Follow Friday and book blogger hop

The question this week is: Have you ever wanted the villain to win at the end of the story?

I cannot think of any example no. Though I guess I have wanted a villain to turn good. I have wanted the villain to make the choice to do the right thing so that everyone could be happy in the end. Alas, short answer and quite boring, but I really can't think of anything else to say. I suppose my answer would have been more interesting if I could have thought of an example of a villain I had wanted to win at the end of the story, but I don't so you all will have to just recommend some twisty villain story to me in the comments.

Crazy for Books asks:

What genre would you switch to if your favorite genre ceased to exist?

Usually I read a lot of fantasy, and I like it a lot because it takes you to another place and helps you discover new things. So I think if fantasy ceased to exist I would start to read more historical novels because they are similar in the way that they take you to another time and place and give you a new experience.

If you are stopping by please follow! Have an awesome weekend.

I love your answer to the BBH. I hadn't thought about historical novels in that way before - I've never made the comparison!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I'm with you, historical would be the way to go if they got rid of fantasy

Hi Gamila, new follower here! :)

I feel the same way about fantasy books, they are some of my favorite stories too! I am reading The Iron King by Julie Kagawa right now and it is so amazing, definitely takes you to another world ;) Historical fiction is another awesome genre!

You can see my FF post for this week at the link below-- would love if you stopped by! :)

I've definitely wanted bad guys to turn good in the past, too! I personally have rooted for bad guys overall though. ;) But only those with a good back story.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Yeah, I feel like a lot of people have been having trouble coming up with a villain for this question :/ New follower, by the way :)

TG said...

Like you, I never want a villain to succeed, but I can be sympathetic to them.

New follower and BTW, I love how your blog looks! Happy Friday!

I'm seeing a trend that no one ever wants the villain win. Even my wife answered the same on her blog, Hippies, Beauty, and Books. Oh My! Personally, I want to see a gripping story where the villain wins, just ounce. I can't think of any stories off hand that would fit that bill. Maybe I'll write one?

New Follower here, visiting from Crazy for Books... My preferred genre is YA too and if they stopped publishing it i probably wouldn't stop reading, but i would read a lot less and write a lot more, even if it was just for myself. I'm admin over at I'd love for you to come visit when you get a chance!
