This super fun tagged was created by Lashaan and Trang over @Bookidote!! Go check them out!
I was tagged by the ever lovely and amazing Orangutan Librarian – check out their blog, its one of my favorites!
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I LOVE villains. I’m fond of villain redemptions stories, and antiheroes tend to be some of my favorite characters. So this tag is great!
- Pick 5+ villains and wonder what books they are most likely to read (feel free to use our villains or find new ones!)
- Nominate bloggers! As many as you want!
- Have fun in the world of villainy!
–1. Catwoman – Six of Crows
Its about criminals, but criminals who aren’t bad people and can be redeemed and fin love along the way (from what I’ve heard at least) – she’d love it.
–2. Dracula – Twilight
I don’t think he’d pick this one up on his own. Someone would give it to him as a joke to horrify him and he’d keep reading because he’d be entertained by how wrong the 21st century is about vampires. It’d be his guilty pleasure read.
–3. The Joker – The Book Thief
This book is about the depths of human depravity (holocaust) from the view of death himself. The Joker would love this.
–4. Moriarty – Murder on the Orient Express
He’d be a fan of mystery novels I think.
–5. Voldemort – They Called Themselves the K.K.K.: The Birth of an American Terrorist Group
(yes, I did straight up google KKK books, why would I know this off the top of my head?)
I didn’t want to repeat any of the (marvelous) answers I’d seen before (like Mein Krampf) but similarly, since Voldemort is all about that racial purity, I thought he might want to see how even the muggle accomplished it.
-6. Loki – War of the Worlds
He’d enjoy living vicariously through “aliens destroying earth” stories.
-7. Dr. Horrible – Vicious
Dr. Horrible would relate so hard Victor Vale – both villains, neither a bad person, both hate the so-called hero who is dating the girl they like… It works!
-8. Hades – Percy Jackson
I think he’d enjoy reading his own story – if only to complain about everything thats “wrong” and how under appreciated he is. He’s a drama queen.
The first 5 are the same villains as the original. I added the last three for fun. Feel free to use them!
What do you think of my answers?
Do you agree?
