Books: 3 Characters I Love to Hate

This week's Book List topic is "3 Characters I Love to Hate."

Here's my list...

1) Rebecca from "Rebecca"

2) Miss Trunchbull from "Matilda"

3) Kevin from "We Need to Talk About Kevin"

Hop on over to Lost in Books for more info.

  1. I saw Rebecca as your first choice and it made me stop and think, what? Oh yeah...the book...lol. I'm sooo ready for a nap!

    Thanks for playing this week, Melissa. Good answers. I haven't read Rebecca or We Need to Talk About Kevin, though both are on my TBR list. I will have to remember your warning ;).

  2. You'll definitely have to check them out. "Rebecca" is a favorite of mine. Be forewarned that "We Need to Talk About Kevin" was a controversial book that dealt with sensitive material, but I thought it was masterfully handled.

  3. I have Mrs. Danvers, too and really considered Kevin. I forgot Miss Trunchbull--she really was awful!

  4. Sounds like fun! I'm going to do it too.

    I love the movie "Matilda" and have the book on my wishlist.
