Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. The above image was taken and altered by me for the purpose of this post.
As readers we all have those characters that we identify with, those characters that we side with and cheer on, those characters that we consider our favorites. I am no different dear readers! Of course I have characters that I consider to be my favorite. But I also have characters that I don’t like. And today, this post is dedicated to them!
My top ten least favorite characters are:
Margo Covey from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – I just found her to be too overbearing and controlling.
Callie Reyes from Puddin’ by Julie Murphy – She was an abrupt character. And very guarded. I feel like I didn’t have to get to know this character to know that I didn’t like her.
Ophelia Castellan from A Wounded Name by Dot Hutchinson – It wasn’t that I didn’t like Ophelia, I didn’t like most of the choices she made.
Percy Weasley from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling – I stand by my feelings on this one. While I love the Weasley’s as a whole, I absolutely detest Percy. I felt like he betrayed his family, and you just don’t do that, no matter what.
Tris Prior from the Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth – At first I liked her, but as I read, I found that she grated on my nerves.
Kate from The Summer I Found You by Jolene Perry – I couldn’t help but shake my head at her. There were things that this character did that I just didn’t like that it made me not like the character.
Deanna Lambert from Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr – I don’t remember the exact reason as to why I didn’t like her, (it’s been a while since I’ve read this book) but I remember not liking her. It brought the overall book down.
Miss Peregrine from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs – When I first read this book, I loved Miss Peregrine. But when I re-read this book, even though I still loved the book as a whole I didn’t love Miss Peregrine. I found that she always seemed to have her best interest at heart as opposed to the peculiar children’s interests.
Again, I’ve come up two short! But I guess I like more characters than I dislike. Which is a good thing, right?! Do you have any characters that you don’t necessarily like or love? If so, please share in the comments.
