This week's Top Ten meme from The Broke and the Bookish asks us to name our top ten list for jerks in literature.
Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice- He's definitely in the "just acted like one but could be quite loveable" category.
Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye- I know some people liked him and related to him, but I was not one of those people. He annoyed me to no end and I thought he was a jerk.
Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl- I'm almost ashamed to add him to the list, but yes, I have read a few of the books and I watched the first two seasons of the show. I stopped when him and Blair broke up. If they get back together, let me know. They are both brats and are perfect for each other.
Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter- Of course, he had to be on this list. I'm sure he'll be on most peoples' list.
Nils Bjurman from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo- Horrible, horrible man that abuses any power he gets.
George Wickham from Pride and Prejudice- Boy who can accept no responsibility masquerading as a man.
Benedict Fludd and Herbert Methley from The Children's Book- Not many people have read this book so I won't give their sins away, but these two men are messed up.
