Top 5 Tuesday: Villains that are more interesting than the hero

Top 5 Tuesday (1)

Today is Tuesday so that means another Top 5 Tuesday! I don’t think I posted ANY last week *sobs*. I did have my Top 5 Tuesday wrote out and almost finished but somehow didn’t find the time to actually post it. So with that being said next week I will be posting last weeks topic that I missed because I liked it.

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. Here is the list for the August Topics.

1) The Darkling: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and Bone (Grisha Verse, #1)

This one is a given. I wish the series were more focused on him because the rest of the characters besides Nikolai are kind of boring. Which I do need to finish the third book *sigh*.

2) Cardan: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air, #1)

We all know Cardan is a bully but I just like his character better than Jude. By the end of the book I was thinking, who is the real villain here? I can’t wait to read The Wicked King.

3) Maven: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen (Red Queen, #1)

I did enjoy all these characters. But my heart just keeps pulling at Maven. I know he is evil but there is just something about him. I haven’t read past book two so I don’t even know how his story plays out. I could hate him but for now I don’t.

4) Reed Royal: Paper Princess by Erin Watt

Paper Princess (The Royals, #1)

Reed will always and forever be one of my favorite characters. I truly adore him. *heart eyes* He is such a jerk in the beginning. I mean major jerk but finally comes around. I like Ella just as good but Reed has to be mentioned on this list.

5) Morpheus: Splintered by A.G. Howard

Splintered (Splintered, #1)

My baby Morpheus. He seems to have some sketchy motives for a long while. You don’t really know who’s side is he on until his story gets revealed. I loved him from the beginning. Gosh, how I loved him. And still do. Alyssa was decent but he made the story.

Honorable mentions:

Jest: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Legend: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

The Goblin King: Wintersong by S Jae-Jones (He doesn’t want to be the bad guy but he has to be)

So maybe not all of these are true villains but they can be cunning, deceiving, and rude. All the aspects I enjoy in a character. This weeks topic should have been Crystal’s Top 5 Book Crushes (Minus Rhysand).
