Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters You Just Didn’t Click With


There are characters that you can’t forget. And there are some that you wish you never read. – rosemawrites

The Broke and the Bookish‘s Top Ten Tuesday for today is quite hard to fill.

September 1: Ten Characters You Just Didn’t Click With

Yep. So I reviewed the books that I have read and recalled each stories’ character. (Yes it was hard but it is surprisingly fun as well! :))

Just to be clear, there are novels here that I actually love. But there are characters in it that I really don’t like.

Now here’s the top ten list of my pet peeves, novel’s character edition:

1.  Tate of Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Ugly Love

WHO? Tate Collins is a woman who doesn’t have time for love.

WHY? I don’t like her because she somehow ‘suggested’ the sexual arrangement with Miles. Please don’t get me wrong. It’s just that I am a believer of high morals, specially for women. 🙂

2. Guinevere Beck of You by Caroline Kepnes

You (You, #1)

WHO? The beautiful and seductive woman being fantasized and stalked by Joe Goldberg.

WHY? Joe Goldberg is somehow the antagonist in this story as he is Beck’s crazy stalker. On the other hand, Beck plays with boys. She used her beauty to get what she want and she give her admirers false hopes.

3. Scarlett of The Vanishing Point by Val McDermid

The Vanishing Point

WHO? Scarlett is a high-profile reality TV star who, dying of cancer and alienated from her unreliable family, entrusted her son to Stephanie.

WHY? I pitied Scarlett during the first half of the book. But when truths were revealed, I just can’t help but hate her. She’s insane. Really.

4. Jung Ji-won by Tongue by Kyung-ran Jo


WHO? Jung Ji-won, a celebrated chef, lost her boyfriend of seven years . She also lost the cooking school she ran from their home.  She even lost her ability to taste.

WHY? I don’t understand her. I think she’s a bit too shallow.

5. Princess Eadlyn of The Heir (The Selection, #4) by Kiera Cass

The Heir (The Selection, #4)

WHO? She is the eldest child of America Singer and Prince Maxon.

WHY? She’s a brat. I just didn’t like her personality. I am a fan of The Selection, The Elite and The One but I think The Heir is really disappointing mostly because of Princess Eadlyn.

6.  Maddy Carson of Scared Scriptless by Alison Sweeney

Scared Scriptless

WHO? Maddy Carson, a 35 year-old talented script supervisor, who never wants to date an actor.

WHY? I was not able to relate to her.

7. Linda of Adultery by Paulo Coelho


WHO? She is 31-year old successful journalist with an almost perfect life. She has a solid and stable marriage to a rich and loving husband, sweet and well-behaved children.

WHY? She’s an adulterer. And she initiated the affair. I hate her!

8. Tally Youngblood of Uglies (Uglies, #1)

Uglies (Uglies, #1)

WHO? She is a 16-year old girl main character of the story. Her ‘ugly’ name is Squint.

WHY?  Uglies actually has a very unique premise but the characters destroyed it. Tally lacks the sense and bravery of the best YA heroines like Katniss of The Hunger Games, Bella of Twilight and Tris of Divergent. She’s so indecisive and she lacks will and determination.

9. Peeta Mellark of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

WHO? He is a baker’s son from District 12, who was reaped along Katniss Everdeen for the 74th Hunger Games.

WHY? I am team Gale! 😀 I like Gale more than Peeta for Katniss. That’s why my heart was broken when I finished reading The Mockingjay!

10. Jacob Black of New Moon (Twilight, #2) by Stephenie Meyer

New Moon (Twilight, #2)

 WHO? He is Bella’s friend who shapeshift to a wolf.
 WHY? I really don’t like third-wheels, eh? I am definitely Team Edward so I really don’t like him!
That was it!
Please share to me your thoughts!

  1. I had the opportunity to get an ARC of Adultery but chose not to accept it because I could tell that I was not going to like the characters. Glad I skipped it because clearly this was true! Great list 🙂

  2. I’ve waited for Princess Eadlyn to pop up in some of the lists for this week. I’ve yet to read the book, but I’ve heard from a lot of people that she is a spoiled brat 😀
    P.S. To answer your question – yes, we can be friends 🙂 There is facebook link somewhere in the About Me section on my blog if you want to add me there 🙂

    1. Yes! She is such a brat! It’s just sad because I really liked The Selection series but The Heir was just so annoying because of her. :/
      BTW, thank you! I’ll try to add you soon! I cannot follow you blog because your using blogspot while I am in WordPress. 😦 I followed you in Google+, though! 🙂 Nice meeting you! 🙂


  3. Wow, most of these characters sound pretty terrible 🙂
    Naturally, I agree with you about Peeta and Jacob (another character I was confused about -who are you and why are you important, lol).
    And we both had unfaithful characters (mine was Emma Bovary. But honestly, I don’t know why her horrific amounts of debt aren’t more frequently addressed).
    Great list, and thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. Yep. They are terrible, for me. 😀 And we both hate unfaithful characters!

      Thank you as well! Thank you so much for visiting and reading my post! 🙂 Nice meeting you Rebekah.

      (P.S. I have a sister named Rebecca. :D)


  4. I am most definitely Team Edward too! YAY! And Team Gale (they were SO much better together)

    I don’t really what to think about Eadlyn, mostly because I read the entire series in a matter of one night, and so I don’t have very coherent thoughts about it!

    Have a lovely week:)
