T5W – Most Unlikable Characters

t5w new header

It’s that time of the week again when I bring you the Top 5 Wednesdays, created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know how T5W works you can go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. This week theme is Most Unlikable CharactersThe characters are not villains. We have to choose protagonists or side characters that we were supposed to like but in the end we didn’t like them at all. While I normally like everyone one there are a few characters that I didn’t like that much and those characters are my picks for this week.

unlikeable characters

1. Mark Blackthorn – The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare

Here’s the thing, I don’t hate Mark and I think I might like him in the next few books but I still don’t know how I feel about him. First of all, I still don’t trust him. I really hope I’m wrong and he’s a good guy but I can’t trust him right now. Secondly, I don’t like the way he acted towards Jules most of the time. I can see where he was coming from but it doesn’t mean that I have to like it.

2. America Singer – The Selection by Kiera Cass

I’m pretty sure this will be a common name in a lot of posts today. I can’t deal with America Singer. It’s so bad that I gave up in the series after The Elite. I just couldn’t deal more with her indecision about things (when it was clear what she wanted) and I really don’t like her. The good thing about not finishing the series: I don’t have to deal with her daughter Eadlyn. I heard she’s worse than America and I would probably hate her… a lot.

3. Kayla Cannon – Impossible Love by Kimberly Readnour

I think I might be getting too picky about characters because I’ve been hating characters that almost everyone else that has read the book loves and Kayla Cannon is one of those characters. I didn’t like that girl at all. I’m sorry but I can’t like a girl who changes her mind about something just because she sees a hot guy with great abs. I also can’t deal with all the unecessary drama that she created. Everything would have been easier if she had talked about important things with her boyfriend instead of only thinking about how hot he was and how much wanted to have sex with him. Worst of all, I can’t deal with a girl who forgets about her sick mom just because she’s busy with a guy she just met. I hated (I also hated Kai but not as much). If you want to see more reasons why I  don’t like Kayla and this book you can read my review here.

4. Britta and James – Lessons of the Heart by Jodie Larson

This is another example of “Cátia is getting too picky for her own taste” XD. Almost everyone that read this book loved it. Almost everyone loved the characters… I hated the characters. Britta was immature as hell and did some really stupid and mean things. James was creepy as hell and, I’m sorry, but stalking your student to another city and get a room in front of her room is wrong. Their relationship was stupid and those two couldn’t control each other at all. Let’s just say that I hated them and that ruined the book for me. I could go on with reasons why I don’t like Britta and James but this post would be too long. If you want to know more you can read my review here.

5. Emma Woodhouse – Emma by Jane Austen

Let me start by saying something, I love Jane Austen and I’ve read all of her books with one exception… Emma. I tried, I really did but I really don’t like Emma and I can’t deal with her so I gave up on reading this book… twice. I just can’t make myself finish it and the only reason for that is the fact that I don’t like the main character. I even tried to watch the movie. You want to know what happened? I couldn’t finish it because, once again, I didn’t like Emma at all.

These are some Most Unlikable Characters. What about you? Which characters would you include in your top? 😀

  1. I actually totally agree with you about Mark! And we all know he’s not going to be pleasant with this whole Emma/Jules “what is happening right now” situation in the next book. Oh, and the temptation to put 80% of The Selection characters is real…

  4. Haha I can see why so many people hated America, but while I didn’t love her I didn’t hate her. Her indecisiveness WAS annoying, but not enough for me to hate her I guess. I just felt pretty meh about her
