50/50 Friday - Most/Least Overrated Main Character

This meme is hosted here and over at Blue Eye Books.

What is 50/50 Friday?
Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. So that's what 50/50 Friday is all about. We will have a new topic every Friday. If you have have ideas for this meme don't be scared to let me know!

Topic for the Week
Most/Least Overrated Main Character

So we've all been there, we're reading this book and we like it but just don't understand the whole hullabaloo about the main character. Everyone loves them but we just sit there on the fence, not in love with the MC but we don't hate her. We just think she's overrated.

This guy who got his own book actually inspired this topic....

Most Overrated MC
Chaol Westfall
Everyone LOVES him, I don't get it. Sorry.

Least Overrated MC 
Katniss Everdeen
Most everyone I know says that Katniss is sooooo overrated and they think she's been overdone and overplayed and I just don't agree. She's one of the few hugely popular characters that I truly love.

Topic for Next Week
Favorite/Least Favorite Read of January


  1. I haven't read anything past Queen of Shadows yet, but I currently don't really care for Chaol either.

    1. I'm so happy to know that I'm not alone! Yes, Queen of Shadows if what made me dislike him. I've not read anything past QoS either.... I really need to change that!

  2. I'm a fan of both, but when it comes to Chaol I haven't read past Heir of Fire yet. :)

    1. I've not read past Queen of Shadows but to me, he's kinda a jerk in that novel, just wait and see. Tell me what you think when you get to it!

  3. I sure do agree with you about Katniss!

  4. Chaol for sure! I liked him in the first two books but after that his attitude just went to place that I couldn't follow. While I greatly appreciated Tower of Dawn, he remains one of my least favorite characters in the cadre.

    1. Yeah, that's my fear and why I haven't finished the series because I have to read his book.... ugh.
