This is the day of the week where we get to know each other better by answering a question devised by our lovely hostesses Parajunkee & Alisoncanread. We also gain new followers by joining each other's sites via GFC, so please let me know if you're a new follower since I automatically follow back. And now for this week's question....
Q. Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one?
I just skimmed all the books I have read on my goodreads list and didn't really see any villains I wanted to win. I guess instead there are villains I have felt bad for. For example, I truly felt bad for Cujo. He is just a dog who got rabies and didn't want to kill his owners and couldn't understand why he was attacking people. :(

Q. “Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?”
Hopefully I will never give up reading completely. Right now I mainly read young adult books. I don't know why it ended up that way either. If I couldn't read that genre of books anymore I would probably turn to classics. I don't read enough of them and try to squeeze one in.

Hi! New follower here:)ReplyDelete
CUJO! ROFL! Love that. I didn't think about the animals in books. Great answer.ReplyDelete
Hi, Angela! New follower as well :)ReplyDelete
I love what King does with his characters, how he weaves the evil with humanity.Sure as hell won't leave you indifferent.
Smart answer! I didn't think of villains who had no choice but to become villainous.ReplyDelete
I'm a new follower and I'm loving this week's topic.
Yes classics is a good pick too, didn't think of that one. Have a great week reading! New follower ;)ReplyDelete
Please don’t be shocked but this week I’ve got a straightforward, cut and dried answer to this week’s question... for a change!ReplyDelete
Root for villains? No way, no how. Why am I being so narrow minded? Follow me back to my blog and find out why – http://www.howardsherman.net

Is Cujo written from Cujo's perspective? I've only seen the movie so he freaked me out. But, if I could see his sympathy and that rabies was making him "evil," then I'd probably like him better.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by at my blog - I've felt the same, but I have wanted a villain to win on occasion. Either when I disliked the protagonist (pointlessly angsting protagonists? Introduce them to GRRM...) or when it's a 'grey vs grey' conflict, like with Brandin.ReplyDelete

I read just about every genre. If one favorite disappears, I think I could easily discover a new one.ReplyDelete
