Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten Theme and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.
There are some characters which I just … URGH. And there are some (very strange) people who actually like these characters that I URGH! (How dare they!)
In all the reviews for this book I’ve read so far everyone was all about the sympathy for Mercedes. (crazy people!) For me she made WAY too many bad choices, I just couldn’t connect with her. I think I tolerated her more than I liked her.
Never Always Sometimes
Oh no, she annoyed me and anyone who liked her is totally bonkers! She basically played Dave the entire time. Not worth my love, but apparently worth the love of many people who write reviews on Goodreads! (you are all WRONG!)
What You Left Behind
This is probably the only one on today’s list that I feel bad about as they were put in a totally impossible position (teenage pregnancy, pregnant teen gets cancer, baby is born, teen mum dies, teen dad has to raise baby all by himself. You know the story, right?!). But I didn’t agree with the way either of them dealt with it, nor any of their choices and all the reviews I’ve read are all full of love and sympathy for this couple and I’m screaming at my PC screen like “They don’t deserve your love!!!”
The Young Elites
Adelina … (grrrr) … the reason I am missing out on a Marie Lu book (because I don;t want to read a book with her in it. I’ve read reviews in which people compared her to Katniss and Tris and label her as another YA heroine. ARE YOU CRAZY?! She is totally crazy and evil! We should not be liking her!!!
It Ain’t Me Babe . Heart Recaptured . Souls Unfractured
Tillie is beautifully talented at writing damaged characters that we can’t help but love, but I really haven’t found any love for Cain yet. Tillie fans are all over the swooning for this dark and damaged man, but I’m not feeling it. Being a psychopath is not sexy, sorry guys! Maybe with the release of the next book which is from his POV will turn me, but for right now I just don’t.
Ok, so I may have only read the first 30% of this book, but still I would have expected to have liked the MC by now. I found him frustrating, annoying and stupid. People actually liked this guy? He becomes one of the four horsemen and treats the whole thing like it’s a joke! … Maybe I should read the rest of the book?
