FF (67) & TGIF (50)

Follow Friday is an opportunity to discover and follow other book related blogs! Want to join? Check it out at Parajunkee.

This week's question feature is from
Book that Thing!

Q: 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.

My Answer: I know I have experienced this, but I can't bring to mind any names, I think I try to block it out. I do tend to get really involved with characters, they become like friends/sisters/brothers/wishful thinking boyfriends etc, so if they do things I don't agree with I get very disappointed. Luckily it doesn't happen very often.

This Friday's Question:


 Reading Blues: We all get them from time to time. What helps you overcome those reading slumps when nothing seems to grab your attention?


My Answer: Luckily it doesn't happen to me very often, I have quite plain sailing with my reading, but if I do have an off time I will either re-read a childhood favourite like Harry Potter or Animals of Farthing Wood and it will jolt me back into the flow.

If I'm not in the mood to read at all, then I just won't read, I'll have a break for 1-2 days, no reading at all and then come back to it. By then I am usually over it and desperate for another book.

Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!! 


P.S I've done a Guest Post on the 'Reading Agency's' blog, click here to read it. It's my first ever guest post and I'm really proud of it. :D

I am the same, I get invested in my book characters.
I am right there with them for hours and hours and if its a series and they screw up big time I feel let down.
Usually they rectify themselves but you never know..

I very often find characters frustrating but its rare for me to LOVE a character then HATE same character later.

I fully understand the desperate for another book concept. I often feel that way. I can finish a book and then I am like IDK what I want to read but anything should work and then I might end up back in the same I don't want to read despair. It happens you know. Thank you for sharing.

Books and Beyond - thanks! I totally agree, 9 times out of 10 they will redeem themselves. Have a great weekend too.

Veela - it doesn't happen very often, usually my love for a character lasts. :D

Zapkode - I always have that moment when i finish a book - 'what next???'i have to be in the mood for certain books. It's strange how it works.

Thanks for stopping by.
