This was actually a hard pick for me. There are very few characters I outright hate, at least off the top of my head. However, Bella comes to mind first. I know, I know, hating Bella is almost like a trend, definitely among writers, but still. Her characterization bothers me because it’s a reflection of so many aspects of bad characterization that turns me off when I’m reading other stories that need work.Bella is definitely high up on my hate list with Umbridge from Harry Potter following close behind.
