Tine’s for the Rest of Us - Bubbly Booknerd
“Won’t You Be My Villaintine?” Between Galentine’s and now Villaintine’s I’m finally on board this week! If you saw my TTT: Favorite Bookish OTPs post, you’ll recall my distain for Valentine’s Day. 😈 All of the alternative celebrations (there’s more, I just have hearteyes for my two faves) are like “Festivus for the rest of us” during this lovers’ season—and I’M HERE FOR IT!!! 🖤 Naturally, I’ve decided to do a bookish favorites mash-up list for Galentine’s and Villaintine’s. Here’s the run down of my favorite morally ambiguous villains / antiheroes / misunderstood heroes. (Yes, I’ve been asking myself the villain-hero question for years before I read Vicious last fall… 😉) The villains list blends nicely into besties so I couldn’t resist combining the two into one. Yay for some fitting into both celebrations! Favorite Bookish Villains & Besties ~ In no particular order (Villains 1st) ~ Victor & Eli Vicious by V.E.
