When Bad is Good: Wicked Women in Books We Just Love to Hate

in Fiction by

These days there are tons of awesome female characters on TV. Young, old, smart, naïve, good and evil. And while it’s always fun to root for the good characters (they save the day and they give us happy endings), let’s face it: sometimes the villains are WAY more interesting. Which is why certain wicked women make it impossible to tear our eyes away from the screen. These characters are complicated, cruel and they almost never make the right choices in life. Sure, they usually get what they deserve in the end, but it’s certainly a wild ride along the way!

A Sci-Fi Throwdown: 10 badass women from classic, award-winning novels

in Fiction by

Who is the most badass of them all? The BookTrib Nerd Squad recently took a break from making the universe safer for nerdkind to reply to an article by Kieran Shea at the Huffington Post where he curated a list of 9 Badass Women from Science Fiction.
