Top 10 Third Wheels

Hey! This year, I'm participating in this event called Top 10 of 2011, hosted by Rachel from FiktshunJessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic Lisa from A Life Bound By Books, and Jaime & Patricia from Two Chicks on Books. Basically, you just recap your favorite books, covers and characters.

Today, I can list anything that relates to characters. So, I'm gonna be listing my Top 10 Third Wheels, characters who never found love at the end of the story, never got the girl, or are currently on the losing side of the love triangle. As usual, click on them to go to Goodreads.

10. Jace from Shifters
Okay, I'm not that sure with this one. I've only read the first three books so far, but Jace seemed like a third wheel to me. Hopefully he ends up with someone, but I have yet to read Alpha.

9. Cal from Hex Hall
At least, that's what I think. I really think Sophie and Archer will end up together, but I have yet to read Spell Bound... Maybe Cal will find some nice girl. Who knows?

8. Jacob from Twilight
Yeah, I just couldn't resist putting this. Yeah, I know he imprinted on Bella's daughter (which is just sick and wrong) but he will forever remain a third wheel to me.

7. Simon from The Mortal Instruments
Yeah, I know he gets not only one, but two 'girlfriends' in CoFA, but in the first three books, poor Simon was totally a third wheel.

6. Dess from The Midnighters
Poor Dess. She doesn't end up with anyone. Though I'm guessing she's happy with her math... Though Scott Westerfeld ended this series cruelly for Jessica and Jonathan. You'll know what I mean if you've read it. :)

5. Logan from Shade
Team Kilt all the way! :D I haven't actually read Shift yet, and Shine's not even out, but Logan feels like the third wheel to me. Zach and Aura are perfect for each other!

4. Paul from The Mediator
I hated Paul. I did NOT want him to end up with Suze. Well, technically he ended up with Kelly, so now I just feel sorry for the guy.

3. Jem from The Infernal Devices
I haven't actually read this book yet, but based on CA, Jem didn't have anybody. I've read somewhere that there's a love triangle in CP, but I have yet to find out.

2. Puck from The Iron Fey
I'm still in the second book, but I already know Ash and Megan end up together. I actually have no idea if Puck falls in love with anyone else.

1. Gale from the Hunger Games
Gale is the ULTIMATE third wheel. He does not end up with anybody. Not with Katniss, not with another girl- he just moves to another city. All alone. Cruel much, Collins?

So that's it. :) Though I gotta say, I feel bad for those guys...

  1. Jace and Gale, omfg, those two!! I wholeheartedly agree with you! (Is there anything left to say? Ah, right: I like the topic you chose! I wish I had chosen that one instead of mine XD)

    All my best,

  3. aww I like this because I am always in love with the third guy that doesn't get anything! I just barely picked up Stray but I heard that love triangle with Jace and Marc is a killer! I love Cal. Sophie probably will be with Archer but I would choose Cal. Got to love Jacob! I still think Bella chose wrong. I also must say I think I prefer Simon over Jace. I know everyone and their mom and grandma love Jace and I do to but I just have a thing for the guy friend so Simon all the way. I haven't read Shade yet but I also heard the Logan/Zach triangle is another dozy. Jem is definitely not a third wheel in CP! You must read it! But I feel like Tessa probably will end up with Will even though I really really hope not. Puck and Gale are another two of my favs! The sweet loyal best friend should really win the girl sometimes!

  5. I love this category! Granted I nearly always like the main guy more for the heroine, but I always feel so sad for the third wheel! Definitely agree with the ones I've read, and I think Adrian from VA should be on the list too!

  6. Simon, Jem and Puck! I love and adore those guys! Great picks ;) and Gale! I'm team gale at the start to be honest well maybe until now XD
