Booking Through Thursday – Character

Hosted by Booking Through Thursday

(from Thursday 16th December – I didn’t post it last week)

If you could be a character from any book, who would you be? And why?


I’d like to be Ronia in Ronia, The Robber’s Daughter by Astrid Lindgren. She has such a definite view of the world – simple and childlike (well, she is still a child), but also quite mature. She’s able to stand on her own two feet and survive in difficult and dangerous situations. Ronia is quick-witted, compassionate, passionate and caring, strong-willed and capable. She also has the most amazing time living in the forest throughout the summer and in a robbers’ fort in the winter – how cool is that?

She’s surrounded by people she loves and who love her in return, she knows right from wrong and acts on it, and she lives wild and free with magical creatures all around. I think it must be some kind of wonderful to be like that…
