Top Ten Characters That I Don’t Really Like That Everyone Loves


Today’s TTT (hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) topic is characters that everyone loves but I don’t really like. I may be a little lenient on these choices because I don’t really hate them, but I just don’t love them either. Also, I might not have ten either. But without further ado, I’ll get started!

First up,

Cress Darnel (The Lunar Chronicles)

Crescent_Moon_Darnel_Full_Body_Shot I hate to say this because I know I may get some hate on this one, but I just couldn’t get into Cress. Everyone always says their favorite character was Cress and their favorite OTP was Cress and Thorne, but to me Cress was okay okay. Sure she was an awesome hacker and really helped the group, but she always seemed a little younger than she was. Definitely not my favorite.





Lola (Lola and the Boy Next Door)

Lola Sorry, but Lola was a little too much for me. I didn’t like her outrageous costumes and wigs because they were just too over the top. I felt like she was just trying way too hard  to be different.

Also, I hated the way she treated her boyfriend once Cricket came back just because we were suddenly supposed to hate him.

Though I did really love Cricket Bell ❀




Snape (Harry Potter)


Now I do like Snape in HBP and DH,but every book before that? Nope. He definitely redeems himself and you understand what he did for Dumbledore and Harry was indeed very dangerous and admirable. However, he was still a bully. A big bully and that isn’t okay in my book. He went out of his way to humiliate Harry and take out his transgressions from James on Harry.

Yes, I cried when we see his pain over Lily’s death though. That was heartbreaking. And his Patronus? ❀



Chaol Westfall (Throne of Glass)


Ugh, I used to love Chaol in Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight. Though I never shipped him with Celaena, I still admired him and enjoyed him. However, after CoM I started to really hate him. He’s such a moody jerk and I can’t handle him sometimes.

Though I do love his loyalty to my baby Dorian ❀




Scarlet Benoit (The Lunar Chronicles)

scarletI don’t really think everyone likes her very much, but I thought she was a little too bland. Scarlet is actually my least favorite book in TLC too.






Adam Parrish (The Raven Cycle)

AdamEh, I just don’t get the appeal of him. I don’t hate him and even ship him with Ronan pretty hard, but he is my least favorite and his chapters were always the most dreaded. Sorry.






Aspen Leger (The Selection)

aspen Does anyone actually like Aspen? I know there are a lot of people who are actually #TeamAspen but I just don’t get it. He made me dislike him the second he made America enter the Selection and then get upset that she was actually there. Oh well.





Gale Hawthorne (The Hunger Games)

gale Gale is the Aspen of The Hunger Games and ugh I cannot stand him. Sorry, but Gale was annoying and too bloodthirsty for The Capitol. I promise it’s not because I am a hardcore Everlark shipper either! Though I am still baffled there even is a Team Gale. LOL





And… I can’t think of anyone else. So that’s a wrap!

please don’t hate me! 😦

Until next time,

      Yeah!! It’s so weird how I’ll be browsing good reads or tumblr and there are some hardcore Gale or Aspen shippers and I’m like whyyyyyyyy? I don’t get it! Haha
      Yeah I felt sorry for Scarlet too for what she went through but she still just felt so bland at times.

    I agree with Cress in a way. She’s definitely not my favorite character from the series but it was my favorite book. Still working on Winter but I understand why some people favor her. I’m still in denial that my baby Chaol is being annoying in the Throne of Glass books now.

    finally someone who doesn’t like chaol! it’s not that i can’t stand him, but he makes some really stupid decisions (AKA the end of CoM)
