Follow Friday (41)

Enter My Blogiversary Giveaway!!!

This Weeks Question:

Have you ever had a character that disappointed you? One you "fell in love" with and then "broke up" with later on in a series or stand alone book? Tell us about him or her.

Twilight (Twilight, #1)
Not any one character…just the whole series. Why, there is just to much of it. I think I am just over that whole thing. Especially stalker Edward!

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3) 
Katniss Everdeen in this last book just was not the heroine she was in the first two books. It was like she was a different character all together.

Can’t wait to read your answers!
Happy hopping,


  1. Great answer Rebecca!

  2. I've been putting off reading books 2 and 3 of the Hunger Games series because everyone I've talked to says that the plot kind of fell off a cliff after book 1. Glad to know I'm not missing out on anything.

  3. ME TOO on the Twilight thing. My FF is all about Edward. *shudder* Nothing sexy about a freaky stalker.

  4. "Especially stalker Edward" LMAO.

  5. I never felt much Twilight love to begin with. I still like Katniss, though her character development took some odd and pointless turns. Old follower! My Follow

  6. I agree with you on both occasions!!

  8. Stalker Edward is right! :) We had a huge discussion about this at one of my library meetings - if he was a regular boy, would this be normal behavior? No! They'd be calling the police! But, its fun to fall in love with a vampire. :)

    Happy Follow Friday!

  9. I completely agree! I chose Gale from The Hunger Games.

    My FF,

    Have a nice weekend, Sharon

  10. Hopping through. I agree with you on Katniss in Mockingjay. It's like she gave up at the end.

  11. "stalker Edward" hehe :) !!
    I totally agree with you on both characters :) !! I felt like Katniss had changed in Mockingjay, which is normal after all she's been through, but I didn't like that Katniss as much ..

  12. I totally agree with the whole thing about Twilight - by the end of the series I'd gone from being completely in love with the books to hating them. I'm now at the point where I don't think I could even stomach a re-read!

    As for Katniss, I can totally see where you're coming from, though I personally picked on Gale.

  13. Katniss really felt different in that book, and wow.. Don't get me started on Twilight! *g*

  14. Lol, I chose stalker Edward too! And I totally agree with Katniss. One of the reasons I liked THG and CF was because Katniss was so badass, but in Mockingjay, she changed. :(

    Have a great weekend!

  15. I'm seeing that a lot about Katniss and the third book. I think that's partially why I never read them.

    And yeah, Edward was a total stalker!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. Good answer, just hopping through.

  18. I slightly agree with you on Katniss but then again she went through A HECK OF A LOT! Suzanne Collins couldn't keep her too sane or it wouldn't have worked :/

  19. I'm not a fan of the twilight series so I couldn't say but I really need to read the other.

    here is mine

  20. Agreed with Katniss. But I do understand why she is so different. Many people have attributed it to PTSD which makes a lot of sense.

    Have a good weekend!

  21. I'm a HUGE twilight fan and yes I would say that Edward only disappointed me because I was not his Bella J/K New follower here via GFC and Linky.

    I wan't real pleased with Twilight myself. So far I am on the last book of the hunger games and have not passed my judgement on whether I like it or not. I suppose that will be determined sooner as opposed to later. Thank you for sharing.


  23. haha yeah I liked Edward but slowly changed to Jacob. He was a bit stalkerish and controlling. I was disappointed with the way Katniss handled Gale. I loved him and she just blew everyone off.

  25. I completely agree about Katniss! I was so disappointed with the way she behaved in the last book, especially in regard to poor Peeta.

  26. Guess my twilight hate has rubbed off on you!!! Good picks :)

  27. Stalking, sparkly Edward and Whiny, immature Bella :p
    And you are right, I loved Katniss in the first book, still in the second but I was disappointed in the last one.

  28. I agree on both accounts. I do still love the Twilight series, but I'm a Jacob girl and was totally upset at how things went down in the last book!

    Happy Reading!
