March 19th: What personality traits do you love/hate in a character? (Courtesy of Roberta@ Offbeat YA)

Why am I always so bad at these?! I always read other answers and go all wow! Well said, well said

Also bloody hell. March 19th!?!?! When did that happen?

I do love a kick-ass woman, but that is a fine line. Let's take one kick-ass woman, who at the same time is beyond stupid and rush into things. Omg, please, kick-ass plus a brain.

Whiny characters, no please.

Characters who think they are awkward and ugly and still have 2 hot guys lusting after them

I like normal characters! No extremes. Nerdy, shy, funny, they can e whatever they want, but it also has to fit them. I hate when a character is great on paper, but still does things that goes against their own personality. Why make such a character? You can't say they are all that, and then have them act like a whiny, stupid brat.

To be honest, most personality traits that makes me go grrr I find in YA. They are always the ones that makes no sense. Authors want cool characters and forget to actually follow what they preach.

Oh oh alphaholes. Please, I get that you are dark, cool and tormented, but please, do not be an ahole too.

Just give me a wellwritten character that is what he or she is.

  3. I'm going to try to do this one tomorrow (a day late lol) and you've touched on one of my peeves - women running into things while complaining about being dragged into everything.

  4. You said it well. I was nodding right along with you especially the described one way-act another character and most definitely too extreme of any character trait.

  9. I agree. Give me a character who is real. Not too perfect, not too flawed. Someone I think I could meet anywhere.
