Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I HATE in Books I LOVE


                Hello everyone!  Top Ten Tuesday is just how it sounds, a topic is picked and we put our Top Ten for that in a post and share and check out everyone’s answers.  Top Ten Tuesday is now being hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl.  I changed the original topic (characters I liked in books I didn't) because usually if I didn't like a book I don't remember the characters as well since I LOVE character books!  

The top ten today is:  Characters I disliked in books I loved

Minya from Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor- She creeped me out from the begging and never gained my favor.  Every time I wanted to feel something but dislike for her she hammered it home.

Alice & Slone from Our Dark Duet (Monsters of Verity #2) by Victoria Schwab- One is love to hate but the combo plus another evil was too much evil!

House Rok from Loom Saga by Elise Kova- Yveun Dono is one piece of work but he is not the worst by far!

Thaddeus from Sun Warrior (Tales of the New World #2) by P.C. Cast- He and his little pup too!  They were not the nicest of characters in book one but they went from obnoxious ass hats to sinister evil real quick!

Queen Maeve from Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas- So she is a testy witch when we first meet her and she only gets worse from there.  Keeping people in service to her and making them do things against their will…I hate her so much!

Zara Dearborn from Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices #2) by Cassandra Clare- She is evil and bitchy from the start.  She is an attention hog who wants everyone to bow down to her but doesn’t want to do the hard work.

King of Hybern from A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas- So we only hear of him in the first book but he’s the big bad that our evil was working under so clearly not a good guy then when he does come to he hurts my people and only goes downhill from there.

Seth from Covnant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout- Okay so I never loved him.  At the start I thought he was pushy and I consider him like I consider a rapist though my opinion of him only lowered as the series went on.

The Commandant from An Ember in the Ashes series by Sabaa Tahir- So she is basically just evil and vicious from the start which seems pretty self-explanatory.

Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer- Umm….again controlling people is just pure evil.  This seems to be a theme.
               

                So what do you think?  Tell me what you think of my list in the comments below.  Also please link back to your Top Ten as well so I can check out your list and see what I missed!

  1. I HATED the Commandant. I have yet to do the second book but I am really looking forward to knowing more about her story despite the fact I hate her.

  4. I hated Queen Levana too, but I also consider her to be a great villain. Maybe it's because I hated her 😂

  7. I did the same topic this week, so it's nice to have other ones to comment on. Queen Maeve was a good choice, and why did I not think of Zara? I wanted to punch her in the face for the entire book!

    1. I know right! I had just been talking to a friend who is finally reading Lord of Shadows (very slowly) and I got all worked up about her again lol.

  9. The only book on your list that I've read is Strange the Dreamer, and Minya definitely makes me uncomfortable too! I can't think of another character who has put me on edge as quickly.

    Here's my Top Ten Tuesday.

    1. I know it might be the perpetual child like aspect but yeah....bad stuff for sure!

  10. Levana, Maeve and the Commandant were all horrible indeed!

  11. I LOVE Levana!!! In that awesome villain kind of way. If I had to pick a disliked character from that series, it would be Cress. I know a lot of people LOVE her, but she's too clingy for me. Great twist on the topic-- the original topic was super hard!!

    1. Yes super hard for sure. And yes I love Cress but I can get how she wouldn't be everyones cup of tea and I agree Levanna is a great villain.

  12. Queen Levana just scared me. She was so damn creepy but in the end I loved to hate her.

  15. I liked how you switched this around. I think that would make a lot more sense. I haven't read a single book on your list but have most of them on my tbr list.

    1. I know so many TBR books I have everything lol

  16. We did the same topic switch! See, I thought about Levana, but honestly after reading Fairest I had a whole different perspective on her character and, therefore, could not include her on my list. But I completely understand. :)

    1. Fairest was a different side but in the end still had to include her.

  17. An Ember in the Ashes appeared on my list this week, but for a different reason. :)

  18. Great post! The King of Hybern is awful. :( Thanks for stopping by the blog earlier!

  19. I haven't read the Lunar Chronicles (I know... I'm probably the only reader EVER to have not read them), but I have seen lots of readers mention Queen Levana is one of the most evil characters ever. Guess it's good this type of series has such a creepy villain because it seems like the type of series/genre that could get away with it.

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland. :)
