– Day 4: Who’s your least favourite female character and why? –
This is actually a hard one. My first thought went to Dolores Umbridge, but honestly, no, I hate her (more than anyone else in these books), but she’s so well written that I like to read about her, you know?! I love to hate her!
So my least favorite is the next despicable woman in the Harry Potter series: Rita Skeeter!
I just find her despicable in every sense of the world. The way bends the words to her will, and takes pleasure in ruining someone else’s lives just to get ahead, really makes my skin crawl… because, unfortunately, she’s a very real character! There are so many people that are just like her, that it’s scary to think about how low some people are willing to sink to get ahead.
Best moment was when Hermione outsmarted her (like the bright witch she is) and trapped her in that jar! I laughed so much, first because it was so Hermione-like thing to do, but mostly, because Rita Skeeter deserved it most than anyone!
