Top Ten Tuesday: 4/28


Top Ten Books Which Feature Characters Who ARE really good at being bad!

If you haven't Googled 'George RR Martin memes'...there are so many to choose from. So many.
If you haven’t Googled ‘George RR Martin memes’…there are so many to choose from. So many.

1. Snape from Harry Potter – Believe it or not, I actually loved Snape by the end. We were all conditioned to hate him (unless you were a Slytherin). Those of us who did hate him felt extremely guilty by the end.

2. Raffe from Penryn & The End of Days – Seriously, I never thought I’d be into the bad boy angel thing…until this.

3. Pensatucky from Orange Is The New Black – Okay, so maybe the show version of Pensatucky is funnier and crazier…but the book version is pretty nuts, too!

4. Captain Randall from Outlander – I can’t even express how much I hate this guy. This villain makes this book. Not only is he the thin link between Claire and her modern day life…he’s a creepy rapist who really enjoys making others feel pain. Ick, ick, ick.

5. George RR Martin from Game of Thrones – Okay, so maybe Martin isn’t technically a character. But the villains he creates are total spawns of satan. Geoffrey? Cersei? Need I say more than Lannister? And honestly, Martin kills EVERYONE you ever care about in this series, so, hey…maybe he is a villain.

Umbridge26. The Study Series by Maria V. Snyder – DUH. Valek is the BEST bad guy and definitely my favorite. He’s not necessarily a bad guy to Yelena after the first book, but he is to everyone else for sure.

7. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling – Professor Umbridge is such a good bad guy (girl). I am 100% being her for Halloween (I know this so far in advance because my best friend throws a Halloween party every year and this year’s theme is Superheroes & Super villains.) She was way worse than Voldemort!

8. The Pretty Little Liars series by Sara Shepard – I know I’m not a huge fan of these books, but A is such a creepy, creepy villain. Following the Liars, spying on them, knowing their every move and keeping them on their toes constantly? Definitely a good bad guy.

9. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – President Snow is TERRIFYING!!

10. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch – the villain in this book (I’m being vague so as not to give away the twistiness) and the details of him/her are so good and totally not the normal story line that you get in fantasy books. I cannot rave enough about the book itself, but the way Raasch wrote every character, including this one, is just astonishing.

  1. I totally agree with Umbridge. I hated her in the HP series WAY more than Voldemort. Probably because I have a weird love for Voldemort, likely due to Ralph Fiennes playing him in the films.
