Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.
This week is Top Ten Characters I liked that were in books I didn't. Like. Or something. I don't know I'm going rogue here and doing this as- top ten characters I liked, period. The other one's too hard.
Madeline from Big Little Lies. Because- of course.
I could say Casey here as she's a cool protagonist, but honestly I liked Tyrone Cypher in this one. He was kind of an ass but he stole the scenes he was in? And he and Casey would make a kick ass team.
Murderbot of course!!
Any of the girls really- they're all awesome.
Reagan was badass
Finnick and Mags- can I take them both? Oh wait... Joanna. Yup Joanna.
Rachel is kickass.
So many great characters- Tormund Giantsbane, Stannis (even if he is kind of a mess), Melisandre...
Hehe. I enjoy your sense of humor. I love how you made the topic easier on yourself. :) I was pretty daunted by it when it came through on my TTT submission form, but I thought I should make the person happy who submitted it and went ahead and put it on the schedule. But it was SO HARD for me to come up with a list because the characters are what make or break a book for me! lol. I don't usually dislike a book if I liked the characters. Way to make it work for you! Nobody should ever drop out because the topic was just too difficult for them. :)ReplyDelete

Thanks Jana! And I'm the same way- a lot of times if I'm not feeling the book it probably IS the characters! But I'm glad you did this one- not every topic has to be easy! And it should be fun to see how people tweak it or what they do for this one.Delete
Have a super Tuesday!
Sometimes characters are like that. They're jerks, but they steal the scenes lol.ReplyDelete
Right? Ha ha!!!Delete
This topic was too insane! I mean, if I didn't like a book I guarantee the characters were a reason why! Oddly, books I didn't like aren't that memorable!ReplyDelete
Here's my Tuesday Post
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
It's a tough one!! For sure. And I'm the same way...Delete
I so totally need to catch up on Big Little Lies! And you have piqued my interest about Tyrone!ReplyDelete
Tyrone's awesome! And yes big Little Lies is the bomb.Delete
Ha yeah, loved Joanna in Catching Fire - and I think her movie portrayal was really good too. I need to read A School For Unusual Girls still - it's made it to the top of my TBR twice now, only to get missed because of other reading deadlines :(ReplyDelete
Joanna was badass, loved her. And Jena Malone played her perfectly.Delete
Yes, Madeline was my favorite from Big Little Lies too.ReplyDelete
She was definitely my favorite part of that book.Delete
You had a good list here. What was it about Murderbot that you liked?
Here is our <a href="http://www.longandshortreviews.com/miscellaneous-musings/top-ten-tuesday-characters-we-liked-that-were-in-books-we-disliked/>Top Ten Tuesday.</a>
Murderbot was just funny in a totally understated way- he just wants to watch their version of Netflix, kinda like a lot of us (me anyway). It's such a deceptively good premise- a murderous AI who just wants to watch entertainment!Delete
Yes Game of Thrones! So many characters to love to hate lol. I also liked Madeline in Big Little Lies. I wish there was a sequel to that book.ReplyDelete
SO many... and Madeline was great. Definitely my favorite...Delete
Madeline was the best!! Loved her in the show too.ReplyDelete
She was great in both!Delete
It was a hard topic. I only came up with 5. I am not surprised to see Shark Club here!ReplyDelete
Right? Shark Club shows up whenever I can get it to...Delete
Haha, I didn't even attempt the topic this week, it was so hard! Aww, Finnick and Mags, love them!ReplyDelete
I did too, they were best! And yeah it was a hard topic...Delete
My TTT https://wp.me/p3ftwe-UX
Finnick was awesome!Delete
I didn't even try this topic this week, too complicated,lol. I MUST read The Martha Wells novellas, though 😊ReplyDelete
I think you'd really like the Murderbot books. Well obviously I've only read the first one, but... you know! It was so good!Delete
This was totally a tough list! So many people have struggled with this list today. I managed 10 but it was a struggle! I liked looking at your list. :-)ReplyDelete
I twas tough! I had to make changes or there was no way!Delete
An interesting list. I'm not sure I would have been able to come up with ten especially with the original taskReplyDelete
Right? A toughie...Delete
Murderbot! Yes, he was hilarious.ReplyDelete
Karen @ For What It's Worth
I loved Murderbot, and can't WAIT for the next novella.Delete
I completely forgot about Reagan from Fangirl from writing my list, she really was a badass.ReplyDelete
I haven't read any of these books but a few of these are definitely on my TBR. I have watched the Hunger Gmes movies those and I love them.ReplyDelete
Interesting list though! I am glad you changed the topic to suit yourself. I have modified the topic too :P
I love all your answers for The Hunger Games. So true!ReplyDelete
That is a weird prompt today.ReplyDelete
I've heard so many good things about Rainbow's books, but haven't ever read them. "Fangirl" does look and sound super cute though, so perhaps SOMEDAY I'll pick up on and give it a chance. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Greg.
WHAT?? I though you had liked Big Little Lies!!! I loved Madeline too!ReplyDelete
I think it would be something for me to choose thereReplyDelete
Reagan was amazing! Finnick, Mags and Joanna were my favorite character additions in the sequel for sure. And ahh my weekly reminder that I need to read Big Little Lies ASAP :)ReplyDelete
I haven't read any of these.ReplyDelete
Oh I loved Madeline too. In the book & on the TV show. And Finnick!!! And now I'm sad :(ReplyDelete
YASS Finnick, Mags and Johanna are all awesome!ReplyDelete
My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2018/04/03/top-ten-tuesday-153/
Oooo, I love finding enjoyable characters. Especially ones that we love. It's the best. :)ReplyDelete
Madeline was definitely a kick-ass character. She was fierce. I think my favorite character from Fangirl was Levi. I just loved him.ReplyDelete
I loved Madeline from BLL too and I completely agree that Reagan in Fangirl was a badass. Loved her!ReplyDelete
You are right, the second part was too hard, ha ha, so I didn't bother. I could only think of one. XDReplyDelete
Did I buy All Systems Red? What makes me think I did? Hmm...
I agree with so many of your choices, including Ty Cypher! He is awesome. Finnick, Joanna, Madeline. Stannis though - not so much. Lol.ReplyDelete
I do not blame you, I mean, I gave up on the topic entirely as I browsed my 2-star and lower books. Though... I almost see it as a challenge now and might do it for a freebie or something when I have more time.ReplyDelete
Right characters. Finnick and Mags, I adore. And Johanna. I wish we got more Johanna, and I wish we got a Johanna update tbh. I need to read All Systems Red soon- I was going to do so in February, and do you see how that worked out? Same with The Shark Club, Fangirl, School for Unusual Girls... they're ALL on my shelf. Glad to know that you loved the characters in them!!
Oh my gosh, Finnick! I love Finnick... I wasn't sure about Johanna at first, but she grew on me after a while.ReplyDelete
And Reagan was pretty badass, though mt favorite character from Fangirl will always be Levi.
The original topic is definitely too hard, when I dislike a book it's usually because I don't like any of the characters in it. You have a great list here, I'm with you on Murderbot and Casey of course!ReplyDelete
~Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum
Finnick! I can't even read THAT book anymore. *sobs* Mags was badass.ReplyDelete
I still need to read Fangirl! It's been on my list for awhile.
Do You Dog-ear?
I loved the tv adaptation of Big Little Lies, but I`ve yet to read the book. Can`t say I really liked Madeline though.ReplyDelete
Carmen`s Reading Corner
Reagan in Fangirl was my favorite character. I didn't participate this week, I had a hard time picking characters. I haven't read the other books you have listed, I do want to read Big Little Lies.ReplyDelete
Gotta do that now and again. Armstrong is fun. I need to catch up with her.ReplyDelete
I struggled with this topic too! I think normally when I don't like a book it's because I don't like the characters! I've got Big Little Lies coming up soon and I can't wait!ReplyDelete
Oh finnick. My heart. And mags.!!!! Okay now my heart aches.ReplyDelete
