Confessions of a Bookaholic, A Life Bound By Books, Fiktshun, Two Chicks on Books, and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads . It will be featured on my blog all week. I thought this would be an amazing way to finish up my year. Hopefully this will help you guys learn more about me and my reading tastes.
I decided to do villains today because there are too many villains that often go unrecognized. Plus, who doesn't like hearing about creepy, scary people out for vengeance.
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver: Lena betrays her family, her people... her best friend. She becomes a rebel against everything she's ever believed in. Hopefully it's for a good cause.
The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead: Sydney Sage has problems. She'd becoming her own villain. Her heart is falling for the enemy and turning against everything she believed in. She's betraying her own family.
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson: We've all dealt with mean girls before. But it's 10x worse when that mean girl is your best friend. It's even worse when that best friend is you. Good thing this is the summer of second chances where almost anything goes.
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo: Darkling is handsome and mysterious. He has everyone under his thumb, even the girl who loves him. Little does she suspect he's just using her. Using her to rule the world.
Fever by Lauren DeStefano: One of the worst kinds of villains is not the one killing people to satisfy his desire for blood. It's the one killing people in the name of science. Sacrificing people to save others. Because he's going to succeed. No matter what (or who) it costs.
Scarlet by A. C. Gaughen: This man is evil. He knows everything about the girl who escaped her destiny years ago. After all, he was engaged to her. Who better to track her down, destroying the life she made for herself in the process, and force her to marry... or die.
Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr: In this book, the villain is the father. After all, who better to betray than your daughter?
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater: The worst kind of villain is someone you would never expect, even in your wildest nightmares. This villain tops that. No one would ever expect him and he's someone you would expect to protect people. Someone who should be the hero.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer: Ari is evil. And unfortunately for Cinder she's her stepmother. All Ari cares about is her own daughters, so she leaps at the chance to get rid of Cinder. Once and for all.
As Dead As It Gets by Katie Alender: What happens when there's an evil ghost attacking students? When you're her ulterior motive for these attacks? Or When you can't even ask for help because you'll be shipped off to the insane asylum? This is exactly what Alexis is dealing with. And exactly who she's trying to escape from.
What did you think? Yes, some of these people are the "heroes"... but it's of their own story. Sometimes heroes have enemies. Which makes them villains to those enemies. I hope that makes sense. Anyway, please comment so I know people are actually reading this and leave your links to your Top Ten. I'll be sure to check them out.
