TTT: Villains I Love/Hate


It’s Top Ten Tuesday, which is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the BookishToday is all about villains and you could really go with that whichever way you wanted. I was a bit torn, because sometimes giving away a villain, spoils the story, but I found a way that works for me. Also, indecisive as I am, I split the topic into villains I actually really like and the ones I cannot stand. Enjoy!

Villains I Love

Sebastian Morgenstern from the Mortal Instruments

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)I know that he’s psycho, but I cannot bring myself to dislike the guy and I have absolutely no explanation as to why. He’s also one of the characters I am most looking forward to appear on the Shadowhunters show. The casting for him won’t be easy and I want to see if they do such a magnificent job as they did with Alec or if they muck it up.

Holland from Shades of Magic

A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)Again, I can’t really explain this, but I do know that it happened more in the second book than it did in the first one. All of a sudden I started really sympathizing for him and feeling for him. If that happens, you know that you have found a good one.

Hollows from Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children

I just still want them as pets. It’s easy as that.

Jaime Lannister from A Song of Ice and Fire

This one is debatable I guess. Is Jaime really a villain? Probably not, but he’s also not the true hero. It always depends on who is telling the story, I suppose. I like him and I ship him with Brienne like crazy.

“Certain Someone” from the Red Queen Series

Red Queen (Red Queen, #1)Here’s where I can’t name names, because of spoilery reasons. However, I was surprised by the betrayal of that person and still did not dislike them. In contrary, their scenes were the ones I was looking forward to. I am crazy like that.

Villains I Hate

Amarantha from ACOTAR

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)Reading her backstory, I guess I can see why she chose the path she ultimately went on, but that lady was just plain cruel! I could practically feel the despair surrounding her.

The Jackal from Red Rising

Red Rising (Red Rising, #1)He’s so messed up, I wouldn’t even know where to begin. I don’t think he has one empathetic bone in his body. He’s calculating and ruthless and he’s the perfect guy you love to hate.

Mr. Moriarty from Lock & Mori

Lock & Mori (Lock & Mori, #1)I am not talking about James Moriarty, because if you’ve read the book, you know that Mori is a girl who just really hasn’t always had it easy. I blame her father for all of that! ALL of it!

Dillard Wayne Early Sr. from The Serpent King

The Serpent KingThat guy is just another example for bad parenting. He seriously gave me the creeps and he just wouldn’t accept that he did something wrong, which makes me so, so mad every time!

“Certain Someone” from This Savage Song

This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity, #1)Another person I cannot name by name, but they infuriated me from the very beginning. Their behaviour was way too self-rightious and they treated my baby August in a way that I simply could not stand. So, there’s that! No one is allowed to hurt my August!!

Who are some of your (least) favourite villains? Tell me all about it!

  1. I completely forgot about Sebastian! You aren’t the only one, I loved him too. Can’t explain why, except that I have a soft spot for bad boys haha And Jamie! I can’t wait to see where his character goes in the show (and books if Martin ever gets around to releasing the next one …) The way his reputation as Kingslayer precedes him everywhere he goes, without anyone questions why he killed Aerys is fascinating and so tragic.

    • I am glad I am not alone in this! And YES to finding out more about Jaime in the future! (although we will probably have more luck with the show than the books in the near future …)


  2. I would have to agree with your choice of Sebastian. I found myself rooting for the guy on multiple occasions. If they mess him up in the show, I will be so angry, but if they cast him as perfectly as they did with Alec, I will be so happy. I don’t like Jaime at all, but I’m just within the first 200 pages of the third book so that could change.

  3. AHH I LOVE SEBASTIAN TOO!! I mean, he’s kind of been totally ruined by his father, so he has reasons to be a complete psycho?!? (Valentine is also totally awful.) And I do like Holland…I feel bad for him. Like who wouldn’t be deranged if you had to be around the Danes for long?!? *shudders* AND I LIKE JAIME LANNISTER A LOT. Like I hated him….and then I liked him. And I ship him and Brienne so so much too but asking for them to get together nicely is probably asking too much of George RR Martin, isn’t it? 😭😭 Here’s my TTT!

    • Seems like we have a very similar taste of villains 😀 and I think I went through that process with Jaime as well. I could NOT stand the guy in the beginning, but now he is one of the few people I want to have safe and sound in the end. Asking George RR Martin of ANYTHING is only making it more likely that he’ll say no or kill someone I am afraid.


  4. Holland was so sad and so sympathetic! I feel like he’s a bit of a supporting character? Like, he does evil things to Kell and Lila, but I just can’t see him as evil because he does have his reasons.

    I also have the same feelings as you regarding Red Queen. 😛


  5. ARAMANTHA. OH MY GOSH was she evil! I definitely love to hate her!

    She was unlike any villian i’ve come across before, normally the bad guys in the books kill straight away she surely can do some torturing!
