Book Blogger Hop #4

A weekly meme hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy for Books.
This meme is a way for book bloggers and readers to connect with other book lovers. Each weekend a new question is posted for book bloggers to answer on their blogs. The Book Blogger Hop lasts from Friday to Monday each week. Go to this weeks post to find out more information on this meme.

This weeks question is:
Who's your all-time favorite book villain? 
Severus Snape from the Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling.

Yes, I'm aware that he is one of the top villains of YA lit, but I have to chose him as my all-time favorite villain. As soon as I saw this question, he popped into my head.[Spoiler alert here] I hated him throughout the series, yet when he died I cried. [End of Spoiler alert] I then realized that I had loved him just as much as I had hated him. How insane is that? 

He was horrible to Harry, Hermione and Ron throughout the series, but he was also very bad-ass. He always made me laugh with his snarky comments. Also, Alan Rickman, the guy who plays Snape in the movie series is PERFECT! He definitely adds to my love for Snape.

  3. Same here. I loathe him all through out the series too but after finding out what he did and then he died, I just feel so bad!

    I think it's Alan's voice that makes him the perfect actor to play Snape.

    Happy Friday! <3

  4. Thanks for hopping by my blog! I hate to admit this, but I haven't read any of the Harry Potter books (shame on me) or seen any of the movies. I'm sure they are wonderful books, but I'm sort of stuck on paranormal romance and urban fantasy right now. Maybe I'll read them in the future. :)

    Happy Reading!

  5. Aww man great pick! I love him too, but I don't really see him as a villain because of the ending! OMG I cried.

  6. Snape and Umbridge were my two biggest villains in the HP series. Both characters really impacted me. I had a hard time reconciling how Snape treated people like Neville even after he was supposedly redeemed in book 7.

    Have a great week!

  10. Popular answer this week, but Snape's snarkiness has always been memorable.

  11. I considered Snape, but I changed my mind at the last minute. But I did pick a similar type of villain. One that is misunderstood and not a true villain.

  13. I love Snape - loved him from the beginning. I love how snarky he is, that's the perfect description for it. And I like that he's the ONLY adult who is telling Potter that he's not above the rules! Everyone else, up to and including Dumbledore is telling Harry, "Oh, *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* here's an invisibility cloak, and a marauder's map, and don't do anything I wouldn't do *chuckles indulgently*"

    I'm going to be like one of those crazy Boba Fett devotees who insist he must have made it out of the Sarlaac pit.
    Snape gone? Noooooo! That's impossible! I refuse to believe it.
