The Best Villains
The first one that jumps to mind is, of course, Bellatrix. I’m basically obsessed with her, everything she does is fabulous. Sure, she’s a villainous murderer, but what can you do, right?
I’m also a big fan of the unexpected villain, like in Gone Girl (I won’t say who), or Celaena from Throne of Glass a-kind-of-evil protagonist.
Who are your favourite villains? Do you fall in love with them like me, or do you actually hate them like you’re supposed to?
I don’t know that I have a favorite, but Bellatrix is an interesting one for sure. Lada from And I Darken is one of my favorite antiheroes (I’m not quite sure if she’s villainous), or maybe Adelina from The Young Elites (though I’m not quite to her badness going part yet but oh boy is it coming).
I agree with the Gone Girl assessment. Geez was that an evil one. O.o

I haven’t read either of those, but I love a good villain, so I think I better! And oh man, Gone Girl, I can’t deal…
