Follow Me Friday! #14

Hey guys!

It's time for Follow Friday Number 14 !!! :D

This week's question is:

Question: Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then "broke up" with later on in either the series or a stand-alone book? Tell us about him or her.

Answer: Hmmm ... I honestly don't think I've really had a character that's disappointed me in that way. I feel like the characters in the books I've read have pretty much always done what they were supposed to do (even if I didn't always agree with it, or I didn't see it coming), you know? 

Haha, I'm a pretty forgiving person, so even with the characters I "fell in love with," I'm willing to forgive, even if I don't forget. ;)

But on a completely opposite note, I found that Jacob from the Twilight series started off as being a you know, cute kind of character in the first book. But then once he changed in the second book ... well ... that's when I was hit with Cupid's arrow (to go along with the love theme, Haha).

Can't wait to read all of your answers!!!!

Until next time folks (aka WWW)!!!!!!

  1. I haven't read New Moon yet, but I've read Twilight. I didn't really enjoy it as much as you obviously have, but everybody has different opinions, right? I totally agree with you because many books these days have pretty decent characters in them that you can't really hate them! :)

  3. Omg the art on your blog is beautiful! I really didn't like Jacob after the second book, I thought he was kind of a jerk lol. Team Edward all the way! Following you now :)

  4. It's hard to find a character that changed enough to make me dislike them, though I have been disappointed by a few. Here is my FF: Mom Reads My Books

  8. Hopping through. I've only read, like, 1/4 of New Moon, but I agree, Jacob was a cute character in Twilight.

    By the way, your blog is really pretty! :)

    Have a great weekend!

  10. I agree about Jacob, in the first book he was that cute little sidekick you feel a little "aww" towards, but then he better ;) haha. HOWEVER, i do always wonder if it's because after the first book, I just didn't like Edward so much and felt he got worse as the series went. Sometimes I think as Edward went down, Jacob went up.

    Happy Friday!

  11. I'm actually the exact opposite - Very vengeful and unforgiving, but I can't remember any character that I *loved* and then fell out of love with. *shrugs*

  12. Yeah, I'm not too forgiving either. I would want to give a second chance if it was something a little less bad, but if it was an unforgivable act I would be vengeful as well!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    The Elemental Assassin series really is great. Give it a try! I'm not much of a Jacob fan, but you are right...he definitely changed :-)

  16. Glad for you that you didn't experience character disappointments. Some of us were pretty heartbroken :D

  17. Very interesting answer! I guess the forgiving but not forgetting part works for all of us, we never really look at that character the same as we did the first time...
