Why I Love (Or Seriously Hate)...Dolores Umbridge

Well hello, Wednesday.  We meet again.  Wednesday means it's time for another installation of "Why I Love", a meme hosted by Alexis at Reflections of a Bookaholic.

It's really difficult for me to choose a favorite villain, this week's topic for Why I Love Wednesday.  I haven't read much recently that has a really good villain, which is quite sad.  However, I have come across several villains in the past.  I've written about one, but have decided to go another route this time.  Instead of discussing a villain that I love, I'm going with one that I despise.

My choice for favorite villain is...Dolores Umbridge.  Not because I like her or because she's my favorite anything, but because she is so incredibly horrible.  Maybe more horrible than Voldemort.  Maybe.  I just reread the entire Harry Potter series and it reminded me of how much I hate Umbridge.  She's completely evil and takes so much pleasure in her lofty position and inflicting pain on those with less authority (or whoever she perceives to have a lesser authority).  If you want to see a true villain, look no further than Rowling's Dolores Umbridge.  Pure, sadistic evil and portrayed brilliantly by Imelda Staunton in the movie franchise.

I must not tell lies........


  1. This is such a perfect pick and I think they did an awesome job casting her in the movie! Umbridge worked my entire nerves and boy was I glad when she got it in the movie!

  2. TOTALLY worse than Voldemort. Hands down, most evil villain ever. I get SO ANGRY every time I reread book 5. Which I just did. And Twilight too. Because I'm awesome!

  3. I'm not a Harry Potter fan so I've never even heard of this character, but I'm scared just from the post and comments!

    1. Trust me, she's evil. Thanks for stopping by, Nick :)

  4. This was a great pick! She was so horrible and she did it all with a smile.

  5. It's that smug smile that makes her all the worse.

    Stopping by on the Post A To Z Road Trip :)
