Feature and Follow #1: Write a letter to your favorite character


FEATURE AND FOLLOW FRIDAY is a blog hop designed to provide as much exposure towards other bloggers as well as yourself and to expand following. It is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, each of whom features a chosen blog for a week. It is also an interesting way to know other bloggers. Every Friday, a new question is waiting to be answered in and so it goes on. I hope I did all okay since this is my first FF. :)



The rules are simple if you want to participate:
  • Follow the Feature and Follow Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read)
  • Follow Feature Bloggers
  • Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing. You can also crab the code if you want to insert it into your post.
  • Grab the button up there and place it in a post. This post is for the people to find a place and say “Hi” in your comments and that is to let you know that they followed you.
  • Follow, Follow, Follow as many blogs as you can. The whole point is to make friends and find new blogs. Also, don’t just follow, comment and say “Hi”. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don’t comment.
  • If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love…and the followers. Thanks.  

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
Write a letter to your favorite character. Rant, rave or gush...just pretend they are real and you just want to let them knowa "few things". - Activity courtesy of Author, Kelly Walker.

Dear Melanie Stryder,
In one word, AWOSOME. Yes, you are awesome. Earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of human hosts and you managed to keep yourself? You woke up after they hunted you and tracked you down, only o find that your body was occupied by an alien and besides that… you fought!!
It is one thing for someone to have the physical strength to fight, but it is quite another to have the mental strength. Not everybody can do this. And you not only endured the invasion to your planet and body, but you managed to take this alien force with your side. Your mind was so strong, your will so powerful that Wanderer started to think like you and see things through your eyes.
I believe you are the best character ever and I don’t think anyone can be compared with you. I would really like to know the rest of your story, but I am afraid that a sequel will not be that good. But I guess there is nothing you can do. Let’s hope that Meyer thinks the same. 
Best, 
Athina

  4. I totally agree! I loved The Host and the way it ended, and Melanie is an awesome protag. I really liked the way it ended and I was pretty shocked to find out that there's going to be a sequel, but I hope it works out for the best.

  5. Surviving an alien takeover of your mind is some tough stuff. And convincing it to see your side? Awesome! New Follower.

  9. I started this book a long long long time ago but never finished it. I'm not even sure why I didn't finish it...but with the new movie coming out that can only be described as freaking epic, I'll have to take a second look at the novel. xD

    1. Thanks for following back.
      I liked your letter too, but I haven't read the book you are referring. Sounds a little weird in the good way. :)

  14. I kind of liked Melanie, too. She was strong and smart, but mostly Wanda (or Wanderer, whatever) kind of ruined the book for me with her self-deprecating thoughts.
    Anyway.
    Beautifully written letter :)

    1. Hi Eve,
      Thanks.
      I loved that book. I know what you are saying, but I guess Wanda had to act like this since it was something totally new to her and she didn't know how to react. I don't know..I just saw it that way.
      Thanks for stopping by. :)

  17. I'm in love with your letter, especially when it's about one of my favorite characters ever! I love Melanie! But I do agree that a sequel won't be such a good idea, on the other hand, I would love to read more about Ian and Wanda's relationship.

    Thanks for following! I am following back! :D Sorry for the late visit!

    1. Hi Natasha,
      I'd like to know more too but it will be a totally different read than The Host. More like an ordinary book and the Host was too good. I don't know..:)
      Thanks for following too.
      I am anxious for next Feature and Follow!
