April 3: Characters I liked That Were In Non-Favorite/Disliked Books

I have been racking my brain for weeks on this topic and still only came up with two characters so this will be a short list.

1) Indigo in Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige.
I first heard about Dorothy Must Die at NY Comic-Con 2013. Usually it is not something I would read. Yes, I did read and loved Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, by Gregory Maguire, but that was fan fiction backstory for the witch. Dorothy Must Die is not backstory, it is Dorothy coming back and becoming evil. However, I picked up a Comic-Con exclusive prepublication excerpt because it was free and I’ll grab anything that is a free sampler at Comic-Con.

When I read the first four chapters of the excerpt I liked it enough to put it on my to-read list. The character of Indigo was really the one who drew me in. I liked her sass. However, she is not in story much. The rest of the book is not that great and I never cared to continue with the rest of the series.

2) Rumplestilskin in Beheld (Kendra Chronicles 4) by Alex Flinn.
This book is a series of four different fairytale retellings. The book as a whole is so disappointing. I go more into it here.

Rumpelstiltskin was actually my favorite retelling. It featured the most magic, on Rum’s part, spinning the straw into gold. That was the most endearing part; when Rum and Cornelia are getting to know each other and are falling in love. There’s a good twist to this character.

    • I had to search my 2 and 1 star reviews to find the characters I liked in them. I didn’t want to skip because there are so many I will be skipping already because I can’t think of anything new with out repeating my lists. :/
