The Monday Poll: Love-to-Hate Evil Leaders in YA Lit

Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we asked which Fall sequel you’re looking forward to reading. 40% of you are eagerly awaiting the next book in Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Boys series, Blue Lily, Lily Blue, followed by 25% who are holding your breath for Robin LaFevers’ Mortal Heart. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!

This week, as we flip the calendar page to October and the season of spooks and scares, we’ve got villains on the brain. We want to know about your favorite evil leader in YA lit. And not just any old run-of-the-mill bad guy– we’re talking about those really conniving, manipulative characters who have managed to get into a position of authority and influence. [insert evil laugh here]
