top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: Villains We Love to Hate 

Adding to our original TTT villain post 🙂

1. Mrs. Coulter of His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman

She makes my skin crawl, but her intelligence is admirable.

2. Anna from Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

Anna Dressed in Blood

I suppose I don’t really hate her. In fact, I grew to love her. She stands out to me as an interesting villain.

3. Iago from Othello by William Shakespeare

I always think about dear Iago. He really is quite cunning.

4. O’Brien…Big Brother…or Winston himself in 1984 by George Orwell

1984

Who is the villain? We could debate this for hours, and that is one of the many reasons I love this book!

5. The Man Jack (Jack Frost) from The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaimon

His anonymity was so intriguing!

1. The BFG’s Brothers from The BFG by Roald Dahl

2. Miss Trunchbull from Matilda by Roald Dahl

3. The Twits from The Twits by Roald Dahl

For some reason when I started this list, I automatically thought of Roald Dahl, so my first three are from his books. Dahl was so good at humor and evil all in one. Although Miss Trunchbull doens’t really fit the “love” part of the post’s title, she really made the book what it was and was the perfect foe for Matilda. The Giant Brothers and The Twits are just so easy to love in all of their grossness.

4. Yassen Gregorovich from The Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz

Yassen is a James Bond-esque villain with such an intense backstory and a heart that he sometimes shows. I still haven’t read the Alex Rider prequel about Yassen, but I know I need to!

5. Mother from Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Those buttons! So creepy!

Which villains do you love to hate?
