Question
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.

Answer
Well, hmm. I'm not particularly a picky person when it comes to characters. There's usually no gray scale for me. It's either I like the character and continuously like them, or I hate them and continuously hate them. But after consulting my Goodreads bookshelf, I just realized I've had a love-hate-love relationship with a character. I fell in love with Sophie Mercer from the Hex Hall series in the first book, and then in the second book, Sophie started making wretchedly horrible decisions, and then I really couldn't stand her and unfortunately we had to break up.

However, in the third book, Sophie sort of redeemed herself in my eyes and I enjoyed her again. She was snarky all over again and when before I wasn't totally in love with Sophie, Spell Bound basically made me "want to pop the Q," since we're talking in terms of a relationship here. I just loved Hex Hall, really didn't like Demonglass that much, but then Spell Bound reined me in again. :) You can even see my review in the recap of this week!

  6. Interesting! I haven't read Hex Hall yet, but it's on my list, and I keep hearing people say what a great character Sophie is. I guess she's not all rainbows and sunshine, huh?

    I haven't read the HexHall series yet, but I keep meaning to. The love-hate-love thing is kind of cracking me up right now, though. I think I've had this kind of relationship with some tv-show-characters. :'D

    *highfive* Your design rocks *hehe*
    I haven't read the Hex series...not sure it's for me, but I highly recommend the Elemental Assassin books. They're not YA, but still...awesomesauce.

  16. I've never read this series either. But I think it's a sign of good writing when we get so emotionally connected to a character that what they do can make us hate them.

  17. I also had to consult my GoodReads shelf to find my answer. This Hex Hall series looks very interesting. I've seen your reviews and may really need to check it out. Here's my FF

  18. I also had kind of a love/hate relationship with who I featured on my My FF! I loved them but they did something to piss me off but then I forgave them. I hated Sophie because she treated Cal like crap and I LOVED Cal! That's why I never and will never read the third book in the series. I'm following GFC and linky.

  23. I haven't read the last one, I just bought it today, but I always loved Sophie. I just never liked Archer as the guy she loved. I'm a Cal fan, although I doubt it will happen.
