C is for Character

Posted April 3, 2014 in Uncategorized / Leave a comment!



(char·ac·ter): the aggregate of features and traits that form the individual nature of some person or thing.

This probably isn’t a shocking one. It’s pretty obvious that the characters in a book need to be amazing in order for the book to be amazing. It just makes sense. The characters are the biggest point in a book. They’re who we related to and follow throughout the whole book.

I personally related better to female characters, since I am a girl, and I really like a strong female lead. I hat seeing weak female characters that depend on the men in their lives to fix all their problems. I will not have that. Immediately that book will not get a good rating from me. Maybe some people are into that but to me that’s a weak character. I also love me some men. I like the men that want to protect their girl but I hate it when they go overboard. Not very many men are that protective in real life and I feel books should be a little realistic right? I mean I do fall in love with those completely perfect male characters that aren’t realistic at all but I find I enjoy books more when the characters aren’t perfect and have normal problems just like me.

Here’s some books that have some of my favourite characters:

  • Bitten
  • Cinder
  • A Game of Thrones
  • Poison Study
  • The Notebook


I’m trying to pick different kinds of books so everyone might have something here they would like. I’d definitely recommend all of these though because they’re all amazing. What do you guys think? Let me know below! Also post your links to your A to Z Challenge.

  1. A Song of Ice and Fire has great character. G.R.R Martin writes women so well! He was once asked in an interview how he does it and he answered: “Well, I see them as people.” That man is awesome!

  2. I love all different types. I don’t mind a heroine that needs help but absolutely HATE the ones who refuse to let a man help them even when they need it because ‘they can do it on their own’. Drives me absolutely nuts.

    My favorite hero and heroine are Eve and Roarke from JD Robb’s In Death series. Both are incredible.

    Happy A to Z-ing!
