The question this week:
Who are your favorite literary villains/antagonists, and why?
Literally had to go look at my goodreads to refresh my memory a bit. Most of the books I read, I don't really consider anyone a villain.
Kissed by an Angel did a decent job of setting the step brother up to be a jerk...to even go so far as to kill the cat. That took me WAYY off guard. The author did a great job of keeping me rooting for him, until I wasn't rooting for him anymore.
Wow. This book was really, really intense to the point I had to take a couple of breaks reading it just so I didn't freak out. The brother in this novel was a complete douche. I mean, I fight with my sister, but this guy had it all...There was no limit to his evil.
Old school, but Izzy Willy-Nilly
I didn't like the guy...but so quick run down of the story; Girl goes to a party. Girl likes a guy. Guy says he's not too drunk and drives her home. Well...they crash. He walks away, she loses her leg (and her position on the cheer leading team). He doesn't apologize, visit her in the hospital, he goes after other girls. He's an all around jerk. But...I think what she does is awesome.
Yep..so those are my recommendations for the night. Thanks YA Highway!
I write a bit of everything, I try to get some of it published. Most times, I get rejected. I submit again (to other places). Eventually, I get published. In the meantime, I complain about the hazards of real life. It's a process, really.

Oh my GOD, I read Izzy Willy-Nilly. YES YES AND YES. That put me off ever getting in a card with someone under the influence :/ReplyDelete
It was a great read. I tried it in high school, and then lost interest (a bit of a slow read) then in college, I really appreciated it.ReplyDelete
And yes, drunk drivers are bad news bears. :/
Wow, I haven't read any of these. But it seems like you brothers as villains :-)ReplyDelete
@Sarah--I like family type of villains, or self-villains. This was a really hard topic for me because I read novels that don't have exactly villains, just bad people, lol.ReplyDelete
Okay I have few new books for the pile. I think one of my favorite villains is Count Olaf from a series of unfortunate events, he is clearly bad, but so versatile as well.ReplyDelete
