Top 5 Wednesday: Favourite Villains

What is Top 5 Wednesday?

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. Here is the link for the Goodreads group where you can find the list of topics and such.

This weeks topic is: Favourite Villains 

1. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Maven.

I love him as a villain because he was clearly a product of his surroundings. Without his mother manipulating him and messing with his mind he could've been so very different. He's a dangerous person because its so easy to sympathise with him, to imagine he is still redeemable which happens to many of the characters in the Red Queen series.

I have a review for Kings Cage here.

I have a review for War Storm* here.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

2. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Jaxon Hall.

The suavest villain I know. He's scary because he got away with using the other characters for so long. When they did try and liberate themselves he wasn't happy about it at all and his true personality appeared. He's a complete scene stealer. I adored reading his scenes despite him being an awful person.

I have a review for The Song Rising* here.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Legendary* by Stephanie Garber

Legend.

Not a villain per se but he isn't the most wholesome of characters even though he's incredibly loveable. There's a mystery to him and everything appears to happen simply for his own gain. I adored trying to fathom out who he was and the reveal was simply spectacular. He reminds me a little of Batman, an anti-hero.

I have a review for Caraval here.

I have a review for Legendary* here.

To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

The Sea Queen.

She's a villain simply because she's a villain. There's no mitigating factor as to why she's like this. She's simply an awful person. Which I think is a brilliant palette cleanser in YA. So often we see villains with sob stories to explain the way they are. It's nice to have a change. The Sea Queen is just plain evil.

I have a review here.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

5. A Conjuring of Light by V.E Schwab

Osaron.

Again, another villain that's simply evil. He's such a compelling villain though, the way he used Holland was so terrifying. Definitely not the sort of villain you'd want to find yourself dealing with. His power and might was astounding and had very grave results.

I have a review for A Gathering of Shadows here.

I have a review for A Conjuring of Light here.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Who are your Favourite Villains?

Thank-you for reading,
