Blog Hop: Who is your all-time favorite book villain?
This is a really tough one, since villains don't typically stand out strongly in my memory like protagonists. Harry Potter is the main set of books that come to mind. There are lots of villains in HP, like the Dursleys, Snape, Malfoy, etc. But the three big ones are Lord Voldemort, Bellatrix LeStrange, and Delores Umbridge.
In some ways Umbridge is the most interesting villain of the three. As we learn in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and subsequent books, there are few lines she is not willing to cross. And the most interesting thing is that she is on the right side! I love how JK Rowling showed that people can do horrible things in the name of evil and in the name of good.
