Ten Characters Everyone Loves But I Just Don’t Get or Ten Characters I LOVE But Others Seem To Dislike.
This week is actually going to be a TOP
Five Six Seven Eight. Tuesday, because I can’t think of more than 8 characters that Everyone Loves But I Just Don’t Get. Let’s get started!
1.) Adrian Ivashkov – Vampire Academy and Bloodlines Series by Richelle Mead.
What can I say? I am SO disappointed in what became of Adrian Ivashkov.
I grew to love him during the Vampire Academy series. He was a witty mess, and I
just loved him. Then when he came back in the Bloodlines series, he was just a
plain ol’ mess! WHAT HAPPENED!? He was always needy, but not to this extreme!
He went from being funny and charming, to being a straight up DRAG! I had
such high hopes for Adrian, but in the end he just broke my heart…WHY!!?
2.) Draco Malfoy – Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling.
I thought I could love him, but he turned out to be a spineless
creep. He talked a big game, for all of these years (well except
when he was crying for his daddy), and in the end, he was just a big loser.
3.) Gale Hawthorne – The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins.
Gale just plain ass sucked! He was nothing but a scallywag! I
don’t get what everyone seeing in his loser self. Everyone wanted
to act like he was all big and great, but I’m pretty sure he is the reason
Prime is dead. He couldn’t even face what he did, so he just ran away
like a biggity bitch! Bye Gale! It was nice knowing you…SYKE!
4.) Edward Cullen – Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer.
Did he even talk? Why did everyone love Twilight so much?
There is nothing cool about a sparkling vampire…Was really necessary?
it was just chock full of nonsense, and I’m sad that I wasted my time
watching that first freak show.
5.) Peter Kavinsky – P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han.
I couldn’t stand him! What does everyone love him so much!
I feel like he wants to have his cake, and eat it too…Not happening bro.
What is so appealing about Peter? The only thing you are going to get from
him is a “Second Best” trophy, while he’s prancing around, doing who
knows what, with his ex! Why couldn’t she just pick John Ambrose!?
WAIT! I just thought of another one!
6.) St. Clair – Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.
Now this one with all my heart, I truly don’t understand why people
love him so much…HE IS SO ANNOYING, and VERY clingy! He’s another
one of these “bad boy” teenage boys, who thinks he can have whatever
he wants. He can take his time, and be with who he wants to be with at
any moment. He is too cool for school. 🙄 Once he is actually with
Anna, in Lola and The Boy Next Door, it’s like he is any extra limb on Anna’s
body. Where ever she goes he goes. Even when she is at WORK, it’s
not a surprise if he is right there in her face the whole time. JESUS! Give
both Anna and us a break sir!
7.) Holden Caulfield – The Catcher in The Rye by J.D. Salinger.
I had to read this book back in high school, and I don’t know if it was
just my high school brain, leading me to this discussion, but I can not stand
Holden! Who are you sir? He walked around like his sh*t didn’t stink, he whined
WAY TOO MUCH, and I just wanted to pull my hair out while reading this book!
Walking around calling people phonies. He is the biggest phony EVER!
8.) Bella Swan – Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer.
I don’t know why she didn’t even cross my mind when I was venting
about Edward! Bella is one of the most pathetic characters I have EVER
come across! She had no back bone! Edward left her ass, and she sat there
like a buffoon for months, while he was out doing whatever it was he was doing.
Get with it girl! For some reason she wanted the wrong guy… 🙄 Why would
you want to be with that Monstrosity that is Edward Cullen…WHY!?
Do you agree with my choices?
Let me know down in the comments! 😀

I kinda agree with you about gale because in the end he just vanished he didn’t even say goodbye to katniss I actually cried thinking about what he had done to prim and how he left but before that I really liked him a lot!
I doubt anybody likes Draco love would be a far fetched emotion. Pity most probably..:P
I’ve never cared for Draco, either.
I totally agree with Peter. I like him as a character but not if he was a real person you know? And I love Draco but in a great character development kind of way haha! Nice list!!
I really didn’t like Peter either. That book in general just pissed me off and he was another component I could get mad at.
Hahaha, great choices! Draco just annoyed me, and don’t make me START on Gale, he was kind of useless and, ugh, I couldn’t stand him.
Ewww I totally forgot about Holden Caufield!!! I definitely did NOT click with or understand him at ALL!! He was so spineless, BLAH! Also I totally feel you with Anna and St. Clair in the Lola book. He was so clingy and they were so annoying- we have to be together 24/7 couple. I was Team Peeta, so the only thing I was feeling about Gale was that MOVIE Gale was a hottie 🙂
😀 😀 😀 😀
Haha Draco was a crybaby loser! And I’ve always disliked Bella as well. I enjoy Twilight, but I never understood why she had no backbone at all.
St. Clair was super overrated. The book too, it wasn’t a great thing. I do not know why everyone was crazy about it.
I completely agree with Draco and basically ALL of the characters from Twilight 😉 My TTT
YES for Edward! I’m happy to see he’s not just on my list.
[/holds up fan sign for Holden]
YES for that Gale nomination. I keep forgetting people were actually rooting for him. While, I didn’t hate him per se, he did piss me off 90% of the time with his weird entitlement issues.
Love the list and agree with most of them!!!
Agreed. Especially about the Twilight character and, of course, Draco. I can appreciate the changes he made as an adult but he really shouldn’t be given any kind of reward for attempting to be a decent human. lol.
I haven’t read all of these but I’m pretty much nodding along with all the others. Don’t know how come I didn’t think of Gale!
Edward and Bella – stalking vampire meets emo girl! Too much sulkiness going on for my liking.
I’m so glad I never had to read Catcher in the Rye. No one seems to like Holden Caulfield! lol
Great list! I totally agree with everyone on your list. Thank for stopping by our blog.
I agree with Draco! The love for him is always baffling to me. Adrian made my list this week, too! Though, he made it for a different series than he did for you :p I never made it to Bloodlines cause I didn’t like him in VA enough to care :p
Oh, I didn’t like Anna and the french kiss at all but I totally hated St. Clair! What an annoying character! Great list!
I totally agree with you when it comes to Draco. He was just a little boy trying to play a big man’s game and I really can’t understand why some people love him.
Yes to Bella and Edward! I don’t know why I didn’t put them on my list (unless its that I forgot for a moment that they existed!)
Totally agree with the Twilight characters. And I don’t get all the Draco love either. I sometimes wonder if it’s more Tom Felton than Draco, because Draco was not very likable at all.
Yep, I think more people love him because they think Tom Felton is hot…
I’m LOLing to your comments about Gale. I liked him in the first book (when I stopped being confused that his name was associated with a male), but after that first book I got annoyed when he was in the picture. I just wanted him out of the way so Peeta and Katniss could be together. #GoAwayGale
Bella and Edward are both pretty awful when I think about them, but for whatever reason (seriously, I can’t figure it out) I do really like those books
I tried to get into Anna and the French kiss but really couldn’t, I guess YA contemporary is not for me. I agree with twilight and I didn’t like Adrian in The Vampire Academy and I’ve only read a couple of books in the Bloodlines series, so we’ll see if I change my opinion on him.
If you already don’t like Adrian, reading Bloodlines won’t help it. I loved him in VA but he totally changed for the worse in Bloodlines, so I wouldn’t waste my time if I were you. 😦
Most of the cast of the Hunger Games annoys me. Great list! Thanks for stopping by my TTT.
Gale was on my list this week too.

Thank you for putting Edward and Bella on here! I just never got it. When I was doing my list, I couldn’t make a decision on where Gale landed for me. Great list! 🙂
You have so much enthusiasm in your post! I love it! I do love Peter, but I understand why people don’t like him. John Ambrose is an angel. I love him so much. ❤ Gale….UGH! I KNOW he's the reason for Prim's death. Great list Giovanna. 🙂 Here is my TTT if you want to check it out!
Totally agree with what you said about Gale. I was all for Peeta!
Team ❤ Peeta ❤ All Day, Every Day! 😀
Great list! Bella would’ve made it onto my list as well. She drove me insane. Shoot, most of the characters in that series drove me up the wall.
Why didn’t I think of Draco! You are so right about him!
As you know, we both have Gale on our lists 🙂 I can’t believe I didn’t think of Edward or Draco!
I agree with Draco, Gale, Holden, and Bella.
Draco was just pathetic by the end of the series, Gale was just there, Holden did nothing but complain about everything and everyone, and Bella was way too dependent on Edward. Great list!
