Ten Characters I Just Didn't Click With


Hello lovelies. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today's topic is: Ten Characters You Just Didn't Click With. I love this topic because it's as negative as it gets between TTT topics and you know how much I love to make ' the worst' lists. *evil laugh*

In no particular order. 



Rachel Watson from The Girl on the Train



Tally Youngblood from Uglies


Kestrel Trajan from The Winner's Trilogy

  


Ella Daniels from The Secret series


Caymen Meyers from The Distance Between Us




Isla from Isla and the Happily Ever After




Hannah Nichols from Fall from India Place




Bianca Piper from The DUFF




Cas Lowood from Anna series

 

Amy Nelson from How to Ruin trilogy

  


Do you have any of these characters? What do you think about them? Share with me this and a link to your TTT in the comments. :)

  1. I couldn't connect with Tally either! I found her to just be impulsive, naive and overall not strong at all.

    1. Same here. Worst of all, all my issues with her just became worse and worse as the series progressed.

  2. Tally made my list too! I didn't find any of the characters in that novel particularly developed. It's very rare for me to read the first book in a series and then never continue on, because usually once I start, I need to know how it ends, but I had no desire to finish that series. I liked the themes, but not the execution.

    1. She's one of those characters that no one really seems to like. You were definitely luckier than me. For some unknown reason I read the first three books, but thankfully I wasn't stupid enough to pick up the fourth as well. I honestly don't see why it was necessary in the first place.

  3. I've only met Rachel from The Girl on the Train. I can't say I didn't like her exactly. I felt sorry for her more than anything else. She had been through so much--I could see how she ended up where she was. I had more of a problem with Anna. I REALLY didn't like her.

    1. I kinda felt sorry for her as well, still I couldn't connect to her on any levels. Her character was a huge disappointment for me because I expected very complex characters, like in Gone Girl. Anna was horrible as well, tbh I didn't like either one of the characters.

  4. We don't have any characters in common this week, but I can totally see why you didn't connect with Bianca! My TTT!

  5. I really couldn't relate to any of the characters in THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN.

    1. Me neither, they were all so horrible but this didn't win me over with their complexity, like the characters of Gone Girl.

  6. Isla is on my list too!! Which is such a shame, because I loved the first two books, but Isla was so whiny and clingy and GAH NOPE FOR ME. Here's my TTT!

    1. Same here! The third book was such a disappointment because of Isla. I couldn't relate to her, nor understand her at all.

  7. I liked Tally at first, but my opinion of her went downhill throughout the series.

    1. I kindaa liked her at first but in the second book I full on hated her. Same in the third.

  8. I have to say it's almost impossible to click with Rachel. She's just not someone you can relate to and the other book I've read was The Duff and I kinda clicked with Bianca but she wasn't my favourite; quite immature most of the time.

    1. One of my problems with Rachel was how she lacked of any kind of complexity. But maybe this was just me hating her for the way she was obsessed with her ex. It was so hard for me to relate to Bianca when she was judging her own friends. She wasn't a fully bad character, though.

  9. Your love of evil topics xD I remember I couldn't click with Tally either since she was kind of irritatingly bland. And FINALLY someone who couldn't click with Kestrel either! She was an interesting character I suppose but she was extremely impulsive when it came to her love for Arin? One second she hated him? And the next she was making ot with him? Plus, she betrayed her people way too easily for it to be credible.

    OK I'm gonna stop being negative lol great posts Veronika!

    1. :D Tally seems to irritate most people whose opinion I heard. And I agree, she was so bland and plain. Yay, I'm "glad" you aren't such a huge fan of Kestrel as everyone else! I seriously thought I was the only one who had a problems with her. It's not that I don't feel for her, but I definitely had a hard time forming any kind of a connection towards her. Both Arin and Kestrel annoyed me to no ends in the second book, I felt like they couldn't decide what they wanted. I felt really sorry for Kestrel, though.
      Thanks! <3

  10. This is a bit awkward because I loved Bianca and Caymen:) But then, I can see why you might not like them at the same time!

    I've only read Winner's Curse, but I have mixed feelings towards both Kestrel and Arin. But I've heard that they become better in the sequel, so let's see!

    1. Oh well, I do get why someone would like them. *awkward pause* Seriously, I'm surprised I didn't like either one of them because based off on the way ppl describe them they're my kind of characters. It's just... in the books they were less appealing than I expected.
      Hopefully, you'll end up loving them in the sequel, though I started to be annoyed with them in the second novel. :)

  11. Tally annoyed me so so much!! I didn't understand nor agree with literally any of her action. Kestrel is so intuitive and has such a sharp mind, she scares me a bit honestly. xD Caymen's sarcasm and dreariness made her hard to click with too, but I like her for the most part. Lovely list!

    1. Same about Tally, her character confused me all the freaking time, and not in a good way. Haha, Kestrel can really be scary but I do like her on some levels. Hopefully, I'll click with her in the final novel. Glad you liked Caymen. Thanks! :)
