This week on Twitter saw the return of #booktalk, the weekly chat of HuffPost Books where you can spill your feelings with other book lovers on your favorite characters, heart-breaking stories and your guilty pleasure reading habits. A few weeks ago you gave us dozens and dozens of haunting quotes from your favorite works of literature; this week we wanted to know about the characters you love to hate.
So, tell us: villains in literature. Which ones make you sick? Which ones do you love to hate? Which ones do you actually feel sympathy for? Check out just a few of our favorites here, and add yours in the comments below or on Twitter at #booktalk.
