Follow Friday (5)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read

Here is this week's question:

Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one??

No. That's pretty simple. I looked back through my 'read' list on Goodreads and there weren't really any bad guys that I was rooting for. 
However, there ARE a lot of kind of bad characters that I love and I root for so I get to see them interact with the main characters more. For example, I love Bump from Stacia Kane's Downside Ghosts series. I love how he's so slick and slimy but somehow you still like him. I just picture him in fully decked out pimp gear (mostly because that's how Stacia Kane writes him...).

"Everything was gilded or covered in fur, as though Bump had visited the Liberace Museum and decided to go it one better.” (Unholy Ghosts)

I also adore Annette from the Cat and Bones series! I hated her in the beginning, but after the infamous knock down drag out fight she had with Cat in book can I not love her? And with that, I feel I should share some of the wonderful Cat and Annette moments with those of you who haven't read the series (which of course means that you live UNDER A ROCK!

"I think we need to have a little talk, woman to skank."

"Do you know what you’ve done?” I asked in a bland tone. Annette gave me an inquiring look. “You’ve gotten on my last nerve.” 
The table went crashing into her before she could blink, and then my fist found a home in her perfectly arranged hair."

"I'm going to knock the slut out of you, Annette...and that should take some doing, you uppity English tramp."

"And that, Annette, is what they call Pilates." (All from One Foot in the Grave)

Alrighty, that's it! Thank you for visiting and don't forget to enter my current giveaway! Happy reading!


  1. I loved Annette as well! Well, hated her at first, yes, but she kind of got to me as the first book progressed, I don't know why.
