Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters Ever

Oohhh, I struggled with this topic so much and after all of that… I still only came up with 6! But these six I could rant on and on about forever 😉

Undeadly by Michele Vail1. Molly from Undeadly: Oh. my. gosh. This girl freakin drove me nuts. She is so dumb… everything that she does has absolutely no common sense behind it.  The entire fact that she kept trying to save her “boyfriend” even though it was very clear that their was something drastically wrong with him  was insane to me! And just some of her actions… they were running from “trouble”(I won’t say what to avoid spoilers) and she stopped to reflect in the effin mirror! When I think about this book that part stick outs the most in mind because I just gaped at that line in awe, really? You stop to LOOK AT YOURSELF?! Eeps.

Cursed by Jennifer L. Armentrout2. Ember from Cursed:  Ember was so damn whiney I wanted to strange her 99% of the time.  She distrusted every single person that she came into contact with except, conveniently, the people that she shouldn’t trust.  Because she was so distrustful and complained so much, I couldn’t stand her. Honestly her character kind of ruined the book for me. Bleh.

  

Blind Spot by Laura Ellen

3. Roz from Blind Spot: If there was ever a character I would actually strangle it would be Roz. She is quite possibly the most oblivious human being I have ever read about. The annoying and frustrating shit she does in this book was one half of the reason why the book was ruined for me(the other half was that STUPID ending). I hate contradictory characters and Roz took the cake for that award, that’s for sure. She spent half her time being pissed off because she didn’t want special treatment or to be in the special education class but when that same teacher treats her like a regular student she whines about that too. Not to mention that she acts like a carpet for that moron boyfriend Jonathan to wipe his feet on, while this wonderful chap, Greg wants her like nothing else in this world. Oh, and let’s not forget about the super intelligent stunts she gets involved in, like “faking” a fire to steal stuff from her teacher? She is absolutely the most frustrating character…

Fallen by Lauren Kate4. Luce from Fallen: Unlike the other characters so far, I didn’t entirely dislike Luce I was just so frustrated with her inability to make up her mind with which guy she liked better Cam or Daniel. Ah well, I suppose that is the point of the love triangle but never the less she still frustrated the hell out of me. She also wasn’t a super strong or confident character and that annoyed me.

Before I Fall5. Samantha from Before I Fall: To put it frankly, this girl was a bitch. And she kept being a bitch the million times she woke up, she only just started to get the picture after waking up what, 4 times later? (I can’t entirely remember because I read this a while ago and didn’t write a review because it made me so angry, lol). Her actions towards other people were horrendous and I was just so frustrated that she wasn’t getting the idea day, after day.

Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian6. Lillia from Burn for Burn:  The fact that this girl knew right from wrong and still kept doing the wrong thing almost made me stop reading the book. I think she had the potential to be a nice person but she was so concerned with keeping up appearances. She was so passive and easily swayed and I couldn’t stand that.

Well that turned into a mini meltdown on my part, haha. One thing I learned from this weeks topic: I cannot spell frustrated. Thank goodness for spell check 😉

What are your picks?

Happy Reading!

    Interesting list! I’ve read both Before I Fall and Burn for Burn, but those characters didn’t frustrate me lol. I suppose I like bitchier characters, though for reasons I’m not going to explain. I could see how they would annoy someone though, and I’ve definitely seen both of them appear on other lists today.

      I like bitchy characters normally as well but more of the witty, sarcastic ones not the catty, dramatic ones 😛 I have def seen the Burn for Burn girls on some lists!

      I wanted to love Ember… it was actually her depiction on the front that made me pick up the book! I guess it’s not technically “ruined” because it was a 3 star read for me… but she absolutely played a part in the reason for the 3 stars, lol. I was really ranting in this post I realized haha.

      OMG! Megan I seriously thought I was the only one… I was really excited about it and it just fell totally flat for me. And I would say a lot of that is chalked up by the characters :/
