BTT: I Can Haz Hot Books Pleaz?

March 1, 2012

A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.

Ted asks:

Have you ever fallen in love with a fictional character? Who and what about them did you love?

I think my favorite, recently has been Gale from The Hunger Games. Though he didn’t end up as perfect as I would have liked, for most of the trilogy he was, you know, like to die for swoon-worthy. He was tall, dark and handsome but in a rebel with a very serious, subverting the dominant paradigm cause. He also loved Katniss as a friend as well as a lover, where I feel like most of the other teen romance shenanigans pull the mushy stuff first.

I think that my first lit-crush ever was either Johnny from The Outsiders or Rhett Butler from Gone with the Wind. Yes, that was in eighth grade, and no, that’s not why I eventually moved to Atlanta. Really. But seriously, who didn’t love him, hello? By the way, I totally wrote a term paper on how and why Gone with the Wind and The Outsiders are exactly the same story but that’s a tale for a different day. Or never.

    I love your answers and have to admit that I had a little crush on Gale as well. I thought that he was the right man for Katniss….
