Top 5 Wednesday | Characters I Wish I Could Drown

So I decided to the Top 5 Wednesday tags that Ginger Read Lainy creates on youtube (booktube).

What this is (if you don’t know) is when there is a category (today’s is Characters I wish I could drown) and then you just pick five characters and why you wanna drown them. Self-explanatory really. But hey, you never know.

so I have a LOT of unpopular opinions. So we shall see how this goes.

this is in order to most hated (and I’m leaving out some – I definitely hate more than just these five characters).

NUMBER 5

Lara Jean from All the Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han.

description

Lara Jean. Lara Jean. Lara Jean. What a juvenile perspective. I just find her so childish. Like she belongs in a Disney Channel Original Movie. Everyone finds her and her family so cute, but I just don’t understand. Margo is like the worst older sister yet all her and her sisters want to do it please her and do everything she wants. Oh except that Lara Jean wants her boyfriend. that may be ok. ok. ugh. I can’t talk about it anymore.

NUMBER 4

Daemon Black from the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

description

Everyone loves him. I don’t. I don’t at all. His constant sex jokes take their toll and I don’t find them funny at all. And as I have said before, I hate the cocky, womanizing, devastatingly good-looking characters. Daemon is no exception. I just got so sick of this whole series.

NUMBER 3

Tate Collins from Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

description

I don’t even wanna talk about how much I hate her. It will just make me ranty. If you want, you can take a look at my review on goodreads, https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/964851500?book_show_action=false, and I have also posted it here on my blog. So if you care, go there. I can’t even talk about how much I hate her.

NUMBER 2

Professor Umbridge from the Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling

description

This Bitch. If you know, you know. If you don’t know? Go read Harry Potter. She is so much more terrible in the books than the movies. The movies make her seem tame. ugh she is terrible. I wouldn’t hesitate pushing her off a hypothetical bridge into a shark-infested lake. #sorrynotsorry

NUMBER 1

Jonathon “Black Jack” Randall from the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon.

description

Evil. Evil. Evil. I hate this man. I don’t wanna go into how terrible he is too much, since it is kind of spoilery territory, but I would drown him. I would drown him so hard. I can’t handle it with this guy.

Well I will end it with that. Sorry some of these were kind of vague. I can explain more in depth if need be. But I think most of them kind of speak for themselves. And as I said before, these are not the only characters I hate, these are just the ones I wanted to talk about today. And I’m sorry if these are you favorite characters, but they aren’t mine. We all love different things and the world goes on. 🙂

Peace out, Girl Scout.

Throne of Glass | Review

Uhm. This book.

Kick-ass heroine.

Handsome men.

Evil king.

Mysterious deaths.

tragic pasts.

Missing magic.

What else could you want from a book?? Throne of Glass had me hooked from the very first page. I absolutely love Celaena and she is without a doubt one of my most favorite book characters of all time (and i rarely like female characters – don’t hate me. I just don’t.) Celaena wasn’t whiny or needy and she’s definitely the opposite of dependent. Even though she was independent, she still knew when to accept help and when she needed to admit she was wrong. It’s interesting to me that her character is already so well developed. I like that because sometimes seeing character development is annoying – but she is already strong both mentally (for the most part) and physically. I loved her sense of humor and personality. And even though her character is already so developed, I can’t wait to read more books to see how her character grows even more.

Now Dorian and Chaol. At first I was on the fence and I really didn’t know who I was gonna like more, but as the book went on there as no doubt in my mind that Chaol was definitely number 1. He has the best demeanor and he isn’t cocky. LIke there is no comparison at all for me, as of right now. I kind of found Dorian annoying. I don’t like the obviously handsome, cocky, womanizing characters that so many seem to love. they’re actually kind of off-putting to me. I love Chaol’s subtlety. And though I could change my mind, I highly HIGHLY doubt it. Actually you know what? I won’t change my mind. I love Chaol. He’s perfect. Team Chaol. I can’t wait for more Chaol in Crown of Midnight. Ugh.

The love story between the three and the love triangle was actually very well done. props to you Sarah. There wasn’t such an obvious choice, and though she sort of acted on her feelings she didn’t dive in head first to love. It was subtle. It was kind of perfect. It was a more natural progression of someone developing feelings for more than one person, because she wasn’t instantly in love with one. because you know how it goes, “if you love two people and are torn between them then choose the second because it means you never really loved the first…” blah blah blah, something like that. I don’t really even know how else to describe it other than natural. You have to read it to understand what I mean.

I also really loved the story. I can tell that a lot of thought has been put into it and that a lot of things that happened in this book are gonna come back into play in later books. I have a feeling Nox’s story isn’t over yet and I’m very interested to see what this whole Elena thing means.

I hope I can read the next two books before the 4th comes out in September.

ALso. Is this becoming a movie?? because it should. It really really should.
