We're not here to discuss Maleficent! Her story is too long and complicated to debate in the time we have left... Has anyone ever read a retelling and changed their opinion over a villain because of that? I love the stories from the villains point of view, to discover how they became evil. What is your favourite villain? Serena Valentino, Poor Unfortunate Soul: A Tale of the Sea Witch #bookishsummercourtjun19 : Sea Anenemy - best villain #candleloversjune19 : colours & candles #serenavalentino#poorunfortunatesoul#favevillain#booksandcandles #bookstagram #bookblogger #bookaddict #booklover #booknerd #bookdragon #bibliophile #bookchallenge #junechallenge #bookquotes #bookphotography
Wicked Wednesday calls for a book with multiple villains. Victor and Eli were once best friends and college roommates, until they begin conducting experiments that involve orchestrating near-death experiences to bring about superhero-like powers. This story, that begins with incredible Flatliners vibes, evolves into a cat and mouse game between Victor and Eli in which neither of them is innocent. Honestly one of the best books I've read recently, I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel, Vengeful, to see where the rivalry between Victor and Eli goes and how far each of them is willing to go to hurt the other. Who needs a friends to lovers trope when you have friends to enemies?
I love stories that allow you to see beyond the stereotype of hero/villain. In college I fell in love with Gregory Maguire’s storytelling as he told the stories we know from a different perspective. *Hint: He wrote Wicked.* 📖 Day 23 of #allthebooksmay19 is #favevillain but, who’s the villain in this story again?
It’s Wicked Wednesday. Who is your favourite villain? @jettefierce thought about this and looked through her bookshelf only to come up with a unique answer. Time. In Andy Weir’s The Martian, the villain is time, the driving force. This made it feel more intense since it was a notion and not a specific person you could aim your anger at. It pushed the story forward and left every page with a sense of worry and dread. Any great villains come to mind when you think about your favourite books?
Hey guys! Happy Saturday! I got all my work done, so I’m hoping to read Sky in the Deep today 😍 🖤 Today’s prompt for #yadiscordfeb was “most loved villain” and DOES ANYONE NEED TO ASK WHO I PICKED? 🖤 If I had my Last Jedi novelisation already I would have chosen Kylo, but I love me some Darkling! Leigh signed this book for me and gave me a Darkling quote to appease my obsession. 🖤 The Darkling candle from @novellyyours is AMAZING (I stg I’m just too obsessed with musky smells now) and I can’t wait to get a scent obsessions (22oz!!!) of this scent so I can burn it forever without fear. 🖤 Have an amazing day, guys :3
