The 5 Literary Villains You'd Like to Read an Entire Book About

Sunday Fun Five #58:

A Countdown of

The 5 Literary Villains You'd Like to Read an Entire Book About

5. President Snow of The Hunger Games trilogy
So you're the megalomaniac president of a dysfunctional dystopian society. Other than reading up on Donald Trump's origin story, I just don't have quite the imagination to figure out how he got there. And also, why would you want to be in that position anyway?

4. Eli of Vicious by V.E. Schwab
We get snippets about Eli, but it's always from Victor's perspective. Could a book from Eli's point of view change the plot completely?

3. Prince Regal of The Farseer Trilogy
Other than being the third (overambitious) son, Regal really doesn't have much reason to do what he does. Is there another reason that drives him so, or is he just another Donald Trump anomaly?

2. Roland, of the Kate Daniels series
Roland looms large throughout the now eight books, despite not being directly involved in every event of the series, which is now nearing its end (or so I presume). Something about Roland just makes you want to know more about him, even if he is magically scary.

1. Voldemort AKA He Who Must Not Be Named, of the Harry Potter series
Although you get a few snippets of Voldemort's life from the Harry Potter books, I've never quite been satisfied with those choice morsels the author threw our way. I would love to see more of Voldemort's perspective, especially when he was younger.

Which literary villains would you like to learn more about?


  1. I would love to see a Voldy book! In the same vein, although I do not consider him a villain, but continue to see blog posts pop up with titles such as: Why I Still Hate Snape; I would love to have an entire book about Severus. Maybe some in depth backstory would change those people's minds. :)

    1. I can't imagine believing Snape is a villain if you've actually read the last book. It's pretty clear from what J.K. Rowling did with Snape, and how she informed Alan Rickman of how to act as Snape that she didn't intend him to be a "true" villain. But I agree, I'd like a Snape book too.

  2. Voldemort would make my list. He's such an interesting character, isn't he? His path could have been so much different had his childhood (pre-Dumbldore) been different.

    1. Yes, I agree! I think, despite his "evilness" there's something beneath that facade that would be interesting to read about. Also, you'd get to see more about Dumbledore too, that way.
