The reason I decided to create this meme is because sometimes I am wondering bookish related things, such as likes, dislikes, pet peeves, things I love about books and I wanted to discuss it and see what other people's thoughts are on the subject. I figured I am not the only one wondering random things so maybe you guys might want to be apart of it.
So to participate every week is pretty simple. Every Wednesday I will ask a question about something I am wondering about and all you have to do is answer and use the Mr. Linky I provide. Now if lets say your not really interested in my questions or are maybe wondering some other bookish things that you want to discuss, then your post can be about what your wondering about this week. Simple?? I wanted to ask an easy question this week to get things started.
- One of the things I look for in a book is a strong heroine. A girl that can fall madly in love with her swoon worthy man, but not have her brains turn into slush in the process. Girls that come to mind are Rose from Vampire Academy (Of course i had to use her as an example), she is badass, smart, strong, and totally in love with Dimitri but doesn't loose herself in the process. Another girl that comes to mind is Katniss form the Hunger Games. She does what she needs to, thinks about boys, and is a survivor. My last pick is Laurel from Wings. She is completely not the badass chick, but yet she's smart, determined, and in love with Tam & David.
- A major thing that makes me fall in love with a book is character development. I need my characters to grow within a series and not continue to make the same mistakes. The example I will use is all the characters in Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. This is the thing I love most about this author,every character in VA is not 1 dimensional. A good example is Mia. She's introduced as this high school enemy that her mission is to make Rose & Lissa look bad because of something that happened in the past. Now the author could of kept her as the angry high school with that mission but Richelle Mead showed us that everyone has many sides and are not ruled by one emotion. I will also use Rose from VA. She goes through so much in this 6 book series, that she changes and grows up in many different way. I wouldn't ant anything else for Rose or I would have been cheated.
I would love to hear your thoughts on my question or if you guys have been wondering anything worth discussing?
