Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten list and everyone is welcome to join. This week’s theme is “Ten Characters You Just Didn’t Click With”. This was a hard list for me. I had to go through my Goodreads lists to see which books I gave lower ratings. And still only came up with 3.
Cathy and Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
I tried to read this book in high school and hated it the entire time. Cathy and Heathcliff are just terrible people. Not a fan.
Johnny Jefferson from Baby Be Mine by Paige Toon
I randomly downloaded and read this book one night. It realized too late that it was a sequel and that you really need read the first book. I made a mistake by trying to stick it out through the book. Johnny was a stereotypical, horrible rock star and the heroine wasn’t much better.
Emma Woodhouse from Emma by Jane Austen
When I first read Emma a few years ago, I really wasn’t a fan of the heroine, which had surprised me because I really liked Jane Austen’s other works, especially Persuasion. I recently watched the YouTube adaptation of Emma, Emma Approved, and found the main character a lot more likable and relatable. Maybe I’ll reread the book and form new opinions about Emma.
