Feature & Follow #5: Favorite Inspiring Characters

Good morning dearest people,

It's Friday and it's time to have a new feature and follow blog post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read & Parajunkee's View.

What is Feature and Follow Friday?
In simple words- to gain more followers either via GFC or Bloglovin'. So the very idea of having this feature and follow meme is to collect more new bloggers on the block and to make new blogger friends as well as followers. It is a great idea which was started out by Alison and  Rachel. Three Cheers for those two masterminds!

So How does it Works?
  • Follow the Featured Bloggers on their blogs
  • Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
  • Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say "hi" in your comments and that they are now following you.
  • If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn't have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
  • Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"
  • If someone comments and says they are following you, please return the courtesy by following them back. Spread the Love...and the followers
 This Week's Question:

Have you ever been inspired by a book character to do something? Who was the character and what was it? - Suggested by Eternity Through Pages

I believe the characters from YA books inspire us more than a character from a realistic fiction. Though they are crafted inside a tale of fantasy under surreal circumstances, still they are built in such a way that their captivating and always challenging demeanor never fail to inspire us. Yes the characters from realistic fiction teaches us how to handle our everyday problems, or how to love, or how to move to an entirely different country, yet the YA characters are more alluring and striking to make a lasting impression on our mind.
I've just three favorite characters:

  • Tris from Divergent series

“Fear doesn't shut you down; it wakes you up” 

This character is all about fearless, brave, strong and protective. Yes, she challenged me to face my own fears from whether it is taking a public stand to doing something for the general mass or caring for the near ones by throwing oneself into danger. She taught me how to speak my mind fearlessly and stand strong during the face of a crisis, and also how to have faith in one self. Tris have inspired me to be brave and protective of my loved ones.

  • Katniss from The Hunger Games series

 "Hope is the only thing stronger than fear."

This character is all about sacrifice, determination and selflessness. Katniss challenged me to make sacrifices in my life, whether it is letting go of something precious or to have belief that I'll reach the destination or to believe on my instincts. She taught me how to make a difference in the world or in your family or among your close friends by sacrificing and then having strong determination with whatever I want to do in my life. Katniss will always be one of my most favorite female characters. She is an epitome of how a socially awkward human being can leave a mark on this world and can actually achieve some great friends irrespective of their demeanor.

  • Harry from Harry Potter series

 “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”

Harry doesn't teaches us how to fight with an enemy, instead he inspires us how to respect and love your friends like your own blood. Harry Potter series is all about friendships and without the support of your friends, it is sometimes difficult to achieve that remarkable greatness. Harry even inspires us how not to dwell on something or someone, whom or which we have lost in the past, in Harry's case, it was his parents, and how he lived a life of greatness with a belief that he is always wrapped up in his dead parents love, rather than sulking about their loss. Yes, Harry taught me to keep my friends close and show them love and respect and at times, if required, to protect that friendship.

Comment below to share with me who are your favorite bookish characters which never fail to inspire you, even when t=you read that book from the hundredth time?
