A Cocktail & Conversation With TB&TB -- If You Could Be A Book Villain...

Every other Thursday (errrr Friday this week) here at the Broke & The Bookish is  A Cocktail & Conversation time. One of the TBTB members will pose a question to 2-3 of the other members of TB&TB crew about books, life, music, etc and then they'll answer and we can converse about it. So grab a cocktail & cozy up for some conversation. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, friends.


 Jana asks:

If you had to be a book villain, which one would you choose to be and why?

Lori says
:  I think I would want to be the Queen of Hearts from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.  It would be a lot of fun to just be able to scream "Off with their heads" when I got mad and something be done about it.  I'd get to live in Wonderland and would get to be a character that isn't really despicable, but isn't liked.  Plus, I think that there is some really good potential for some interesting outfits.

Jamie says
: OH THIS IS HARD because I'd never WANT to be a terrible person like many of these villains but I'd say that if I HAAAAD to be a villain I'd pick Queen Levana from Cinder because I'd like to travel through space and her whole glamour thing would be useful in getting what I wanted -- I could trick people into seeing me as the most beautiful creature on earth. The bad stuff about her would suck but WHATEVER I'M A BADDIE SO I DON'T CARE.

Paula says:
Could I be Big Brother? I know if that counts as a villain. I want to be an entire dystopian government. If I had to choose an actual villain it would be The King in Yellow from The Book of Heroes by Miyuki Miyabe.  The King in Yellow has crossed over to our world from the land of books and is the manifestation of every villain ever told. So he's a pretty bad dude and he's here to ruin your day (or life).

If you had to be a villain/baddie from a book who would YOU choose?


  1. Jadis the White Witch from Chronicles of Narnia. She can make endless supplies of Turkish Delight, plus I'm a massive fan of winter :)

  2. Professor Moriarty..for all the usual reasons - rich, genius, and good looking..of course I would change him to a her!

  3. Hmmm... this is a GREAT question! I think I'd have to pick Cersei Lannister from A Game of Thrones, maybe sans the whole brotherly love ordeal UNLESS it was w/ the Jamie from the show, cause he's soooooo sexy! Okay, I think I just grossed myself out a bit there.

    Anyway, if I'm going to be bad, I want to be, like, really bad. Besides, I find her to be quite the layered character and I have a thing for "villains" who are more than what they seem. Cersei'S not always selfish (she cares about her family!), she's smart and beautiful and has this incredible thirst for power. I'd love to know what that feels like, even if only for a moment.

  4. So for a lady villain I'm with Lori and would want to be the Queen of Hearts.If I was a guy villain I would want to be Captain Hook from Peter maybe the girl version of him.

  5. Hmm, I think I'm with Melissaa!?!- I would probably want to be Captain Hook, too! :)
