Top Ten Tuesday | Favorite Villains of All Time

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018!

Villains, the characters we love to hate, or hate to love… let’s be real! I feel like I normally always end up liking the villain a little bit more than I should. I’m going to be vague about a couple of these, because I don’t want to ruin any storylines for you, but here is a list of my top ten favorite villains of all time! 👻

➽ The Traitor Baru Cormorant (The Masquerade #1) by Seth Dickinson

I’m still crying…

➽ Shadow and Bone (The Grisha Trilogy #1) by Leigh Bardugo

Like I could make a list of favorite villains and not take it as an opportunity to talk about how much of Darkling trash I am?

➽ The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) by Holly Black

This twist still takes my breath away.

➽ Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton

What kind of list would this be without an actual Devil?

➽ Senlin Ascends (The Books of Babel #1) by Josiah Bancroft

The most badass villain of all-time? An actual tower!

➽ The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth #1) by N.K. Jemisin

Oh wait! The most badass villain to ever exist is actually the Earth!

➽ Traitor’s Blade (Greatcoats #1) by Sebastien de Castell

Duke Jillard of Rijou will forever have my heart.

➽ Mistborn (Mistborn #1) by Brandon Sanderson

I actually loved the Lord Ruler as a villain, but I really want to pick Odium!

➽ A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1) by George R.R. Martin

Cersei Lannister will forever be my favorite villain of all-time.

➽ Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

I couldn’t compile a list of villains and not mention Voldemort. Let’s be real.

Okay, friends! That’s it! I hope you enjoyed! Please let me know who some of your favorite villains are! Or your absolute favorite! I hope you’re all having a wonderful week, filled with the spookiest seasonal vibes! Happy reading! 🎃

  1. Good list! I started The Traitor Baru Cormorant and got distracted by something else, I should really get back to it. And I’ve been looking forward to reading Mistborn, really need to get around to that!

  2. I feel like I should give The Cruel Prince another chance. SO many people are raving about this vague twist you speak of 😉 Voldemort is a given on any list! Great list.
