It’s Tuesday, and you all know what that means! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is ‘Top 10 Characters I Just Didn’t Click With’ and doing this, I’ve realized there were a lot more characters I didn’t click with than I thought! Here they are, in no particular order:
1. Eadlyn from The Heir by Kiera Cass
Ah, Eadlyn. What can I say? America may not have been the best character, Eadlyn definitely takes the cake between the two of them for annoying characters! She was just so stuck-up and snobby throughout most of the book and although I praise Kiera Cass for taking a more unconvential route with her character, it just didn’t fully work out with me.
2. Nora from the Hush Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick
Ugh. I don’t know, I feel kind of guilty putting her on the list (hopefully I’m not the only one!) but I just didn’t click with her. She came off as a bit too helpless and needy for my taste. (And she literally burst into tears one time because of the upcoming danger she’d be facing…no joke.) I did like the books though, mostly! (You can check out my review on them here, here, here and here.)
3. Bella from the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer
Do I even need to explain this one? I mean, I suppose I liked the books okay, when I read them several years back, but I just didn’t click with her character. Nope.
4. Cassia from the Matched trilogy by Ally Condie
One of the main reasons I most certainly did not enjoy this book (and series) is because of the main character herself, Cassia, who is definitely one of the blandest characters I have had the not-so-pleasure of encountering. I honestly have no words
5. Adam from the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi
Ughhh someone has to put this guy in his place! Dude. Stop being so needy and MOVE ON. Not to mention stop being such a darn jerk!! I was okay with him in the first book, but I was most definitely wrong in doing so because soon after, needless to say, I did not like him!
6. Tariq from The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
Can someone please get some bricks to knock some sense into this guy? I just didn’t like his character at all; he definitely cannot take a hint, and it was incredibly annoying to watch him pursue after a girl who obviously isn’t interested. -_-
7. Grace from The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater
She’s an okay character, I suppose, but she was a bit too angsty at times and there was just something about her that didn’t sit right with me. Afterwards I warmed up to her more though, but that initial feeling never really completely went away. I still enjoyed the series though, which is good. 😉
8. Laurel from Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
I recently finished this novel, and I just didn’t click with her. Especially not at the start. The book itself was okay (although it really felt like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, from the POV of a girl) but it took me a while to warm up to Laurel, and even then, it wasn’t fully.
9. Rose from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Although I really like the series overall, in the first book I just didn’t click with Rose. She was reckless to the point of being a bit ridiculous, and her attitude just didn’t sit well with me. Of course, I liked her a lot more by the end of the series, but in the first book, she wasn’t the best for me.
10. Tate from Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
Although I liked Ugly Love okay enough, I wasn’t a fan of Tate. I really wanted to be though, but I just didn’t care for her much and she fell pretty flat for me.
I actually wasn’t expecting that I’d be able to make it to 10! I usually like most of the characters in the books I read. But there we have it! What characters did YOU not click with? Do we have any in common? Let me know in the comments below—and feel free to link your TTT post if you have one, I’d love to check it out! ❤
