T5W #11: Unlikable Characters

118368Top 5 Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ ThoughtsOnTomes on YouTube. New topics are set for every week so to join in on the fun just check out our goodreads group. This weeks topic is Most Unlikable Characters! Not villains, just main characters that are unlikable.

Before I begin I just want to state that all the opinions I have on these books/characters are my own so don’t be mad at me if I say I don’t like one of your favorite characters.

Mare Barrow (Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard)


I honestly don’t know why I just lost all love for this character, I mean Red Queen Mare was awesome but Glass Sword Mare just lost me. Anyone one can betray anyone, yes girl we heard you the first 5000 times you said it.

Elizabeth Grey (The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker)


Elizabeth… Where to even start. I mean so what if your boss turns out to be an evil, lying, two-faced son of a biatch, that doesn’t justify the incessant whining. I’m just kidding, I mainly didn’t like this character because she’s one of the blandest characters I’ve encountered, constantly relying on the supporting characters.

Midnight (Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke)


Dude just needed to learn to keep it in his pants. This book would have been half its length if Midnight just kept his pants zipped, jeez.

Greg Gaines (Me Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews)


This is one of those over-hyed books I just didn’t get. I feel like I was missing something the whole time reading this book because when I was done I didn’t feel particularly moved. The whole time I was reading this, I just felt like Greg Gaines was kind of a jerk (I don’t know if that was the whole point of the book, I just didn’t get it)

Isla (Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins)


Don’t kill me! In my opinion Isla was the worst out of the three girls in this series (Anne/Lola). Constantly whining about Josh. The was she obsessively crushing on this guy was in no way cute, it was just wierd.

So yeah thats my T5W for this week! Happy Reading!

  1. I actually just finished Glass Sword today (review coming soon!), and I’m not sure what to think of it. After reading Red Queen, Mare seemed like a strong warrior, and she became awfully weak. I pitied her several times throughout the novel, and she definitely has morphed into, well, something else. The book left me in shock, but I’m still excited for King’s Cage to see what happens next. Great post!
