Time for another Feature and Follow Friday, hosted by the lovely Parajunkee’s Review and Alison Can Read! Come follow me and I’ll follow you; it’s as simple as that!

This week’s 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.
I have definitely had this experience with characters, multiple ones. The one in most recent history was every single character in The Shapeshifter’s Secret by Heather Ostler. I really, really wanted to like this book. And at times I really did, especially when she was describing the shapeshifting process–it was amazing! But that book REALLY needed some work. The main character did nothing but whine and parrot what other people said, her best friend was a complete stereotype and … agh. I managed to get halfway through the book before I just gave up because I cringed anytime a character opened their mouth. I really, really wanted all of them to live up to the shapeshifting awesomness and that gorgeous, gorgeous cover and they just … didn’t.

No matter how good a story is, flat characters will ruin a book, eh?

Always and forever, sadly. >.< Thanks!
Hopping through. Too bad the book disappointed you. I haven’t heard if it but the premise sounds good.
I haven’t read this book as yet, it’s a shame it was disappointing.

I get so sad when a potentially great story is ruined by sucky characters. Especially if it’s a book I’ve been excited about.
I thought I was following you, but maybe that got screwed up when I switched servers. So I followed you again!
Here’s my FF post!
characters can definitely make or break a book
