As an avid book lover, I could not let this day pass without comment. Children all over the UK have gone off to school dressed as their favourite book characters (quite a few Harry’s, Ron’s and Hermonie’s I suspect).
Which of course prompts the question … who would you dress up as?
Without giving it too much thought, my shortlist would be:
- Elizabeth Bennet (Pride and Prejudice) – though perhaps Mrs Bennet might be more suitable for me these days.
- Diana Bishop (A Discovery of Witches) – sexy academic witch with a hunky, brooding, but ultimately good-natured vampire partner. Ooh, who wouldn’t?
- Professor McGonagall (Harry Potter series) – mainly because I think Maggie Smith is just wonderful and I want to be like her when I’m north of 75 (and I can’t choose her character in Downton Abbey because that’s a TV show and not a book).
Who would you be for a day?
