Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten… Characters I Didn’t Click With


Top Ten TuesdayWelcome to Top Ten Tuesday – a weekly feature hosted by those lovely bookworms over at The Broke and the Bookish. Expect a new top ten list every week!


| Top Ten… Characters I Didn’t Click With |

This week’s Top Ten is about those irritating, needy, selfish characters that you really didn’t connect with. Included are novels and series I love, those I hate and those which just have incredibly annoying or frustrating characters. I found this Top Ten quite tough so (thanks to Lisa at Bookshelf Fantasies) have included character transformations where I  grew to love a character over the course of the novel and a few supporting/side characters to flesh it out.

Jonathon Payne & David Jones

Payne & Jones Series by Chris Kuzneski

I hated everything about this book. The characters were immature and badly written as was the narrative. Never again.
