New Top 10 List! Top 10 Most Frustrating Characters!!!!

I have definitely come across some characters in my reading that I'd love to throttle. There's even one or two in my writing that drive me crazy. A prime example of that being Ariel in Adventures in Funeral Crashing (still free as an ebook, btw!) because she can just be so mean and yet...maybe there's still a friendship there between her and Kait, so why is she being so mean?

Check out the full list of my Top 10 Most Frustrating Characters on my blog Writer Girl in LA! Top 10 Tuesday is an internet meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and I try to participate every Tuesday!

Here's 3 of my picks:

1. Tally from Pretties & Uglies & Specials by Scott Westerfeld - Okay, by the time I got to Uglies, I was getting annoyed with her. I can't read Specials because I'm still mad. Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed Pretties, but sometimes I just didn't like Tally very much. I mean, I understand the horribleness she's going through - well, as much as I can since I don't live in that world, but still she started driving me crazy! 

2. Dolores Umbridge from The Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling - I was just so frustrated for Harry because when Dolores had him in his grip, he was powerless and she was oh, so evil! So, I was angry and frustrated for him.

3. Becky Bloomwood from the Shopaholic Series by Sophie Kinsella - Don't get me wrong - I love, love, love Becky, but she can get a little frustrating when she takes things too far! I laugh at first, but then it sometimes gets painful! Like, I'm in the middle of Mini Shopaholic and um, Becky, come on - don't make Luke's assistant hound him about you wanting to have another baby! The poor assistant! And, okay, maybe that's because I've done the whole assistant job, but still! Ahhhh! Frustrating!  

That's only 3 of my 10, well kind of, to see more check out the full post on my blog Writer Girl in LA: Top 10 Most Frustrating Characters
