Armchair BEA - Character Chatter

Hey Armchair BEA, I'm back. We had some news Wednesday night after my post that kind of turned things upside down (in a good way). Plus I've been sick. But better late than never with this post!

Characters really make or break a book for me. And it's a really fine line that authors need to walk to make their characters relateable and likable. On one hand, they need to have attributes that the reader will connect with and appreciate. On the other hand, they can't be too perfect or they are annoying and unlikable. Plus they need to have that extra je ne sais quoi to really reach the level of favourite. It requires a special touch!


  1. Sorry you've been sick! Hope you are feeling better.

  2. Absolutely! If I can't feel for the character or understand where he or she is coming from, the entire book is effectively ruined for me. I hope you're feeling better!
