It's Thursday! Which means it's another chance to gush about a character crush and link up over at The Introverted Reader.
Let it be known that I don't end up with character crushes on just the young hotties. Because just last week while reading Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson, I fell quite instantly in love with Major Ernest Pettigrew himself!
Things I love about Major Pettigrew:
-- he is chivalrous
-- he's funny, in a dry sort of way
-- he's shy-ish
-- he's proper
-- he is very sweet
-- he's passionate
-- he cares about his past and his history and his story
-- he likes to read
-- he doesn't care what everyone else thinks.
He's really truly an awesome guy, even though he's.... "old." (Old is getting older and older to me these days. I'm sure some of you can relate!) If you haven't read this book yet, do check it out and see if you don't fall in love too!
