Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters Everyone Loves But I Just Don't Get

Tuesday, March 8, 2016

Hi Everyone! 

Just stopping by with another Top Ten Tuesday!  This week's topic is Ten Characters Everyone Loves But I Just Don't Get. I am actually a little nervous to publish this post because I know that so many of you adore these characters. That said, I think that it is important to keep in mind that different aspects appeal to different people! I also want it to be known that I haven't embraced the fandoms for some of these I may still change my mind :)

Without further ado, here is my list:

Characters from Star Wars*
1) Princess Lea
2) Chewbecca
3) Yoda
4) Luke Skywalker
5) Darth Vader
6) R2D2

*To be fair, I haven't read these books or seen the movies. It seems like a creative premise, I just haven't had a chance to indulge. However, it seems like everyone who has ever loves them. Maybe someday I will too!

7) Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter. I do enjoy Harry Potter, but I cannot tell you how many times I have had people swoon over Neville to me. He is a great guy sure, but I am just not that I personally am so swoon worthy over him. He comes across just a little bit goofy to me! I know that is part of his character and he does a good job of playing that up. It's just different for me I guess!

8) & 9) Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. I read all of the books and they were pretty okay reads to me. But these two frustrate me. I struggle with their relationship because I feel like they both crave power and to me that isn't always a positive thing.

10) Gandalf, Frodo, and the rest of the crew from Lord of the Rings.** Same as Star Wars. I haven't had a chance to indulge but the verdict is still out on them. I think the biggest struggle for me is that everyone just adores these characters and I have no idea about them.

**I know its my own fault! I will fix it some day. For now they just end up on this list.

What are your thoughts? Should I give Star Wars and/or LOTR a shot? Any characters that you don't get yet everyone else adores?

 Happy Reading! 


  1. It's strange to me that they made your list when you haven't experienced them yet! You should definitely give LotR and Star Wars a shot, just so you can decide the depths of your dislike of them :) Though, honestly, I can't imagine what there could be to dislike about any of those characters :p I defy anyone to not root for Han and Leia, or Frodo and the Fellowship in their quest to destroy the ring.

    My TTT.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate the insight about giving them a try. :)

  2. I rarely love who everyone else does. Mainly because i'm not the fangirl type. I like characters but I don't LOVE them lol
