Hey lovely readers!
Because Halloween and villains go hand in hand, here is a list of my top 5 book villains.
Amarantha – A Court of Thorns and Roses
“You traitorous piece of filth,” she seethed at Rhysand. “You’re just as bad as the human beasts.” One by one, as if a hand were shoving them in, his talons pushed back into his skin, leaving blood in their wake. He swore, low and vicious. “You were planning this all along.”
Seriously she is just the worst. She literally makes my skin crawl. And my poor Rhysand *sobbing* the horrible things she forces him to do just breaks my heart. If you know me you know how much I love my Rhys, so I have to hate this bitch haha
Black Jack Randall – Outlander
“The voice did not come at first; for a moment he hoped it would not–perhaps it had been long enough…but then it was there again, whispering in his ear as though it had never left, its insinuations a caress that burned his memory as once they had burned his skin.
“Gently at first,” it breathed. “Softly. Tender as though you were my infant son. Gently, but for so long you will forget there was a time I did not own your body.”
The night stood still around him, paused as time had paused so long before, poised on the edge of a gulf of dread, waiting. Waiting for the next words, known beforehand and expected, but nonetheless…
“And then,” the voice said, loving, “then I’ll hurt you very badly. And you will thank me, and ask for more.”
So this is actually a memory of Jamie’s from his time in the prison with Randall. If you know what Randall does to Jamie you’ll understand my hatred. And if you don’t know, I kind of envy you. The man is pure evil.
Dolores Umbridge – Harry Potter
“You know, I really hate children.”
I mean you know I had to include her. I think most of us in the Harry Potter fandom hate her more than Voldemort. I think the quote says it all. I just want to punch her in her toad-like face. Who’s with me?
Humbert Humbert – Lolita
“Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita. Did she have a precursor? She did, indeed she did. In point of fact, there might have been no Lolita at all had I not loved, one summer, an initial girl-child. In a princedom by the sea. Oh when? About as many years before Lolita was born as my age was that summer.”
I feel like this one is pretty self explanatory. I read the book, because I was genuinely interested. But my gosh was it difficult to get through. This guy probably scares me the most, because he really doesn’t see anything wrong with what he’s doing. An ignorant villain is infinitely more terrifying.
Joe – You
See here’s the thing. Joe is a villain, you know because he’s a crazy stalker, murderer. But honestly I hate him so much because he makes you feel crazy. At times throughout the book I found myself feeling sorry for him and understanding his perspective. Obviously he is not to be sympathized with, but this book was written in such a way that you could find yourself agreeing with Joe. Evil evil dude. Find my full review of You here.
Thanks for reading guys! Talk to you soon! ❤ Adrianna
