Feature and Follow is hosted every week by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read as a way to find new blogs and gain new followers. Every week there are two new featured blogs. This week’s blogs are Little Read Riding Hood and Book that Thing.
Today’s FF question is: 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.
This is a really tough question. One of the characters that I felt betrayed by recently was John from Scarlet. In the beginning of the book he’s the big, strong right-hand man to Robin Hood who looks out for Scarlet and their band of merry men. He’s also charming and a bit of a playboy. As the book progresses though, he falls for Scarlet and has some very sweet, quiet moments with her. He seems to be a good guy, the happy side-kick that’s always up for a fight who has also fallen in love with the girl. I liked him. But when it becomes more clear that Scarlet does not feel quite the same way he does, he becomes possessive of her and kisses her whenever he wants. He gets angry and jealous and mean. I won’t give away what happened in the end that really made me want to “break up” with him for good, but I just really wish hadn’t strayed so far from who he seemed to be in the beginning of the book.
Let me know what character has disappointed you and why. And don’t forget to leave a link to your own Feature and Follow post!
