Top 5 Wednesday: Characters You Wish You Could Drown

Top 5 Wednesdays was created by the booktuber gingerreadsLainey for the booktube community, but now bloggers also have a chance in participating. If you are interested in Top 5 Wednesday, there is a Goodreads group where you can find a list of participants as well as Top 5 Wednesday topics.

This Wednesday the topic is "Characters You Wish You Could Drown" and I'm sure I can think of more then 5 of them - so I'll try to be original here if possible.

Anastasia Steele from "Fifty Shades" Trilogy by E.L. James
There are no words. I hated Anastasia and her "inner goddess" so much that I don't even know how I managed to finish these so called "books". She was constantly annoying and stupid - I didn't know if I should laugh or cry or throw the book out of the window.
So, hands down this is the first character I can think of that deserves such a painful death as drowning.

Margaret Beaufort from "The Red Queen" by Philippa Gregory
Again, a main character from one of the books that I've read. I love these series by Philippa Gregory (in case you are wandering this is book 2 in "The Cousins' War" series) but this book was about my least favorite character. Margaret Beaufort is full of hatred woman, a fanatic, pure evil and she thinks so highly of herself. She thought she is the next Joan of Arc and her doings were "God's will"...get a grip woman, you are just insane.

Peter Pan from "Peter Pan" by J.M. Barrie
Yes, I hate Peter Pan. I find his character very immature. I know he is a kid but I really wanted to beat the crap out of him a couple of times. It's a shame because I really enjoyed the movies when I was young but when I read the book - oh, boy...what stupid decisions you've made, Peter.

Emma from "Emma" by Jane Austen
Well, I'm really sorry about this one, but I can't stand Emma. She is so spoiled and so judgemental even though she understands nothing about human nature and she can't even see her own mistakes and flaws.

Ramsay Bolton from "A Song of Ice and Fire" series by George R.R. Martin
This may come as no surprise for the people who've read the books or at least watched the TV series. I can't even look at this guy's face when he appears. How can a person be so evil?! I can't even talk about him, I'm sorry. I'm sure most of you feel the same way.

So, this was fun. Hope you don't kill me for my picks :D


  1. I have to say you are the first Peter Pan hater I've come across. Lol. This list is awesome though! :)

  2. I had Anastasia as well. Of course, she followed Bella into the lake and since I know 50 Shades started out as Twilight fan fiction, and Anastasia was patterned after Bella, there was no doubt they both needed to die. Great list! Oh, and BTW, I hate Peter Pan as well!

    1. Another Peter Pan hater. I'm so happy I'm not the only one :)
