Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish (click the link to visit them) who pick a different topic each week.
This week the topic is: Top Ten Villains!
I’m very happy with this topic as it’s perfect for Horror October! I’m going to narrow the topic down to the most swoon-worthy baddest of the bad guys, but I’m choosing characters from both page and screen. Let’s face it, there’s gonna be a lot of vampires in this list. Sigh.
These guys take ‘always falling for the bad boys’ to another level!
Spuffy forever! I’ve always loved Spike, he’s clearly the best. Much better than that lamo Angel.
Lestat (Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles)
I’m not talking about Tom Cruise here, although I think he played it brilliantly. Lestat is so the original bad boy vampire that we really want to want us, right? Plus, he’s a rock star on occasion.
The Darkling (The Grisha series)
It’s so wrong but so right. I haven’t read the final book yet but I’m praying for more evil-hot Darkling action.
Eric (True Blood)
Skarsgard. Nuff said.
Paul Spector (The Fall)
I couldn’t give two shits about the whole 50 Shades thing but OMG Dornan in The Fall is just ueghdhsoigahuy. He’s a serial killer, which is bad, granted…but his accent, and face and well, everything. IT’S TOO MUCH.
Kasper Varn (The Dark Heroine)
I only read the first book in this series and I can’t remember a great deal about it tbh. Apart from the main vampire being hot.
Rowan (Throne of Glass series)
Another non-vampire. Check me out. The last book I read in the series was Heir of Fire (I’m behind, I know) where we meet Rowan, the fae prince and warrior. He’s pretty vicious. He’s also totes hot amiright!? I must be, you just have to look at all the crazygood fan art of him. Swoon.
Gavriel (The Coldest Girl in Coldtown)
OK that was short lived. Here’s another vampire who shouldn’t make our knees go weak but does. At least he’s kind of nice by the end of the book…I think.
David Bowie. Cod Piece. Leather. Glass balls. Enough. I mean he might try to steal your baby but at least he’ll sing while he’s doing it.
Hannibal (TV series)
Never before has Hannibal Lecter been even the slightest bit hot. Until Mads Mikkleson. What is it about him? It’s so wrong…
*Bonus Pick* Damon (The Vampire Diaries)
Oh Damon. He’s no Spike but he’d do.
