Top Ten Tuesday: Best Villains

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list. 

Everyone loves a good villain. We love to hate some characters and a good villain is one that is unrelenting in his villainous acts. Now, some of the characters on my list might not be villains to us readers, but in their world, they’re usually the mastermind of all the chaos that surrounds them, making them very powerful and influential people.

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters that would survive the Walking Dead

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

This weeks topic was a TV freebie. I love binge watching and this summer I spend a lot of time catching up with The Walking Dead and I am hooked. The show also had me thinking about if/how I would survive the zombie apocalypse and unless I become invincible I don’t think I’d survive long. However, I’m sure these characters would give the zombies a run for their money.

Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite 2016 Releases

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I was originally going to follow this week’s topic word for word and list my favourite 2016 releases so far.

So instead I am going to turn this topic into the top ten reasons you should read A Gathering of Shadows.
