My favourite characters

I was thinking this morning about books.
Not so much about books, more about the main characters.
Some of them I have loved, some of them I have loathed (but loved because I loathed them so much), and others I have just never believed in enough to care either way.
So I'm going to list five of my favourite characters.
If I can choose five!
Click on the pictures for more info.
Here goes:

1)Heathcliff

I don't know why I love him so much.
He is a horrible, horrible man who destroys three young lives to get his revenge on his foes.
But I always find myself defending his actions as understandable, which they obviously aren't.
Hmmmm.... Heathcliff...

2) Professor Snape



I have always loved the character of Snape in Harry Potter. Then book seven was written and I fell in love with the character even more. I don't want to ruin the story for those who haven't read it so I won't go into details, but I loved it, I loved how Snape's personality was fleshed out, and I loved his reasons for being the character he was.

3) Edward Cullen


I think every girl who has read Twilight has a love for Edward. Every girl who has watched the movies and not read the book has a love for Jacob. I am an Edward girl. I loved the Twilight books but I'm not at all a fan of the movies. Edward Cullen is I guess every girls perfect gent.
He is kind, compassionate, very hot (!), vulnerable, and protective. Why wouldn't you love? I wouldn't be overly struck on the idea of someone (especially a boy) being able to read my thoughts, or wanting my blood I guess, but other than that I love him!


4) Akkarin


Akkarin is a character from the Black Magician series by Trudi Canavan (click picture for link).
Looking at the characters I've already picked I guess I love the underdog and Akkarin is most definitely that. I would highly recommend this series of books to any avid reader. They are the series that led me to the belief that not all fantasy sucks!


5) Edmund



Edmund from the play King Lear is a great character.
He makes the play in my opinion!
Again, the underdog but he is like the Heathcliff of the play I guess.


Now, my leg is cramping so I have to go.
I have enjoyed this!

Turning 28.

Well. It happened. I turned 28. You know, ignoring a manic depression which lasted all of 20 minutes, I'm pretty ok with it. Rather than shy away from the fact that 30 is just around the corner, I've decided to confront it. Head on. "How?" I hear you ask. Well I have decided to celebrate the final years of being a twenty-something by embarking on a '30 things to do before I'm 30' challenge. I've been working on it for weeks. My friends here in Edinburgh have been really encouraging and I think together we have compiled a pretty mega list. Here we go (in no particular order) 1)Read the BBC top 100 books 2)Bungee jump (I should mention here I'm afraid of heights) 3)Go zorbing 4)Learn a new language 5)Visit the Sistine Chapel 6)Make a quilt (I've always wanted to. I blame Winona Ryder) 7)Visit Tiffani in Utah 8)Parachute Jump with Agata 9)Raise money for charity 10)Do the Great Scottish Run (ugh. The idea pains me.) 11)Sell something

Life of Lu 7/6/2012

I love Edinburgh. I think you should know. I love it truly. Every day I feel more settled. Every week I feel new friendships grow deeper. I really am content. So content that I sing. Poorly. I should apologise for that. I really like my new job. Sometimes I feel my head may explode with information. Then it digests and I feel capable again. It is nice to use my brain again. It does help that I have wonderful colleagues. They make it easy to love the job. I will be working with them for at least 7 more weeks. Then I finish my training. After that... who knows? Euro 2012 fever has taken over our wee flat. It bores me terribly but the boy loves it, so I pretend. I pretend quite well. I predict Russia to win. He reckons Portugal. I hope I win! I have a new cousin! And one on the way. I wish I could meet them soober than October. Hurry up October! I should mention that we're popping over in October. Pints? Anyone? Lastly, I received an amazing gift at the we

January

I found out yesterday that I was one of the winners of the photography competition that I entered as one of my 30 before 30. My photograph will now be used in a calender as the January image. How exciting! What do you think?
