Follow Friday [22]

This Week's Question: Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one?

My Answer:
Anne Boleyn from Carolyn Meyer's Doomed Queen Anne.

Okay, she wasn't really a villain, but she was very selfish and would stop at nothing to become queen. Even so, I couldn't help but root for her throughout the book.


  1. I haven't read that one! I'm a new follower, your 200th loyal stalker... I love your blog background, it's fabulous. :)

  10. Anne Boleyn as a villain? That sounds awesome! My choice was Wile. E Coyote, he just never caught a break! Poor fool.

  13. Anne Boleyn counts as a villain because that's how people viewed her in Tudor times. I've always rooted for, though - I know she was terrible to Catherine of Aragon and the Princess Mary, but I guess I've always admired her guts and ambition. She really achieved the impossible my getting Henry to divorce and break with the Catholic Church. And she has to marry Henry or we don't get Queen Elizabeth I.

  14. Hello! Hopping through and following new blogs!

    So... not familiar with the book, but if it looks anything like the real thing, I can imagine why you'd pick her like the villain! But as you say, driven people do have something to them no? Hehe...

  15. i have a few.
    1. in The Forest of Hands and Teeth, the main character Mary is so selfish i was rooting for the zombies. i like the rest of the series well enough though.
    2. in Ashes, Ashes, this books plot was so see through i was hoping for a bomb to go off and kill everybody, just so something unexpected happens. (not a villain, i know but i think it fits).
    i'm sure there are more, but i can't remember.
