Top Ten Tuesday: Villains in Mysteries and Thrillers

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Villains.

  1. I love your top ten! I have read some, some are on my list to read and I will have to look at the he other ones.

  2. Definitely some villians here! I have read several of these books, but will have to check out some others. I selected quite a few that are older books whereas you chose more recent. Interesting difference.

    1. Thanks, Carla! My original post for this topic had a lot of villains from older books, but I rewrote it and came up with this list of recent villains. Actually, I wrote three different versions of this topic before deciding what to post. On the plus side, I have two posts ready to go when I don’t have anything else scheduled. 😉
