Lizzie What a great idea for a list! I'm hoping that it doesn't become an outlet for voters to bash books they hate.


message 2: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Thank you Snickers! And your right, I actually created it more for books and characters you love, that just need a little...encouragement sometimes.


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

Joyce Barnhardt in The Stephenie Plum books but not sure how to post it as I like Steph so much.


message 4: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Bella does need to be slapped. Not in a bad way, but... yeah just until she sort of gets a life. I also think half my favorite characters could use a slap some times, they just do things in a way that drives you nut, partially when it comes to boy/girl stuff.


message 5: by Maja (last edited Nov 29, 2010 03:52PM) (new)

Maja Was I the only one thoroughly irritated by Lillian more than a few times throughout Kleypas' Wallflower series (It Happened One Autumn)?


message 6: by Anne-Marie (new)

Anne-Marie Mathiesen A big smack for Bella, Edward & Jacob.

No! I felt exactly the same way. I was stunned that I was actually able to stomach reading her book when I finally made it that far into the series.

Ooh agreed!


message 9: by Mick (new)

Mick lol, are we smacking the antagonist or the protagonist? hmm...

Yeah, she was irritating but normally Kleypas is good at creating flawed characters who I can still like. I love Westcliff, but he's still pompous and overbearing as can be. I hated the h from Stranger in My Arms though. Adding that book now.


~☆~Autumn♥♥ I would never smack a character that I loved! People are so strange. Some of these characters have already been abused too much as it is.
