Musing Mondays is a weekly Meme by Mizb @ Should Be ReadingLast Friday I put up my review for Uglies, and it got me to thinking about annoying characters. And I don't just mean those characters you love to hate, but the one's that you just find irritating, bothersome and sometimes just infuriating. So today, for my bookish rant, I thought I'd rant about some characters that have seriously annoyed me of late.
This weeks musing asks...Do you have a bookish rant? Share it with us!
Lets start with Shay from Uglies, since she is the inspiration for this rant. Surely I'm not the only person who found her annoying. At first, I thought she was alright - a good friend for Tally to have. But that quickly wore off. The tantrum she threw about Tally and David was so petty and juvenile, that anything she did after just bugged me.
Next, Sir Thomas from Newes from the Dead. This guy has stuck with me for a while, just because I found him so irritating. Being the closest thing to a bad guy in this novel, I get that we're not supposed to like him, but I think Hooper might have taken it a tad to far this time. Sir Thomas was sooo annoying I had to skip through any dialogue he had, I just couldn't read it.
Delaney from Fracture. I don't think Delaney actually did anything in this book. I don't remember her taking any action, besides thinking that hooking up with her crazy stalker was a good idea, which, if you've read this book, you know was a very, very bad idea.
Lastly, everyone in The Carrier of the Mark. Literally every single character in this novel annoyed me in some way or another. Only now looking back on the book do I realise how much they all annoyed me. Especially our leads Megan and Adam, who suffer from an extreme case of insta-love. Maybe these characters suffered with a complicated back story that required lots of info dumps and a convoluted plot, either way, I didn't like them.
Right I think that's enough ranting for one day. What about you? Are there any characters that really bother/annoy/irritate you?
