I thought I had this topic nailed. It wasn’t until I had half of my list composed that I was running dry on characters to hate. There are the main ones (Snape, Thomas, Dimitri) that came straight to mind when I saw the today’s topic. But about those ones I could rant about for the whole day and so I didn’t have many other characters that I thought I disliked. Never the less, my list has ten names so this list has a range from pure hatred to mild dislike.
1. Thomas (from The Maze Runner by James Dashner)
Thomas is the reason I won’t read past the first book in this trilogy. I mean, he was just so ANNOYING. Not only was he the slowest character I have ever read about, he was also probably the dumbest and I did not agree with most of the things he did.
The only time I really loved his character is in book 4 and 5 and those of you who read Vampire Academy will know why that is. His character was ‘okay’ before those two books and he would not be on this list if it wasn’t for the last book which made made me want to throw that book repeatedly against the wall.
While we’re on this series, I might as well mention Adrian. He was one of my absolute favourite characters in Vampire Academy. He was so charming and wonderful and brilliant and I loved him so so so much. Now notice that I put “from the Bloodlines series” at the top. Yupp. Bloodlines ruined his character for me. I just didn’t think that the Adrian I read in Vampire Academy was the same one in Bloodlines and yes, yes, character development and all that but I honestly didn’t make it past book three because of how much this bothered me.
I just found her really boring, especially after six books of the utterly hilarious and badass Rose Hathaway. She frustrated me a lot while I was reading the first three books of the series and unless someone assures me the rest of the books aren’t in her POV, I don’t think I’ll finish the series.
Honestly, I don’t understand. It has been EIGHT YEARS and still people believe that he’s a hero and should be worshiped. Yes, I acknowledge that he is a complex character and yes I love complex character but I hate him with a passion. I will most likely make a whole post just ranting about him and how people say he was the bravest man Harry had in his life. But for now I will just sit back and enjoy the fact that although I’m sometimes disappointed with the people that are on tumblr, I am very happy with the fact that 99.99999% of the fandom is united in believing that Harry naming his son Albus Severus Potter is the biggest load of crap they have ever heard.
The first book was great. It just kind of went downhill from there. With every book she got older by a year and yet she still acted like an 11-year-old throughout the three books that I’ve read.
7. Jason Grace (from The Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan)
I just didn’t like him. There’s no concrete reason behind it except for maybe that he’s pretty useless most of the time and always gets knocked out in a fight. Maybe it’s because I just like Percy better.
8 + 9. Sam and Grace (from The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater)
There’s nothing really about them that I disliked but they were just so boring. I though the relationship between Cole and Isabelle was much more interesting and so their one companion novel was so much better than the three books of Sam and Grace.
10. Cassia (from the Matched trilogy by Allie Condie)
I didn’t like this book in general. I couldn’t relate to the main character and found her to be narrow-minded, a hypocrite and her distribution of blame within those 100 pages or so of the book that I managed to stomach wasn’t great at all.
So that’s my Top Ten for the week! Let me know how is on your list or leave a link and I’ll make sure to check it out!
