Be a Fiction Character for a Day!

Again, I am posting yesterday's blog challenge today.  My day was rather full, and by they time I realized I needed to blog, I didn't have the brain power.

*Please take note, this is not a favourite challenge!*

The Challenge: A fiction character I would like to be

The Person:  Mandie from the Mandie Series by Lois Gladys Leppard

The Reason:  I first read the Mandie books when I was eight or nine.  Our church library in Michigan had them.  When we moved back to Virginia, I no longer had access.  Then, I bought the entire series!  I ate the books up.

Mandie was always having adventures and solving mysteries.  She went to boarding school, had a best friend, visited her Grandmother in a ginormous house, had relatives that were Cherokee Indian, went to Europe (with her best friend), found more mysteries there, met awesome people, celebrated holidays in lots of fun places with her family and closest friends, oh, and met the President and stayed at the White House.

I think it would be fun to jump into her stories for a little while.

A few other people I thought about being (and would love to, of course) are: Elizabeth Bennet, Jo March, Amy March, Pippi Longstocking, Anne Shirley, and a couple of characters from the Brock and Bodie Thoene collections.

Who would you like to be?


  1. oh my gosh, you read mandie, too? at first, when i started reading your post i thought to myself, "this sounds so familiar..." but once i scrolled down to the see the image i was taken like 12 years backwards! between these books, nancy drew, and american girl, i was a very happy little girl. and i do remember her going to boarding school (which i oddly always wanted to do).

    great post! :)


    1. Haha, yes, I read them, loved them, and wanted to go to boarding school, too!
      Actually, I read all the books you listed and more.
      I always seemed to have my nose in a book growing up : )

      Thanks for sharing your love of them, too!
