Top Ten Tuesday: Villains/Criminals/Other Nasties

This week's topic is a REWIND - which is great because it allows me to explore topics previously to my joining in on the fun. So I'm choosing to talk about the not so nice characters - because as a reader, I long to hate the bad guys/girls and always root for them to fail.

From Harry Potter:
Obviously Voldemort makes the first but finishing a close second is Dolores Umbridge

From Bloodlines
Sydney Sage's father 

From Throne of Glass:
King of Adarlan and Arobynn Hamel

From Anne of Green Gables
Josie Pye and Jen Pringle 

From Sense and Sensibility
Lucy Steele 

From Poison Study

From the Game of Thrones
Cersei Lannister

Cercei Lannister is a lot more layered a character than most people allow. I see many mentions of her as a bitch, and various other terms, but not many people seem to pay attention to how well written her motivations and development were. She is definitely a villain, but a great character too!
Great list! :)

Great list! I love love love that you included "villains" from Anne of Green Gables! One of my all-time faves, I just started rereading it today. I made my list on "Top Ten Books I've Read So Far in 2015." Here's my TTT. Happy reading!

@TarkabarkaHolgy - I agree. Cersei is an amazing character - brilliant, smart, and terrible all at once. It would be much less of a series without her strength of character.

I hated Umbridge so much!

Michelle said...

I think I disliked Umbridge more that Voldemort. She was just so freaking loathsome. Cool list! I love the bad guys (I am a Slytherin after all)

Oh, this is a great idea for a topic. I particularly like your inclusion of Josie Pye - I haaaated her when I read Anne.
