Characters I Don’t Like But Everyone Else Seems To Love

Hey booknerds! So today I want to talk about characters that everyone seems to love but I just…don’t. Some I’m just indifferent about and some I really cannot stand…at all.

So I am going to share the ones that I really don’t understand why people love them. And they will go from ones that I am indifferent to, to the ones I hate most of all.

If I mention a character you love just remember this is my opinion and you have yours!

1 Warden from The Bone Season – I mean he’s kind of pointless aside from introducing Paige to the world of rephaites and also being her love interest. I also do not ship Paige and Warden and honestly don’t understand the appeal.

2 Dante from Legendary – He’s really good looking and mysterious…that’s about it? I didn’t understand why Tella would be so attracted to him especially when he gets in her way and distracts her more than helping her.

3 Dara from The City of Brass – He’s condescending, acts superior and prejudiced and I honestly don’t understand why people love him. He ignores what Nahri wants and makes a huge mess of things but I see a redemption arc coming for him so I hope he gets better.

4 Carden from The Cruel Prince – He is a bully and his relationship with Jude is toxic as hell. Why does everyone love him?!

5 Jace from The Mortal Instruments – I found him really annoying and was very disappointed in finding out that he is a Herondale. How can he be a descendant of Will?!

6 Clary from The Mortal Instruments – Another character from this series who was so irritating that I wanted to skip over her PoV chapters. Like please shut up, you’ve been a shadowhunter for 5 minutes, you do not know everything!

7 Rowan from Throne of Glass – He grew on me a little as we see more of him but he’s still very meh. I’m not a fan of macho alpha males.

8 Aelin from Throne of Glass – My dislike for her grew more and more as her story progresses. She becomes so annoying that I would just want to role my eyes reading her PoV.

9 Feyre from ACOTAR – I did not like her from the very beginning but then I struggled through most of the first book too. She gets worse as the story progresses. By ACOFAS I am so done with her nonsense.

10 Rhysand from ACOTAR – Let me say it loudly, he is problematic as hell and his and Feyre’s relationship is also very problematic and kinda toxic too. Why does everyone love him?! After ACOFAS I literally do not want to see or hear from either of these two again. Please for the love of God do not let them be in the spin off series.

It’s okay I will give you time to digest what you just read. I know, I know, how could I talk about your faves like that. It’s okay, you can still love them.

But if you also don’t like any of these characters, do let me know so that I don’t feel all alone!

And let me know what characters you don’t like but everyone else loves!

  1. Agree about Dara! But the more I think about his past, the more sorry I feel for him which has made me warm up to him more (that could change after I read KOC though lol) but I’ve never admired him the way half of the COB fandom does. I agree about Cardan too except I love the dynamic he and Jude have rather than me rooting for the two of them. I don’t understand the fandom’s obsession with him either except that I do find him interesting as a character.

    1. I do feel for him too but that doesn’t erase how he is especially towards nahri. He is condescending and judgemental and at the end completely disregards what she wants and causes the whole mess at the end.
      Yess i do like how jude and carden are with each other but do not think they should be together.
