Top Ten Tuesday: Liked Characters in Disliked Books?

Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is one that I’ve had to think about quite a bit. After scrolling through my Goodreads shelves and pondering all of the books I’ve read recently, I realized that I just couldn’t make a list of ten books I disliked with characters that I did like. I love reading books that are character-driven rather than plot-driven, which means that the reason I usually dislike a book is because I dislike the characters it contains. Because of this connection between liking a book and liking its characters, I thought I’d put a little twist on this week’s topic. Instead, I’ll be sharing ten books I disliked because of the characters. 

What are some characters you’ve liked in books that you otherwise could do without? What do you think of the books I’ve mentioned? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. Oh no I’m so sorry to hear you didn’t love the characters in an Ember in the Ashes, I really liked that first book :/ I get why the characters in the summer I turned pretty could annoy you, though, haha 🙂 lovely post 🙂

  2. I relate so much with you about this topic, I couldn’t think about any books either because the characters are so important… Maybe just Maven from Red Queen? I disliked the book, but I liked him quite a lot because he was the only interesting character for me.
    I feel like I’ve heard so many mixed things about An Ember in the Ashes that I’m not sure if I’ll ever end up reading the book 😒
    Great post! ❤
