the Broke and the Bookish is Top Ten Characters that Others Like that I Don't Get and Vice Versa. So I thought and thought and really struggled coming up with anything. So I broadened it a little bit and went with books as well as characters and today Top Ten is really going to mean Top 6!
The end of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - I read Gone Girl for a book club and ended up really enjoying it. I thought the ending really fit the book and I found it pretty believable for all the twisted craziness. There were a number of people at the book club who were irate at the ending and I've seen that mirrored in reviews as well.
Rebecca in Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier - I kind of like Rebecca. I'm not saying she's not crazy and twisted and just a terrible person in general but she actually does something and goes after what she wants unlike the nameless spineless narrator. Plus I have a feeling Maxim wasn't exactly a dream to live with either.
Better Homes and Hauntings by Molly Harper - I LOVED this book. For starters it was just one of those magical times where this was exactly the book I wanted for the mood I was in and everything just really clicked. I loved the characters, loved the story, and while there was a few too many subplots I was more then willing to overlook it. I think the reason that most people didn't love it is that they were expecting more from Harper while she was new to me. I am just starting to dip my toe into more paranormal and fantasy and everything so I'm looking forward to reading more of her books to find out what I was missing!
Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult - This was another book I read for book club and to be honest I would never have picked it up on my own. While I found it incredibly readable I also felt like Picoult was manipulating the situation for the biggest emotional impact and I had issues with how certain things came about and then ending drove me crazy!
What books have you loved that everyone else seems to hate or vice versa? Any characters drive you over the bend that everyone wants to be BFFs with?
