Top Ten Tuesday: Characters Everyone Loves But I Don’t

top 10 tuesday

Hello, welcome back to another Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:

Ten Characters Everyone Loves But I Just Don’t Get or Ten Characters I LOVE But Others Seem To Dislike

I’m doing characters that I don’t like as much as other people seem to ;).


1. Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter)

I honestly don’t get this one. Sure, the kid is highly influenced by his family and stuff, but I don’t see any redeeming qualities in him… sorry.

   

 


2. Professor Snape (Harry Potter)

This one is tricky, because I DO like Snape, I just don’t LOVE him. I don’t think that what he did deserves that much love, to be honest… he wasn’t a nice person. He was a guy who did what he did because he loved someone. If Harry was anyone else’s son, he would have died in the first year.


3. Scarlet Benoit (The Lunar Chronicles)

Again, it’s not that I don’t like Scarlet, I just don’t get overly excited about her… except in Winter, she kicked ass in Winter.

  

  


4. Nehemia Ytger (Throne of Glass)

I never felt strongly for her… NEVER! Not even in that moment in Crown of Midnight. I appreciated that she had a responsibility and that she tried to do good by her people and by Celaena, but I thought her methods were wrong.

  


5. John Ambrose McClaren (P.S.: I Still Love You)

I kind of get why people have some trouble with Peter, but I had a lot of problem with John!! Why was he freaking even there? As good as he might have been to Lara Jean, she belonged with Peter and John should have stayed the hell away.

  


6. Aristotle (Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe)

Ari annoyed me so much at times. He was a good character, but I honestly couldn’t deal with him at some points, and I think this is why I didn’t enjoy the book as much as some people did.

  


7. Maia Roberts (The Mortal Instruments)

By the last book I found her quite nice and tolerable, but for most of the time I just dreaded her POVs. Also, her whole think with Jordan? Sad and I didn’t like it… I liked him.

   


8. Penny (Girl Online)

To be totally honest, Penny was not the only one I had problems with during this book, I had a huge problem with the book itself. Still, Penny irritated me to no end when she thought her best friend was the one responsible for the scandal, without even giving him the benefit of the doubt.

  


9. Lola Nolan (Lola and the Boy Next Door)

Again, it’s not that I don’t like Lola, because I do, she’s funny and sweet. But I had a lot of problems with her during the book, especially until the last third or so. She had a weird temper, and she wanted to be a grown up, without having any idea what it meant.

   


10. Jacob Black (Twilight)

This one should come as no surprise. Jacob NO! No no no!

To all the boys I’ve loved before (Jenny Han)

>>  Nº 34 on My 2015 Reading Challenge – A book with a love triangle <<

71pmD5qI3DL

What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them…all at once?

Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.

This book is so cute! I really enjoyed it. About the love triangle thing, I wanted to leave this category to one of the classics, but truth is, this would then be the second book that I read that did not go anywhere, and I couldn’t have that. Anyway, there’s no lacking in love triangles on this book, we have the Margot – Josh – Lara Jean, Lara Jean – Peter K. – Genevieve and finally Peter K. – Lara Jean – Josh.

Fair warning, there might be SPOILERS!

I have to admit that I was worried at first, the reviews said great things, but for the first few chapters I could not relate to Lara Jean, and she felt a lot younger than she should be. But then, once she start’s hanging out with Peter and begins relaxing and being more herself, she grows up a lot and it’s so much easier to relate to and to really like her.

Again, I was a bit worried that the focus of the book would be Josh… See, I really started to like Peter, I thought he was great. Luckily, Lara Jean realized the same 😉 !!!

About her family, loved her dad, loved Kitty, not crazy about Margot. Still wondering why the hell she broke up with Josh, because having sex with the boyfriend of 2 years should not be reason enough. Also, did not like Chris at all! Kitty, oh, I love that kid, I was on to her from the start!!!!

I can’t wait to read P.S. I Still Love You, because I have so many questions in my head. Also, I want to read her letter to Josh, because he get Peter’s and two others, but we don’t read Josh’s… I want to.

All in all, quite enjoyable, it left a smile on my face – I kind of liked it that it didn’t have a proper ending, it left me craving for more.
