Feature and Follow Friday (#2)

 
The Feature & Follow is a creative meme that allows bloggers to get to know each other, and gain more followers! It is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.
 
If you would like, it would be great if you followed me via Email, GFC, or Linky (all on the right). Let me know in the comments if you did, leave a link to your blog, and I will comment and follow back! I always do, I promise! Thank you so much!
 
Q:Who is your favorite villain from a book?
 
This one is almost a no-brainer for me. There is one villain that really sticks out - the Darkling from Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. This is not an endorsement for Team Darkling. I'd rather Alina end up with neither male character, but I am leaning towards Mal, because readers know next to nothing about the Darkling.
 
The Darkling doesn't always seem like a villain. At first, yes, he does, because he takes Alina. But, then it seems like he's her friend, and she depends on him. I love the quality of mystery about him. Despite the end of Shadow and Bone, I am kind of still on his side, because his motives, well, I understand them. But that's the thing with villain - they think they're the hero of their story.
 
What about you? :)

  4. The Darkling sure does sound interesting.
    The only villian that I can think of right now are all tv based. I am loving Hook right now on Once Upon a Time.
    Happy reading,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. You should definitely read Shatter Me if you already have it. It's soooo good. =)
