Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. For this week’s list it’s all about the villains! I loved putting this list together. I love a bookish villain!
Voldemort and Dolores Umbridge- Harry Potter
Voldemort has to be one of the ultimate villains in children’s literature. He’s so evil, I love to hate him. Dolores Umbridge also drove me mad but I loved it. J.K. Rowling sure knows how to write a villain!
Miss Trunchbull- Matilda
I used to be terrified of Miss Trunchbull when I was younger. She scared my class too, but they loved it at the same time.
The Grand High Witch- The Witches
The Grand High Witch is such a fantastic character. I really wanted to read this book to my last class but I think it would have scared them.
Amy- Gone Girl
Amy is a messed up character. She freaked me but I LOVED it.
The White Witch- The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
Ooh, The White Witch was evil and powerful. Loved to read about her.
Mrs Danvers- Rebecca
I found Mrs Danvers to be so creepy. She got under my skin.
Queen Levana- The Lunar Chronicles
Love Queen Levana. I felt like Fairest helped to get to know the character more. I think she’s a fantastic villain.
President Snow- The Hunger Games
You have to have a great villain in a series like The Hunger Games. I think President Snow was a perfect villain.
Ty got under my skin because he was so awful yet somehow you ended up feeling sorry for him? How does that work!?
Who are your favourite villains? Feel free to leave a link to your Top Ten post and I’ll stop by!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. I got really stuck with the prompt today, so I decided to put my own spin on it and write about ten characters I love to hate!
Bella Swan– Twilight– I can’t help but enjoy complaining about Bella. She’s just so dull and moany. I don’t think I ever identified with her when reading Twilight. I don’t think I ever will like her!
Dolores Umbridge– Harry Potter-Ooh, she’s a bad one. I loved hating Umbridge. She made my skin crawl.
Voldemort– Harry Potter– He truly is one of my favourite villains. I adore hating him.
Lucius Malfoy– Harry Potter– Lucius is a great character to hate. He’s smarmy and irritating.
President Snow– The Hunger Games– As you might have guessed by now, I do love to hate a villain and in The Hunger Games it was President Snow who I loved to hate.
Estella Havisham– Great Expectations– Miss Havisham is a pretty good character to hate as well, but I loved to hare Estella more. Her attitude towards men was despicable and I hated the way she treated Pip!
Amy Dunne– Gone Girl– I’m always surprised how strongly I hate Amy. She is one of the best written characters in a thriller. It’s weirdly fun yet equally creepy to be her mind or at least try and understand her.
Amy March– Little Women– Amy always irritates me. She’s so selfish. Yet I don’t mind reading about her selfishness.
Daniel Cleaver– Bridget Jones’ Diary– He’s a player. He’s horrible. However he’s fun to read about and I can’t help but love to hate him!
Holden Caulfield– The Catcher In The Rye-I definitely have a love/hate relationship with Holden Caulfield. I find him insufferable, but at the same time love him for it!
Who made your list this week? Feel free to leave a link to your post and I’ll stop by!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are our Top Ten Favourite Heroines From Books. I have completed a list similar to this before with strong female leads, but I’ve added some new additions since then. So here is my revised list in no particular order…
(Book images go to Goodreads!)
Jo March- Little Women –
She doesn’t conform to the ‘usual’ female roles. One of my favourite characters in literature!
Katniss- The Hunger Games-
Strong in every possible way!
Definitely her own person. Very headstrong.
Matilda- Matilda by Roald Dahl
She faces awful parents and a terrible headteacher. I love the little bookworm that is Matilda!
Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny- The Help
I absolutely love these ladies from The Help. I especially admire Skeeter for trying to make a difference.
Juliette- Shatter Me trilogy
Juliette’s strength as a person grows so much throughout the series!
Celaena Sardothien- Throne Of Glass-
She’s a kick ass book loving character!
A fiesty and intelligent character!
Poppy Sinclair- Dead Jealous/Dead Silent-
Likeable and real!
Rowan- Me Since You
A heroine in different ways to others in this list. Strong despite terrible things happening to her.
Who are your favourites? Feel free to leave a link to your posts!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us to complete. This week the list is the Top Ten Characters that we wish would get their OWN book. This was quite a tricky list for me, but here is what I have come up with.

Luna Lovegood- Harry Potter- What’s not to love about Luna? I’d definitely want to hear more from her side of the story, no matter how strange it may be!
Neville Longbottom– Harry Potter- I always wonder what the story would’ve been like from Neville’s point of view!
Kenjii– Shatter Me trilogy- I absolutely love Kenjii and would love to know more about him.
Cinna- The Hunger Games- Such a fabulous character!
Tris’s mum- Divergent- I loved Tris’s mum. She’s an amazing, strong character.
Wendy– Unearthly- I would have liked to have learnt more about Clara’s friend Wendy!
Daniel– Mara Dyer- Mara’s brother Daniel was so protective over her! I’d love to know more about what’s going on in his head!
Iko– The Lunar Chronicles- Yes, I’m totally putting her on my list. I loved Iko. I would love to see more from her!
Toby– Geek Girl- Toby is a great character. I thought he was adorable!
Susannah- The Summer I Turned Pretty- Susannah may not be there in all of the books, but she’s definitely want brings the families together.
So who would you like to have a book of their own! Let me know in the comments or feel free to leave a link to your posts and I’ll stop by!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us to complete. This week’s list is a back to school theme with Top Ten Book Characters That Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table. I’ve had to really think about this topic as there are so many characters in books that I LOVE but I’m not sure I’d actually want to sit with them at lunch. You know the sorts…evil characters in literature that you love to hate, but you’d hate to actually know.
So in no particular order here are my choices:
Luna Lovegood- Harry Potter- I know she might irritate some, but I really think I’d get on with her!
Sirius Black- Harry Potter– We’re pretending that I’d sit with a wide range of ages during lunch and that this was before the third book! 😉 I think Sirius would be fascinating to talk to!
Dean Holder- Losing Hope/Hopeless– I absolutely adored Dean. He’s such a thoughtful and considerate character.
Atticus Finch– To Kill A Mockingbird– Again, I’m forgetting about age of the characters here, and instead thinking what a fascinating conversation I could have with Atticus Finch!
Rue- The Hunger Games– Aw, she’s just adorable!
Anna- Anna And The French Kiss– I think Anna is a great character, because she’s not perfect. She’s the kind of friend you’d want!
Reagan and Lilah- Open Road Summer- I absolutely loved the friendship between Reagan and Lilah and wouldn’t mind being one of their gang!
Micah- The Art Of Lainey– Micah is an easy to adore character, confident within himself but in a funny way.
Parker- Golden– Parker makes mistakes, but is an incredibly relatable character.
So who would you have on your lunch table? Feel free to leave your links to your Top Ten posts and I’ll stop by. Good luck for the school year if you’re back at school (whether working or attending) or have started back this week!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us to complete. This week the topic is Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island (pick based on however you want…skills they would bring, their company…or pure hotness factor :P)
So here are mine in no particular order! My deserted island would certainly be an interesting one with these characters. Would they clash? Would they get on? Who knows!
Katniss Everdeen– The Hunger Games– For obvious reasons. I’m pretty sure she’s going to be on a LOT of people’s lists this week.
Cinder– The Lunar Chronicles- Purely for her strength and general awesomeness!
Juliette– Shatter Me– I think it would be pretty interested to see how she interacted with Katniss and Cinder.
Dean Holder– Hopeless/Losing Hope– I connected with his character so much through Hopeless and Losing Hope, so he just needs to be with me really.
Hermione Granger and Luna Lovegood- Harry Potter– I bet Hermione would know some amazing spells to help us through. I think Luna is an amazing character and I’d find her fascinating.
Poppy Sinclair and her boyfriend Michael– Dead Jealous/Dead Silent- I think I’d get on really well with Poppy and her boyfriend, so they’re welcome to join me!
Nimira and Erris- Magic Under Glass– Both adorable characters. I’d love to know more about them.
What characters would you want on a deserted island with you? Have we got any the same this week? Let me know! Feel free to leave a link to your Top Ten post and I’ll stop by!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the brilliant The Broke and The Bookish. They come up with a list weekly, for us to complete. This week’s list is Top Ten Most Memorable Secondary Characters. This took a lot of thinking but I’ve finally come up with 10. I’m so intrigued to see what other bloggers come up with this week!
In no particular order here are my top ten most memorable secondary characters!
Rue– The Hunger Games– I thought Rue was adorable. She was small, young and underestimated. She survived for a lot longer than people had expected. I also loved her friendship with Katniss.
Cinna– The Hunger Games- Cinna was Katniss Everdeen’s stylist. I thought he was a fabulous character.
Sadie– Twenties Girl- I love a bit of chick-lit every now and again and Sophie Kinsella is one of my favourite authors of that genre. In this book Sadie is a spirit, the great-aunt of the protagonist. Sadie was such a great character.
Suze– Confessions of A Shopaholic/The Secret Dreamworld of A Shopaholic- Suze is the best friend of the protagonist. She’s a brilliant character. I’d like her to be my friend!
The next two characters are from Harry Potter.
Luna Lovegood and Neville Longbottom– Harry Potter series– I really loved this characters. Especially Luna. She’s just so quirky!
Kenji Kishimoto- Shatter Me and Unravel Me -A great secondary character.
Tris’s Mum– Divergent- I absolutely loved Tris’s mum. Such a wonderful character.
Wendy– Unearthly- I really liked Clara’s friend Wendy. It was a shame there wasn’t much of her in Boundless!
Daniel- The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer- I really liked Mara’s older brother Daniel. I loved how protective he was!
