Feature and Follow #21

Welcome to the Feature & Follow

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers — but you have to know — the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

If you are new to the #FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

Now to make this #FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. If you are interested in becoming a Feature click on the drop down link above FEATURES > Feature & Follow Friday and get on the waiting list! How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to WordPress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don’t have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs.

And now the Random Question of this week:

Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then "broke up" with later on in either a series or stand alone? Tell us about it

I have a couple that come to mind, but the one that stands out is, Ward de’Ath from Ward Against Death. I'm sorry MelanieCard, but he fell flat, I started to like him, but he seemed to have lost steam as he dragged Celia around trying to solve the mystery of who wanted her dead. Not to mention the redundancy of him having to keep to his oath when he damn well knew that he was being hunted with Celia. He seemed to try to hard at doing his thing and time and time again watched as things got out of hand. He had so much potential but not enough to keep me liking him.

My apologies,


  1. Don't feel bad. It's okay not to like a character.

  2. Hopping through. Who writes Ward Against Death? I don't know it.

  3. I haven't read this series as yet.

    My FF,

    Have a great weekend, Sharon

  4. I often dislike characters, but I seldomly first like them and then fall out of love. Haven't heard of the books yet, I think.

  5. I haven't read the series, but it sounds like one of those dislike-then-hate scenarios that I'm all too used to. Sometimes characters just aren't written they way they SHOULD be, you know?

    New follower!

  6. I haven't heard of this series.
