Most Hated Book Characters in YA (And Why)

Maeve – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

  • Enslaved Aelin for 2 months
  • Tortured Aelin
  • Tortured Fenrys
  • enslaved and tortured Aelin for 2 months

Cairn Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

  • Whipped Aelin
  • Tortured Aeiln
  • Sadistic coward
  • Cruel
  • Literally just evil

Jessamine Lovelace – Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

  • Her character’s stupidity is so potent and concentrated that it made me lose precious brain cells
  • unforgivable crime especially considering the fact that our brain nerves to not grow back after they are damaged
  • Her internalized misogyny is also something else (but that is more of a societal problem)
  • Betraying Tessa and the others for Nate

Taryn Durate The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

  • extremely similar to Jessamine in the worst ways possible
  • for both of them there is nothing wrong with a girl wanting romance (I’m one of them), but it’s how they manipulate and betray others for….very questionable guys (to say the very least).
  • Betraying Jude for Taryn

Mal OrestevShadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

  • Took like 2/3 of the entire series for him to “accept” Alina’s powers and her identity as a Grisha (she lost her powers not soon after too so I don’t even know if that acceptance count much to be honest)
  • Is as interesting as a wet sock and is as useful as a bag of expired flour
  • Almost as whiny as Alina. Maybe they are a good pair after all

Nathaniel Gray – Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

  • Coward
  • Greedy
  • Ungrateful
  • Killed his own mother
  • Tries to kill his sister Tessa
  • Betrays Tessa

Previous Contenders

Chaol – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

  • Hated him for his treatment of Aelin and the lack of proper reconciliation between them
  • Never formally acknowledged and apologies to Aelin for misunderstanding her, saying all those cruel things to her before Tower of Dawn
  • But his attitude in Kingdom of Ash greatly improved even without the explicit reconciliation
  • so instead of having him be eaten alive by pigs , maybe just driving over his body a few times back and forth with a Honda would do

Nesta Archeron A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

  • Feyre took care of that entire family
  • Didn’t do shit to take of the family really (only really cared about Elain)
  • Treated Feyre like shit despite Feyre literally being the person that is taking care fo the entire family
  • Still treats her like shit (Rhys hates her for it too)
  • Ter ungrateful shitty bratty attitude
