Thank You Everyone who is stopping by for the Blog Hop and thank you to crazy-for-books for hosting the hop!

Book Blogger Hop

This week's Questions is...
 
"Who's your all-time favorite book villain?"

That's an easy question. I am going to have to go with Lord Voldemort - everybody loves to hate "he-who-must-not-be-named". Tom Marvolo Riddle is sure one crazy ass villain - and he scares EVERYONE. Children, housewives - even big burly men quake in their boots when they think about this guy. Dude's a creeper end of story. Oh, but let's talk about the Dementors for a second. They deserve a shout out as well. In fact, Harry Potter is just full of terrifically terrifying bad guys. Bellatrix is super psychotic as well. I definitely love to hate her. And Man, do I ever hate her.  Speaking of dear old Bellatrix, I always think of her when I hear that Heart song, Bebe Lestrange.. When I saw the last Harry Potter movie and she was being super evil, it kept running through my head :)

I also participate in Follow Friday, so those of you who popped by from that, thank you - and thank you parajunkee for hosting it!   


This Week's Follow Friday Question is..


What embarrassing thing have you done on cold medicine? 

Honestly,the only cold medicine I ever take is the kind that knocks you out. I mean, sometimes I take a cough decongestant or something, but that really doesn't make you loopy. The only time I can remember getting looping (from something medical.. lol) is when I got a filling and had some of the laughing gas. That was some crazy stuff. But I don't think I did anything strange, except tell my mother that I understood why people smoked weed. So, I guess that counts as my answer :)

Old follower hopping by. I'm pretty sure that you are not going to be the only one to name Voldemort as your favorite!!

I'm hopping by. I agree that Lord Voldemort is a fabulous villain. I think Delores Umbridge actually gets my ire up more than him.

Good answers! I thought of Snape too! The teacher that our heroes loathe! You'll never guess who I DID decide as my favourite villain.

Caroline (Bon Bons and Reveries) said...

Hi! Just stopping by on the hop. I chose Voldemort too! Such a great character-also scary and hate-worthy.
Have a great weekend :)

Alexis @ Reflections of a Bookaholic said...

I like your answer! I thought of choosing Snape, but he lost out at the last minute. Hopping by :)

Brittany @ Nice Girls Read Books said...

AHHH VOLDY! Now, that's an evil dude! :P Great pick!

the Vintage Bookworm said...

Ooh, great pick! I used Snape as mine. But I completely agree with you about Voldemort, and well, basically the fact that Harry Potter is definitely full of kick-ass villains.

Cheree said...

Just hopping by from the blog hop. Ooh, I loved Voldemort. He was definitely a great villain, good choice.

Julie Anne Lindsey said...

Sally Sapphire said...

Hi, hon - already a follower, but sharing the Friday love anyway. Nice choice with HP villains . . . I didn't completely fall for Bellatrix until the movies, but she's great.

DJL said...

Ah, he-who-must-not-be-named is an excellent choice of villains. Anyone who's willing to kill babies is top-notch villain material.

Happy hopping and reading!

flashlight_reader said...

At first, I thought that said "Beatrice" as in Beatrice Potter. I was thinking to myself, "huh?" Oops. We read The Tale of Peter Rabbit last night. Guess it's still on my mind.

Stephen T. Harper said...

Tribute Books Mama said...

He's mine to, a really scary guy.

TwoBibliomaniacs said...

Voldmort is a great bad guy, but I had to pick Umbridge from the HP series. That woman had a way of getting under my skin and boiling my blood. I'm getting all worked up just thinking about her.

Have a great week!

Christy @ReaderBee said...

"He who shall not be named" is a great pick! I picked Snape, but Voldemort is pure evil!

Here's mine-

Fireflywishes said...

Voldemort seems like a popular answer! With good reason. great shout out to the Dementors too! Those sure creeped me out as welll, I mean I guess the ability to soul suck will do that to you. lol One of the other bloggers mentioned Umbridge from the series as well, and even though that's not someone I would normally think of right off the bat - she was pretty scary!

I'm a new follower, great blog! Happy friday!

Jennifer said...

Hi, new follower! I just wanted to say I love your blog! I can't say if I think Voldemort is good villain...I haven't read the Harry Potters yet. I know, I know! I'll get to them...eventually!

Jennifer @ Just Nooking Around

Jackie said...

Oooh! Dementors! How could I forget about those baddies? They definitely do deserve a shout out.

Lucia said...

Madigan McGillicuddy said...

My favorite villain is Snape. I remember when the books first came out, everyone hated him so, but I thought he was great since he was the only one who ever told Potter that he wasn't above the rules!

This weekend I'm at a Children's Literature Conference with a terrible cold unfortunately, so hopefully I won't embarrass myself once I'm all dosed up with decongestants! Cross your fingers for me!

Two Readers Reviews said...

Nice pick! :) I picked Voldemort too!

New follower :)

Heather said...

Hah! Voldemort certainly sprang to mind when I was picking... but I was suspicious that it had to do with me just watching the movie, so I chose someone else, lol!
Check my pick out here
