I saw this tag on Little Dutch Bookshop blog and I really liked the questions so I decided to do it.
I have done everything in my power not to include spoilers…so, enjoy!
Maleficent: A book or book series in which there is an overwhelming sense of evil/doom
For this one I just have to choose “A Series of Unfortunate Events” by Lemony Snicket because Count Olaf represents the nightmare for every kid. He is the Devil in disguise.
The Evil Queen: A book or book series in which the villain tricks the hero
I’m choosing “The Daylight War” by Peter V. Brett where the characters of the book have to deal with some really nasty demons which can transform into humans. If you have not read “The Demon Cycle” series, you should because it’s brilliant.
Cruella de Vil: A book or book series in which the villain brings about their own demise
As strange as this may be, I choose “Maleficent” by Elizabeth Rudnick. Stefan – aka Aurora’s dad, was neither the smartest, nor the best character in the world and his cowardice leads him to not a very happy ending.
Ursula: A book or book series that left you speechless
That will be “The Giver” by Lois Lowry. I just can’t even imagine living in that messed up world where there is no love, no colors, no sexual desire, no real pleasure…there is just no real joy in life.
Jafar: A book or book series in which the villain almost wins
For this one I’m choosing the “Shadowdance” series by David Dalglish because my favorite characters were almost killed at least a dozen of times…by the villains, cause he's not just one.
Hades: A book or book series you can’t help but love the villain
Again, this might be a really strange choice, but I choose “07-Ghost” by Yuki Amemiya and Yukino Ichihara. I just love Ayanami’s character – he is pure evil.
Scar: A book or book series with familial betrayal
This spot is saved for “The 10th Kingdom” by Kathryn Wesley and I can’t say while because I will spoil the whole book. But it’s like the betrayal of betrayals, believe me.
Hans: A book or book series with a villain you didn’t see coming
I just couldn’t think of anyone that fits into this category more perfectly then Sebastian Morgenstern from “The Mortal Instruments” series by Cassandra Clare. I know he is probably everyone’s choice but…oh, well…
This tag was actually really fun so if anyone wants to do it or have already done it, please share a link in the comments cause I’m curious to check out your picks!
