Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.
For today’s Top Ten Tuesday, I’m going to share ten characters that I *sadly* just didn’t click with, for a multitude of reasons.
*Links on text will lead to my review/s (if applicable) and photos will link to the book’s GR page!
#1. Hazel Grace Lancaster (The Fault in Our Stars)
HOLD YOUR TOMATOES–I don’t hate Hazel. I just didn’t click with her. She was wayyy to deep thinking and old-sounding for my taste. She’d probably be one of those people I’m weirded out by in school. I respect her, though. She’s just not the kind of person I’d make an effort to befriend.
#2. Tate Collins (Ugly Love)
Now we have someone I really don’t like–Tate Collins. This woman is a doormat. She let Miles step all over her, and I’m not okay with having a friend like that, thank you very much. Also, she’s a creeper.
#3. Elizabeth Grey (The Witch Hunter)
There are two reasons I don’t like Elizabeth: 1) she makes rash decisions without thinking of the consequences, and b) she lets everyone tell her what the heck to do, and what the heck to believe in. Definitely not the badass heroine I’m looking for.
#4. Julia (Never Always Sometimes)
I CAN’T EVEN REMEMBER HER LAST NAME. Anyway, I remember that I seriously hated her, and that’s what counts. I explained in depth in my review why I say she’s a bitch, but generally, she’s a manipulative girl who thinks way too highly of herself.
#5. Gia Montgomery (The Fill-in Boyfriend)
The thing with Gia is, I click with her situation, but I don’t click with her. I mean, I totally understand what she’s going through, but WTF is up with some of her choices and decisions? Girl, please grow up.
#6. Prince Maxon (The Selection)
If I’m being 100% honest, I don’t understand the hype over this guy AT ALL. He’s so hot-and-cold and way too inconsistent for me. One minute he’s flirty, and the next he’s a total piece of cardboard.
Also, I think he’s boring. #noshame
#7. Cinna (The Hunger Games)
I don’t even know why I don’t like Cinna! I found him sort of meh in the books–like he’s there, and that’s okay, whatever, but for some reason his character was really annoying in the movies. Maybe it’s because his eyebrows are always scrunched up and he’s making me confused as to why he always looks angry. Anyway.
#8. Mare Barrow (Red Queen)
Mare is a Special Snowflake, and you know how much I don’t like those. Let’s give her brownie points for being a huge flirt, too.
#9. Calaena Sardothien (Throne of Glass)
Again, friends, HOLD YOUR HORSES. What I’m going to say only applies to the Calaena we were introduced to in book one. In Throne of Glass, Calaena was said to be a totally badass assassin, but I never got that vibe from her until the second book, which led me to not clicking with her in the first. Okay, I still didn’t “click” with her in the sequels, but I admired her.
#10. Prince Kai (Cinder)
Prince Kai isn’t a bad character, but COME ON, people. Compare him to the sweet, endearing Wolf and the charming, funny Captain Thorne… Basically his personality just isn’t strong enough to click with me.
What did you think of this week’s picks? Which characters are you just not into?
