Read-a-Thon Update #11: Most Hated Mini-Challenge

I did it! I finished The Return of the King! All of it!

Are any cheerleaders still awake?

Anyway, for this ungodly hour we have Lindsey's Most Hated mini-challenge:

Here's what you need to do. Create a post on your blog about your most hated character from a book. Maybe they're evil, maybe they're just annoying, or maybe they remind you of your ex. Whatever the reason, just pick someone and then write a post that shares who they are, what book they're from and the author, and why you hate them.

Oh don't get me started. Phoebe Pyncheon from Nathaniel Hawthorne's The House of the Seven Gables. The most pure, saccharine, wholesome, happy-go-lucky, over-the-top Victorian Angel of the House ever written. She's one #%^&ing ray of sunshine. The Mary Sue to end all Mary Sues. Bella Swan turns to stone before her.

Having spent the past several hours reading Tolkien nonstop, I hereby express my desire to see Phoebe Pyncheon carried off to Mordor and cast into the fires of Mount Doom. Along with Bella.

Great job on your reading, and thank you for participating in the most hated mini-challenge! I like that you went for a sugary sweet character instead of an evil one!

And that desire is a fine one! Can we throw Kristin Lavransdatter in too? Please, oh please?

Congrats on going the distance!
