Book Blooger Hop: 4-8 March 2011

Book Blogger Hop As the weekend approaches, it's time for another Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books. This week's question comes from Mia who blogs at Girl About Books: “Who's your all-time favorite book villain?”

Hmmmm... I'm not sure about a “favorite” villain. By definition, a villain isn't someone you're likely to favor—he (or she) is the bad guy. I can't think of a villain that I can claim as a favorite at all.

Jennifer, however, mentioned Gretchen Lowell from Heartsick by Chelsea Cain. While I cannot claim Gretchen as a favorite villain, she is likely to be the most memorable villain of any that I have encountered in my reading. So much so that I don't think I can face the prospect of reading any more books in the series. Heartsick was the most disturbing book I have ever read. (And no, I haven't read Silence of the Lambs and I don't intend to!)

So, even though I couldn't come up with an answer to the question as it was posed, it was definitely one that made me think.


  1. Just hopping by from the blog hop. There's so many villains out there that it's hard to pick just 1.

  2. Picking a villain is tough! It took me way longer than I want to admit LOL Hop by and see my pick if you want ;)

  3. Coming through on the blog hop. Picking a villain is not as easy as it seems.

  4. stopping by on the blog hop, come by and see mine.

  5. Just stopping by to share some Friday. Don't forget to join in the current Read My Review which has a Worldwide theme (see the link at the top of my blog). Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Hi, just hopping on through. Funny you should mention Silence of the Lambs, I chose Hannibal Lecter as my fave villain!

  7. My favorite book villain is, hands down, is the Napoleon of crime -
    Professor James Moriarty.

    It took me less than ten seconds to come up with my answer. But you'll
    never guess why.
