Ten Characters I Just Didn’t Click With

Posted September 1, 2015 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Top Ten Tuesday / 57 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
This week it is about characters we didn’t click with. Sometimes that can ruin a book sometimes it doesn’t matter. Sometimes I want to throw a book. It happens.


  • Kim from Don’t Get Me Wrong : She was so whiny and threw tantrums. GROW UP.
  • EVERYONE in Anne & Henry : I wanted to punch them all in the face.
  • Veronika in Last Anniversary : The most obnoxious character I had read in a long time.
  • Gene from Rosie Project : Total sleaze.
  • Darcy from Something Borrowed : How does she have friends??
  • Colin An Abundance of Catherines : I usually like John Green characters but Colin made this book almost unbearable for me.
  • Sloan Those Secrets We Keep : I think what bothered me here was she thought she was better than she was and in turn better than her friend. She was pretty bad just in a different way.
  • Scarlet from Scarlet: Nothing wrong with her just didn’t love like I did with Cinder.
  • Cheryl from Wild: This is hard because she is a real person but I had a hard time connecting with her.
  • Kelsey from Finding It : I don’t DNF books usually. I couldn’t stand her and had to DNF.

  1. Yes to Cheryl!! I wanted to like the book I really did but I ended up DNFing it when she starts fantasizing about her mother’s male nurse in her dying mother’s hospital room. I’ve finally had to admit that Cheryl and I just don’t get a long. And I’ve wondered the same thing about Darcy from Something Borrowed. She’s just awful. Great list!

  2. I completely forgot about the Rosie Project! I completely agree with Gene, but i actually also did not like Rosie.
    I do love when people include extremely loved books and honestly share what they did not like about the. So i really enjoyed that you included Scarlet and a john Green book, instead of not sharing different thoughts about those books 🙂
    Great list 🙂

  3. Hahaha! I 100% agree with your comment on the characters in Anne & Henry! They were so annoying!
    Awww! You didn’t like Scarlet as much as Cinder? It was the opposite for me. I thought about not continuing the series because I didn’t love Cinder as much as everyone else does.
    And I heard Kelsey was a difficult character to enjoy which is why I never picked up the book despite enjoying the series.

  4. I ALMOST put Darcy on my list for Something Blue. Even though that book is about her, and we’re supposed to have a big change of heart and root for her, I just couldn’t. And same w/ Scarlet. I love that series, but Scarlet was my least favorite book because I just didn’t like her as much as the other characters. Bummer about Anne & Henry… I had high hopes for that book 🙁

    Thanks for stopping by my list 🙂

    • Darcy was definitely better in her book but still. I just started Cress so I will see how I feel but Scarlett just wasn’t as good as Cinder for me (character wise). I know people really liked Anne & Henry so it could just be me!
