Book BFF: Katla LeBlanc

Book BFF was created by Larks Andrea, Paula, and Jen to showcase some of our favorite ladies & was originally inspired by Book Boyfriend. We'd love it if you'd join us featuring your favorite Book BFFs and leaving links so we can check out your posts. We will be alternating between Book Boyfriends and Book BFFs on Thursdays.

* "It's the grunge look." I posed for him, tapping the toe of my Doc Martens out to the side and displaying the full length of slash marks down the front of my baggy jeans. My chunky knit sweater with old leather buttons and its thumb holes at the base of the too-long sleeves hung mid thigh. ~ Katla, Frost - pg. 33

* "Katla, you are a very special girl. I never knew of one so young to be given these powers." ~ Hulda, Stork - pg. 18

* "Everything I've done ... what I'm about to do ... was to protect you, Leira, and others. Please remember that." ~ Katla to Jack, Flock - pg. 337

* Jack led me upstairs to my room, where we lay on my bed simply holding each other. Once I had calmed down and my nose was all snotted out and my face looked like a punching bag, he, rather diplomatically, segued into lighter subjects: my affinity for purple decor, my fondness for feather boas, and my overuse - in his opinion - of throw pillows. ~ Flock, pg. 208

* I puddled into Jack's arms and let my worries spool away from me ... We were stronger together. As if tapping my thoughts, Jack leaned down and kissed me. No matter what the future held, what our combined destinies triggered, we had each other. ~ Frost, pg. 375

Why She's My Book BFFs:

I have adored Katla from moment one. This series is one of my favorites; Katla is mainly responsible for that. She is spunky, loyal, and fun. Her sense of style amuses me. I was always interested to see what outfit she'd come up with next. She's also a girl after my own heart where Starbucks is concerned. I couldn't imagine living in a place that didn't have one. As it is, I'm still lamenting that I no longer live in the Seattle area where there was a Starbucks on virtually every corner. Our drinks do differ - I'm a vanilla chai and pumpkin spice latte girl. It would be fun to sit with Katla and drink our respective favorites as we discussed life. Furthermore, her relationship with Jack is truly swoon worthy and so sweet. She is the type of girl I wish that I had been in high school. I love that she is comfortable in her own skin and knows exactly who she is.
