TTT #1 - Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters Ever

Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they present a topic for a list.  This week's topic - Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters Ever!
  1. Bella Swan - Twilight:   This girl frustrated me so much in Twilight  that I only read half of New Moon.   I just couldn't finish them.
  2. Albus Dumbledore - Harry Potter  series:  Please don't get me wrong here.  This is one of my all time favorite series.  I cried like a baby during Half-Blood Prince.  But there were many times, even before finishing all seven books, that I wanted to smack Dumbledore.  
  3. Sookie Stackhouse - Sookie Stackhouse  series:  For someone who can read minds, she can be so damn clueless.
  4. Diana Bishop - A Discovery of Witches:  There were just so many things about this woman that annoyed me.  
  5. Eugenie Markham - Dark Swan  series:  I read this entire series, even though Eugenie continually got under my skin.  
  6. KiyoDark Swan  series:  He was such a little jerk.
  7. Anita Blake - Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter  series:  I still read every new book in this series, mainly hoping that Anita will get it together and start remembering that she didn't want nine bazillion men in her life.  The first several books were wonderful.  Every time they add another man to her harem, I die a little inside.
  8. AsherAnita Blake, Vampire Hunter  series:  Asher has been alive (or undead) for a very long time.  He needs to grow the hell up.
  9. Richard ZeemanAnita Blake, Vampire Hunter  series:  I don't even know what to say about Richard.  He's another jerk.
  10. Betsy Taylor - Undead  series:  It was a fun series when it started.  But it's become a chore to read these with Betsy's narcissistic self.  I made it halfway through the most recent one, and set it aside for other reads.
What about you?  Do we have any in common?  Did I miss any?


  1. I agree with quite a few of these, in fact, I agree for all of the ones I've read!

    Eugenie and Kiyo drove me completely bonkers! I ended up hating both of them in the last book.

    I adore Sookie, but I completely agree.

    Dumbledore...just grrr him! I never liked him. He kept too many important secrets that would have been super helpful.

    Bella...well obviously, but I love Twilight anyway. I just hated the way she treated everyone in all of the books. She just wouldn't say what she was actually thinking, and just manipulated everyone.

  2. I have no idea why I love Sookie because she can be so spacey lol. I blame Anna Paquin. Here's Ours

  3. Well I am so ok with your no.1, Bella is one of the most annoying characters ever.

  4. Eugenie! Grrr.... She was such a terrific and obnoxious heroine all rolled into a ball. Her choices and reasoning drove me bananas!!!

    Kiyo! Double Triple Quadruple GRRRRR! I loathe him. He remains one of my most hated literary characters! Which is a shame cause for the first half of book one I thought he was sexy. (Of course now my heart belongs to the one and only Dorian and his ropes of fun...).
