Feature and Follow Friday ( Lucky #1)

April 27, 2012

Hi Guys or Gals,
This is my first Feature and Follow Friday so I am sorry if it's kinda a crazy post cuz I am trying to get used to it and figure out how all of this works. So bare with me :)
Well Follow Friday is Hosted By Alison Can Read and Parajunkee.

This weeks question is.....

Q: Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you feel in love with and then "Broke Up" with later on in either the series or a stand-alone book?

Well, I see a lot of people have posted about Gale from The Hunger Games and I completley agree with that , But I want to do a very different character from everyone else. With that being said the first thing that comes to my mind is Shay from the Nightshade series, but the only problem with that is I didn't actually love him I kind of hated him. Since that is not what the question asked I would have to say that I have never really encountered a character where I "Broke up with," with him or her. The thing is, I normally stick around to read the next book in the series and boring  or not I see the different sides of the characters and it can be annoying sometimes, but I know eventually there will be a time where the character will go back to the character I love... atleast I hope.
If I ever encounter I book I "break up with," and can not read because the character aggravates  me that much I will have to update this post.

Thanks, For baring with me if you read that and Please follow me or leave a comment I would love to hear what ya'll have to say.



  1. Ahhhh I love Gale! So sad people broke up with I'm :( Great answer :)

    Here's my FF!

  2. I haven't fully broken up with Gale, more he stopped calling me and I don't know where are relationship stands anymore. And I never liked Shay; always rooting for Ren :)

  5. Good pick:) New GFC follower here

  6. I'm afraid to start the nightshade series now. LOL

    I'm a new gfc follower. :)

  7. I really liked Gale, but something was definitely a little off about him during Mockingjay, to me, at least. And I will forever support Ren. I thought I was Team Shay to begin with, but then I realized my loyalties lied with the badboy. :)

    Thanks so much for following me and giving me the compliments! I'm following back!

    By the way, WELCOME to Follow Friday! It's really a lot of fun and you'll have a blast here! There are some truly awesome and nice book bloggers who participate in this meme and I can't wait for you to meet them all! :) Have a great weekend and you wrote an awesome answer! :)

  8. Your the third FF post that said Gale! lol I haven't read the second or third yet, so I have no idea yet, but I can expect I won't like him as much. *laughs*

    I'm a new follower!
    Here's mine:

  9. Oh this seems cool, how can i participate in follow me friday? Sorry if that's a dumb question lol, i'm a fairly new blogger

  10. That's what I do, too! How sad would it be to give up on a series and the character I struggled with becomes the most lovable person again?
    New Follower!

  11. Lindsay-- its ok I am some-what new to if you click on the the link to Allisons blog I put (its in green at the top) and follow her instructions.This is my firest FF (Feature Friday)so it would be easier if you follow her instructions then me explaining it. Hope this helps.Gabby :)

  12. I also chose Gale, I guess he is very popular with this question! His presence just got lost in my opinion.. I have never read the Nightshade series! None the less the character you hate, is it still recommendable?

    Here is my FF:)

    Also a new follower of yours :) If you have a button let me know! I'd be happy to post it on my blog ;) If you can you can add my button which you can find on my blog:


    See you around! :)

  13. Hi Gabby,

    Interesting answer! I'm not a Shay fan myself. Ren all the way for me! I have never quite worked out what Calla saw in Shay.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm a new follower of yours now, can't wait to see more of your posts!:D


  15. I don't hate Gale, like a lot of people do. I don't think what happened was completely his fault. I was never a huge fan of him though.

  19. I really need to finish the Hunger Games series to know what everyone is talking about, because I have no idea lol.

  20. Gale is everywhere ! I haven't read the last 2 books yet, but I'm glad I'm Team Peeta :P

    Thanks for following :)
    Following you back!

  21. I haven't read Nightshade yet so I'll keep it in mind when I read it. Following Back!

  22. Just popping through and returning the follow :)

  23. I haven't read all of The Hunger Games books so I will have to read on and see if I feel that way torwards Gale. I have followed via GFC :)

  24. I haven't read Wolfsbane or Bloodrose yet so I'm still a Shay fan. I'll see if I change my mind.

  25. Gale from The Hunger Games... I think that because I didn't know what to think about him, he didn't let me down LOL Oh, but I also didn't like Shay much... although in the second book I did like him better! Still have to read Bloodrose, though.

    New follower, too! Sorry for the late reply :)
