Characters You Defend: These are characters you love, but no one else seems to so you are always defending them!
1.) Rosemarie Hathaway – Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.
In the beginning I thought she was pretty annoying, but then she grew on me.
She stopped being so petty, and became a total, in Richelle’s words, “badass.”
Everyone should be able to see that throughout the series she really grew up.
So now what’s your excuse?
2.) Lola Nolan – Lola and The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins.
I feel like a lot of people didn’t like Lola because she was different…REALLY!?
So after all of these years of “growth,” you still don’t like a person, because
they are different!? Come on people! Get with it!
3.) Rachel Watson – The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins.
Nobody really liked anyone in this book, but I personal loved Rachel.
I think I might have liked her more because I felt bad for her…But
I also liked her because she knew she had a problem, and she didn’t
try to act like she was perfect like that bitch Anna. Team Rachel! 😉
4.) Bianca Piper – The Duff by Kody Keplinger.
I personally think that anyone who doesn’t like Bianca is a hater!
Real recognize Real, and I love me some Bianca.
5.) Darcy Rhone – Something Blue by Emily Giffin.
In the beginning she was a straight up bitch…In the middle, she was
a straight up bitch. But one day, after Sir Ethan snatched her bald, and
told her like it was, she slowly started to change, and became a better
person. She was at rock bottom, and found a way to redeem herself.
What’s not to love about that?
Are there any characters out there that you feel like you need to defend?
Stick up for them in the comments! 🙂

yay! I am Team Rachel, too! Though I somehow though it was ‘her’, I am still glad it wasn’t ‘her’. 🙂
🙂 She was my favorite from the beginning!
I could not get myself to like Darcy in Something Borrowed and was really anxious about Something Blue, but I almost like that book better than the first one. Ethan brought out the best in her!
Yes! I liked the second book more. I hate Darcy in Something Borrowed. She was such a hypocrite!!
how’s the Girl On the Train I am planning on Reading it?!
Oh I LOVED it!! I want to start reading more books like that now! 😀
Yesss at Rose! She is my babe. I really have to finish the VA series.
Yes FINISH IT!! I’m not a big fan of the whole Vampire thing, *Cough* TWILIGHT *Cough* but I LOVED these books! 😉
I didn’t read Lola and The Boy next door, but I read all of those other books and I totally agree. I LOVE Rose so much, she is my favorite character ever, I think the people who don’t like her probably just didn’t finish reading the series or they just have no idea what they are talking about and should not be trusted. I loved Bianca too, she was so funny and like you said…REAL. She reminds me of Rose a little if she were human…at a reguar high school…and the Duff…
Rachel wasn’t my favorite character but I agree with what you said about her. I liked her and I don’t think the hate she gets is really fair. Megan was my girl tho. Now Darcy is my GIRL. It was amazing to see how much she changed throughout the story. I died when you said Ethan snatched her bald. I really love your list. I notice that all of the characters you chose are all very impefect people who are just trying to find their way.
Bianca Piper is my girl! Alas Haters gonna hate! 😉
Yes team Rachel, I used her in mine aswell ☺️
Lola and the Boy Next Door is my favorite book in the series! I LOVE CRICKET SO MUCH! And I’m also surprised with all the hate Lola gets, she’s so unique and different! I love her costumes so much, and her character development throughout the book was really admirable.
Truth! I also, LOVE ❤ CRICKET ❤ !!
I know I’ve read Vampire Academy, but I can’t remember a single thing about it; I’m definitely going to try to re-explore that one in the near future. I actually didn’t like Lola much – sorry!
Hahaha that’s okay! 🙂
I love Lola!!!
She is the best! 😀
