought it at my local Barnes & Noble store. It was $29.99 + tax, but I just HAD to own it!! I also own the Harry Potter illuminated wand, which cost the same. I am a TRUE Potterhead!! Lol. Now I have to bone up on HP trivia….. 🙂 🙂 🙂
That’s great! I have a lot of the books, stationery, T-shirts and home accessories but I’m lacking in the cosplaying department. I feel like I grew up with Harry, as I read the first one when I was about 9 years old and the last one when I was 18, and his birthday is the day after mine. I will “always” be a Potterhead too. Can’t wait to read the books to my daughter when she’s old enough.
snape!from harry potter….i don’t know…but I like being mysterious at first but bam! im the good guy!..thanks for this!…it made me think for a while there…hahahah
Ha ha, I love Snape, he was the ultimate plot twist. We should make “Snaped” into a new verb: “I didn’t like the guy at first, but then he totally Snaped.”
Great pick, I have a few family members who act like Hermione as well, and when I mention this to them. They just give me the look. lol, Thank you so much for stopping by my blog hop last week Tizzy.
Ha ha, I am probably guilty of giving “the look” as well. I enjoyed taking part in your hop.
Well if you’re going to act like a character, Hermione is not a bad one! Sometimes a bossy know-it-all comes in handy 😉
Yes, I am usually trying to be helpful but others perceive it as annoying and pedantic!
LOL gets us all now and again 😉
Glad I’m not the only one!
