Happy Tuesday everyone! This week has been so hectic because I went back to school and I’m trying to readjust my sleeping schedule to “normal people” hours. I might be a little late on some of my weekly posts because of homework and my job so bear with me! Back to our scheduled programming, this week’s topic is ten characters that I just didn’t like/get.  It takes a lot for me to hate a book, but characters are a WHOLE other story. <cracks knuckles> Let’s do this.
