Follow Friday - 27/04/2012

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison can read. Each week participants are given a prompt. This week's is:  

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.

Dimitri Belikov.

He was the redeeming feature of the first 3 Vampire Academy books. Rose got on my t*ts (sorry - expression we use a lot here!), Lissa didn't appeal to me. Christian was cool but Dimitri was the character that shone. Even in the fourth book he made for an interesting, if sadistic, antagonist. But those last two books? Especially Last Sacrifice... He kept going on and on about honour but did he have any himself when it came down to it? Did he 'eck. Rose's actions didn't help, but I'd thought Dimitri was a stronger, better person than that.

I felt that the VA series was mediocre at best in general so it broke my heart to not like the one character I really did like... but I just couldn't bring myself to like what he became. Sad days.

How about you? Leave me a comment with a link to your post and I'll be sure to pop on over as time allows! 

Happy hopping and have a great weekend!


  1. That sucks that the series is such a letdown. I was given a copy of the first book but just couldn't get into it.

  2. Hopping through. I had a harder time with Dimitri in the last few books, but I still ended up loving him.

  3. Ooh, I <3 Dimitri :)

    My FF,

    Have a great weekend, Sharon

  4. Ik heb deze boeken nog steeds niet gelezen. Dus ik weet ook niet wat je hiermee bedoeld. Maar ik vind het wel jammer voor je. Ik denk trouwens, dat het altijd wel erg jammer is als een karakter uit een boek je zo erg teleurstelt. Ik heb dat zelf ook met een van mijn favorieten series.

    Fijne vrijdag!

  5. I can't believe I understand part of Mariska's reply. "Ich hab das Buch noch nicht gelesen. Das ich .. no idea beurteilt? Ich hab das .. mit meinen Lieblingsserien." God. I'm obviously fluent. XD XD XD

    Oh and I had issues with him, too. I'm still trying to read more into the books, though and keep them good. I just can't deal with the fact that they were a let down. *sigh*

  6. Dimitri did upset me around those times as well, but I never broke up with him. My heart just couldn't do it! ;)

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  7. Really? I stopped at book 2 and was thinking of finishing... but maybe not. LOL

    I'm an old gfc and new networked follower. :)

  8. I've only read the first book of this series so I couldn't say but I think I need to read it to learn more.

    here is mine

  9. Haven't read the series but I feel like I've seen other people frustrated with those books.

    My follow friday. Hope you'll stop by!

  10. A few said Adrian tonight, but you're the first I've heard with Dimitri, but I agree with you more. Now, I haven't finished the series yet, but from where I stand, I'm pretty P'd Off at Dimitri.
