Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. Today, we’re talking about characters we didn’t click with. Which in my opinion, means that they would be a character I wouldn’t get along with in real life.
P.S. The titles will lead you to their Goodreads page.
Anastasia & Christian // Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James // The characters were part one of what I disliked about this novel. I found Anastasia to be boring, naive and ridiculous. And don’t even get me started on Christian. Hell no. I don’t mean to offend anyone by saying all of this, it’s just my opinion.
Lottie // Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella // This was the first Sophie Kinsella book I didn’t like. I just couldn’t deal with Lottie. She’s insane! I actually skimmed so many pages with this one. I just couldn’t deal with it. Her boyfriend suggests a trip instead of proposing so she decides to marry someone else. She’s convinced she loves him. WHAT? I DON’T UNDERSTAND.
Eadlyn // The Heir (The Selection #4) by Kiera Cass // Two words: spoiled brat. If Eadlyn were an actual person, she’d get a slap for every bratty thing she would say or do. So she’d be slapped constantly. I get that a character can be bratty for a while. But seriously. She was mad when someone didn’t curtsy or stated their opinion when it wasn’t equal to hers. Yeah.
Phoebe // The List by Joanna Bolouri // Nope. Like I said in my review, one of the reasons I didn’t like this book is because I was misled about the plot. I didn’t get Phoebe . She thought she would be happier if she completed a sex bucket list. And the thing with her ex is superweird. I felt like the only things I knew about Phoebe by the end were her preferences in sex…
Kelsey // Last Year’s Mistake by Gina Ciocca // While I did enjoy this novel, I just didn’t click with Kelsey. I thought she overreacted a lot and her whole misunderstanding, being the school’s joke and leaving David just seemed ridiculous to me. I mean, the whole reveal just left me underwhelmed.
Anyone -except for Simon // City of Bones (Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare // It’s not a secret that I don’t get along with TMI. I gave up after reading the fourth book a few years ago. I didn’t really like the characters, and the story started to feel stretched out to me. So yeah, sorry to all the TMI lovers out there…
Kathy // Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro // Again, another well loved book that I didn’t love. I don’t know but I felt so disconnected this entire read! Especially to the main character.
Todd // The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick Ness // I have a feeling I’m crushing some fangirl-hearts today. This was just too chaotic for me –see what I did there? And I didn’t really click with Todd either. Although I did love Manchee, his dog. The dog was pretty much the only part of the book that I loved.
Adam // Fracture Me (Shatter Me #2.5) by Tahereh Mafi // I’m a definite Warner girl. Adam was just whiny. Sorry.
Thomas // The Maze Runner (Maze Runner #1) by James Dashner // Another well loved book… SORRY GUYS. I just didn’t really get along with it.
Those are my picks for this week’s topic! Have you read any of these books? If you have, what did you think about these characters? Feel free to leave a link to your TTT, I’d love to check them out.
