Feature & Follow Friday
Guess what? It's that awesome time of week again, Feature & Follow Friday. Hosted Parajunkie's View and Alison Can Read, Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop, designed to help like-minded bloggers connect. This week's all important question is:
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.
Hmm, this is a difficult one. [Contemplates ...]
Okay, please don't shoot, but I'm going to choose Anne Shirley from the Anne of Green Gables series. I loved her in the early books, but later titles (from Anne of Windy Willows onward,) she became a very boring adult - she settled a little too well into her role of wife and mother. The series didn't really pick up again until the last few books, which were about her children.
Another character who really started to annoy me halfway through the series was Ruby Landry/Dumas/Tate from the Landry series by V.C. Andrews. She seemed like such a nice girl in the beginning, then she married her half-brother and had an affair with her twin sister's husband. (Although, granted the twin sister was a real bitch.) And then there was the bit where she went crazy in the second to last volume in the series.
