Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl to bring bookish friends together. A new topic is posted each week.
Well, disliked is a strong word, but these books were three stars or less out of six. Give me some slack, it’s a hard list to make because most books I dislike is exactly because of the characters.
Wax and Marasi from Shadows of Self by Brandon Sanderson (look, they’re on the cover!). Wax and Wayne is an awesome team, but Wax brings the casual genius plans and humor.
The whole gang – Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam – in The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. I have a thing for group dynamics, especially when they are so different characters as these.
Julep Dupree from Trust Me, I’m Lying by Mary Elizabeth Summer. Less than average plot, good female main character who’s a con artist and doesn’t stop lying.
Julian from Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare. I feel for him, I feel like him, I would read the books solely for him if he didn’t become a smaller and smaller part of them.
Margo from Paper Towns by John Green. The main character was average, Margo was much better. Probably not the best person, but a good character.
Percy from House of Hades by Rick Riordan. Especially from that book because I didn’t like it, but he’s been great through most of the series, until he fell into hell or whatever and changed. Then it all went downhill.
House of Hades was actually my favourite Heroes of Olympus book (and I also loved The Dream Thieves). Still to each their own!
