Hi again! Today’s topic is the character we think would be on Santa’s naughty list. These can be villains or just characters you don’t like!
Top 5 Wednesday was created over on BookTube by the wonderful Laniey at gingerreadslaniey and run by the lovely Sam of Thoughts on Tomes . Also you can check out the Goodreads page for past and future topics.
Also warning this list may contain spoilers for Angels’ Blood by Nalini Singh, See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt, the events of the Wars of the Roses, Dollface by Renee Rosen and A Certain Smile by Francosie Sagan. So if you have an interest in this book please read with caution!
These characters are listed in no particular order.
George Duke of Clarence
He is the middle surviving son of Richard Duke of York and he really does live up to the middle child syndrome. He’s spoilt, entitled and feels like he’s not getting his fair share of his brother, Edward IV’s kingdom. Twice Clarence raised arms against his brother in hope of being king and twice he begged from his brother’s mercy when it looked like he was on the losing side. Clarence was always present in the later dramas of the Wars of the Roses and in the end became quite paranoid that everyone was plotting for his land and titles. In the end it was his brother that sentenced him to death. He was drowned in a barrel of Malmsey Wine for treason. Ah yep this medieval prince would definitely be on the naughty list.
The Archangel serial killer who makes Jack the Ripper look benevolent is definitely a character who makes the naughty list. At times I couldn’t read the descriptions of the crime scenes because it was grim, dark and gory. Uram is from Nalini Singh’s Angels’ Blood.
That’s all for me. Comment down below and let me know if you agree with my judgement on these characters and which characters you nominate for Santa’s naughty list.
Until next time, happy reading!
