I’ve never once posted a #WCW on Twitter or Facebook or anywhere. Until today. For those of you not in with the new trendy lingo, #WCW just stands for “Woman Crush Wednesday.” No idea who comes with this stuff. And typically guys only post a picture of one girl/woman, but I’m going to post four. Anyway, you can think of these as my literary/bookish crushes.
There’s no need for me to explain why she’s first on my list. I’m basically obsessed with her. Or maybe it’s just the series as a whole? Or…I don’t know. Katniss is pretty much a superhero in my eyes. Yep.
She may not be as obvious as Katniss since I don’t talk about her every second of the day. BUT she’s still one of my favorite characters of any books or movies or life. I mean, I know there’s this whole thing about guys wanting to be smarter than their girlfriends or girl friends or whatever, but no. I have no issue with Hermione being a million times smarter than me. Is there anyone else who could have dealt with Ron and Harry as well as she did? I don’t think so. And let’s not forget that she seriously helped Harry with all that Chamber of Secrets business. And a million other things.
Oooooh. One y’all probably don’t know at all. She’s from the Gears of War books written by Karen Traviss and adapted from the bestselling games. If you have no idea what I’m talking about when I say Gears of War, just think of another human vs. monster kind of deal. That’s oversimplifying it, but eh. Anya is a soldier. But she is also able to get close to Marcus Fenix during their years of war. Guys, he’s as hardcore as it gets. But Anya is that one little soft spot he has. And she’s great for him.
I almost didn’t include her. But I love reading about the Master Chief and she’s with him every step of the way. She’s his AI, she’s basically a computer linked to Master Chief and what he’s doing at all times. She does a whole lot more than just help reach the objective, and it’s hard to imagine Master Chief without Cortana. Though I think she meets her demise in the fourth installment of the game series. I think.
So that’s it! My four bookish crushes for #WCW. Who are yours?
