Book Blogger Hop December 29th - January 4th: U-235 Is the Uranium Isotope That Was Used to Make Little Boy

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: What character or characters would you not mind sharing a New Year’s kiss with?

In books, I'm not sure. Heinlein had a lot of possible prospects in his books, but given that so many of them were basically thinly veiled versions of his wife, that might be a little weird. I suppose that Chani or Irulan from Dune would be good choices, or possibly Eowyn or Arwen from the Lord of the Rings. Now that I think about it, Eilonwy from the Chronicles of Prydain would be a good choice as well.

In other media, I'd be happy to share a New Year's kiss with Amy Pond, or possibly Nyssa. I'd definitely kiss Princess Leia. Or Rey. Or Doctor Crusher. Louise Banks would also be high on my list, although given that the linearity of time is meaningless to her, celebrating a moment in time with her might be awkward.

    1. @Chrissy: Thanks. These sorts of questions are always difficult for me, since I don't normally think about book characters this way. I never would have come up with the notion of a "book boyfriend" or "book girlfriend" on my own. I don't think I would have come up with the idea of kissing a book character on New Year's without the writing prompt. I just don't relate to books that way when I read them.
