Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Top Ten Characters Who Irritate Me

I wrote this a bit ago, and I'm a bit sad about it, after reading discussions about the unlikable female character.  Nevertheless, how does one limit this to just 10?  Sadly for me, there are often characters who irritate me.  I decided to keep the list to just main characters, because if I didn't, this list would be endless. Here are some of the worst offenders:

There was absolutely nothing likable about Kit.  She's one of those people I would hate in real life, even if she wasn't a serial killer.  She a hypocrite, and one of those people that thinks they are smarter than everyone else.

Bianca wasn't too bad in the first book, but by the end of the series I wanted to punch her in the face if I could.  She is just immature and stupid.

I liked Maddy in the first book.  I thought the character was one you could root for.  I hated her in the second book.  I was actually hoping for bad things to happen to her.

I found Olive to be nuts.  I don't know if it was on purpose, but her personality grated on me.  I think it prevented me from enjoying the book.

I have repeatedly said I have a love/hate relationship with this book.  America is one of the main reasons why.  She sucks.  I just can't get behind her, and find her annoying and stupid. 

Probably one of the most unlikeable characters I have come across. Brooklyn is someone who will do anything for popularity.  She is immature, annoying, and stupid.

I have a ton of issues with Bella, and I'm trying to stick with that.  I can go on and on about why Bella sucks, but I'm sure she will make many people's list.  Bonus points for Renessame, who might just be the most pointless character in the history of books.  Man just writing about this book is irritating the crap out of me.

It's one thing to be weird and different.  Evie is so strange, awkward, and just plain weird that I couldn't connect with her at all.  She was irritatingly weird.  Her weirdness is probably the only thing I remember from this book.


  1. OOh nice topic! Definitely agree with Bella. There's not enough time to dish on her! Hesitant to read Claudia's series now if the heroine is going to irritate me eventually!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. I almost went with a similar theme, but decided to change it because I felt like I was being too negative. Well, sometimes characters just rub you the wrong way, don't they? I completely agree about Bella (and Renesmee)... and I've heard so much about how stupid America Singer is that I'm going to avoid The Selection like the plague.

  5. Bella always takes the cake for me. She is so winey. But then I liked her sometimes as she came off so strong. I think the Twilight Saga needs a re-read from as I am 4 years older now :') maybe I will like it or dislike more!

    Thanks for sharing + great list! :)
