Top Ten Book Villains

Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Top Ten Villains.

This post is all about those characters we love to hate. I had to cull through some of the books and series where the enemy was a group of people or the government so that I could choose the books that truly had individual characters as villains.

  1. Lord Voldemort from Harry Potter by JK Rowling
  2. Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
  3. Jackal & Octavia from Red Rising by Pierce Brown
  4. Cersei Lannister from A Song of Ice and Fire by George R R Martin
  5. Sebastian from The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
  6. Jonathan from The Breathing Series by Rebecca Donovan (not your typical villain, but man I hated that guy!)
  7. Billy Dent from Jasper Dent by Barry Lyga
  8. President Snow from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  9. The Darkling from The Grisha by Leigh Bardugo (note, I still haven't finished Ruin and Rising)
  10. Sauron from The Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien

There were so many villains to choose from. The hardest part was limiting myself and not including groups of people. Who made your list of top villains? Let me know!


  1. I think that's one of the main things that make him so creepy and awful. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  2. I completely agree. They are both "love to hate" characters. Thanks for stopping by and commenting Jane.

  3. I know, right? She's like the best of the best when it comes to villains. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
