Some of My Favorite Villains I Read in 2020
I read so many amazing books in 2020 with their amazing fantasy book worlds and their passionate and loveable characters. Yes, I love all the heroines and their dashing partners in crime, but I found the villains fascinating and loveable as well. I’ve always found villains in books and movies some of the most interesting characters because I always want to know why. Why do they do the things they do and how did they turn out this way? Here is a list of some of my favorite villains and why they are so intriguing to me.
Aidan from The Illuminate Files
So there has been some debate about whether or not this character is a villain or not. Some may call him an anti-hero and some might even consider him a villain, but the truth is, he is a villain. He did unspeakable things for selfish reasons that he believed would be for the greater good in his warped mind. I might have believed people who don’t think he is a villain if I had not read, Memento. That small novella changed my entire perspective on him because of that one little problem he discusses with one of the characters. He took a theory, warped it, and used it for his own devices thus making him a villain. However, just because he is a villain, it doesn’t mean I love him any less. He is such a dynamic and passionate character and I only wanted more of him as the story went on. He may be a villain, but he is a great one.
Greed from The Kingdom of the Wicked
You thought I was going to say Wrath right? WRONG! I mean don’t get me wrong, I love Wrath and everything, but he is not a true villain. Greed is one of the main villains in this book and he was so fascinating to me! I mean I am a sucker for a book that portrays the seven deadly sins as characters and this book hit it out of the water. Greed was a mystery to me and I wanted to find out more about him. I hope he plays a bigger role in the next book (if I have to wait any longer for this book I might die) He was such a charming motherf**ker and I didn’t understand how Emilia could resist him.
Victor from Vicious
So this book was crazy good mostly due to the fact of Victor! Victor is such a dynamic character and nothing like you would picture as someone who is a villain. He just reminded me a lot of the main character in the book, The Count of Monte Cristo because he only wants to seek his revenge on those who have wronged him. I mean if that character was also similar to a mad scientist and someone who was obsessed with being the center of attention. He is really a villain in a book world full of them and I enjoyed reading his point of view a lot more than his supposed hero like partner.
Luc from The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue
This book is such a sad and beautiful book that makes you appreciate memories and your life. However, the most interesting and intriguing part of the entire book was LUC! Omg the demon in black can just steal my heart away and I don’t even care. A lot of the relationship between Addie and Luc was a reason I kept reading because I wanted to devour everything about it. It trumped the love story between Addie and Henry by FAR. The relationship dynamic seemed more passionate and strong as opposed to Addie and Henry which was just SO bland. So Luc is my favorite, feel free to judge me.
Sea Queen from To Kill a Kingdom
The Sea Queen in this book was just soooooooooo GOOD! I loved her so much because she just was so EVIL in every traditional sense of the word. UGH she was just so vicious that you loved to hate her. That girl went through some STUFF in her life to make her turn out that way. I just have to know how you could do any of the things she did to her own DAUGHTER. Girl was crazy and I loved it!
