Top Ten/Teaser Tuesday (4)

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

This week's topic is Top Ten Jerks in Literature (all those jerky guys in books...those who truly were and those who just acted like one but could be quite lovable).
  • Daniel and Cam - Fallen by Lauren Kate
Daniel may turn out to be a nice-ish guy in the end, but I thought he was a jerk through most of the novel. It's been awhile since I read this, but I do very clearly remember Cam being a complete jerk.
  • Bradley - Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith
I don't really remember this story that well, but the fact that this dude is a jerk still stands out in my mind.
  • Kyle - The Host by Stephenie Meyer
He's always trying to kill Wanda/Melanie. He's such a close minded person that I just can't stand him. He's very self-righteous. Definitely a jerk.
  • Joe Morelli - Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich
Morelli has his sweet moments which make him a likable jerk.
  • Voldemort, Draco Malfoy, Severus Snape, and Peter Pettigrew - Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling
Does anything really need to be said here?
  • Edward Cullen, Jacob Black, and the Volturi - Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer
I love the series, but let's face it Edward and Jacob definitely have their jerk moments. The Volturi are just obvious jerks.
  • Eric Northman, Bill Compton, and Jason Stackhouse - Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris
Lovable jerks.
  • Damon Salvatore - Vampire Diaries series by L. J. Smith
I love Damon and like him far better than Stephan, but he is kind of a jerk. He's becoming less of a jerk in Vampire Diaries: The Return series (I haven't read the most recent one).

This was absolutely eerie; I found myself shivering. I pulled the sides of my windbreaker together and, with a tiny sound, zipped it shut. -pg 7

Questions begged answers, and the only way I was going to get some anytime soon was to go straight to the source. -pg 28

I thought about adding Bill Compton, I got fed up of his behaviour quickly, though I have a book crush on Eric so wouldn't put him in my list :)

@ Yvonne

I'm not too far into it yet. So far I like it, but not quite as well as her Sookie Stackhouse series. I plan on trying her other two mystery series too (Aurora Teagarden and Harper Connelly).

@ Ellie

I have a book crush on Eric too! He's just sexy. :)

Hi Cassandra!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my TT earlier today, I appreciate it :)

I like your Top 10 Jerks list haha-- it has also been awhile since I read Fallen, but yeah, I definitely remember Daniel being the biggest jerk EVER-- not my fave book, but I do have Torment in my TBR, so we'll have to see how he turns out!

Have a great week :)

Wonderful teaser selections. My TT:

Yvonne said...

HeeHee -- I love book crushes! :)

La Coccinelle said...

Damon made my list, too. I've only read the first book, so I don't know if he becomes less jerky later on (or if his jerkiness is explained).

Julie @ Read Handed said...

Both of your teaser titles sound fun. Good choices for teasers. If you get a chance, my teaser is here.

Mad Scientist said...

Ah, just found your blog and love it.

What a great list of bad boys. Jace from City of Bones and Patch from Hush Hush would be on my list as well. ;) Love a bad boy everyone once in a while.

Nice teasers as well. New Follower!!!!

Daniel, Draco, and Edward made our list too. I totally forgot about Bradley, but I agree, major jerk. Jason Stackhouse is also a great pick!

LOL! I had to laugh at the fact that you listed Edward and Jacob. Well, I guess we're all jerks once in a while, right?
