Sometimes, everyone goes: “OMG. THIS GUY IS SO SWOON-WORTHY! AHH! DREAM GUY!” and I’m just like “eh”. We all have different opinions. You may think this character is your dream guy or is the best heroine ever, but I can disagree. Today, I’m sharing 5 characters I didn’t think was all great or was overrated.
Let’s get started!
I’ve seen posts all about Peter K all over Bookstagram! I was reading the book that time (the TATBILB hype was just starting). I was like “eh”, I don’t like this Peter guy. He didn’t swoon me. He’s a boring character. ugh. He’s ridiculous! Especially in P.S. I Still Love You! Why would you like boyfriend who still thinks about his ex? He’s with Lara Jean but Genevieve is always in the picture. No thank you, I don’t need a third wheel in my relationship! I want my man ALL MINE. MINE.
(P.S. JOHN IS WAY BETTER THAN PETER.)
Lara Jean Covey
YES, EVEN LARA JEAN. A lot of people said they love Lara Jean! They said she’s quirky, cute, bubbly, sweet, and all those girly adjectives. For me, she’s childish, naive, spoiled, and annoying! Lara Jean, you’re 16 not 12! Also, I think it’s weird to fall in love with your sister’s ex. Imagine that. Your sister kissed lover boy and you kissed him too. You kiss the lips your sister kissed. You put your mouth where hers went. Ew. *shudders*
Thank goodness our names are spelled differently and pronounced slightly different. Okay. This is probably everyone’s favorite book. I didn’t like it! The characters are so… weird and boring. Cath was the worst of all. Omg. Her life is boring. She eats protein bars (it was protein bars right?) because she doesn’t know where the cafeteria is. Wow, okay. I’m surprised you found your classroom! How did you do it, Cath? You looked around? (probably) Then how the heck didn’t you find the bloody cafeteria?! I just think she’s stupid. I’m sorry Fangirl fans! (omg see what I did there?)
Tris (I even forgot her last name)
Now that I think of it, Tris is so overrated. The books make her out to be super special and all that heroine stuff. I think she’s not that special. First of all, I found a photo online from funsubstance.com! Check it out! It’s sooo trueee! I was laughing out loud!
Anyways, I was thinking… She got Erudite but she’s not THAT clever. She can be very illogical at times and has the dumbest decisions. What even. Also, she’s selfish. The book makes her bloody selfless when in fact she’s so selfish. When Al died, she still didn’t forgive him. Whaat? She needs pity too!
Hold your pitchforks everyone! Okay. Relax. Jace is the least overrated character in this list don’t worry. My thoughts on Jace: He’s sweet (sometimes, in some weird way of his own), and has this bad boy aura that makes girls crazy. I did like him sometimes especially the green house scene… Why do I think he’s overrated? Maybe he wasn’t THAT swoon-worthy. He’s a jerk. Really. He’s also a racist! He keeps on bullying Simon because he’s a mundane. No no no, Jace. He’s also so full of himself. Such arrogant guy. Ugh. I do admit I have only read the first book, so my opinion might change.
That’s all for today! Name characters that you found overrated in the comments! I would love to know!
