Follow Me Friday (1)

Q: Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then "broke up" with later on in either the series or a stand-alone book? Tell us about him or her.

My Answer: I know a lot of people might say this but just because it has been so recent that I have read these books; I would have to say Gale from the Hunger Games. I was really disappointed in his character and how he transformed from a hard exterior to what seemed like a hardened heart as well.

Happy Reading to all!!


  1. I've held off reading past the first book because I heard the rest of the series kind of fell off a cliff. It seems I'm not missing much.

  4. Hopping through. Gale was disappointing. Too bad because Liam Hemsworth is way cute.

  5. Gale is a popular answer! I've been Team Peeta since the first book, but I agree, Gale was a disappointing.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Thanks for stopping by - happy to return the follow. For some reason, and maybe it's because I was just looking at my DNF shelf, the answer to this one came to me pretty easily.

  8. Could not agree more! Thanks for the follow, I followed back:)

  9. I thought he definitely ended up being way out of character for that.

    Thanks for stopping in!

  10. He was very bitter at the end. :(

  11. I was more mad at the author for making him like that. I think she did it on purpose so everyone would like Peeta

    Anyways new follower. Thanks for stopping by.

  12. For me being a Gale fan his movie likeness was unlikeable, I agree. It made me sad because I adore book Gale, still do! Maybe it's like Amber^ said, Peeta looked pretty good in comparison lol.

    I'm following you back :]

  13. seems like a lot of people are choosing him!

  14. I 100% agree with you about Gale, Chelsey. Though, I never really liked him too much. In the beginning he was alright though, but like you said, by the end he truly got a hardened heart. Some of the things he did were just unforgivable.. But anyway, thanks for sharing! :)

  15. Great description of Gale. I totally agree. I almost answered with him too but I wasn't ever a real big fan of his.

  18. You're like the fifth person I've read that has said that on FF. I've only read the first, but loved it. I should finish the series soon since it's been three years since I've read book one. lol

  20. Good answer. I never loved Gale enough to break up with him. I was always a Peeta girl.

    My follow friday. Hope you'll visit

  21. I can't believe what a popular answer he is today! I loved him still though!

  22. Yes!!! I agree one hundred percent with you. I loved Gale and was a fan of his from the very first book even though I was almost certain he wouldn’t be the love interest in the series. I just hated his character in Mockingjay. I wish things could have been different for his character.

  23. This is a really popular answer. I agree, though, because in Mockingjay Gale started to get REALLY extremely crazy. :P By the way, welcome to Follow Friday! :) There are some really nice and awesome book bloggers who participate in this meme and you'll have so much fun! :)

    New follower! Have a fabulous weekend! :)

  24. Hi Chelaey!!!

    Thank you for visiting my FF! I'm late responding because I was sick this weekend sorry!:)

    I liked Gale but I loved Peeta so it didn't bother me as much, but I will say that his behavior grew much harder by MockingJay! :)

    I'm a new follower as well!:)
