Friday Favourites: Fictional Criminals

I’m currently (hopefully) winging my way to Paris and I am so excited. I have such a soft spot for Paris. My very first visit to ‘The City of Lights‘ was on a school tour when I was 16. The trip was to Barcelona and we ferried to France and then drove through the country to Spain. We took a direct route on the way to Barcelona but detoured via Paris on the way back and in order to do so we spent the night on the bus. I woke up and the very first thing I saw was the Eiffel Tower. It was surreal and amazing and no matter how many times I’ve gone this is my lasting memory of it. So this is my long winded way of saying I’m excited and this post will be speedy. 😀

(Plan to do a gushing post about Paris which will include more details of this long ago trip in the near future!)

So fictional criminals! Well this is easy.

Vicious, Vicious, Vicious!!

This book still blows my mind. I love a good anti-hero but this book took that to the extreme and because of that it’s one of my all time favourite books.

I’m kind of saving Vengeful. I plan to do a Vicious reread once we are in the new house and then savor Vengeful after that. I plan to do this with an awful lot of books though so who knows when I’ll get to it.


Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong.

Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find—aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end?
