Top 5 Wednesdays: 5 Characters I wish I can drown

It's Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday. This week’s topic is the top 5 characters I wish I could drown. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the GoodReads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…


Number 5- Tris from Divergent


I do like Tris as a character, it’s just that at some points she can be really annoying, so it’s not that I want to drown her just knock some sense into her. This especially comes in Allegiant when she still tries to save Caleb even though he has been plotting against her the entire series. I get that her ties to her family are strong but some people just aren’t worth saving, in fact, I would probably just drown Caleb to protect Tris.


Number 4- Victor Frankenstein from Frankenstein


Image result for frankenstein mary shelley bookI studied Frankenstein for my AS course and I did enjoy the book but Frankenstein is just not a likeable character. To me, you are also meant to like the protagonist but I just don’t. He creates the creature and neglects him and wonders why he is evil. Like father like son… 







Number 3- Umbridge from the Harry Potter series

While writing this post, Umbridge can be seen on many of these posts and, mine is not an exception. I am currently writing this wearing a Harry Potter shirt showing my love for the series. She is evil; making Harry write in his own blood as well as having a weird obsession with cats. She also makes everyone’s life at Hogwarts torture. There’s nothing to like about her.

Number 2- Valentine from The Mortal Instruments series

As a villain we are expected to dislike them but Valentine just takes a villain to a whole new level. (Spoilers ahead, if you have not read the City of Glass, stop reading now!) Valentine pretends that Clary and Jace are siblings and in the City of Glass it is revealed that he experiments on both his son and daughter and I believe he also kills a woman while doing so. It is fair to say Valentine has cemented on this list.



Number 1- Sutter Keely from the Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp

Image result for spectacular nowSutter Keely to me is automatically a dislikeable character, he is a senior in high school who has a non-caring attitude and is a borderline alcoholic at 18. It is when he finds Amie that you will think he will change but he just doesn’t. He is the same for the entire novel and I would happily slap him to knock some sense into him because we do not need people like him in this world.

Who would be the characters that you would drown, leave your opinions in the comments below.

See you soon

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
