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

Tongue

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

Adultery

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!

DAY Ten

Picture1

Woah! I thought I will not be able to blog today. Luckily I am able to have some free short time.

So here is beckysblogs‘ 30 Day Book Challenge’s question for Day 10.

10. A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving it.

Oh! That will be the Twilight  series by Stephenie Meyer.

I am not really fan of vamps and witches and all those supernatural creatures. My niche is really on realistic romance, philosophical fictions and crime mysteries. That is why I really have no interest on reading Twilight, which back then was really creating endless buzz.

Until my friend Ericka, asked me and my boyfriend to accompany her and her boyfriend on their movie date. They would like to watch Eclipse. I have no choice so I go. I watched Twilight and New Moon first so I will not look like a fool while watching the series’ third installment. After I watched Eclipse, I liked the story but still, I am not really crazy about it yet.

It was when I watched the Breaking Dawn part 2 when I was really awe-struck on how well the screenplay was written. Because of that movie, I have decided to read the book.

That is a decision that I will never ever regret!

DAY One

I have seen this challenge in thesepaperwords‘ blog and I got this here: beckysblogs.

I’m excited to join so here it is!

1. A book series you wish had gone on longer OR  a book series you wish would just end already.

Oh! that would surely be the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. This is the only novel turned movie that I absolutely love both versions. The four novels are ingeniously written while the movie is equally well-made. I will not forget the final movie, Breaking Dawn Part 2, as it is the only movie, yet, that made me want to stand and clap when it ended. It’s just so great.

Unlike other Young Adult series, this series managed to sustain the action and thrills from the first book up to the last. It is indeed a book that would make you ask for more!

I would also like how would Edward and Bella would be like as parents to Renesmee. I would want to read about their small talks and small act of love that really tugs the heart. I am also quite interested how would Jacob court Renesmee. 

The how’s what-if’s are just endless and undeniably I would want to have another book about this series!
