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........
