Friday Follow

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer!  This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. 
This week’s question –

Characters, sometimes our favorites, die during books. If you’d get to choose, who would you bring back? viaHowling for Books 

Hmm...this is a hard one because oftentimes the storyline changes once a character is offed.  It sets the mood for future events and can be a catalyst for what is to come.  That being said, I really wish Dumbledore didn't die.  He was such a great role model for Harry and his friends.  However, if he hadn't passed, the story would have also had a much different outcome and may not have been nearly as epic.

Just to add my 2 cents worth, I would pick Tom from the Rot and Ruin series.  He was such a wonderful character and his death was devastating (sorry if that's a spoiler), but by dying he forced the other characters to grow in so many ways.  I shed several tears when he died.

  1. A lot of people have mentioned Harry Potter characters (me being one of them). Just goes to show how much that series has affected us as a reading population.

    Here's my Follow Friday

  2. I picked Dumbledore too. But I've seen a lot of other posts about other characters in HP. I guess I forgot how many characters died in that series! I haven't seen a Dobby post yet, but he'd be another one...Here’s my F&FF..

  3. I totally blanked on Harry Potter characters but Dumbledore would've been my pick too. Sad.....

  5. Dumbledore was on my list too. I was so devastated when he died! Old follower :)

    Here's my F&F!

  6. I feel a bit ashamed to admit that I haven’t read the last three Harry Potter books, certainly now with all the HP characters which have been chosen. Yet I don't think I'll ever be able to read The Half-Blood Prince since so many people are still devastated about Dumbledore.
