Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!!!!!

Day 3 of Top 10 of 2014
(Hosted by Two Chicks On Books)
  • Jonathan Wolverton Randall from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Absolutely ruthless and a very very nasty villain. Complex character, it would have been great to read even more about his background, family, childhood etc.

Goodreads | Amazon
  • The Phantom from The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
The mystery around his person draws the reader in. He is very elegant physically as well as in his actions; his dramatic entries and sudden exits are the coolest things. What a sad fate he had though...

Goodreads | Amazon
  • ... from Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman /Spoiler warning! - highlight the text below only if you've read the book or haven't but not planning to/
The Angel Islington
What a twist that was... I like those stories in which you don't know that the villain is the villain.

Goodreads | Amazon
  • Charlene Perez from Entangled by Nikki Jefford
Evil twin sister. One of the worst kind of villains.

Goodreads | Amazon
  • Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
I love Heathcliff and I feel for him. Yes, he becomes an intolerable brute towards the end of the book, but there are reasons why that happens. He was dark and vehement even in the beginning but he turned bitter only after losing Cathy...

Goodreads | Amazon
  •  John from Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton
Would you like to know why? Read my review of Seeker here.

Goodreads | Amazon
  • Valentine Morgenstern from City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
I like how manipulative he is and also that he is fighting for a cause he thinks is noble. 'Every villain is a hero in his own mind', right?

Goodreads | Amazon
  • Lady Stoneheart from A Storm of Swords/A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin /Spoiler warning! - highlight the first two words below only if you've read the book or haven't but not planning to/
Zombie Catelyn is creepy beyond words. I was getting goosebumps whenever I read a chapter she was in.

Goodreads | Amazon
  • Belial from Angelfall by Susan Ee
Yep, that demonic wing-thief made my list as well...

Goodreads | Amazon
  • Dracula from Dracula, My Love by Syrie James
Although the original Dracula tops the Dracula in this book, I liked this one too. Syrie James's vampire is a deceiver and he is really good at sweet talk.
