Helloooo! I hope you all are doing well. As the title suggest, I’ll be doing a post featuring some of my favourite villains in books – whether because they’re good at being villains or whether I adore them and they should be protected even though they’re technically bad and will probably kill us all.
And without further ado, here is my top  favourite bookish villains:
- Holland Vosijk from A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab: I actually ADORE Holland, and I think he deserves a happy ending. Literally, my heart broke for him. I just want to wrap him up in a blanket and let him drink hot chocolate and sleep so the world can’t get to him.
- Sebastian Morgenstern from The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare: Hahaha, I don’t know why but I’ve always been fond of Sebastian. Maybe it’s the fact that he was poisoned by his father and he deserved a better childhood and life. The ending of this series killed me.
- Loki Laufeyson from Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman: The moment I read about Loki, I fell in love with him. He’s such an interesting character, full of wit, ideas, intelligence and mischief. I recently watched Thor for the first time and my love for him grew even more.
- Maven Calore from Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard: I like Maven but I can’t really say much because I haven’t finished the series. But in all honesty, I’m finishing this series because I want to read more about Maven.
- Lord Voldemort from Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling: I think Voldemort is an extremely well written villain. He has clear motives and goals, and sees them through to the end, not allowing anyone to waver his intentions. BUT I am glad for the fate he gets because the world is better off without a Voldemort aha.
- A.I.D.A.N from The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: A.I.D.A.N is an interesting character, mainly because he (its?) an AI (artificial intelligence), programmed to protect everyone on board the ship. Though his actions are meant to protect, like his programming dictates, it’s clear that he has a mind of his own because HE CAN OVERRIDE COMMANDS FROM THE CAPTAIN. This is why I don’t trust robots haha.
And that’s all I have for you today. Are any of your favourite villains on this list? If not, who are your favourite bookish villains?
