Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters Ever
Putting together this list was quite interesting. As it turns out, a good chunk of my most frustrating characters are from some of my favorite books out there. Crazy! In no particular order, my most frustrating characters are...
Ash (Black City by Elizabeth Richards) - The most frustrating thing about Ash was that he refused to embrace his Darkling side. He just had too many human emotions, therefore making him a weak character. At the end of the book, he did grow some balls...thank goodness!
Mara Dyer (The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin) - I was unable to finish this novel because of Mara's character. She was just too whiny and annoying for my liking...I don't understand how Noah put up with her.
Katniss (The Hunger Game series by Suzanne Collins) - I'm not quite sure what it was about her, but she just got on my nerves quite a bit throughout the series. This series is one of my favorites...only because of Peeta!
Megan Chase (The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa) - This is another series that I really enjoyed and stuck with because of Ash! The thing that bothered me the most with Megan was the fact that she is a damsel in distress, always needing someone to save her. I really wanted to see her fight some of her own battles without the help of other characters. Along with being a wimp, I found her to be rather whiny at times.
Ruby (The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken) - Again another novel that I really enjoyed. The most frustrating thing about Ruby was that it took her practically the whole book to finally accept who she is and what she can do. The fact that she couldn't quite complaining or fathom embracing her powers really got on my nerves.
Addison (My Soul to Save by Rachel Vincent) - Addison was a very annoying side character that I absolutely couldn't stand. She was ungrateful and such a brat. I don't understand why Nick and Kaylee would even risk their lives for that girl.
Mary (Burn for Burn by Jenny Han) - Each character in this novel had some reason to want revenge on someone. When I found out Mary's reason for wanting to get back at someone, I ended up losing all interest in her character and really just wanted to tell her to get over it. I don't want to spoil anything for those who may not have read it yet, but I just can't justify holding on to a grudge like that for so long.
