Welcome to another Top 5 Wednesday! Today’s topic is the top five most frustrating characters. We all have them and I do, too.
5. Jace from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.
I wanted to slap him for just being so…stupid throughout the first three books! He acts like a tough guy and shoves people away, but what he really needs are his friends and to just let people in.
4. Chaol from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas.
I love Chaol, don’t get me wrong, but MAN was he annoying and so frustrating in “Heir of Fire.” Like, seriously!? Let go of that loyalty toward a king you KNOW can’t be trusted and just love your friends! Urghhhh, he made me so mad.
3. Tris by the Divergent series by Veronica Roth.
Okay, this was mostly through “Allegiant” when she became frustrating, but really, she always had to be the hero and try to figure everything out and sacrifice herself… It got annoying. I just wished she’d trust her friends more, really.
2. America from the Selection series by Kiera Cass.
Like, what were you even doing, America? I love you to death, BUT YOU WERE SUCH AN IDIOT IN “The Elite.” Like, seriously!? Why would you try to jeopardize SO MUCH!? Arghhhh, she really got under my skin in the second book.
1. Umbridge from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.
Okay, I’m cheating here because I haven’t actually read the book where Umbridge makes her appearance. But GOD DO I HATE THIS WOMAN. She is the most frustrating, manipulative, deceitful, vindictive character! She’s worse than Voldemort! Ugh, I really don’t like her or the way she treats anyone.
What are your top five most frustrating characters? I know we can’t list them all, because there’s WAY too many, but I think five’s a good number. Let me know!
