Top 5 Wednesdays: 5 Characters I wish I can drown

Its Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top 5 characters I wish I could drown. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the goodreads group and discover the creater of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…

Number 5- Tris from Divergent

I do like Tris as a character it’s just that at some points she can be really annoying so it’s not that I want to drown her just knock some sense into her. This especially comes in Allegiant when she still tries to save Caleb even though he has been plotting against her the entire series. I get that her ties to her family are strong but some people just aren’t worth saving in fact I would probably just drown Caleb to protect Tris.

Number 4- Victor Frankenstein from Frankenstein

To me you are also meant to like the protagonist but I just don’t. He creates the creature and neglects him and wonders why he is evil. Like father like son … 

Number 3- Umbridge from the Harry Potter series

While writing this post Umbridge can be seen on many of these posts and mine is not an exception. I am currently writing this wearing a Harry Potter shirt showing my love for Harry. She is evil; making Harry write in his own blood as well as having a weird obsession with cats. She also makes everyone’s life at Hogwarts torture. There’s nothing to like about her.

Number 2- Valentine from The Mortal Instruments series

As a villain we are expected to dislike them but Valentine just takes villain to a whole new level. (Spoilers ahead, if you have not read City of Glass stop reading now) Valentine pretends that Clary and Jace are siblings and in City of Glass it is revealed that he experiments on both his son and daughter and I believe he also kills a woman while doing so. It is fair to say Valentine has cemented on this list.

Number 1- Sutter Keely from the Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp

Image result for spectacular nowSutter Keely to me is to me automatically a dislikeable character, he is a senior in high school who has a non-caring attitude and is a borderline alcoholic at 18. It is when he finds Amie that you will think he will change but he just doesn’t. He is the same for the entire novel and I would happily slap him to knock some sense into to him because we do not need people like him in this world.

Who would be the characters that you would drown, leave your opinions in the comments below.

See you soon

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...
