Favorite Fictional Character--Hermione Granger


FFC is from the mind of Ryan at Wordsmithonia.

When I started reading the Harry Potter books by J. K. Rowling, I found a kindred spirit in Hermione Granger.  Like me, she is a girl who loves school and learning...loves pouring through books in the library and reading ahead of the class in all her textbooks.  But Hermione is more than just a girl who is a little geeky and bookish.  She is a strong female character that any girl...or woman...can look up to.  She knows her own mind, is fiercely loyal and is a true friend.  And she believes in righting the wrongs of social injustice (who can forget her taking on the cause of the Hogwart's House Elves!).  There are many characters in the Harry Potter books that are favorites, but Hermione stands out as my most favorite because I see myself in her.  It might (not) surprise you to know that I took one of those "which Harry Potter character are you?" quizzes and guess who I was?  Hermione Granger! I have not yet read the last book in the series, but I'm hoping that Hermione will get her ultimate wish...to be with Ron as more than just friends (something that we finally saw the spark of in Half-Blood Prince).  If you haven't already, take another look at Hermione.  She is a character well worth remembering.



Do you have a favorite fictional character?

  2. Great post! One of my favorite HP characters is Luna Lovegood. I don't think I'd admit to being a kindred spirit with her though. LOL. I took that same quiz on FB (can't seem to resist HP quizzes) and I was Hagrid. This sort of makes sense to me because I love animals.

  3. Who could not love Hermonie? Great pick this week. Wow, how she and all the kids of the movies have grown up. I can't wait for the next movie to come out.

  5. Thanks everyone! I sure will miss her when I finally finish reading the last book. I'll have to go back and reread them all in the future. I may start reading them to my sons actually.

  6. Hermione is wonderful! I have even named one of my beloved Westie's after her.
    Kilrakes Clever Witch (Hermione)

    Great post!
    Scarlet O'hara would be a favorite along with
    Miss Jean Louise Finch better known as Scout in To Kill a Mocking Bird.

  7. I have so many favourite characters it would be hard to pick just one, theres the musketeers, sherlock holmes (despite his ermm vices),there's Matt, Perrin, from WoT. Tonks, Lupin, Snape, Lucius, Bellatrix (you love to hate her!) the Weasly twins from Harry Potter. And that's just some from books!

    Hermione wasn't a character I liked that much in the series. She was smart and I respected her for that, but at times she didn't really seem to see the big picture in the end, that sometimes rules will be broke, sacrifices for the greater good. She became more likable in the end though.

  8. This is going to date me a little bit, but in my (much) younger days I loved Nancy Drew and so wanted to be her.
