Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
The topic for this week is: Top Ten Worlds I’d Never Want To Live In OR Characters I’d Never Want To Trade Places With
Going with the second option – as much as I adore certain characters there is no way I would EVER want to live their lives. I’m not sure I’d handle it anywhere near as well as they do.
These characters are all amazing. They are kick-arse and manage to keep their principles throughout all they have to face. I’m not anywhere near as brave as any of them nor do I have any desire to switch places. They’ve all been though so much and I’m not sure I’d last a day in their shoes.
- Penryn from the Penryn and the End of Days series by Susan Ee
- Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
- Tris Prior from the Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth
- Yukiko from The Lotus War series by Jay Kristoff
- Paige from The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
These are characters that I remember reading about and getting quite emotional. I would never be able to go though what they did without having an emotional breakdown – or seven. Just reading about their lives and circumstances was devastating – I have no desire to trade places with these people.
- Fontaine and Eponine from Les Misérables by Victor Hugo
- Hazel from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
The Ones I Genuinely Dislike
There are some characters that I truly despise. I would never want to go within a mile of these people and swapping lives with them – absolutely not!
- Dolores Umbridge from the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
- Mr Collins from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- Christian Gray from Fifty Shades of Gray by EL James (also Edward Cullen from Twilight as to me they’re the same person).
I laughed at the Fifty Shades one xD No thanks to Umbridge too! I feel the same way about dystopian protagonists – I love them and find them really inspiring, but I think I’d die in the first twenty four hours.
Brilliant list. I love your Fifty Shades inclusion too. I have Katniss on my list too, and I very nearly put on Tris!
Not only do I love the title of your blog but your characters are bang on! 🙂
Check out my TTT
Umbridge!!!! The worst of the worst. I think I hated her even more than Voldemort. And I totally agree Christian Grey = Edward Cullen.
Aww, I have Will Traynor from Me Before You in my list and I’d think I would classify that under your The Devastating heading. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Here’s My TTT post 🙂
Those are some awesome picks! I don’t think I would have want to live there too, good reasons!
Hope you can stop by my Top Ten
HAHA I love that you added a group of characters you despise to the list. Very unique.
Great list! I love that you focused solely on the character angle and included such a range of books. 🙂 Happy Reading!
Great picks! I agree with all. I definitely wouldn’t want to have to go through situations like Katniss & Tris had too; and I 100% wouldn’t want to be Edward Cullen. Great picks 🙂 My TTT.
