Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Mean Girls In Books
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish which I am taking part in. This weeks Top Ten was Mean Girls In Books.
I wouldn't say that all of the characters in my list below are either "Mean" or "girls" exactly, but they are the female characters that I want to slap around with a wet fish for various reasons.
Bella Swan - Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer
I hated this obnoxious, shallow, irelevant character in both the books and the films. The ways she messes around Jacob and Edward is rediculous and it is the type of actions that in many other stories would normally make you one of the villains, not the heroins.
Dolores Umbridge - Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling
I suspect this nasty woman will make it onto many other lists. She just came across as being cruel and vindictive; I wish Harry had just punched her one.
Veruca Salt - Charlie & The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
I think this is the first female character in a novel that I really disliked. She is conceited, bratty and I am so glad she gets her comeuppance in the novel.
Morriel - Wars of Light & Shadow series by Janny Wurts
This leader of the Koriani Order which was supposedly founded on Mercy is both manipulative and corrupt. She is probably one of the few unredeemable characters in this series, with her possession of another human being showing us what she is really capable of.
Astrid - Gone Series by Michael Grant
I am sorry but she is so self-righteous, it irritates me! She is bossy and besides being "smart" she has no real redeeming features.
Alexa - Die Softly by Christopher Pike
This attractive cheerleader is one pretty sick individual. She manages to set in motion a murderous plan that seems to end up killing everyone she knows. Nasty girl!
