Over the last two years, I’ve read a lot of books, but not all of them have been gold medal winners. Some have been *so* frustrating, and others the worst kind of predictable. Love triangles, overflowing with cheese… I could go on.
I do acknowledge, though, not all books are purely unenjoyable. Sometimes, there will be characters that stand out even if I don’t like the story. Here are some characters of note.
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
Legend by Marie Lu
So Silver Bright by Lisa Mantchev
Crossed by Ally Condie
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
The Monstrous Child by Francesca Simon
La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
Otherworld by Jason Segal and Kirsten Miller
Thank goodness for these characters, who gave me some hope through the books I didn’t enjoy. They’re the ones that helped me get to the end.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is:
Characters I liked That Were In Non-Favorite/Disliked Books
I can almost always latch on to a character, even a minor one, if I don’t like a book. Almost.
Have you ever hated a book, but liked a character?
Have you ever DNF’d a book because a character was so bad?
Has a character ever saved you from DNF’ing a book?
