Problematic Faves | Top 5 Wednesday

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. 
Thanks for stopping by my top 5 Wednesday. I'd love to hear about your favorite problematic characters in the comments below.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
