CHARACTER OF THE WEEK- Fav. Female in a Series

Posted by on Jun 28, 2012 | 2 comments

WELCOME!!! Its the FIRST OFFICIAL Character of the Week Thursday!  This week is favorite female in a series.  Please link back to my blog when posting this meme, and use the above image 😀 Just save it and insert it in your blog, its the correct size.
FAVORITE FEMALE IN A SERIES- Mara Dyer from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Ohhh Mara.  How I love you!  I think this is one awesome chick.  Mara doesn’t understand what it is that is going on with herself, nor her hallucinations.  She is going through a lot with herself, and also coping with the death of her friends.  However, through all of it, she meets… NOAH SHAW.  (ahhh, dreammmyy!)  And the two become a great duo/couple/pair.  I think that within Noah, Mara finds what it is she needs to complete herself, and help understand herself more.  Basically, I think Mara Dyer is one awesome character!

Follow Friday: 6/21/2012

Feature & Follow Friday is a Weekly Meme created by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read.  Wanna join in the fun?  Click the links above!  Don’t forget, I love your comments!  HAPPY WEEKEND!

Q: If you could “unread” a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad? 



I’m sorry.  I am.  But I know my answer is going to be somewhat controversial.  I would unread what i got through of Crossed by Ally Condie.  This is the second in the Matched trilogy.  I enjoyed Matched, and got right intro Crossed.  But I just couldn’t do it.  The story took over 100 pages to pick up, and I really WANTED to like this book.  But I just could not get into it.  I couldn’t.

Anyway,  leave me your Feature and Follow Friday links!  Can’t wait to see ’em!
Also, this is probably a good time to have you guys check out my NEW Thursday Meme feature!  Who’s down to try it out? We start Thursday, read the post on that here.

This is our Meme Image we’ll be using 😉
