January 29: Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters Ever
1. Abby from Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire: Again, a book that I know A LOT of people loved, but I didn't. To me, she just made so many stupid decisions! Yes Abby, definitely stay in a player's apartment because you lost a bet and agree to sleep IN HIS OWN BED when you think the girls he sleeps with are STD infested. Yes. Definitely...
2. Mackenzie from The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa: She wasn't that BAD of a character, but she annoyed me quite a bit when I was reading. To me, she was depicted as almost like a perfect Barbie doll. At times, she also insisted to come with Ethan to battle when she couldn't defend herself, only to be captured. Multiple times. >__<
3. Emma from The Future of Us by Jay Asher: I LOVED the concept of the book, but until the very end, Emma failed to see the consequences of her actions. But the reason why really annoyed me: she basically wanted a richer, more handsome husband, and couldn't stop because she wanted more!
4. Gemma from Wake by Amanda Hocking: So. Three beautiful girls visit the town, teens from their town disappear, so they MUST be the ones responsible AND have superpowers right? Definitely. /sarcasm.
5. Sydney from Bloodlines by Richelle Mead: I know a lot of people would disagree with this, but I just couldn't connect with her character. At times, she was a warrior, but most of the time, it seemed like she would be perfectly fine with vampires and their abilities one minute, then totally hating them the next. It also seemed like she was a really dry character.
6. Kate from Die for Me by Amy Plum: ALL she thought about was Vincent. Vincent this, Vincent that. I just felt like I didn't want to hear about him anymore - I wanted more action!
7. Clary from City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare: Especially in the second book, I enjoyed the action & magic, but disliked Clary. She didn't seem to do ANYTHING useful, and, erm, lusts for someone who is supposed to be her brother.
8. Bella from Twilight by Stephanie Meyer: I did not get this girl. Just. No. All she seemed to think about was Edward and his sparkly-ness. erperp.
9. Kate from Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter: I mainly hated the fact that she'd insult Persephone for leaving Henry, Ava for dating another guy and causing them to fight, while Kate herself would still be thinking about James.
10. Pia from Origin by Jessica Khoury: For the most part, I did like Pia, but in the beginning of the book, everyone tells her she's perfect. Then, when she's finally told she has a flaw, she completely flips. It's understandable, considering her background, but it ticked me off a bit.
Let's chat! How about you guys? Any particularly frustrating characters? Opinions on my picks? I'd love to know!
