Q. Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one??

Seriously, I don't think I can answer this one. I've been browsing my books and my Goodreads list, and none come to mind. Sometimes I might like a villain, but always I find myself cheering for the heroes. Tessa Gratton's Blood Magic is something like this. I love Josephine, as a character. Bitch is crazy as, and she leapt off the page! But I never, ever wanted her to win. There's also the times the villain changes somehow to become more of 'the good guy'. Here I'm thinking of someone like Eric from the Sookie Stackhouse series...or well, True Blood, as I have yet to read the books. Seems a villain to begin with but not so much these days, yeah?

Not a very inspiring answer! I guess my answer is simply no, I haven't ever wanted a villain to win!

  1. I love Eric :D in both the books and the tv series! Great answer.

    I'm an old follower! :D

  2. Eric is an outstanding choice! He is SO BAD that he is just good. :) I am a new follower.

  3. Ha ha. I love your answer. I love that you "rambled" (not really) and then just said no. That's how I felt about this question too.

  4. This is such a hard question, I can never manage to vote for the bad guy. I LOVE your header, so cute!

  5. I absolutely love Eric! I agree with you - this is a very hard question to answer!

    I'm a new follower :)

  6. Great answer! I always root for the good guys to win!

    My Follow Friday!

  7. I think it is a good sign that Josephine was a character that you were interested in reading about but that didn't mean you wanted her to win. Kudos to the author because that is not always an easy balancing act.


  8. I don't really think I would want a villain to win, but it's nice when they come close, and then lose.

  9. @Jules How can you not love Eric, right? ;-)

    Thanks for commenting!

  10. @Lisa (Lisa's World of Books) Yes, exactly! You can't help but love him! :-D

    Thanks heaps for following!

  11. @Jenni Elyse Lol! Oh, I rambled. I always do! :-D It just didn't seem enough to simply say no!

    Thanks for stopping by, Jenni!

  12. @Sarah Hi Sarah!

    It was a hard question, especially for those of us who could really only answer no! I can't imagine not cheering for the good guys, honestly. :-D

    Thanks so much for following!

  13. @Chrissie @ Once Upon a Series How can you not love Eric, right? He's a mix of good and bad...and hot! ;-)

    Thanks for following!

  14. @Tia Thanks, Tia! Would make for an interesting read if I wasn't rooting for the good guys! Maybe one day it'll happen. Probably not. Haha!

  15. @Shanan, The Book Addict Yes, definitely, Shanan! Sometimes the villain can come across as more frustrating than interesting, you know? Gratton earns major points for Josephine! :-D

    Thanks for stopping by!

  16. @Ashley @ Bookaholics Anonymous Too true! Villains coming just that close make for a more interesting and suspensful read, yeah? The good guys can't win too easily! :-D

    Thanks so much for following!
