Welcome to another Top 5 Wednesday, as hosted by the lovely gingerreadslainey over on YouTube. Today’s topic is all about the characters you wish you could drown. We all have these characters, the ones that frustrate you to no end and have little in the way of the story and plot and everything. Yeah, those characters. So here’s my short list:
5. The King from The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas
Does this king even have a name? I don’t know, but he’s Dorian’s father and he’s just really mean and heartless and cruel, and after the end of the third book I really, really don’t like him and wouldn’t mind sticking his head in something and… yeah…
4. Adam from The Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi
He was really nice and stuff in the first book, a really whiny baby in the second book, and a GIGANTIC JERK in the third. So yeah, I wouldn’t mind drowning him for the way he treated Juliette in the third book (I have a mini-rant in my review if you want to check it out).
3. Tris from the Divergent series by Veronica Roth
Okay, I had to really think long and hard about this one. I don’t hate Tris’s character so much as hate the decisions she made in the long run. Many times she was an awesome, strong female character, but toward the end she just kind of became really frustrating and made a lot of stupid decisions that weren’t so much “sacrifices” as they were stupid decisions.
2. Joffery from the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin
Okay, I haven’t read far enough I don’t think to see him reign horribly in the books, but in the show? OMG I HATE HIM. Actually, no, he is just as horrible in the book early on. So yeah, I really, really want to have the pleasure of drowning him.
1. Eadlyn Schreave from The Heir by Kiera Cass
Oh my gosh, she’s such a freakin’ brat. And so clueless as to how to treat people. Like, was she not socialized as the next ruler of a country? I just… I don’t understand how she can be so… UGH. She’s just so frustrating. SO. FRUSTRATING. I wouldn’t mind seeing her suffer a little…
Who are some of the characters you wish you could drown? Don’t worry, it’s all non-canon here. (maybe) Let me know!
