Book Superlative Saturday (3)
Book Superlative Saturday is a meme hosted by Kayla at Bengal Reads. Each week Kayla picks a superlative (like the ones from your high school yearbook: “Most Likely to Succeed” or “Class Clown”), and we can pick which characters or books we think fall into those categories.
This week’s superlative is: Biggest Literary Jerk
I know I’ve read plenty of books that have jerks in them, but the first one that comes to mind is Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter series. He’s just such a despicable, bigoted man, and he, unlike other members of his family and other major “bad” characters in the series, never was redeemed. Plus, he was so horrible to Dobby! Sorry, Lucius, in my literary yearbook you don’t get the “Best Hair” or “Coolest Cane” award, you get “Biggest Jerk.” Maybe if you’d felt a little remorse for your actions, you might have gotten something better, hmm?
So, who would you pick? Let me know in the comments, or leave a link if you participated in the meme and I’ll stop by your blog!
