Top Ten Tuesday – Unlikable Characters You Can’t Help but Love

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, this week it is Unlikable Characters You Can’t Help but Love (These are villains, criminals, jerks, etc. that make you fall in love with them anyway, perhaps because they evolve by the end or they’re secretly wonderful and have been all along.) I found this quite hard, but finally managed to get a list of 10 (click titles for links to my reviews)!

Book Review – Chasing the Darkness by Cassie Sanchez – Azrael

Bad guy turned “good”.

Book Review – The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling – Rhys Penhallow

Hurt the main character’s feelings.

Random Things Tours – Book Review – What Child Is This? By Bonnie Macbird – Sherlock Holmes

Thinks that he is above everyone, but he uses his skills and knowledge to help people.

Random Things Tours – Book Review – Last Time We Met by Emily Houghton – Fin

Disappears from the other main character’s life without a word.

Book Review – Distant Stars by Kassandra Garrison – Will Rutledge

Does bad things in order to get by.

Random Things Blog Tour – Book Review – The Rabbit Factor by Antti Tuomainen – Henri Koskinen

Not a people person, but does his best for the employees that he has inherited from his brother.

Book Review – It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey – Piper

Quite self absorbed.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas – Rhysand

Portrayed as the bad guy until it is all explained in this book.

Fairest of All by Serena Valentino – The Wicked Queen

An interesting take on the Wicked Queen – you get to see another side to her.

The Beast Within by Serena Valentino – The Beast

The well known transformation to beast and then back again!

    I’ve heard mixed things about The Ex Hex, but I still want to read it, it looks cute.
    Piper from It Happened One Summer, was pretty unlikeable. But the guy (I can’t remember his name), the love interest was also kind of unlikable. Dismissive and judgemental at first, he grew on me though.

      No need to apologise. I have rarely read what other people post about 😊 thank you. It was hard to make sure that I didn’t give anything away so it ended up being quite brief!

    I rarely if ever sympathize with a villain character so creating any kind of list like that is always difficult. But sometimes it’s fun to challenge your bookish mind, too. 🙂 Thanks so very much for visiting my list on this week, Emily. Apologies I didn’t visit here before now.
