The Character Connection
The Character Connection is hosted by Jen over at The Introverted Reader. It's all about posting about the characters we love or the ones that made a big impression on us.
***Warning! Spoiler Alert! If you haven't read The Host, this post could be a mild spoiler!***
This weeks character crush is Ian from The Host by Stephenie Meyer.
I will admit that I am a Twilight series fan. I will also admit that I was one of the people that was eagerly awaiting anything by Stephenie Meyer that I could get my hands on. I was desperate for Breaking Dawn's release and in the meantime, I satisfied my craving with Stephenie's other book, The Host. Yes, this was a while ago, but I still think of Ian from time to time. I don't want to say too much about this book in case you guys haven't read it yet.
It did take a few chapters for me to really get into it, but once I did, it was hard to put down. Ian is the kind of character that just sort of sneaks up on you. You think you like him, but you're not sure you should, and then he proves you were right all along. I love the unexpected love interest!
Read it if you haven't, but be prepared to wait a few chapters for the action to really pick up.
