Tgif is a great weekly meme hosted and created by Ginger at Greads! This feature lets us wind up the week and poses a weekly question pertaining to books, blogging and what have you. This weeks question is:
Character Envy: If you could be one character from a book, who would you choose & why?
Oh that's easy...... I would be Gabriela Bentarrini from The River of Time Series by Lisa T. Bergren.
Waterfall, Cascade and Torrent to date are by far my favorite YA's of 2011 and have taken a coveted spot in my all time favorite reads. I admired Gabi's character so much, due to the fact that not only was she young but she was smart and had enough bravery in her heart to impress William Wallace.
She fought for her family, she fought for justice and she fought for true love. The girl was all around kick-butt with a sword and had inner and outer beauty to capture a wealthy handsome medieval Lord, as well as bring hope to an entire nation. Of course while honor and courage made Gabi who she was, just having Marcello would be worth diving in and being Gabi for awhile. I have a picture of who Gabi is my mind but its really hard to try and find a human face that matches what my imagination has conjured up. I think the closest that comes to my mind is actress Kate Mara with darker hair.
IMDb, has her holding a spiked club, I could see Gabi grabbing one of these and trampling down some Firenze scum-bags....If you haven't read this time-travel series yet, its truly a gem in a string of YA's.
