I am suffering from character melt down!!! I need to go to a YA fictional character support group. Am I reading about far too many YA characters with way too many issues? Henry in Dust City has abandonment issues and Kyle in You has issues with his self-esteem. Katniss had issues with her mother. Peeta had issues with his mother. Breena and Kian and Logan are in a triangular relationship and Vera is drinking vodka as she delivers pizza. Zack was manipulative and egomaniacal!!! And all of this is just within books I have read in the last five days!!!
When I actually sit down to write a review...I can't remember the names of the characters I am writing about!!! I called Henry Hank and I thought Zack was Jake and now I am totally freaking out about remembering character names. Please tell me this is even slightly normal. I absolutely hate going back into my book to find the names of characters I have just read about. But...from now on...that is what I am going to have to do. OMG...I need to start writing down the names or at least write the review before I start a new book!!!
