Top Ten Tuesday – March 10, 2015: Top Ten Books Featuring Scoundrels


March 10, 2015

It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic was:
Top Ten Books for Readers Who Like _____ (so I chose SCOUNDRELS) 


Scoundrels are some of my favorite characters. Some are more unscrupulous than others. Some are nastier. Most of the ones I fall in love with are more of the rogue and rascal variety! I just love scoundrels. They’re clever, witty, smart, and daring — and they ALWAYS find a way to keep things lively! I had a lot of fun coming up with my favorite books featuring scoundrels — as we know, I love me some Swoony Snark — so check them out below!


So those are my favorite scoundrels! Some are more just swoony wise-crackers (Finn, Jason, Emilio, Thorne), some are clever schemers (Tyrion, Littlefinger, Sturmhond)  and some are honestly thieves (Locke Lamora, Hale). Some are a bit more good-natured than others but they all crack me up, fascinate me, and hold a little piece of my heart!


From rascals to trouble-makers to straight up thieves, scoundrels have a special place in my heart. Who are your favorites?
