Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. This week’s topic was a little difficult for me because I have realized that I just do not read a lot of books with villains. I am assuming that this is because I am not a huge reader of fantasy! I did manage to come up with five villains who I love, and I am sure that I am forgotten some as well.
Jackal (The Blood of Eden Series by Julia Kagawa)
Are you sick of me talking about Jackal yet? He is my favourite villain so how could I not! I really did like the main character, Allison, but I absolutely ADORE Jackal! He is witty, sarcastic, and his one-liners had me laughing out loud. Julie Kagawa has shared some great Jackal quotes on Goodreads and they are definitely worth reading.
AIDAN (The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff)
Keep in mind I have only read Illuminae, but I freaking loved AIDAN. I have never read about a character quite like him. I do not want to spoil anything so I am not going to tell you why I am so intrigued by him. Just read this series if you haven’t! Also, don’t get me wrong I really did like Kady but no one can be more interesting than AIDAN.
Lady MacBeth (MacBeth by William Shakespeare)
MacBeth who?! The star of the play and the most memorable character was definitely Lady MacBeth! She really was the smart one and I think she was more ambitious and greedy than MacBeth himself.
President Snow (The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins)
I like Katniss but she is by no means one of my favourite characters in The Hunger Games. It was actually the side characters that stood out to me in that series. One of the characters that I loved to hate was Professor Snow. It is so perfectly evil.
Captain Hook (Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie)
I have never been a fan of Peter Pan as a character! Is it just me or is he a little annoying? I am a huge fan of pirates and I think Captain Hook was my first exposure to them. I have been looking for a pirate book that holds up to Peter Pan for years and have yet to find one. Any recommendations??
I need to read more books with fantastic villains! Vicious by Victoria Schwab is high on my lists! I can not wait to see everyone else’s lists this week to get some recommendations!
