TGIF: Characters We Love to Hate

Friday, November 11, 2011









TGIF is a new(ish) feature at one of my absolute favourite blogs, GReads!, hosted by the lovely Ginger. It's a way to celebrate the impending weekend, and answer fun questions. Most of all though, you get to know a wee bit more about all those awesome bloggers you meet. So, what are you waiting for? Do your own post and head on over to link up!

Which characters from a book do you love to hate?

First off, I must say that there really are FAR too many for me to name, so I'm going to have to go with my top five here. That said, I must also note that, yes, I'm aware that my list is dominated by Harry Potter characters. Sue me.




Ok...confession: I have more love for Severus Snape than hate. I love to hate him as much as I hate to love him. C'est la vie, mes cheries :)

  1. Ohh, Draco Malfoy. I loved him as a character, but I hated his actions! Haha. And Snape? After finishing the series, I just couldn't hate him. <3

  2. Awww. I love Draco. :)

    Totally agree about Alison, though.

  3. Kyle Kingston, really? Is that before or after the transformation to the Beast? I may be one of the few but I loved Snape right from the beginning. The last book confirmed that I was right to love him all along. :)

  4. Hopping through. I like Bellatrix mostly because of Helena Bonham Carter. She is simply incredible. I love Draco - both movie and book as well.

  5. I love to hate Draco too in the books and movies! But you know, by the end, I sort of felt sorry for him...

  11. Try as I may, I just couldn't hate Kyle. I agree with Snape--I had some love in my heart for him as well!

    Fun list. :)

  12. Draco was the one my daughter hated the most in the Harry Potter series.
    Truly great villians are the ones that are the most fun to hate I think :)

  13. Totally agree with your choices except Snape because he is simply to beautiful a character to hate! :P

  14. Snape is my love/hate characters. After seeing his love for Harry's mother, I just broke down in tears.

  15. I don't know why, but my favorites in the HP series are Draco and Bellatrix, so I disagree...

  16. I love/hate Severus Snape, too! I think the Harry Potter character I hated most was Umbridge, though--ugh, she was awful!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I hate Snape and I wish he married Bellatrix - there would be one sick couple!

  18. I love to hate and love to love Snape!!

  23. Blodeuedd, I knew there was something fishy about you...loving Snape is no good! No good at all!!!

  24. Draco Malfoy definitely! I agree with Snape. I didn't like him at the beginning but now I love him!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bellatrix would so be on my list, too! Snape was there until the last book and then I just loved him.

    I've never read Pretty Little Liars, but I really think I need to. It sounds like some angsty drama I can definitely eat up!

  26. I love your list and the great pictures! I love the way Helena Bonham Carter just owns her character! Yep, the Allison, she's bad news!

  27. Oh my gosh! I am so with on Bellatrix! She always got under my skin which is what made her such a great character! Professor Umbridge would also have to be on my list. Thinking about her makes me grind my teeth. She's so evil!

  28. I know there will be many difficulties and challenges but I am determined to do it. If it does not succeed then it will be a lesson for me as well
