Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Most Frustrating Characters & Authors Ever

Wow, I haven't done a Top Ten Tuesday since the middle of December? That's crazy. Okay, I changed up this week's topic a little from The Broke & The Bookish, since I couldn't think of 10 characters. I decided to do 5 characters and 5 authors that frustrate me. :)

5 Characters:
1. Draco Malfoy & Severus Snape in Harry Potter. (I probably could have done a Top10 just on Harry Potter characters actually.) Malfoy because he had the ability and the opportunity to be good and decent, but because of his upbringing, he wasn't. Or couldn't. And Snape because he never got to be happy. :(

2. Bella Swan in Twilight. I don't really have to explain this one, do I? ;) Whiny, weak, clinging. Ugh.

3. Zoey in House of Night. Her hypocritical attitude towards Aphrodite when she has approximately 5 boyfriends (so far) is just annoying. And her "bull-poopy" and other language "quirks". Although maybe this one should go under frustrating authors lol.

4. Anne of Green Gables. Just forgive Gilbert already!! :) Okay, I know she did eventually, but too much time was wasted. Bah.

5. Rose in Vampire Academy. The thing about Rose is she had the potential to be this strong, hardworking, female positive character. In the beginning. Then she just turned into another Bella almost (not nearly as bad though).

5 Authors:
1. Haruki Murakami ...okay, granted I've only read 1Q84 so far but why are you so confusing Haruki?? And I still need answers!!

2. John Steinbeck ...how can you do amazing, wonderful, fabulous books like Cannery Row & Of Mice & Men, and then give me The Pearl & The Red Pony?? I want allllll his books to be like the first two. God, I'm so selfish. ;)

3. JK Rowling ...um, this is easy: MOAR HARRY POTTER PLEEZ!!1!!!1 Or pre-HP. Or post-HP. I don't care, more wizarding universe!

4. Ann Brashares for the final Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants book.

5. Ann M Martin for Baby-Sitters Club...why can't these girls age any?? Why can't Kristy just be with Shannon already? Why did Mimi have to die? Why is Jackie Rodowsky such a klutz? Is it an inner-ear thing? Why are all the dads in Stoneybrook lawyers? When does the BSC meet and how was it started? Hah, just kidding, I totally know. :)


  1. I love your comment about J.K. Rowling. I totally agree with number 1. I love the picture you shared too.

    Anne of Green Gables drove me batty too. And don't get me started on Bella. Thanks for sharing.

    Here's mine

  2. Are you cray cray? Snape is THE BEST. He was the reason I read those books lol. I mean, yes I was hoping he'd defeat Harry and Voldemort and reign supreme, but we can't always get what we want I guess lol. Thanks for stopping by our list!

    1. Oh I agree, Snape is in my top 5 for sure! :) But I just wish he'd had some happiness or maybe not been so bitter and mean to Harry and Neville. Although it wouldn't have been as good a story then right? Lol...
