Current Reading Mood: Urban Fantasy
Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Follow Friday! April 27th, 2012




Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View and Alison at Alison Can Read. The point is to follow as many book blog as you can and make new friends! As part of the adventure, she gives a weekly question.


Q:
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.


A:
I have. A few actually. The one that comes to my mind first though, seems to be Anita Blake of Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series. She was great for a while. A favourite of mine and a kick ass chick with attitude. Tough, smart and an over all a killing machine. The she got the Adure and started having sex with every man she would come into contact with, and it got a bit tiresome. It was a cool concept mostly, it just seemed to turn her into something less than desirable. It was great while it lasted, but I think it's time I've moved on...

I haven't read these books, but it's always sad when a character turns out to be disappointing.

Same answer. I wish she just stayed as a necromancer... that makes her different from the rest of the paranormal girls...old follower! Happy Friday!

Priscilla TheGreat said...

Tons of people have said Anita Blake today. I guess I won't be reading that series!

Natasha said...

Yeah, her necromancer days were the best iamjen.

I agree Liza. You get emotionally connected with well written characters, that when they let you down in the book, they change how you see them.

Natasha said...

It was a good series, really. Up until book 8 it was a hit for many. So you can get 8 awesome books, but not guaranteed too many more. lol

New follower, I've seen that Anita Blake is a character whom a lot of people aren't fans of anymore, I own all the books but haven't read any of them yet but now I'm a bit wary, my FF

Anita Blake. A name I read more than once on the #FF posts. Must be frustrating...her behavior.

This is one of the most popular answers this weekend! and pretty much for that reason! I never got into them myself. Mostly because I heard about Anita and her sex life!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Patricia said...

Anita Blake seems to be a popular answer. I have not read the books though but I am thinking I probably won't.

Thanks for stopping by. old follower!

Eileen said...

I've seen a lot of this around, but I haven't read the book myself. It seems like it would be a good book, but I guess the rest would sufficiently ruin it.

Following back and have a great weekend! :)
