For those of you who voted on my Ramble #16 Poll, first of all thank you and second of all here you have the winner post! I present you the very first edition of my top 5 favourite villains of all times!
NUMBER FIVE: SEBASTIAN MORGENSTERN
From the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.
Sebastian would never have made it to this list had not my feeling towards him changed radically after I finished City of Heavenly Fire, TMI‘s last book. Only then did I start seeing him for the lost boy he truly was, the lost Jonathan, someone who could have been a sweet brother, son and friend. But due to having an ambicious father ended up having his life ruined from the day he was born.
From Blueeyed Boy by Joanne Harris.
B. B. is the type of character that stays with you, no matter what. I read this book a long time ago, I only remeber bits of the story but I will never be able to shake the feeling I get when I think about B. B…. It probably helped that I read this when I was younger and thought it would be a cute novel instead of the phsycological thriller it is. Regardless, congratulations for the excellent excellent character Joanne Harris!
NUMBER THREE: THE BASILISK
From the Harry Potter saga by J. K. Rowling.
I bet you didn’t see this one coming, did you? You were expecting Voldemort or Bellatrix, weren’t you? Well none of those two gave me the creeps everytime I had to leave the bathroom when I was little. But this big guy did! After Moaning Myrtle’s story I always closed my eyes when I had to open the bathroom door, and this lasted one whole year! Now googling the image I still got the chills looking into his eyes…
NUMBER TWO: REBECCA DE WINTER
From Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.
I read this book as a young girl because, as you can imagine, I was super curious to find out what the book with my name was about. Well, I really liked the book Rebecca but I really hated the character Rebecca, which left me quite disappointed at the time. Rebecca de Winter was one of the first unbelievably mean book characters I was introduced to. A classic villain!
From Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.
Amy’s character scared the hell out of me. Seriously. For real!!! How can someone be this… this… I DON’T EVEN HAVE A WORD FOR IT! Just staring at her gives me the crreps… (Side note: If you haven’t read Gone Girl go do it now. Noooow! Unless you don’t like being scared… in that case stay away.)
Two things: firstly, this images are not mine (obviously) and if you click on them a new window will appear taking you to the website I took each of them from. Secondly, I feel like this list could be a lot better if I just stopped being lazy and started reading more Stephen King and Gillian Flynn like I’ve been intending to…
