Top 5 Wednesday – Most Unlikable Characters

Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads Group and is hosted by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes

This weeks topic is Most Unlikeable Characers but not villains. Just a main or side character that is generally unlikeable without being mean or evil.

1. Celaena Sardothian from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas 

My number one shouldn’t come a surprise to anyone who knows me and knows how much I really like the story of this book but cannot stand the main character… She is one of the most selfish and arrogant characters ever. Plus, up to this point, she still hasn’t proven she’s good at much but intimidation so I’m still waiting, maybe she’ll make a comeback in the later books… But I’m not holding my breath.


2. Laia from An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. 

She was really whiny and even though she was accomplishing a lot of things she didn’t think she could throughout the book, she never really grew as a character. I’m on the fence about the sequel, I kind of want to know what happens but I’ll probably wait until a few people review it before I decide.


3. Beck from You by Caroline Kepnes. 

Beck is the complete opposite of me and the type of girl I want to smack in the head for not paying more attention to her surroundings. As much as the main character of this book makes me cringe, it’s even worse when I read the things that should have been such huge red flags for her. I mean, even just the simple task of turning off the phone she lost might have been so helpful but she’s just an idiot… Ugh, just 😡 


4. Clary Fray from City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.

What a pitiful excuse for a heroine, I get that she is thrown into this world that she doesn’t know and has to learn all this stuff in order to stay alive. As the series goes on, she gets more and more desperate and insecure. I just never connected to her.


5. Simon Lewis from City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

While we’re on the subject, I’m not a fan so Simon either for similar reasons. I never really understood why he was necessary other than needing a love triangle.


What are some characters you find unlikeable? Let me down below or post a link to your post if you’ve done Top 5 Wednesday this week also!
Thanks for reading 💜

Until next time, bye!

  1. Totally agree with you about Clary- I really went off her as the series progressed. And I was never hugely fond of Simon. I do like Celaena, cos I reckon her arrogance is sort of justified, especially as the series goes on- but I get that she’s not everyone’s cup of tea

  2. I agree on Clary and Simon (still trying to finish City of Bones) and also on Beck. I recently DNF You by Caroline Kepnes because I feel like Beck doesn’t deserve to be stalk (not that it’s a good thing, it’s not)…
