Here are some that came to mind for me:

 

Stephen King - The Stand

Scott Meyer - Magic 2.0 series

Ted Walliams - Otherland series

Geronimo Stilton, Thea Stilton - Various Books

Audrey Niffenegger - The Time Traveler's Wife

Melanie Rose - Could It Be Magic?

Eowyn Ivey - The Snow Child

Neil Gaiman - The Ocean at the End of the Lane

George Orwell - Animal Farm

 

I'm sure various children's books would fit as well, but I already named 9 things, so :P.

This week's topic is: Problematic Faves

 

Author's Note:
--Characters you don't want to love, but you can't help liking.

 

I have to say I don't quite understand the topic (that's probably just me though). I don't think it's happened that I don't "want to like" a character but then I do like them? I can see if it means liking a character that maybe has some shady sides, but I don't know if that's what's meant..? :unsure:

Sounds like it, I thought we did this topic quite recently?  Characters who you love to hate, or something similar?

Yes, we did have a topic of characters you love to hate! But maybe that's something different than characters you don't want to like but you like them? I have no idea, I find both pretty confusing!

I am not sure I understand the topic for this week either.

I will say I was quite fond of Miranda The Devil Wears Prada. As I could not stand the protagonist Andy and we are I assume, all supposed to  dislike Miranda. 

 

There was also a character in The Flowershop By The Sea by Ali McNamara, who was awful. Her personality was stuck up and she was always right, but I liked the character.

 

Honestly though, like you say it's not that easy to understand what they are asking.
