Today's topic for "Why I Love Wednesday" is one that I can write about forever...Favorite Character. There are so many characters that I've fallen in love with in all of my reading adventures. Of course the majority of them come from Harry Potter (naturally), but I have loved others: Liesel Meminger from The Book Thief, Charlotte Doyle from The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, Bertie from 44 Scotland Street, Joe Morelli from the Stephanie Plum series, Minnie from The Help, Edgar Sawtelle from The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, Fitzwilliam Darcy from Pride and Prejudice, John Thornton from North and South, and on and on and on...honestly.
But for this post, I'm going with Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games trilogy. Katniss is, for lack of a better word, a badass! She shows what a true heroine should be. While she starts in a place that some might consider a little selfish and contained, her character develops in such a beautiful way that she becomes something to be admired. She loses a lot of her tough, though warranted, exterior and learns to adapt in unexpected situations. Something that people should strive to emulate. Without adaption, there is a lack of evolution (both personal and societal) and Katniss' character shows how change is possible.
*Though I must admit that I do enjoy the Twilight series and the like :)
