There are always those characters that you aren't meant to love, but you do. The villein that makes you smirk, the love triangle that you know is going to go the other way, but you are still rooting for the third man. There are lots of these characters that we keep hidden inside the pages, although we want to let them free. These are my top five problematic favorites for this Wednesday.
5. At number five on my list is Jacob from Twilight. He's the third wheel, the alternate boyfriend. How can you not fall in love with Jacob when he picks up the pieces of Bella's broken heart. Stay with Jacob, Bella. Stay. Edward is no good for you!
4. This book is from my all time favorite author, Garth Nix. Sabriel happens to be bugged at every turn by Mogget the Cat. He is a free magic being locked up in the bod of a cat. Very dangerous and mischievous. Always trying to get Sabriel to let him out of his bonds and at one point he does. I happen to love Mogget, even though he is an ass most the time.
3. Throne of Glass has been a new adventure for me. I didn't enjoy it as much as The Court of Thorns and Roses series, but it was still a great read. There is one Character that has simply been problematic throughout the whole series. Someone who follows the main character all over the place like a lost puppy, but how can we not love Sam. Even if he tries to kill Celaena every chance he gets.
2. We are getting close to number one, but before we do. Here is number two. I just read this book last month and fell in love with it. It has to be one of my favorite books this year. The Diabolic has so many awesome characters, but I think that the other Diabolics are the key to the whole story. They are cunning and devious. I loved them.
1. My number one pick for problematic favorites is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I know Tamlin is a jerk who tried to lock Fayre up and keep her from being a person, but I still love him. In the beginning, he was only doing what he thought best to break the spell and set his people free and I believe he truly loved Fayre. He just had separation issues he couldn't get past. Even though Tamlin turns into such a tool in the later books, he still has a special place in my heart.
