A Countdown of

The 5 Characters You Have New Year's Resolutions For

5. Lisbeth Salander of the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson
My goal for Lisbeth Salander in 2015 is simple: hack into the hackers' accounts who stole nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence and other celebrities from the cloud, and post nude photos of the hackers on the internet. I have all sorts of other ideas of what to do with those hackers, but I like to keep things fair- a nude photo for a nude photo.

4. Shadow of American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Shadow seriously needs a personality. Yes, I know the whole metaphorical point of this weird-ass book rests on that he doesn't have one, that he is, in fact, a shadow, but good God people. I don't care about metaphors when a main character (a protagonist, no less) doesn't have ANY character.

From Wikipedia
3. Sansa Stark of A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin
Sansa needs to find a purpose. I can't expand on that without dreaded spoilers, but she really needs some point to her life, something to look forward to. Because right now, it appears she has little to no agenda, and that cannot be had in a character in this fantastic series.

2. Kip of the Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks
This one should be quite easy, as it doesn't require much. Kip needs to stop referring to himself as a "turtle bear". Whenever I hear that phrase, I cringe internally. It isn't the best catch phrase to describe yourself with, especially since he may or may not have a different title sooner or later.

1. Harry Dresden of The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher 
The tv show "What Not to Wear" should be resurrected for a single episode- the Harry Dresden Makeover. I'm not saying that he doesn't have a certain style, I'm saying that at some point he has to stop pretending he lives in the Old West and a modern day trailer park at the same time. That's all.

Which other characters do you have New Year's Resolutions for? Have you ever been frustrated by a character who lacks purpose?
