Most Unlikable Characters: 

While I really liked this book, I had very conflicting emotions about Lexie. There were moments where I really sympathized with her, then there were others where I absolutely couldn’t stand her! I was so torn. She definitely isn’t easily likable.

I am a huge Karin Slaughter fan, but Lena Adams from her Grant County series drives me insane! She’s one of those characters that I love to hate. Throughout these books, there were times where I wanted to scream at her and shake her hard. Anytime I started to feel sorry for her I immediately shook it off. She clearly got under my skin.

All four Plumb siblings in The Nest. I had heard tons of hype about this book so I was really excited to read it. It was a major letdown for me unfortunately. This family is so self entitled and self absorbed that I couldn’t find anything relatable about them. I disliked all of them.

I had heard great things about Denise Mina’s Alex Morrow series but I didn’t even bother continuing on after the first book. She’s angry and mean and just an all around mess. I generally like tortured female leads but this one missed the boat for me as I found I couldn’t sympathize with her.

I had high hopes for The Wicked Girls but it didn’t live up to my expectations. It was an ok read, but the character of Kirsty really annoyed me. I don’t wanna get into the why too much, but I feel like she was able to come off with her hands clean and it was undeserved.

What characters do you not like?

    Is it weird that I really enjoy books revolving around self-involved characters? It’s such an unusual taste of mine. I sometimes really enjoy books with characters that are unlikable. The Secret History by Donna Tartt, for example, has some horrible people as protagonists but it’s one of my favorites of all time. Might have to give the Nest a go soon. xD Great post!
