On the Fourth Day of Book Blogmas

Four Naughty Characters that will be getting coal this year!

The Naughtiest Characters in Literature

This is another good prompt today. I had to think about this one for a bit but I ended up with these four Naughtiest Characters in books:

  1. Gideon Cross from the series Crossfire by Sylvia Day. I have a love/hate relationship with him
  2. Mr “M” from the series One Night by Jodi Ellen Malpas. I don’t know what it is about him but there is more to him then meets the eye.
  3. President Snow from the series Hunger Games. He is just aweful and should be on the top of the list.

I will need to come back and edit this because I can’t think of a fourth one. I know there is tons of bad boys but I just can’t think of one right now.
