Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters People Love that I Just Don't Get

Hey guys and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni and today I will be participating in the weekly meme hosted by the lovely ladies at The Broke and Bookish! Today's topic are then characters that everyone seems to love that I just don't get. While this doesn't happen usually, there are some well known characters that I just hate.

10.) Jase Winstead from Be With Me
I recently just read Be With Me last month. However, Jase's character just fell flat. I was expecting more out of a Jennifer L. Armentrout love interest. I just didn't really sympathize with him at all. 
9.) Andrea from Scorched
Andrea just annoyed me. This is from yet another Armentrout novel. Scorched is actually the sequel to Frigid, which was the first ever NA novel I read. Andrea was a secondary character in Frigid, and the main character in Scorched. Her character just rubbed me the wrong way and the decisions she made just made me angry.

8.) Josh from To All the Boys I've Loved Before
Josh annoyed me so much! Besides Alex (he's coming soon!), Josh is my least favorite Jenny Han character. I just....ugh. I didn't like him and how he was the 'other love interest" for Lara jean in the first book of the duology. 
7.) Christian from the Unearthly Trilogy
Yet another love interest I didn't like! Once I get on a ship, I start really disliking the other love interest. This was definitely the case here. I felt that Christian was really one dimensional, and didn't really serve a purpose except in the first book. 
6.) Alex Lind from Burn for Burn Trilogy
Oh man. I really don't like Alex. If I said that Christian is one dimensional, Alex doesn't even exist. He's that cookie cutter boy next door that secretly loves you. Instead of that being endearing, he just came off as pathetic to me. Maybe I'm just angry at how the series ended?
5.) Ren from the Tiger Saga
Here is the biggest reason that I do not like Ren: he's a sexist. I understand he was born in that time period, but when the book takes place its modern time. He's lived throughout the years and has seen women rights progress, so why is it so hard for him to accept that women also have valid opinions?
4.) Day and June from Legend
The reason I don't like Day and June is because I didn't feel anything for them. I've noticed that there has been a disconnect between me and Marie Lu's characters. Legend was a fun novel to read, but it didn't do anything for me. 
3.) Daemon from Obsidian
Before you freak out, I only didn't like Daemon from Obsidian, the first book in the Lux series. I actually loved him in the third, fourth, and fifth novel. However, Daemon frustrated me to no end in Obsidian. 
2.) Jace and Clary from City of Bones
When I read City of Bones for the first time, I didn't really like it. Both Jace and Clary annoyed me to no end. They seemed much too juvenile and petty in the first book. However, I started liking them in City of Ashes and I adore them now!
1.) Tamlin from ACOTAR
Here's my number one! It's not that I don't like Tamlin, it's just that I like Rhysand so much more. I don't understand how people obsess over Tamlin so much! He kind of creeps me out sometimes. But if you look back on my reaction after I finished reading the book, I absolutely loved him. I think my taste in love interests have shifted since then.  

So that was my top ten for this week! What are some characters you just don't like?

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading!

  1. I've been wanting to read the Burn for Burn books! I need to get to them soon!:D
    Great Top Ten!

    1. Thanks Giovanna! They're really great. Jenny Han is one of my favorite authors out there. :) I was pretty disappointed with the final novel though. Hope you like them!

  2. That's a lot of new-for-me books - the only one I've read is City of Bones and I can't quite remember how I felt about Jace and Clary.
    Characters I just don't like? Basically everyone in A Game of Thrones. I just can't feel anything for them!

    1. Yeah I was trying to showcase some that many people might not know. I guess if you don't remember Jace and Clary, they weren't that stand out! I haven't read Game of Thrones just because I don't think I'd connect to the characters. Thanks for commenting and the follow! :D

  3. Clary and Jace definitely get better as the series goes on - otherwise I may not have finished the series... And yes Daemon was irritating - still haven't decided if I will continue that series or not. As for To All the Boys I've Loved Before, Lara Jean is the character that I didn't get - I was convinced I was reading about a 12 year old...

    1. Yeah by Coty of Glass I started to really like them. Daemon gets very mushy-gushy in the last two books, so that might throw you off too. I was fine with Lara Jean, except for the fact that she jumped to far fetched conclusions way too often.

  4. I completely agree with Josh. Thanks for visiting our blog.

    1. Glad to know I'm not the only one! You're welcome. :)
