In Her Shoes (6): Anna from Sweet Evil

In Her Shoes is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Vanya at YA Story Teller. To participate, simply put yourself in the shoes of a heroine you've recently read about, and then talk about what you would do in her place, or what you've learned from her.



Featuring this week:
Anna Whitt from Sweet Evil 
 
 
Anna Whitt is the main character in the YA paranormal romance Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins (a book that I am currently reading & loving). Anna in this book is facing a lot of challenges. She is just learning about her background/origin which is a complex one. Anna definitely knows she is different as she can sense emotions and feel people's feelings but as the story unravels she learns exactly why this is and I have to say, I think she handles herself with grace.
 
 I don't want to spoil the story for anyone, but lets just say, this book has some of the best and intense angel lore I've read in quite a while and Anna is right smack in the middle of it.
 
 Personality wise, Anna is a really sweet person. She has a innocence to her and though some people tend to be a bit skeptical about such characters as maybe being too unrealistic or naive, with Anna, you soon realize that behind her calm resolve to do the right thing, there lies a person with a darker side, inner demons. She faces a lot of temptations and she definitely has a inner struggle that many can relate to as she is not only battling her paranormal background, she is also facing challenges that many young people face on a daily basis. So, as a character I would not change a thing about Anna. I think she has a lot of dimensionality to her and I think she makes a great heroine.

  1. She sounds nice enough for me, I really hope I'm gonna like her. Because I think that a big point in my rating is definitively the character of the heroine, and I am always eager to find new, interesting personalities.

    1. I hear you. Well I think you will like her. What is different is that her personality is incredibly laced to her paranormal background, it influences it. So it makes her more interesting because you are always wondering, how much comes from her and how much comes from her supernatural origin and what direction she is gonna take. If that makes sense.

    1. Yay!! :) Red shoes are the best, haha. And I thought they would suit Anna since she has a red dress on the book cover :D

      Oh, why thank you Vanya. That is quite a compliment :) I'm finishing up Sweet Evil right now and the more I read, the more I love Anna. She rocks. Hope you like her as a heroine, as well ;)

      I think you are gonna love Sweet Evil and wait until you meet Kaidan Rowe. He is the male lead - Oh em gee. He is like a cross between √Čtienne St. Clair & William Herondale and has the English accent, too. Yes, haha ;)

      I am loving this book SO much right now! And yay for loving the red stilettos, too. *woot*

  4. WOW, great Anna description! I recently finished Sweet Evil and LOVED it. Gosh, it was such an amazing book!

    Anyways, to Anna. I was delighted reading about her. I found I easily liked her and in no time I was already pinning for her. I liked her internal battle between good and bad! And can't wait to see more of her in the next book (let's cross our fingers Sweet Hope gets published!).

    Nice feature :)
