Oh yeah, this topic might be my favorite and the easiest. I mean, ALL my faves are problematic. This list could go on for a while, good thing you only asked for five. Let’s get into the list:
Adelina Amouteru from The Young Elites. My badass tortured queen, she does some morally grey
borderline black stuff, yet still stole my heart. Slay girl, slay.
AIDEN from The Illuminae Files. Of course, since he’s a spaceship, there’s not going to be a picture of him. But, that does not matter. It was basically love at first sight. From his twisted morals to his warped sense of protection, I wasn’t expecting to love him… but it just happened.
Kaz Brekker from The Six of Crows duology. I feel like he’s going to be on everyone’s list, but how can you not add him? He’s like the definition of problematic fave. And heartache. Definitely heartache.
Lila Bard from The Shades of Magic trilogy. Again, I couldn’t imagine not adding her to the list. Though, I feel like half the cast could fit on this list. We all know about the lady thief turned pirate who took the Londons by storm. She needs her own story.
Meda Melange from The Soul Eater trilogy. Yo, she might be my OG fave problematic main character. This rule breaking, soul eating, lovely lady held my heart and took off running with it. I may have to do a re-read…
