Today is Halloween and to keep to the spirt, we thought it would be only right to do a spooky themed book tag. Whilst searching the internet for a good tag, I stumbled across this one and it sounded fab and had some great questions. Plus, who doesn’t love a good old fashioned disney villain!
Maleficent: A book or book series in which there is an overwhelming sense of evil/doom
Amy: I find that post-apocalyptic books tend to have the most amount of doom and sometimes evil but if I had to pick one it would have to be the ‘Angelfall’ Series by Susan Ee thanks to all of it’s evil monsters and how depressing the world has become.
Eleanor: I’m going to go a little controversial here and say The Hunger Games and the overwhelming evil being President Snow and the Capitol.
The Evil Queen (Snow White): A book or book series in which the villain tricks the hero
Amy: Voldemort always tends to trick Harry like with the Cup in the Goblet of Fire being a portkey and leading poor Harry and Cedric into a trap!
Eleanor: I’m going to say the thing that happens at the end of Red Queen (I’m just going to say that because I don’t want to spoil it, but people who have read the book will know what I mean…)
Cruella de Vil: A book or book series in which the villain brings about their own demise
Amy: I’d pick ‘Valentine’ from The Mortal Instruments as his thirst for power which leads him to his downfall.
Eleanor: I’m going to say Mr Harvey in the Lovely Bones! He certainly deserved all that happened to him, and he definitely caused his own demise!!
Ursula: A book or book series that left you speechless
Amy: It would have to be my favourite series (which if you’ve been following our blog for a while would have already guessed!) the ‘Throne of Glass Series’ I swear every chapter leaves me speechless. It is a wonderful series which I highly recommend to everyone!
Eleanor: I’m going to day Red Queen I could speak for days after finishing that book and it left me a state contemplating humanity!
Jafar: A book or book series in which the villain almost wins
Amy: A Court of Thorns and Roses as you could say that Rysand does win as he gets what he wants. He is another villain that I love!
Eleanor: Jonathan Morganstern (Sebastian) in the Mortal Instruments, that was a close one!
Hades: A book or book series in which you can’t help but love the villain
Amy: The Darkling. He just so gorgeous and even after all of his cruel and evil actions, I can’t hate him!
Eleanor: You’ve just got to love Rysand from A Court Of Thorns And Roses, I have a real soft spot for him!
Scar: A book or book series with familial betrayal
Amy: For this one I’m going to pick ‘Insurgent’ and ‘Allegiant’ by Veronica Roth as Caleb betrays Tris. He is now one of my most hated characters ever.
Eleanor: I’m going to say the end of Heir of Fire, the third Throne of Glass book! Some serious Daddy issues there!!
Hans: A book or book series with a villain you didn’t see coming
Amy: This was one of the easiest questions to answer and it would have to be Maven from Red Queen. When I found out I literally had a fit and in my opinion it is the best plot twist ever!!!
Eleanor: Same ^^ I was left stunned, I literally couldn’t operate for days!
