Top 5 Wednesday was originally created and run by Lainey aka gingerreadslainey (Youtube channel) but it is now being run by Sam aka Thoughts on tomes (Youtube channel). Each week there is a different topic. You can check out the groups Goodreads page here for any more information and the future topics. This week the topic is favourite villains. I love a good villain, so I had to do this topic. I did already do a post talking about some of my favourite villains, so for this post I will share different villains. You can check out the first post about villains here. Let’s get started.
Chlorr of the Mask from the Old Kingdoms series by Garth Nix – I love the complexities of this villain. It is not simply that she is a villain – she has depth to her. If you’ve read all of the Old Kingdom books you will know what I mean, but I won’t say anymore as I don’t want to spoil it.
The Jackal from the Red Rising trilogy by Pierce Brown – Again I love the complexities of this character. He is also just a really nasty person, but he is a great villain for this trilogy.
King Galbatorix and Shruikan – These two are pretty dark. I really enjoy the fact that throughout most of the series they are shrouded in mystery. We don’t really meet them until the last book and I like that mystery.
General Woundwort from Watership Down by Richard Adams – This rabbit is brutal and he makes such a great antagonist in this book. I had to include him as he is part of one of my all time favourite books.
The White Witch from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis – I don’t need to talk about this one. I feel like it’s an obvious choice. She’s a great villain.
I have to admit it did actually take me a little while to come up with these answers, because I had already done a post about some of my favourite villains. I got there in the end though :). Let me know who your favourite villains are. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
