Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters Ever
- Ever from Evermore by Alyson Noel. She remains frustratingly shallow to the bitter end.
- Quincie from Tantalize & Miranda from Eternal both by Cynthia Leitich-Smith. See #1. Please, the world needs no more self-centered ya heroines.
- Winona from True Colors by Kristin Hannah. Whiny, bitchy, jealous and terribly insecure and she doesn't grow out of it.
- Raven from Dark Prince by Christine Feehan. She wins the prize for most frustratingly naive and pliable heroine I've read in recent years. Whenever she showed a little backbone Mr. Dark Prince convinced her she was wrong and his way was the only way.
- Nicholas Van Tassle from All He Ever Wanted by Anita Shreve. Frustratingly pompous, insecure, prissy, jealous and judgmental. I read pages and pages hoping he'd change and learn something but NO.
- Anita Blake from the later installments in Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series. I know this is a no brainer. The earlier Anita was a tough, monster-slaying, self-sufficient woman with a snarky attitude. She could say NO to the sexy beasts who attempted to woo her. Sadly she morphed into a sex-starved, power hungry, unlikable beeyatch as the series goes on. Oh and she lost her dark sense of humor somewhere along the line too.
- Kendra from Capture the Rainbow by Iris Johansen. She is a grown woman just too stupidly naive to breathe.
- Hope from Wolfe's Hope by Laura Leigh. Wolfe treats her like crapola and her vagina weeps for him anyway.
- Sophie from Fire and Ice by Julie Garwood. Her character is frustratingly inconsistent. She fakes being materialistic and shallow? Why on earth would you?
- Wyatt & Adele from A Healer's Bond by Raelynn Blue. She's an ER nurse but acts like a silly sex starved woman and she's mean, more black-hearted than myself, even. He frustrated me with his undying devotion to such an ugly-inside person. Why, man, why? There are many women who would love you, enormous sword or no.
