So Top Ten Tuesday is held over at That Artsy Reader Girl, where every week bloggers list their top 10 being asked about. This week’s post is about those characters I liked in books that I may *not* have liked.
This is a tale of time travel and murder, and a character that was let down by everything else around it.
Another as the above: Judith is a compelling anti-heroine, though I could have done without other bits of the book. Especially the brand name-dropping. Still would like to know why that happened.
I went in hoping for a story about Natasha and got a weak YA-romance, which used Natasha just to have Black Widow in the title, I think. But Natasha — needed more of her in this.
Bailey Chen didn’t need an insta-romance to be an engaging character.
Indigo is a superhero stuck in a book that goes on for too long.
Zoe, a travel guide writer for the supernatural, who was stuck in a book that should have been more exciting.
Tess is stuck in a book with an ending I didn’t like, but she I liked just fine!
This is the story of Mitza, Albert Einstein’s first wife — and I felt for Mitza, who I thought was a great character, but I think the book made Einstein a cliche, which did her story a disservice because it was all about the two of them.
Alissa, who I liked, gets stuck in a LGBTQI Fatal Attraction. Blah.
When the blurb tells you a book is about a woman called Kate, and not enough of it revolves around her — and she’s the only promising thing that keeps you going until the end.
