Follow Friday (12)


Follow Friday is a weekly feature hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. It's a great way to discover new blogs and get new followers. I follow you, you follow me.

Q: I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What's the most unique character name you've come across?

I recently read Lies Beneath (Lies Beneath #1) by Anne Greenwood Brown and the male lead is named Calder, which I think is different (in a good way). Cassel from Holly Black's Curse Workers series. Dashiell from Dash & Lily's Book of Dares. I actually like all of these names because they are unique, but not so different that they stand out as weird.

But my all time favorite favorite 'unique' name is from Jennifer Echols' book Going Too Far. His name is John After, but he's really called Johnafter, like it's just one name. I love it! And it really goes with the story so well.

I appreciate everyone who has followed my blog. I know GFC is going away for non-Blogger blogs. Who knows how long it will be around for those of us on Blogger. You can always follow me by email. I don't know how much interest there is in the new Linky follower thingy (yes, that IS the official name for it). Leave me a comment and let me know if you prefer to follow in some way that I don't have available. Thank you!
