Top Seven Villains and Why I Love to Despise Them

I love books that have a well written villain. You know when a writer has written a villain well because you grow to despise that character. A villain can add a whole new dimension to a novel so here are my seven villains.


Voldemort from the Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling

I love the way Voldemort’s character is written. He is a villain and I can’t help but dislike him but at the same time once you learn his back story you realise that there is more to this character than you first thought.

Professor Umbridge from the Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling

I don’t think I really need to go into detail with this one. If you have read the books or watched the films you will know why I despise this woman.

The White Witch from The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S Lewis

Another extremely well written character. I can’t help but not like her. The things she does are in excusable.

Count Olaf from A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket

Count Olaf is a horrible person, but I find him hilarious when his plans don’t succeed. He always thinks he is cleverer than other people but he always gets caught out.

Miss Trunchbull from Matilda by Roald Dahl

I used to be petrified of Miss Trunchbull, I always found her intimidating and I wouldn’t have wanted to go to the school where she was. I always hated the chokey as well.

The Darkling from The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo

So I know the Darkling is horrible and did terrible things but I loved his character. He may be a villain but he is a villain that I love. So much complexity to his character and he isn’t all what he seems.

The Queen of Hearts from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

If you have read the books or watched the films you will understand why she is a part of this list.


There you have it, my top seven villains. Do you agree with this list? Is there anyone you would add to it?

My Top Ten OTPs

So, with February come Valentine’s Day and although I am not the biggest fan of this day, it does make me think about my OTPs. I have come up with a top 10 and trust me this was not easy to compile as I have so many OTPs. I have picked ships from TV, movies and books of course.


Kaz and Inej from A Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I love these two, the chemistry between them is great and I love their interactions.

Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley (Book Version)

I ship Harry and Ginny, however I much prefer the portrayal of their relationship in the books compares to the films. The book version has so much more depth to the relationship.

Queenie and Jacob from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

These two are just the cutest thing ever. They are adorable, enough said.

Dean and Castiel from Supernatural

Not book related but I love these two. Yes I know they aren’t a thing but I think they would make a great couple and if not they have the best bromance ever!

Sherlock and John Watson

Why yes, this pair are in my top 10 OTP list, why you ask. Because why not.

Ron and Hermione from Harry Potter

Of course these lovely two were going to be on the top ten. I always have and always will ship them together.

Red and Dorothy from Once Upon a Time

I must ship this couple, so cute together.

Emma Swan and Captain Hook from Once Upon a Time

I couldn’t have a top ten without including the most perfect couple on TV. They are amazing together and really balance each other well.

Dean and Seamus from Harry Potter

I really wished that this would have happened. I think it would have been a great pairing and they look adorable together.

Susan and Prince Caspian from The Chronicles of Narnia

Just look at them, so adorable together. They are a match made in heaven.


So, there you have it my top ten OTP’s. This was so hard to compile but I had so much fun creating my list. What do you think of these OTP’s? Do you agree or disagree?

Broken Dolls Series Review, by Lauren from Literary Wisdom

When I first started blogging the very first review I did on my blog was Broken Dolls by Tyrolin Puxty. When I wrote it I made loads of spelling mistakes and forgot to spell check my review, I guess I was excited about have my first review on my blog that I just never thought to check the spelling. I have been blogging for just over a year and I love it, yes I still make mistakes and my reviews aren’t always long but I love what I do. I love getting to share with people my passion for books and doing reviews for the books I love. So I have included below my first review Broken Dolls (spelling mistakes included) and I am also going to put a review I have done for Shattered Girls which is the sequel to Broken Dolls. Some of you may think not much has change but to me I feel as though I am becoming better at reviews with each one that I write but I’ll let you make up your own mind.

My First Review – Broken Dolls: 5 stars

Broken Dolls is such a breathtaking read. I read this in almost one sitting it was truly captivating. I instantly fell in love with Ella and was eager to find out what was happening and what was going to happen. Whilst reading this, there was development after development. Just when I thought I had found out the plot, there was a twist that took it off in a completely different direction. I like all the characters in the story and wanted to know more about them. My feeling towards the professor changed so many times the more I read. I went from thinking he was just a crazy professor, then I didn’t like him very much but in the end I felt really sorry for him and understood why he did what he did. I just wanted to give him a hug, that’s how lost I got in the novel. I did love Ella at the beginning but by the end I found her really bitter and a little bit selfish. I know she went through a traumatic experience that affected her massively and I could understand her wanting to be cured but although the professor tried he wasn’t able to fix her and nearer the end when you find out what happens Ella is so mean to the professor and he already blames himself but he doesnt need Ella saying the things she did to him. I think she could have with time become at peace with her situation however she decided to run away from it. This was not a long novel however it packed a punch and left me wanting more. It is a novel that pulls you in and before you know it you are lost in the novel and are walking beside the characters and feeling everything they feel. A great read and I will definitely be picking up the next one when it comes out.

My Review for Shattered Girls (with slightly more experience)

Title – Shattered Girls

Genre – Science Fiction – Horror – Fantasy

Summary from Goodreads

Ella’s decision to return to her doll form has caused more trouble than she ever thought possible.

Only Ella doesn’t think they’re robotic at all…


My Thoughts

5 out of 5 stars

Well this book was amazing, I loved it just as much as the first one and Tyrolin Puxty’s writing is amazing. There is just something about her writing that pulls you in and just when you think you have got it, nope you are sent down a spiraling path away from what you thought.
I really enjoyed the plot of the story and it kept you wanting to read more to find out just exactly what was going on. The characters were really enjoyable as well throughout the story. In the first book I loved Ella but by the end didn’t really like her, however events that happened in this book have changed what I thought about her and I actually really like her as a character. Gabby was well written and it was great to see how she matured throughout the books. Lisa was well Lisa, a little crazy and you never know what her full intentions are. I don’t want to give away to many details because I don’t want to spoil it. I was wowed by the events that happened in the story and I can’t wait to read the next one. I highly recommend this series as it is a short, addicting thought provoking set of books and and as I said before I can not wait for the next one.

There you go, my very first review and a new review after some experience. I hope you enjoyed reading my post.
