10 Awful Villains I Love to Hate | Top Ten Tuesday

top ten tuesday across the books

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt was a villain freebie, meaning we get to talk all about bookish villains! When thinking of villains to include in this list, I was surprised at how difficult it was to find 10. One, because my most read genre is contemporary where the villain is usually internal. And two, because I don’t really have that many villains I hate. Of course, I can’t stand most villains but I’m not that affected by them because they’re usually interesting and help the plot exist essentially. However I was eventually able to come up with 10 villains that have really made an impact on me; be it rage or intrigue. I haven’t included descriptions this time because I feel like the title is self-explanatory enough and it would be very repetitive! Without further ado:

P.S – I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything in 2 weeks. University has taken quite a toll on me as I expected it to and my blogging schedule suffered as a result. I have been reading a lot of uni books, meaning I haven’t had time to read YA in the last month. My half-term break is coming up soon so hopefully I’ll use that time to get my shit together and schedule some blog posts haha. Thanks for understanding

    I haven’t met him in the books, but from the film and TV show, I could have added Valentine Morgenstern, too! He’s such a creep. I’ve also heard the Queen from the Lunar books makes a great villain. Someday I need to read Marissa’s series!

    Oh yeah President Snow- he’s awful! Great pick. And The Cruel Prince I have yet to read but from what I’ve heard I’m not surprised that someone from that book made a great villains pick haha!

    Levana made my list too. Though I’m not sure if I wanted to end her or hug her after reading Fairest. Great list!

    Here is our TTT.
