Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite “Unlikeable” Protagonists

Top 5 Wednesday image

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey on Youtube) as a way for book reviewers and lovers to share their love of lists every Wednesday. Check out the Goodreads group.

  1. Kaz Brekker
  2. Sherlock Holmes
  3. Kelsea Raleigh
  4. Koschei
  5. Bellamy Blake

This week’s Top 5 is all about those unlikable protagonists you cannot help but love. First up is of course Kaz Brekker from Six of Crows. This criminal prodigy is pretty much awful but he totally has my heart. Next is Britain’s notorious sociopath, Sherlock Holmes (especially the Benedict Cumberbatch version), who I really shouldn’t care for but totally do. Kelsea Raleigh from The Queen of the Tearling makes this list as she’s hard to relate too but I still enjoy her story. Koschei definitely makes an appearance and everyone should read Catherynne Valente’s Deathless to experience him. Last but not least is Bellamy Blake whose up and down character arc has still endeared him to the masses.

Who are your favorite unlikable protagonists? Did any of ours match up?

  1. Nice List! I do love Kaz, he is pretty dark and very cunning…but I do have a thing for intelligent and conniving criminals.
    As for Bellamy, I have only watched a season and a half of the show and I am not a huge fan of him too.
