T5W: Characters You Used to Love But Don’t Anymore

Today is Wednesday which means it’s time for Top 5 Wednesday! If you don’t already know, T5W is a weekly meme created by Lainey from Gingerreadslainey but is now hosted by Sam from Thoughtsontomes. If you’re interesting in joining the T5W family, you can join the group by clicking here.

Without farther ado, this week’s topic is top 5 characters you used to love but don’t anymore. This includes characters that I used to love, but for some reason I either hate or just don’t care for anymore.

5. Ethan Wate- Beautiful Creatures


At one point I actually did care about Ethan Wate – the protagonist from The Caster Chronicles – but around books 2 and 3  I just didn’t really care about what happened to him (or anybody in this series to be honest). Ethan was really the only character I ever cared about in this series. I never cared about Lena, I never cared about Link… I’ve just been a bit ‘eh’ towards them all. I think ‘eh’ is a  good word to describe this series as a whole, really.



4. Jace Wayland- The Mortal Instruments 


And now you learn my deepest, darkest secret: I don’t care about Jace Wayland from The Mortal Instruments Series. I’ll give you guys a second to gasp and curse my name and perform an exorcising ritual. I can’t justify myself with this one, but I can say that I was never impressed by Jace in any shape or form. I don’t know why, maybe it’s the way Clary describes him as a god whose footsteps should be worshiped upon, or the way Clare makes him out to be the perfect romance-novel guy. Either way, I’d kill Jace in a heartbeat if that would mean saving the Shadowhunter world. Does that make me the equivalent of Sebastian? Maybe so, but I honestly don’t care.


3. Quentin Jacobsen- Paper Towns


I started this novel liking Quentin enough, but the more the book went on, the more I disliked him. He was so obsessed with Margot, a character I hate by the way, and just fell flat to me as a character. Overall, this entire novel fell flat… it just missed something I can’t quite put my finger on.





2. Teresa- The Maze Runner


I don’t know what I have against Teresa, but I just don’t like her. I didn’t really have much of an opinion on her at first aside from confusion as to who she was and what her intentions were, and then she could talk to Thomas in her mind and I though ‘Oh, that’s cool!’ but then she just got annoying to me. And how Thomas would drop everything for her, even if she wasn’t being trustworthy in any sense of the word. And the unnecessary romance between Teresa and Thomas was a no-no (especially since I ship Newtmas with all my heart and soul).



1. Cath- Fangirl


I loved this book (aside from the god-awful fan-fiction excerpts) and I started the book off loving Cath. She was like another version of me, after all! But then she got annoying and I could barely even stand her about 3/4 of the way through the book. I hate to say it, but it’s true. And most of the time she seemed to completely brush off Levi… a hot guy who seems to be interested in you. She also got annoyed at her English professor for not accepting fan-fiction as an assignment…. I’m sorry Cath, but fan-fiction does not count as English homework. As much as I love it and thinks it deserves its own genre, it doesn’t count. Period.


What did y’all think of my answers? Do you have any of the same answers as me, or are yours different? Let me know in the comments! And leave a link to your T5W post if you did it as well!

    Okay, maybe I don’t dislike Jace as much as you do since he’s still on my top 10 list, albeit the bottom of that top 10.

    And I feel annoyed with Cath too. I mean, she’s the character that’s like me the most in terms of she writes slash fanfictions, she’s shy and introverted, and she eats protein bars or what it’s called in her room because she didn’t know where the dining hall is and didn’t want to go there. I’m all that, and I did the last thing too the first week I went to study abroad in uni but other stuff about her made me so annoyed. And about her coursework. I get finishing that Simon Snow fic is important, but please, not at the cost of your studies.

    Anyways, great list 🙂 Here’s my list if you want to check it out.

    1. *High five*
      I don’t dislike Jace, but I just don’t see what’s so great about him. I get that Cath is an introvert and all but didn’t she go to Starbucks where Levi worked? They have food there.


  2. Omg not Cath she is soo like me I didn’t really find her annoying I still couldn’t believe she handed in the fan fiction for home work in beautiful creatures didn’t you like jhon breed he was a pretty cool guy I had to agree with Teresa she just made me so angry.

      1. I don’t really love any of the characters from the mortal instruments tbh. I can understand why some people might love them, I just don’t. The only character that is slightly amusing is Isabelle.
