Created by Lainey from GingerReadsLainey and now hosted by Samantha from ThoughtsonTomes, this week's entry describes my favorite villains.
Note: I did a topic like this for my Top Ten Tuesday #20 a couple weeks ago, so if I sound repetitive on numbers 2 and 1 on this post, that's why.
--It's been a little while since we've done the villain topic, and this one will definitely be a recurring one in the group as there are always new villains to talk about. I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO AVOID HARRY POTTER CHARACTERS!!!! Yes, yes, we all know that Umbridge is the ultimate villain, more hated than Voldemort because she is so realistic. We know that we all love Bellatrix's particular kind of crazed obsession. We all know that Voldemort is such a classic that he is the first person to jump into our minds. We all know the Dursley's suck. See? I strongly encourage you to point out some different villains so that Harry Potter doesn't dominate all the lists. Because as much as we love HP, it does get a little redundant. *jumps off soapbox*
5. Valentine: Mortal Instruments
I always thought Valentine was more of a politician than a father towards Clary and Jace. But that didn't mean he wasn't devious and cunning. To take your own flesh and blood and trick him into thinking you were something more is the most dangerous thing you can do to your son. and to drag Clary into it was just despicable. But that's how Valentine works.
4. Victoria: Twilight
Victoria was so sly, sneaky, quick and devilish. She needed to avenge her love James' death from when Edward killed him in movie one, so she analyzed a newborn vampire army to kill Bella and the Cullens. Her cat-like stance, her small voice!! She was everything. Bryce Dallas Howard was a good Victoria, but Rachelle Lefevre was fierce!!
Bryce Dallas Howard in Twilight Saga:Eclipse (2010)
Rachelle Lefevre in Twilight (2008)
and Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)
3. James: Twilight
Before Victoria, was her boo James from the first movie/book. Even he was a dangerous, rogue vampire who played with his food. He played games with Bella, destroyed her leg, bit her arm, swung her around everywhere, just took her apart because he could. He did whatever he wanted because he knew he could. And that is a terrifying guy to mess with!
2. Peter Pan: 'Wendy Darling: Stars'
This may be surprising to those who haven't read the book, but Peter Pan is actually the villain, not Captain Hook!! In fact, Hook is barely in the first book!! Peter is so manipulative, destructive, cocky, violent, misogynistic, jealous, disgusting human being, and I counted down the pages until poor Wendy and her brother Michael got out of Peter's island to go back home. I haven't read the second book, Seas, yet, but I'm hoping Hook helps the Darlings get back home and away from Peter forever.
1. Jeanine: Divergent/Insurgent
In the first two books, Jeanine went from an advisor in Erudite, to a complete control-freak who had wanted to use Tris to control it even more. I'm glad that Four's mom Evelyn was the one to kill her, even though Evelyn was just as bad as Jeanine.
I'd love to hear some of your favorite villains in the comments below!
