Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome people over at The Broke and the Bookish
Lol! I love the term "asshat" and I'm glad that I'm not the only one who uses this term. I'm gonna go with jerks in books rather than "villains." These are in no order.
1. Snape from Harry Potter:
Uhhh yeah... Snape is awesome.
2. The mom from Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma:
I wanted to kill her through the whole book. Stupid drunken gross neglectful *goes on for about another 20 words* mother. Ughhhhhhhhh
3. Al from the Hollows:
hahahah if you've read this series, you know what I mean. (Yes, a Kim Harrison character has to be on every single one of my lists. It's like an unwritten rule).
4. Will from Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare:
When I went to the Cassie Clare signing, I was the only person to be Team Will with the first 40 people. I thought that was odd. I adore this jerk. I adore both of Cassie's leading men even if they are jerks.
5. The Grandparents from The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein:
These people were sooooooo frustrating! I wanted to slap them the whole time. Ughhh
6. Archer from Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins:
I don't know why I love the bad boys and the jerks so much in books when I hate them so much in real life. But I am definitely Team Archer.
7. Rowan from the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa:
He kills one brother, tries to kill the other, tries to take over all of the Nevernever, oh, and gives Megan food that makes her say everything out loud. Bad Rowan, Bad!
8. Erlking from Shadowspell by Jenna Black:
I can't wait to see what happens in the next book in this series just because I'm fascinated by the Erlking. He's a human hunter who either hunts people down and kills them or tricks them into joining his group, where they will forever live without talking and doing his bidding. Yikes...
9. Nick from the Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan:
I love how he doesn't understand any human emotions what so ever, yet he does everything to save his brother. He's one of those characters that is fascinating to see them learn and grow and change through the whole book.
10. Haymitch from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins:
I think I can honestly say that this is the only drunk in a series that I actually like. Sure he's a jerk, but living his life I honestly don't blame him. Plus, he needs to be in order to help keep Peeta and Katniss alive, which is his job anyways.
11. Captain Hook from Peter Pan:
Have to add him. All he wants is to be loved! Yet all he is is old and alone and donefore. Sadness.
Next weeks top ten is Minor characters you love.
