Top Ten Tuesday: A Variety of Villains

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. You can find a list of topics for each week at That Artsy Reader Girl if you’d like to join in! This week’s theme is villains.

My list of villains is a bit random, but here are some of the book characters that terrify me…

TTT Villains

1.Tywin Lannister 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still enjoying A Saga of Ice and Fire, but I really feel it’s missing a proper villain, now that he’s gone. He was just really good and selfish and scheming. Also, Charles Dance played him in the TV series, which made him extra super specially wise and cunning.

2.Mr. Tulkinghorn

Charles Dickens’s Bleak House is haunted by the presence of this scheming gentleman. Oh, and he was also played by Charles Dance in the TV series. Coincidence? I think not.

3. Morgan Le Fay

She’s a seductive shapeshifter. She can sometimes outwit Merlin. She scares me.


TTT Villains (2)

4. Bellatrix Lestrange

Maybe you don’t feel scared of her, but I do. She killed Sirius, who was one of my absolute favourites…

5. Kurtz

I’m not really sure, he strictly speaking counts as a villain, but he definitely shows how far a human being can sink.


TTT Villains (4)

6. The Summoning Dark

One of the most terrifying villains written by Terry Pratchett. I was also afraid of the dark as a child. So doubly scary.

7. The narrator of the Aspern Papers 

Okay, he’s not a straightforward villain, but he’s downright creepy and I hate him.


TTT Villains (6)

8. Lheroux

Okay, he is definitely a villain. Like a vampire or a leech, he just sucks all the money out of poor Emma.

9. Long John Silver

Well, I was both scared of Long John Silver, and secretly thought he was one of the best pirate characters ever. So there. A good note to end this list on.


Were you ever scared or fond of any of those villains?
