Character Traits I Hate

I decided to do a little spin on this week’s Top 10 Tuesday prompt and instead of characters traits I like I thought I would go with character traits I dislike!! There is usually a commonality between all of the characters I tend to dislike in books and when I really sat down and thought about it this was the list that I came up with!

naiveThere is just something about naïve main protagonists that just gets on my nerves. 

Example: Charlie from Save the Date by Morgan Matson

Picture3Those characters that are just all me, me, me! 

Example: Billy from Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

9781786331519

Picture4Characters that have no backbone and just let everyone walk all over them. 

Example: Elle from Geekarella by Ashley Poston

Picture5I really don’t like characters that judge other character without knowing/talking to them! 

Example: Zuri from Pride by Ibi Zoboi

Example: Jude from The Wicked King by Holly Black
