Top 5 Tuesday || Top 5 Villains More Interesting Than the Hero

Top 5 Tuesday

It’s time for another T5T, as hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm! This week, we’re talking villains, really good villains!

Actually, though, the books I have in mind aren’t necessarily perfect for the prompt. They’re actually books with villains EQUALLY interesting compared to the heroes.

What can I say? Takes a lot for me to love a villain since I almost always love the heroes more.

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody || Imaginary Friends With Substance

“They say pressure can turn even a grain of sand into a pearl under the right circumstances.”

Daughter of the Burning City Cover

Goodreads || Amazon || Foody’s Twitter

Sixteen-year-old Sorina has spent most of her life within the smoldering borders of the Gomorrah Festival. Yet even among the many unusual members of the traveling circus-city, Sorina stands apart as the only illusion-worker born in hundreds of years. This rare talent allows her to create illusions that others can see, feel and touch, with personalities all their own. Her creations are her family, and together they make up the cast of the Festival’s Freak Show.

But no matter how lifelike they may seem, her illusions are still just that—illusions, and not truly real. Or so she always believed…until one of them is murdered.

Desperate to protect her family, Sorina must track down the culprit and determine how they killed a person who doesn’t actually exist. Her search for answers leads her to the self-proclaimed gossip-worker Luca, and their investigation sends them through a haze of political turmoil and forbidden romance, and into the most sinister corners of the Festival. But as the killer continues murdering Sorina’s illusions one by one, she must unravel the horrifying truth before all of her loved ones disappear.

Friday for Funsies || Blog Party!!!

Friday for Funsies

Last month, I tried this fun new idea of a blog party! It didn’t go so well then, but I’d like to try it again because it’s super simple, and it’s good for the community. All you have to do is comment on this post, and tell me what you think! It’s not about me today, not at all.

What do you love about blogging? What’s tough? What’s a post you’re really proud of? And most important, whose blogs do you recommend? And if there’s anything else about blogging you’ve just gotta share, get it out there!

In the future, I think I’m going to try and do this the second Friday of every month, and if I get enough people participating, I might start featuring some of the blogs recommended (and maybe some of the blogs doing the recommending!), which could be a lot of fun.

Happy Friday!
