This is a fun feature that Ryan at Wordsmithonia came up with and which I've been meaning to participate in for a while.
I was recently reminder of one of my favorite book characters, who I haven't visited with for quite a while, but who I always think of fondly. And she is Cimorene from Patricia Wrede's Enchanted Forest series. Cimorence is a princess who dares to be different. Rather then learning etiquette and embroidery she takes on fencing, Latin and cooking. And instead of getting captured by a dragon so that a prince could come and save her, she runs away to become a dragon's housekeeper and secretary.
I love Cimorence. She is feisty, independent and creative. She's not afraid to forge her own path and her creative methods of caring for her dragon and deterring her persistent suitors are highly entertaining. She is definitely my favorite princess and one of my all-time favorite fictional characters.
